2018 Honda Pilot Review
For drivers in Palm Beach, Greenacres, and Wellington looking for a reliable family vehicle, the Honda Pilot is a top-notch choice, having almost as much room inside as a minivan, but better performance statistics. Its interior is comfortable and packed with features, so much so that you might even think you’re driving a luxury car.
Discover the features, options packages, performance specs and more that you can expect from the new 2018 Honda Pilot, and where to go for a test drive. Feel free to reach out to us at Braman Honda of Palm Beach with any questions you may have.
Honda Pilot Performance
The 2018 Honda Pilot is driven by a powerful 3.5-liter V6 engine delivering 280 horsepower with 262 pound-feet torque, matched up with a six-speed automatic transmission. There aren’t any engine upgrades available, but the V6 provides all the power you’ll need. It’s available in front-wheel or all-wheel drive and in five different trim levels.
At the base level, the 2018 Pilot LX makes perfect sense as a family hauler. It gives you a sound system with 5-inch central display, seven speakers, Bluetooth for both audio and phone, auxiliary port, USB port, and rearview camera. It also comes with air conditioning, cruise control, and split-fold back seat for greater cargo capacity.
From there, you can step it up to add a whole range of convenience, infotainment, driver and safety aids, including LED running lights, remote start, LaneWatch blind spot camera, automatic climate control, power seats, traction management systems, full smartphone app integration, Blu-Ray back seat entertainment system, 8-inch infotainment system touchscreen interface, satellite and HD radio.
Also available are heated seats, GPS navigation, 115-volt power outlet, auto-dim mirrors, lane departure warning, lane keeping, cross-traffic alerts with blind spot monitoring, collision mitigation, adaptive cruise control and more.
Cargo Space & Towing Capacity
The 2018 Honda Pilot is a surprisingly versatile vehicle considering it’s a mid-sized SUV and naturally won’t have the towing or hauling capacity of a full-size or pickup truck. There’s tons of room for small item storage and is among the best in class for cargo space. Behind the back seats you’ll enjoy 16.5 cubic feet of storage, which increases to a whopping 83.9 cubic feet with the seats folded down. There’s plenty of room for extra passengers and any baggage they may bring along.
The Honda Pilot can tow up to 5,000 pounds, properly equipped, which keeps it right in line with the best among the class. This small vehicle is packed with a whole lot of power and should not be underestimated.
