This full-size three-row SUV has everything you need to take your family on the road. A commanding exterior designs, bold styling, and lots of color choices make your Pilot stand out on the road. With tons of sophisticated tech and family-friendly features, your Pilot keeps everyone comfortable and safe on the road. Choose from five trims to take home the perfect configuration of your new family SUV!
The 2018 Honda Pilot has a lot to offer your family. This new 2018 model has more standard technology than ever, and the available Honda Sensing suite adds several driver assist features. It’s roomy and capable, with available all-wheel drive and hardy powertrain. It’s built for easy, confident driving and spacious, versatile utility.
This SUV is designed inside and out to give your family safety, comfort, and utility. If you’re often carting your kids around with all their stuff, be it sports equipment or camping gear on weekends, you’ll love the Pilot’s space and features. There are lots of safety features to help you keep an eye out, as well as comfort and entertainment features to keep all your passengers satisfied. With excellent gas milage as well, you’ll be happy to get comfortable for tournament weekends!
The 2018 Honda Pilot lets you bring the comforts of home with you on the road. It has lots of charging and integration features so that everyone’s device stays connected. You’ll find as many as five USB ports, two auxiliary jacks, and three 12-volt outlets in the Pilot. With the fantastic Rear Entertainment System, you also get a 115-volt outlet and an HDMI port for a gaming console! The Rear Entertainment System features a nine-inch screen with Blu-Ray Disc capability, so your passengers can watch movies or play games to while away hours spent in the car. In fact, they might just want to stay in the car: the Pilot also has three-zone automatic climate control and super comfy, supportive seating.
There’s more technology loaded into the Pilot beyond the passenger entertainment, too. The available Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System is top-notch, with 3D renderings of terrain, buildings, and road signs to help you out. It also has lane guidance and a live search function. You can also connect to your Pilot with HondaLink, which lets you activate remote engine start, remote locking functions, and more from your smartphone.
Every 2018 Honda Pilot also comes with a multi-angle rearview camera, which lets you view three different angles. You can see the normal, top-down, and wide view of what’s behind you as you reverse. The Pilot also offers a blind spot monitoring system to help you safety change lanes.
The 2018 Honda Pilot gets 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque from a 3.5L V6 engine. You can tow up to 3,500 pounds behind your Pilot, so it’s okay not to pack light! The standard six-speed automatic does a great job of providing excellent fuel economy while it propels you on your way. However, if you go with the Touring or Elite trim, you get Honda’s newer nine-speed automatic transmission. The nine-speed includes shift paddles, and does a great job keeping the engine at the perfect point in the power band. You’ll get quick, effortless shifts for a smooth ride whether you’re in traffic or on the open road.
The 2018 Honda Pilot also has a stiff chassis that lends itself to confident, crisp handling. Since its redesign two years ago, the Pilot rides with higher spring rates and firmer shock-absorber damping than the last generation. It’s also about 300 pounds lighter than its predecessor, which also boosts its performance capabilities. Like most Hondas, the Pilot has plenty of cabin insulation to isolate it from road and engine noise. If you’re counting on your passengers falling asleep on the journey, the Pilot’s excellent road manners will help.
You and your family will spend a lot of time in the 2018 Honda Pilot, so its cabin is designed for your comfort. The Pilot may be an SUV, but there’s luxury and thoughtful touches everywhere. The seats are comfortable and supportive for long journeys or commutes. You get to control the flow of the tri-zone climate control so that everyone stays warm or cool. With the available eight-inch Display Audio touchscreen and Rear Entertainment System, your next adventure becomes a high-tech luxury ride.
The Pilot’s cabin is versatile, as well. The one-touch second-row seats move forward automatically, so it’s easy to get into the third-row seats. You can opt for the maximum eight-person seating with the second-row bench seat, or go for two impressive captain’s chairs in the second row instead. There are lots of cupholders and charging ports placed throughout the cabin, so that no one is left with a low battery and no place for their drink. The Pilot also offers all-season floor mats to protect your floors from muddy cleats, wet paws, or whatever else your adventure drags in.
There’s also ample cargo space in the 2018 Honda Pilot. The second and third rows fold down for maximum cargo, but there’s also plenty of room for your gear without losing room for your passengers. With split-folding seats, too, you can configure your cargo space into the most convenient shape for whatever you need to carry.
The 2018 Honda Pilot aims to take your family safely from one adventure to the next. It returned excellent safety ratings from both the NHTSA*** and IIHS**** organizations. Not only does the IIHS give it top-rate “Good” markings in most categories, it’s also rated “Superior” with optional equipment for its front crash prevention. This option equipment is the available Honda Sensing system, which integrates active safety and driver assist systems. Honda Sensing is standard equipment starting on the Touring Trim.
With Honda Sensing, you get collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control, and a lane keeping assist system. In addition to Honda Sensing, the Pilot lineup has more standard and available safety features. Every 2018 Honda Pilot gets a multi-angle rearview camera to help you back up safely. Starting on the EX trim, you get Honda LaneWatch, which helps you change lanes and and check hard-to-see spots on the road. The Elite trim also gives you LED headlights with auto on/off function, so you won’t be caught in the dark with low visibility.
There are five available trims for the 2018 Honda Pilot. The LX starts off with lots of great features and the same 3.5L V6 engine as the Elite trim. You get 18-inch alloy wheels and a second-row bench for the maximum seating for eight. On the next level up, the EX trim gives you Honda LaneWatch and some extra conveniences like Remote Engine Start. You’ll love that feature during the winter months, when you can start your Honda Pilot before you get there! EX also comes with standard tri-zone climate control and the larger infotainment display.
For a higher touch of class, the EX-L trim features interior leather trim. It has the One-Touch second-row seats for ease of mobility, and you can add Honda Sensing and the Rear Entertainment Center to it. The Touring trim steps up performance with the nine-speed automatic transmission and 20-inch alloy wheels. You also get Honda’s satellite-linked navigation system and standard Honda Sensing. All of these trims come with standard front-wheel drive, but you can opt for all-wheel drive instead. Finally, the Elite trim comes with standard all-wheel drive, as well as a panoramic roof and LED headlights with auto on/off. You’ll get the blind spot information system and heated second-row captain’s chairs.
