Honda Pilot LX
The Honda Pilot runs on a 3.5L V6 engine that gets up to 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. Front-wheel drive comes standard on the base trim, so you can tow up to 3,500 pounds. An Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ (i-TVM4®) All-Wheel Drive (AWD) System is also available. The AWD system bumps your towing capacity up to 5,000 pounds.
The Pilot LX features cloth seats and space for up to eight people. You can sync your phone to a 5-inch LCD screen in the center of the dashboard. Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® comes standard, so you can stream music and make hands-free calls.
This is also where you can check behind your SUV using the multi-angle rearview camera. It’s just one of the driver-assistance features that comes standard. The Honda Sensing® system is also included and helps keep you safe with safety features such as:
- Collision Mitigation Braking System™
- Road Departure Mitigation System

Honda Pilot EX
The Honda Pilot EX is prepared for all sorts of weather with LED fog lights, heated front seats, tri-zone automatic climate control, and heated side mirrors that can quickly melt frost and snow. It also offers easier access to the back seats with one-touch 2nd-row seats. Plus, you’ll be more comfortable behind the wheel in a 10-way power driver’s seat with power lumbar support.
This trim also comes with more technology. The infotainment system gets upgraded to an 8-inch touch-screen that includes Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, an SMS Text Message Function, SiriusXM® Radio, and HD Radio™.
You’ll also have more awareness when you’re changing lanes with a standard Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Monitor.
Honda Pilot EX-L
The L in Honda Pilot EX-L could easily standard for luxury. It comes with leather seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a leather gear shift knob. It also makes packing up easier with a power tailgate. Inside, your copilot can get more comfortable with a 4-way power front-passenger’s seat. An automatic-dimming rearview mirror also comes standard to reduce glare.
Honda Pilot Touring
Blue ambient LED lighting welcomes you into the Honda Pilot Touring. This trim upgrades the cabin with heated front and rear seats, illuminated cup holders, a Wi-Fi Hotspot, and a more advanced infotainment system.
The Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ with Voice Recognition and Honda HD Digital Traffic can deliver turn-by-turn directions. Meanwhile, the Cabin Talk® In-Car PA System makes it easier to talk to passengers in the third row. You’ll also have better sound quality with a 10-speaker premium audio system.
The Touring also offers more ways to carry your cargo with standard roof rails. Plus, there’s no need to get the keys out with a hands-free access power tailgate.
Honda Pilot Elite
The 2nd-row bench seat gets replaced with a pair of captain’s chairs in the Honda Pilot Elite. This gives you a convenient center aisle while still featuring seating for seven passengers. Up front, you’ll be able to relax on perforated heated and ventilated seats. To brighten things up, a panoramic roof comes standard, too.
While all-wheel drive was available on other trim levels, the Elite trim makes i-TVM4® AWD standard.
