Honda Pilot Performance & Power
The 2018 Honda Pilot comes equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 engine capable of delivering 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. The engine is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission, but the higher trims offer the option of a sporty 9-speed automatic transmission.
The engine also features variable cylinder management, which adjusts between using all 6 cylinders to just 3 to help improve fuel efficiency during normal driving. Direct fuel injection helps to boost efficiency as well by limiting the amount of fuel injected into the combustion chamber while providing only the fuel the engine needs.

Audio & Connectivity
The 2018 Pilot comes with a 5-inch display screen mounted into the dashboard to provide convenience and ease when making your media selection. You’ve got options from the AM/FM radio, the CD/MP3 player, and the portable media device that you can connect through the auxiliary input or USB port. The speed-sensitive volume control prevents your audio entertainment from being interrupted by loud engine sounds during peak performance.
When you upgrade your Honda Pilot, you get more options and updated features like the 8-inch high-resolution display. The SUV also features options like Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ for smartphone integration, which includes the SMS Text Message Function that delivers your incoming texts to the touchscreen display. These upgrades also include 3 months of SiriusXM®, Pandora® compatibility, and the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System with Voice Recognition and Honda HD Digital Traffic.
Honda Pilot Safety
This SUV comes with a variety of features to not only provide protection during a collision but also to help you avoid a collision altogether. Vehicle Stability Assist™ with Traction Control is a major help in slippery road conditions because it provides the right amount of brake pressure when a wheel starts slipping. This system can help the vehicle regain traction.
The Honda Pilot also features advanced front airbags. They can actually measure the force of the collision and inflate with the appropriate amount of pressure. The SUV also features side-impact airbags and side-curtain airbags to provide protection to the rest of the passengers.
