2018 Honda Pilot Specs
Your family has a lot to do around Gulfport, Long Beach, and Biloxi. You want a reliable ride that can get the kids to sports practice or pull vacation duty, and the 2018 Honda Pilot may just be that vehicle. This midsize SUV is known for its smooth ride, vast cargo capacity, and roomy third-row seat.
At Pat Peck Honda, we want to give shoppers like you a closer look at the 2018 Honda Pilot specs, so you have the facts and figures you need to make your choice. If you have any questions as you read, feel free to reach out to us!
Honda Pilot Specifications: Interior
The first thing you’ll want to know about the 2018 Pilot is just how practical all that interior space is. With seating for up to eight people across three rows (seven in the top-tier Elite trim), you’ll have all the space you need to fit your family and relatives.
And you won’t have to worry about relegating the rear cabin to the kids. Second-row legroom comes to a spacious 38.4 inches, which is more than enough to accommodate the average-sized adult. Even the third row, with nearly 32 inches of legroom, can squeeze adults in a pinch-though for long rides, kids will likely find it most comfortable.
And cargo room? You’ll find plenty of it, including:
- 16.5 cubic feet behind the third row, perfect for groceries, coolers, and picnic lunches.
- 46.8 cubic feet behind the second row, ideal for large strollers or camping gear.
- 83.9 cubic feet behind the first row, perfect for moving bikes, furniture, and more!
Midsize SUV Performance Specs
Every Honda Pilot runs on a 3.5-liter V6, paired with either a 6-speed automatic transmission on the low-level trims or a 9-speed automatic on the Touring and Elite trims. Whichever powertrain you choose, you’ll see up to 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque-perfect for keeping up on the highway.
The Pilot comes standard with front-wheel drive (FWD), but all-wheel drive (AWD) is available to give you more balanced grip on wet or gravelly roads. You’ll get the best fuel mileage for your next road trip in the Touring trim with FWD. It gives an EPA-estimated 20 city and 27 highway MPG, helping you save on fuel.1
Impressive Towing Specifications
If you’re looking for a midsize SUV that can handle towing duty, the 2018 Pilot is up to the task. The FWD version can tow up to 3,500 pounds, which is ideal if you need to tow a couple jet skis or a small boat out to open water.
Meanwhile, the AWD Pilot can handle up to 5,000 pounds. That’s enough capacity to tow a midsize boat or a small hard-side towable RV. A weekend at Baywood Campground or a trip out to the Gulf Coast is no longer out of the question!
