2016 Honda Pilot Details

The 2016 Honda Pilot comes in five trim levels: LX, EX, EX-L, Touring, and Elite. Under the hood, the Honda Pilot offers Berea, KY drivers a 3.5-liter 24-valve SOHC V-6 engine with either a six-speed automatic transmission (LX, EX, and EX-L trims) or a nine-speed automatic transmission (Touring and Elite only). The minivan’s V-6 EarthDreams® engine is able to produce 280 horsepower* and 262 lb.-ft. of torque, providing a powerful ride with plenty of handling. The Honda Odyssey also features the Eco Assist™ System and Variable Cylinder Management™ (VCM®) that increases fuel economy, Active Noise Cancellation™ (ANC), hill start assist, and an Active Control Engine Mount system (ACM) standard on all trim levels.

Inside the cabin, the 2016 Honda Pilot is spacious and comfortable, with seating for up to eight passengers on all trim levels but the Elite, which seats seven. Combined with up to 109 cu.-ft. of cargo volume, this means that you are able to seat eight people with ease and still have enough storage capacity to fit an 82 qt. cooler in rear storage. This is thanks in part to the 60/40 split 2nd and 3rd row fold-down seats that are able to accommodate a variety of different configurations and cargo loads. The SUV also has a wealth of technology that makes driving and entertaining a breeze, including Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink®, speed-sensitive volume control (SVC), a 4.2-inch color LCD information screen, Pandora® internet radio compatibility, and HondaLink®, which connects your smartphone to the vehicle. If you want to keep rear passengers entertained, the EX-L trim level and above have a rear entertainment system with a Blu-Ray™ player available!
