Utility Features of the 2018 Honda Pilot

Finding a sport utility vehicle that has it all doesn’t have to feel like a chore! The 2018 Honda Pilot’s utility consists in its powerful, dependable drivetrain, its available All-Wheel Drive, and its supremely accommodating cargo storage capabilities, and we’re not the only ones who think so! According to Edmunds, this year’s Pilot offers “as much interior room as a minivan,” and in their view, it’s also been “built tough enough for some light off-roading”! Drivers in Wisconsin who take the time to experience the utility of the Honda Pilot are sure to love how they feel behind the wheel.

Power and Capabilities of the Honda Pilot

Horsepower Torque Ground Clearance (Unladen)
2018 Honda Pilot 280 hp at 6000 RPM 262 lb.-ft. at 4700 RPM 7.3 inches

The vehicles in Honda’s All-Wheel Drive lineup have been built to please, and this model is certainly no exception. The Honda Pilot’s AWD and drivetrain components make it the ultimate adventuring companion.

  • Drivetrain Components and Specifications: Every Pilot has been equipped with a 3.5-Liter V6 aluminum alloy engine, a 24-Valve SOHC i-VTEC Valve Train, and features like Variable Cylinder Management (VCM), an Active Control Engine Mount System (ACM), and a Drive-by-Wire Throttle System. Buyers who upgrade to the Pilot’s Touring or Elite trim levels will receive a 9-Speed Automatic Transmission designed with Shift-By-Wire technology and accompanying paddle shifters.
  • All-Wheel Drive: The Intelligent Variable Torque Management (i-VTM4) All-Wheel Drive system stabilizes the Pilot by shifting torque and power to the wheels with the greatest amount of traction—before you ever begin to experience slippage. Without AWD, the Pilot’s Intelligent Traction Management works in snow alone; with the upgrade, it also functions in the sand and mud. I-VTM4 is available on the LX and up, and even comes standard on Touring models.
  • Depart from the Beaten Path: Unit-Body Construction, MacPherson Strut Front Suspension, and Multi-Link Rear Suspension allow a smoother, more controlled ride on any sort of terrain. The Honda Pilot’s ground clearance is 7.3 inches when you’re traveling with an empty cargo bay. LX, EX, and EX-L models sport 18-Inch Alloy wheels, while Touring and Elite models come equipped with 20-inch alloy wheels instead. Each offers standard All-Season tires.

When you put this one-of-a-kind SUV to work for you, you’ll be able to tackle just about any challenge.

  • Interior Storage Space: Your friends and family members will be able to spread out inside the Pilot’s cabin, which offers 153.1 cu. ft. of passenger space in its Elite trim. What’s more, the inclusion of a 60/40 Split Flat Folding Third-Row Seat and removable second row seats means that the Pilot can instantly respond to your cargo storage needs: the Honda Pilot’s cargo space can expand from 18.5 cu. ft. to 109 cu. ft. at a moment’s notice. A Rear Storage Well, Cargo Area Tie-Down Anchors, and Cargo Area Lights come standard.
  • Towing Capacity: A heavy-duty sport utility vehicle needs to be able to haul heavy cargo, and the Honda Pilot’s tow rating clearly demonstrates its impressive capabilities. Even with 2WD, the Pilot can tow up to 3500 lbs., and those who upgrade with i-VTM4 will increase their maximum capacity to a remarkable 5000 lbs. Front and Rear Stabilizer Bars come standard in every trim, and an easy-to-use Trailer Hitch is available as an accessory.
  • Exterior Features: Drivers who upgrade to the Honda Pilot’s EX-L trim will be able to take advantage of a Power Tailgate, and the Hands-Free Access feature has been included on both the Touring and Elite trims. Roof Rails, Cross Bars, a Ski Attachment, a Snowboard Attachment, and many more accessories are available upon request.
