I recently got a chance to drive the 2016 Honda Pilot at the press launch in Cincinnati and northern Kentucky, and when you parked the old, and new ones next to each other doesn’t take long to realize that a whole lot has changed. Besides the obvious styling overhaul its longer wider and the rear floor is lower. It’s free up more cabin space and not just more than the old Honda Pilot, had a Toyota Highlander, a Ford explorer, Nissan pathfinder and Chevy traverse. On hand at the present I got a chance to climb into the backs of all of them in other than perhaps the traverse. Pilot offered the most like you headroom for those stopped and. Is also compatible now Karbala even behind the third row where Honda is need to point out that you can store including sex cooler. Which is good because I counted 16 Cup holders in the cabin 16 so be prepared for lots of P breaks. Fun is also quite fond of the pilots push button third row access shared with the Acura MDX just push a button and the second roads slide forward.
It’s a great feature but the resulting pass through is still tight most competitors. I’m not. Elsewhere in the county there is a wealth of indie bands scene Tyrion’s are far better and the dash is normally more pleasing to look at but it seems lower and there’s a sense of openness that benefits visibility and helps make the pilot field smaller medics all but the base trim comes with a new touch screen interface it knowingly walks a volume knob and can be slow to respond to and. It also allows for swiping sliding motions like a smartphone and it has a new navigation system sourced from Garmin. And how does it drive well despite being just as big or bigger on the inside than most of its rivals since. Actually smaller on the outside in considerably lighter can weigh about 800 pounds less. And the traverse. You definitely feel that one driving the pilot just feels smaller and all the tribes. Lost weight also makes things easier on the new more powerful 280 horsepower, V6 engine that should deliver acceleration at least.
On par with the current segment track star the Toyota Highlander. There’s also a new 6 speed automatic transmission and on the top of lead and touring trims a 9 speed automatic that delivers better fuel economy by offering additional fuel saving ratios and in an obtrusive stop start system. It also weighs a whopping 66 pounds was in the 6 speed which is like taking a golden retriever out of the engine. The optional all wheel drive system is also somewhat like actors SHB WD system which songs power between the left. Right back wheels for better handling it. Really works but it also pairs of new terrain specific software for maximizing the pilots effectiveness in the snow 9 percent it’s sort of like the system to find emerging For a winter.

Finally there’s a wealth of new features available to keep comfortable entertained and safe in particular there’s a new package of active safety technologies optional on all but the most basic trim of. That will have to wait to get the 2016 pilot back to California to render a full for 1 of the rising dealers this July. To think of business NASA whimper and formerly impressive new pilot will be anything other than a class leader in the meantime let us know what you think and why not watch our Highlander review Q.
