The Honda Pilot is all new for 2016. With a sleeker look that's smoother, longer and narrower than the 2015 model, the previous Pilot generation's boxy silhouette is a thing of the past. The 2016 Pilot is much more car-like and aerodynamic, creating a smoother driving experience not unlike a family sedan.
Included in the 2016 Honda Pilot are a variety of features that modern car buyers have come to expect, such as air conditioning, power accessories and wheel-mounted audio controls. The Honda Pilot LX comes with Bluetooth connectivity, audio streaming and touchscreen audio controls. Meanwhile, the Pilot Elite adds navigation options and rear entertainment systems as well.
The 2016 Honda Pilot delivers a cooperative driving experience with top-class steering and extremely composed handling. The ride is smooth thanks to its independent suspension that dampens any bumps the 2016 Pilot may pass over. The vehicle has respectable fuel efficiency, enabling the Pilot to easily ferry families wherever they need to go.
Available trim levels for the 2016 Honda Pilot include: the Pilot LX, Pilot EX, Pilot EX-L, Pilot Touring and Pilot Elite.
The 2016 Honda Pilot is just as energetic as before, with acceleration that exceeds expectations for a crossover SUV. The 2016 Pilot comes with only one engine option: a 3.5L V6. Depending on the trim level, it either comes with a six-speed automatic transmission or a nine-speed automatic transmission. It comes with either front-wheel or all-wheel drive options.
The Honda Pilot was redesigned for the 2016 model year to have a more rounded shape. The 2016 Honda Pilot has a similar amount of cabin space as before, with a roomier third row. Now, the 2016 Pilot seats eight passengers a bit more comfortably than in previous iterations. Both the second and third row seats can be folded, providing much more cargo room as well. The cabin itself is logically organized and has many controls to make it easier to control entertainment and climate systems.
