While the new Honda Pilot for the upcoming model year isn’t entering a new generation or getting a redesign, customers will be happy to know from the brand’s recently shared 2017 Honda Pilot information that the SUV is getting quite a few upgrades and improvements. From expanding its powertrain options to getting new safety and tech features, the 2017 Honda Pilot has a lot of new things to offer that it didn’t last year, so make sure to check it out.
The 2017 Pilot already had an engine in its lineup that delivered 280 horsepower: the 3.5-liter direct injection i-VTEC. Now, however, buyers have another option in a 220-horsepower 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle inline-4 engine. Both engines can be paired with either the standard six-speed or an available nine-speed automatic. Additionally, the new Honda Pilot also gets several new driver assist features such as lane keep assist and adaptive cruise control, plus compatibility with smartphone systems like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The release of 2017 Pilot information came ahead of its release. It’s available now at dealerships across the country at a price of $30,595 for the base LX trim. Other options, such as all-wheel drive and more equipped models, add more to the cost as you move up.
