This car review is specific to this model, not the actual vehicle for sale.
The Honda Pilot is a practical, efficient, reliable, and powerful SUV. It's a crossover vehicle, so called because it's built on a car structure and drives more like a car than a truck, with crisp, predictable handling and a smooth ride. A 3.5-liter V6 motivates the Pilot with 244-horsepower and is paired with a five-speed automatic transmission. The power gets to the ground through either the front wheels or full-time four-wheel-drive system. Yet the Pilot delivers impressive fuel economy, particularly in two-wheel-drive form, thanks to a fuel-saving cylinder-deactivation system that disengages half the engine's cylinders when not needed. As a Honda, it promises quality, durability and reliability. Safety features that come on all Pilots include anti-lock brakes, three-row side-curtain airbags, traction control, and front-passenger frontal and side-impact airbags. The Honda Pilot carries over from 2007 with the addition of two trims: Value Package and Special Edition.
