Alternative to Minivan For People Wanting Performance

With a 280-horsepower V-6 engine, the 2016 Honda Pilot outperforms every other three-row SUV in its class. When paired with the nine-speed transmission, “Motor Trend” editors coaxed an impressive 6.5-second time from 0 to 60 miles per hour, plenty fast enough for late soccer moms who need to get kids and equipment to the game. With expansive windows, the Pilot also provides plenty of visibility. A hidden storage area behind the back seat is a good place to stash emergency equipment, or hide Christmas presents from nosey kids. Check out the redesigned Pilot by taking a trip to Chapman Honda.

Automatic Seats Make Rear Access Easy

One of the coolest features of the new Pilot is the push-button second row seat. Just point your finger and click, then watch the seat fold and inch forward, creating a clear path for those delegated to the third row. While the third row of an SUV is usually reserved for those on the lowest rung of the family totem pole, the Pilot’s third seat has large air conditioning vents, big windows and high quality trim. Choose the Elite model and a panoramic sunroof covers the third row, allowing occupants to find figures in the clouds.

All-wheel Drive Provides Maximum Traction

Choose a Honda Pilot with an all-wheel drive system and you can change modes between normal, sand, mud and snow. The system automatically provides power to the wheels that need it the most, reducing spin and helping you maintain control. Active safety features include adaptive cruise control, lane departure mitigation and anti-collision braking. All helped the Pilot to earn a Top Safety Pick + rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The Pilot is the only three-row SUV to earn such a rating.

Choose From Five Trim Levels

The all-new Honda Pilot comes in five different trim packages. The base LX starts at under $30,000 and comes with an automatic transmission, push button start, 4.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a USB audio interface. Step up to the EX and you get LED running lights, a 10-way power driver seat, larger audio display and traction control. The EX-L adds leather, heated front seats and a power tailgate, while the Touring model includes navigation, a rear DVD entertainment system and a superior sound system. The Elite is the top trim level that comes with heated second row captain chairs, panoramic roof and other luxury features. Compare all the models and pick the one that’s right for you with a visit to Chapman Honda.
