2016 2018

At the 2015 Chicago Auto Show, Honda showed its biggest SUV: the Pilot.
It gave up all the previous design cues and adopted a new styling, which is more fluid, more like its smaller sibling the CR-V, the best sold SUV in the world at the time.

The new generation features more premium features, including optional and more efficient LED projector headlights with automatic high-beam technology. Also, it received LED daytime running lights and taillights. For a better look on the road, the Pilot has 20-inch wheels.

Since the Pilot is a high-demand car, the manufacturer used premium quality materials throughout the cabin and has added LED lights inside. The passengers can sit on three rows. The second row may be ordered as a three-seat bench or with two individual so-called “captain-seats” on the upper trim level, offering more comfort on the road.

On the dashboard, there is a new 8” capacitive touch-screen with navigation system and 3D-rendering of the map for easier recognition of the surrounding area. The Pilot’s Display Audio system enables simplified smartphone connectivity making for easier access to all the features and connectivity options of the HondaLink connected-car system. A 9-inch rear entertainment system with DVD and new Blu-Ray disc capability is available.

The only engine available is the new 3.5-liter, direct-injected i-VTEC V6 engine with Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) cylinder deactivation technology, which offers 250 hp. The standard transmission is a 6-speed automatic but there is also an option for a 9-speed automatic for the upper trims.

2009 2016

The second generation of the large SUV Honda Pilot was launched in 2009.
It was a major design step forward when compared to the previous generation, which looked more like an expanded CR-V.

The styling was important for the 2009 Pilot. The angled face from the 2002-2008 model was dropped and a flat, almost vertical, front fascia that looked more like a Honda Element design. The flat surface design was applied on the sides and on the rear liftgate.

For the interior, differences were depending on the trim level. On the top version, the navigation system, 8” infotainment LCD screen, and dual climate controls were installed. A big panoramic glass roof was available as well. A rearview camera was standard on the Pilot EX-L and Pilot Touring models. Inside, there was room for up to eight passengers, depending on the seat configuration.

It was made to tackle medium off-road tracks with the confidence of an 8” (205 mm) ground clearance and pull up to 4500 lbs (2040 kg) in the AWD version. For the powertrain, Honda insisted on offering only one engine and one gearbox. The only option was two or all-wheel-drive. The 5-speed automatic was standard and no manual choice was available. To improve the fuel-efficiency, the intelligent Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (i-VTEC®) valvetrain technology with Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) allowed the V-6 engine to operate in six-cylinder mode for power and four- and three-cylinder modes.
