Under the hood of all six trims of the Pilot, you’ll find a robust 3.5L V6 engine. This beast of a machine packs quite the punch with 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. When it comes to transmissions and drivetrains, there are some variations between trim levels.
The LX, EX, and EX-L are all paired with a 6-speed transmission and 2-wheel drive (2WD). Thanks to this duo, the Pilot LX, EX, and EX-L trims all achieve an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 19 city/27 highway MPG— perfect for running around town or taking trips.1 However, you can upgrade these trims to have all-wheel-drive (AWD). With AWD, the Pilot LX, EX, and EL-trims reach an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 18 city/26 highway MPG.1
The Touring is the next trim and upgrades to a 9-speed automatic transmission for more precise handling. With standard 2WD, you can expect an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 20 city/27 highway MPG with the Pilot Touring.1 As for the Pilot Touring with AWD, it achieves an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 19 city/26 city MPG.1
Finally, you have the Elite and Black Edition trim levels. These top-tier trims also offer the 9-speed automatic transmission but come standard with the Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ (i-VTM4®) AWD system. With this enhanced AWD system, the Pilot Elite and Black Edition trims produce an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 19 city/26 highway MPG.1
To make sure all Pilot drivers and passengers have perfect peace of mind, each trim level comes standard with Honda Sensing®. This suite of driver-assistive technology elevates your awareness behind the wheel, prevents collisions, and much more. With this suite, you’ll have the following features:
Auto High-Beam Headlights are also standard! Additionally, you can opt for the blind spot information system with cross-traffic monitor for heightened awareness. Other standard safety systems include a multi-angle rearview camera, Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control, and the Anti-Lock Braking System.
