The Honda Pilot has been living up to its name. Ever since the Pilot’s original introduction to the market as a 2003 model, it has been expertly guiding people safely from destination to destination. Now, there’s a third-generation Pilot ready to come out this summer—and it’s so good; so much improved that you can just put the part of your brain that worries about driving on autopilot. The new 2016 Honda Pilot has a new outside, improved interior features, and all kinds of options—making it the easy choice in the midsize SUV market this year.
The new Pilot will again be powered by an EarthDreams Technology engine, this time a 3.5L SOHC i-VTEC engine paired to either a six-speed or nine-speed automatic transmission. That powertrain churns out 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque, giving you plenty of chutzpah for any trip, whether across the country or across the street. You’ll be safe no matter where you go, too, with an advanced AWD system and the Honda Sensing safety suit that includes Collision Mitigation Braking System and Lane Departure Warning.
The new Pilot also comes with options like a panoramic glass roof, heated and ventilated front seats, heated second-row chairs, new LED headlights, rain sensing windshield wipers, and many other things. It comes in all kinds of trims, too, with the Elite trim topping the line.
