2018 Pilot: Performance

However, in an SUV, you know as well as we do that your journey could take you just about anywhere. In the Honda Pilot, you’ll get there, regardless of whether you’re cruising down a strip of highway, traversing a bumpy trail, or navigating windy roads.

Under the hood, you’ll find a standard 3.5L V6 engine paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission, which can deliver an impressive 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. Despite its incredible power output, it maintains fuel efficiency thanks to the Eco Assist™ System.
