2016 Honda Pilot Buyer's Guide

The 2016 Honda Pilot is a brand-new entry for the three-row, midsize crossover segment, and it’s clear right from the start that Honda expects a significant gain in sales altitude with this generation. Indeed, its bigger, bolder design—with available LED headlights—give it a rugged style that’s a much better fit with customer expectations. Additionally, the 2016 edition welcomes a major influx of technologies, including a new powertrain, the full “Honda Sensing” suite of advanced safety measures, and enhanced connectivity features that are powered by a new, Android-based operating system. Honda engineers then capped off the Pilot’s package of benefits by up-sizing the vehicle itself by some 3.5 inches in length. The result is even more cargo versatility to go with seating for up to eight.

What makes it move?

The powerplant for the 2016 Honda Pilot is a high-tech 3.5-liter V6 that produces 280 hp and 262 lb.-ft. of torque, for increases of 30 of the former and 9 of the latter (versus the previous Pilot). The standard gearbox is a six-speed automatic that further helps raise EPA ratings to 19 mpg city/27 mpg highway/22 mpg combined, while a sophisticated nine-speed setup, enhanced by start/stop technology, is available to push fuel efficiency to 20/27/23.

Why buy the 2016 Honda Pilot?

Now bigger and better exactly where it matters most, the 2016 Honda Pilot was designed to meet crossover-customer needs in all the key areas, but the brand puts a particular emphasis on passenger protection. For example, that comprehensive portfolio of safety measures mentioned above includes two that are new to Honda—road-departure mitigation and a rear cross-traffic monitor—as well as a multi-view camera system that becomes standard on all Pilot models. The Pilot also excels from a capabilities standpoint, touting a maximum tow rating of up to 5,000 lbs., a new all-wheel-drive system with intelligent variable-torque management, a multi-mode drive selector with four settings for AWD and two for FWD, and a “one-touch” second row for easy access to the rear-most seating.
