Whether a new work vehicle or your new family car, the Pilot is powerful, spacious, and capable, loaded with some of the latest in technology and safety features. See how the specs and tech break down below and then visit a Detroit Area Honda Dealer to see your next Pilot in person.


The LX is the base 2017 Honda Pilot trim level, but there’s nothing basic about it. A 3.5L V6 engine, a long list of high-tech safety and connectivity features, spacious eight-passenger seating (with 152.9 cubic feet of cabin space), and available all-wheel drive set it apart from the average crossover. Priced at $30,595 (MSRP),* here’s what you can expect from the Pilot LX 2WD:


Honda Pilot driving down the road

Powertrain: The Pilot is powered by a 3.5L V6 with 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque, with technologies like Variable Cylinder Management that ensure you get the highest fuel efficiency possible: 2017 Pilot 2WD models earn an EPA-estimated 27 mpg on the highway.**

Honda Pilot Bluetooth Connectivity

Technology: Bluetooth HandsFreeLink keeps you connected while on the go, with a 200-watt seven-speaker stereo system ensuring your driving soundtrack comes through loud and clear whether streamed over Bluetooth or coming through the USB input. A 5-inch color LCD screen helps control it all.

The Pilot has the capabilities to get the job done, whether it’s for work or family.

The Touring trim represents all the big changes coming to the Pilot on the way to the top-of-the-line Elite model, with a new 9-speed automatic transmission, 20-inch alloy wheels, roof rails, and more.

If technology is a top priority, the Touring is the way to go (2WD models are priced at $41,670 MSRP*). Honda Sensing safety technologies are standard, and it includes all of the elegance of the EX-L model.


At the top of the lineup, the leader of the 2017 Honda Pilot trim levels, is the Elite. In addition to all of the Touring’s features, it includes standard all-wheel drive and the following upgrades:

Honda Pilot Panoramic Roof

Panoramic Roof: Enjoy the great outdoors with the panoramic design of the Pilot’s roof, giving the cabin an open feeling.

Honda Pilot Leather Ventilated Seating

Heated and Ventilated Seating: Front seats receive perforated upholstery and ventilation for keeping cool in the summer, and the second-row seats turn into captain’s chairs with heating elements for the cold weather.
