The 2018 Honda Pilot is one of the best family crossovers on the market today. It offers tons of interior space, good fuel economy, and lots of standard features.
The Honda Pilot is available in five trim levels: LX, EX, EX-L, Touring, and Elite.
Every Pilot is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine rated at 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. This is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, but all-wheel drive is available on all trims. When properly equipped, the Pilot can tow up to 5,000 pounds.
The Pilot may be big, but its sleek lines give it a sophisticated look that will make you proud to drive it anywhere. It comes standard with 18-inch alloy wheels. The EX trim adds heated mirrors, LED running lights, automatic headlights, and remote engine start.
Take a seat inside the Pilot and you will find room for up to eight passengers. The available second row captain’s chairs reduce capacity to seven. However, there is plenty of room for everyone with still a decent amount of cargo space behind the third row. Every Pilot comes standard with Bluetooth® connectivity, a five-inch central display screen, a USB port, a seven-speaker sound system, and an auxiliary audio input jack.
Families want to stay safe on the road and the Pilot delivers with a standard rearview camera, traction and stability control, antilock brakes, and airbags. The EX model adds automatic headlights, dynamic guidelines for the rearview camera, and the Honda LaneWatch™ system. The optional Honda Sensing package includes Lane Departure Warning and Intervention, adaptive cruise control, Road Departure Intervention, and Forward Collision Warning with Automatic Emergency Braking.
