With its sleek styling, lots of interior space, and overall versatility, the 2017 HondaPilot is a great choice when it comes to selecting an amazing family vehicle. The Pilot has some rugged capabilities that include towing and off-road adventures. And, for daily driving, the Pilot will keep everything smooth and comfortable.
The Pilot is available in five trim levels: LX, EX, EX-L, Touring, and Elite. Most trims have seating for up to eight passengers, but second-row captain’s chairs are available, which reduces the capacity to seven.
Powering the Pilot is a 3.5-liter V-6 engine with 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. The three lower trims levels use a six-speed automatic transmission and the Touring and Elite trims are equipped with a nine-speed transmission.
With the available all-wheel drive system, the Pilot offers better-than-average off road abilities. In addition, when properly equipped, the Pilot can tow up to 5,000 pounds.
Standard features on the base LX trim include cruise control, air conditioning, a five-inch central display screen, a rearview camera, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, a USB port, and an auxiliary audio jack. Higher trim levels add features like automatic headlights, remote engine start, HondaLink smartphone features, Pandora internet radio, a sunroof, power liftgate, leather upholstery, navigation, a power and memory driver seat, and more.
Safety-wise, the Pilot is one of the best in its class. It earned a 2017 IIHS Top Safety Pick+ rating with top crash test scores, a “superior” rated front crash prevention system, and “acceptable” available headlights. Standard features include antilock brakes, traction and stability control, and airbags. Buyers can opt for the Honda Sensing package that adds forward collision mitigation with automatic braking, adaptive cruise control, a lane departure warning, intervention system, and more.
