The third-generation Honda Pilot has been popular with SUV buyers since its introduction last year, but Honda has already made a number of improvements for the 2017 model year. The award-winning Honda Pilot will now be available with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality, and features a new 8-inch, fingerprint resistant touchscreen.
What makes the 2017 Honda Pilot stand out is its extremely versatile and comfortable interior which has seating for up to eight passengers without having to compromise cargo space. Entering the third row is easier with the Pilot thanks to an available one-touch second row seats and a large third-row entryway.
A lightweight, aerodynamic body and an advanced direct-injected 3.5-liter i-VTEC V6 engine with Variable Cylinder Management gives the 2017 Honda Pilot excellent fuel economy for its class. Responsive 6-speed and 9-speed automatic transmissions are available, result in EPA fuel economy rating of up to 20 mpg city and 27 mpg highway.
The available Intelligent VTM4 all-wheel drive system is the most technologically advanced in any mainstream, three-row SUV, and can dynamically distribute torque between the front and rear axles and between the left and right rear wheels. The i-VTM4 system provides better all-weather handling and neutral, accurate steering under power not typically seen in other SUVs.
Honda also engineered the Pilot to be one of the safest vehicles on the road with top safety ratings and a standard Multi-Angle Rearview Camera. Available safety features include LaneWatch, a blind spot information system, Collision Mitigation Braking System, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Keeping Assist System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Road Departure Mitigation and Rear Cross Traffic Monitor.
