Introduced in 2003 as a revolutionary product, the Honda Pilot has won over the hearts and minds of many for the last 15 years. Completely redesigned for 2016 with more space, efficiency and luxury than ever before, 2017 enters with just mild a few tweaks to improve on this already great vehicle.

Powered by a 3.5l direct injected V-TEC V6 engine pushing 280hp 262 lb-ft of torque you can choose either front or all wheel drive, more on that later. Depending on which trim level acquired a 6 or 9 speed automatic will be fitted to your Pilot helping improve fuel economy and capabilities.

The interior in one word can be described as spacious. High quality materials abound with excellent build quality ensuring years of trouble free family hauling. This is the case regardless of trim level, which can go from sensible to opulent. Stereos range from mild to wild, the roof can be mostly glass and the seats can be heated in up to two rows.

On the safety front Honda has you and your family covered - quite literally. With front, front side and full curtain airbags all the occupants are coddled no matter where they sit. That's assuming that the multitude of standard and available driver safety aids can't divert you from a sticky situation.

As for that AWD system. Honda put much work into research and development on this system to ensure that the Terrain Management System was more than just an electronic gimmick. With testing done in California, U.S.A, Moscow, Russia and Dubai, U.A.E. Honda wanted to ensure that if you engage Snow, Mud or Sand mode - it actually did what you were banking on, improving your control in those conditions.

All in all the Pilot really has it all together. With top class driving dynamics, plenty of room for up to 8 passengers and their cargo and legendary Honda quality all wrapped into one family friendly package there's no reason not to love the Pilot.

Grappone Honda is located in Bow, NH just south of Concord and only 20 minutes from Manchester. Conveniently located at the intersection of I89/I93 - come see why we are Driven to Amaze!

      Notice alert for any current or potential 2018 Honda Pilot EX-L customers:

      I bought a brand new 2018 Honda Pilot EX-L V6 model vehicle about a month ago. After a week of driving, I noticed a slight vibration coming from the lower driver seat area that ran into the bottom of the steering wheel. It's a slight faint vibration that happens intermittently. Some may feel it and others may not. Took it to two Honda service departments and one service advisor told me he has experienced a similar vibration on his Honda civic. At the other shop, the service manager couldn't even hear it or feel the vibration but when his master mechanic took it for a drive, he noticed the slight vibration and determined it was probably related to the VCM (I'm glad I wasn't losing my mind). No fix needed at this point. I'm still driving the vehicle and it's fully functional with no warning lights on the dash. I really like the vehicle so I guess I'll stick with it and see what happens in the future or if Honda provides some kind of an update.

      This video describes VCM very well -----> https://youtu.be/tIZP0024stE

      By the way, I contacted and filed a complaint with American Honda to which the Honda representative had no clue what I was describing? I don't understand when the issue is all over the internet and I believe there's a class action lawsuit pending if I'm not mistaken. Anyway, my case is still open with American Honda until further notice.


      I traded in my 2010 Honda Accord with 180K miles which by the way, I never had any issues with so hopefully this Honda Pilot will reach 100K?


      Please share your experience with any vibration on your 2015 and newer Honda vehicle,; I'd like to hear your experience.


      Thanks

      great review...question why does these newer hondas have this humming sound around 55-70 mph? is it what you described that the engine can go from 3-6 cylinders?

      Could be the aluminum hood buzzing / vibration flutter. Cause of flutter = 70 mph winds

      Drone Point of View In reply to Drone Point of View

      I just bought a brand new 2018 Honda Pilot and it gives off a humming/vibrating sound around the speeds I'd mentioned (no steering shakes of any kind). I've spoken to several people (one with a 2018 Civic), even one tech Honda person at the dealer and they all mentioned the buzzing sound within those speeds. I'm planning to call Honda American to inquire and also plan to take the vehicle to my local Honda service and drive with one of the mechanics. My vehicle had 9 miles and now 1500 and it makes the buzzing sound on and off. Never below 50-55 mph. Weird. If anybody else has heard this buzzing/humming sound, please share.

      Thanks

      Hmm, I'm not entirely sure to be completely honest. I drive a CR-V everyday on the highway to/from work and haven't noticed a humming noise. There is tire and road noise that makes it's way into the cabin, perhaps that's what you are hearing in the video? As for the cylinder deactivation, it is imperceptible. The only indication is an Eco light that will illuminate on some Honda models with that feature.

      Nice observation, the Pilot is available as a 7-passenger unit. On the Elite trim, the second row bench is replaced with heated captains chairs. All four other trim levels seat three across in both the second and third rows making them 8-passenger. Thanks for checking out our video!

      Why does the pilot require awd in order to tow more than 3500 lbs? What role does the awd play in the towing? The highlander will tow 5000 lbs with the fwd. Why the difference between these two?

      Allen Schneider In reply to Allen Schneider

      Thanks so much. I wondered if it had something to do with the gear ratio on the different models, but no one has confirmed this. Interestingly, honda sales team don't seem to know either! Unfortunately this requirement raises the cost on the towing option for honda. I think too that toyota exl and higher comes standard with larger radiator and transmission cooler. But, I like the space offered by the honda. What I want is pilot space, highlander tech, and pathfinder msrp.

      I must say, you have posed a good challenge here. I have read some of both Honda and Toyota's spec releases to try to find something to share, but have come up empty handed unfortunately. Honda only says that you can pull up to 5,000 lbs with the AWD Pilot when equipped with a transmission cooler. My only thought on this is that perhaps there is not an option to hook a trans. cooler up to the 2WD units, but that is complete speculation. If I run across anything more definitive I will share it here for everyone!

      Hey man, I have a question. Here in Canada, EXL has only 2 options: Navi and RES. Can't decide between the two. Would you recommend going with RES bcoz of DVD, Scree, and sunshades or is Navi really worth it? Is Carplay enough for Navigation? Let me know your opinion. Thanks

    • Grappone Automotive Group
      Grappone Automotive Group In reply to joe TheBet

      I'll start by saying this is straight personal opinion.

      I myself drive a CR-V with CarPlay/Android Auto which I opted for over the Honda Nav. as I prefer the up to date traffic/directions provided through Apple/Google over the built-in unit. It seems like you would get the best of both worlds by getting an EX-L RES and utilizing CarPlay. The one downside to using CarPlay/Android Auto vs. Honda Nav. - the Honda Nav. will work anywhere, the other systems are using your smartphone so if you are without signal, you are without directions. Just something to keep in mind.
