Comfortable and versatile family car.

The Honda Pilot is in my opinion the most versatile and comfortable family SUV. It gets great gas mileage while providing comfortable seating for 8, and you can still pull your boats and trailers. Really love this car.

A perfect vehicle

I have wanted a Honda Pilot for as long as I can remember. I finally purchased one about a month ago and I couldn’t be happier. It is so roomy yet quiet and comfortable. I commute an hour each day to work and I love the way it handles on the interstate. My family lives 3 1/2 hours away—-I can’t wait to make the trip to see them. Car seat installation looks to be a snap and all the features in my model (Touring) are the best

Most convenient, reliable car that I owned

The car met all my needs. Is in a excellent condition, smooth drive, perfectly functioning interior. Was used only to commute to work, no problems with the car.

2017 Honda Pilot Overview


The 2017 Honda Pilot is a mid-size SUV that seats up to 8 passengers across 3 rows. It competes with the Ford Explorer, Dodge Durango, and Mazda CX-9. This year, it remains largely unchanged.

Five trims are available: the LX, EX, EX-L, Touring, and Elite.

Last year, the Pilot was completely redesigned, sharing many of its sleek design cues with the compact CR-V. The front grille blends in with the headlight clusters, forming a triangular crest shape. The lower fascia is slightly masked by the black-clad underbody trim. Available features include LED headlights, front fog lights, a power liftgate, roof rails, 20-inch alloy wheels, and a panoramic glass moonroof.

Under the hood, the Pilot is powered by a standard 280-hp, 3.5-liter V-6 mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The Touring and Elite models receive a 9-speed automatic. Front-wheel drive comes standard, while all-wheel drive is optional. The V-6 engine features cylinder deactivation for increased efficiency, while the Touring and Elite models both also feature start/stop engine capability for added fuel economy.

Inside, the Pilot’s second row can be configured with either a pair of captain’s chairs or a bench seat. The bench seat comes with a folding mechanism that operates with one button to give easy access to the third row. Standard features include push-button start, air conditioning, USB port, Bluetooth connectivity, and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility. Move up just one trim level to the EX however and it adds HondaLink infotainment with Pandora internet radio, an extra USB port, an improved 8-inch display screen, HomeLink remote, and tri-zone automatic climate control. Also available are heated/ventilated front seats, leather upholstery, navigation, acoustic glass for a quieter cabin, Blu-ray rear entertainment system, and remote engine start. You can also add a 115-volt outlet and two more USB ports in the rear to keep the whole family’s devices charged.

The Pilot has a slew of available safety technology, including LaneWatch and Honda Sensing, which adds a collision mitigation braking system, forward collision warnings, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control. Standard safety features include a multi-angle rearview camera, antilock brakes, vehicle stability assist, and six airbags.
