The 2016 Honda Pilot is available now at Avery Greene Honda in Vallejo, CA! Read on for an overview of the updates and innovations available for this year’s largest Honda SUV, the Pilot!
The 2015 Honda Pilot is already one of the most popular, best-selling vehicles—not just SUVs, mind you, but vehicles overall—on the American market, so that just makes the release of the 2016 Honda Pilot even more exciting. The new Pilot model is definitely ready to live up to the hype that it’s been given, as it’s been completely redesigned to make it an even better candidate among full-size SUVs.
First of all, the new Pilot comes with a redesigned exterior that is both an improvement in elegance and aesthetics over the previous model and also brings the model’s design closer to the rest of the Honda lineup. It doesn’t only look lighter and cleaner, though; it actually is. The Pilot has shed about 250 pounds, making it more efficient and giving it a much more graceful driving and handling experience as well.
The Pilot, powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine, gets 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. You can pair that engine with either a six-speed automatic transmission or a nine-speed automatic, depending on which trim you opt for. Speaking of trims, the new Pilot has five of them: the baseline LX model, then the EX, EX-L, Touring, and Elite trims on top of that. They each, of course, come with their own set of special upgrades and features.
The new Pilot gets very impressive fuel ratings for such a large SUV as well. The Pilot averages a combined 22 mpg and gets up to 27 mpg on the highway*—which is as almost as good as some sedans on the road today. All these factors combined make the Pilot an outstanding family SUV!
