When you're in the market for a vehicle, learning everything you can about it before heading to the lot is important. This is especially true when it comes to SUVs. Whether or not you've driven them before, they range in size and that can alter your driving style significantly. To make sure you know what size car you'll be maneuvering, the team at Mile High Honda has created this 2020 Honda Pilot dimensions guide. Below, drivers from the Centennial, Aurora, and Denver areas can see how big this vehicle is-inside and out-so you'll know exactly what's in store when you schedule a test drive.

2020 Honda Pilot: Exterior Dimensions

To make sure this SUV has enough oomph to carry its 3.5-liter V6 engine, 6-speed automatic transmission, the Eco Assist™ System, and all the other reliable components under the hood, Honda has made it strong and powerful. Let's explore some of these exterior measurements:
  • Wheelbase: 111 inches
  • Length: 196.5 inches
  • Height: 70.6 inches
  • Width: 78.6 inches
  • Front & Rear Track: 66.3 in.
  • Curb Weight: 4,036 lbs.
Given the Honda Pilot is a full-size SUV, it's no surprise the above measurements are a bit on the larger side. However, they still leave plenty of room to maneuver into tighter parking spaces or under parking garages. When it comes to less commonly traveled streets, like off-roading sites or dirt back roads, the Pilot's 7.3 inches of ground clearance allows the vehicle to masterfully glide over rocks and other debris.

2020 Honda Pilot: Towing Capacities

The Honda Pilot comes standard with 2-wheel drive while also offering drivers the option to upgrade to Honda's Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ AWD (all-wheel drive) System. Both drive systems come with impressive towing capacities, so no matter which one you choose, you'll be good to go in the hauling department.
With the 2-wheel drive configuration, drivers can take advantage of 3,500-pound towing power, while those who choose all-wheel drive get a slightly increased towing capacity of 5,000 pounds. These weights are enough to haul larger items like boats or trailers.

2020 Honda Pilot: Interior Measurements

Knowing the size inside your 2020 Pilot provides a lot of benefits. This information allows you to know exactly how many passengers can travel along with you and how comfortable you'll be while driving. Let's take a look inside this Honda through the interior dimensions listed in the chart below:

 As you can see, there's plenty of room for everyone inside this SUV. These eight seats aren't merely roomy-they're rather comfortable to boot. Up front, drivers can relax atop optional 10-way power adjustable seating, including power lumbar support. Front-row passengers can enjoy similar luxuries thanks to the available front-passenger seat with 4-way power adjustment.

2020 Honda Pilot: Cargo Dimensions

 This Honda outdoes itself when it comes to cargo space. With 60/40 split 2nd- and 3rd-row seats, you can configure an area that can fit just about anything. When both seats are folded down, it creates a large, flat area you can fill up to your heart's content. You can also move these seats in different ways, so you'll still have room in the back as well as space for your passengers.
  • Cargo Volume Behind Third Row: 18.5 cubic feet
  • Cargo Volume Behind Second Row: 55.9 cubic feet
  • Cargo Volume Behind First Row: 109 cubic feet
  • Passenger Volume: 152.9 cubic feet
  • Seating Capacity: Up to 8 passengers
If you're looking to fully maximize all this cargo space, Honda offers several optional cargo accessories. Keep all your belongings nice and tidy with the cargo bin dividers that also act as a boundary between the third row. There's also the cargo net that's great for keeping items, like grocery bags, upright and secure. Speaking of cargo, loading and loading it all is a breeze with the available hands-free access power tailgate. Simply give the rear bumper a slight kick to easily open the trunk.

2020 Honda Pilot: Space-Adding Exterior Accessories

While the Honda Pilot is generously spacious on its own, you can still add even more room with Honda's selection of exterior accessories. Some of these upgrades include: Frame Mount Bike Attachment: The next time you're looking to ride the trails, forget about disassembling your bike for transport. Instead, just connect it to the optional frame mount bike attachment. Added to available crossbars, it fits most adult bikes and includes a lockable attachment. Medium Roof Box: This handy roof box adds more storage space while also protecting your gear from the elements. The medium-size box that features 16 cubic feet of lockable storage is impact- and UV-resistant and can hold up to 110 pounds. Kayak Attachment: Heading to the lake for the weekend? Now, you can easily bring along your kayak for the journey with the available kayak attachment. It supports kayaks up to 36 inches in width and holds up to 86 pounds. The two included 15-foot straps and one tie-down kit hold everything in place. Related Posts:
