Honda has long been a leader in the SUV and crossover market and with the third-generation Honda Pilot that leadership will continue. The all-new 2016 Pilot was designed, developed, and produced right here in the United States.
Over the past 12 years, Americans have purchased more than 1.4 million Pilots and 63% of Pilot owner’s trade in their old Pilot for a new one.
For 2016, Honda engineers reworked every aspect of the Pilot from the ground up, making it more family-friendly and giving it more premium features and technology, including a new upper Elite trim.
The 2016 Pilot receives a new Honda Earth Dreams Technology direct-injected 3.5-liter V6 engine. This engine is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission on the LX, EX, and EX-L trims. For the Touring and Elite models, they get a nine-speed automatic transmission.
The Pilot’s safety also gets a technological upgrade with a suite of Honda Sensing features, such as LaneWatch and a Blind Spot Indicator. The Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure is made from hot-stamped ultra-high strength steel and aims to make the 2016 Pilot, the safest Pilot ever.
