2017 Honda Pilot: the SUV for the whole family

Comfort and refinement at the heart of the new 2017 Honda Pilot in Amherst

Available starting at $ 40,090, the 2017 Honda Pilot is definitely the most luxurious vehicle in the Honda range, but more importantly, it offers you tremendous value! On the road, it offers a comfortable and silent drive while still offering enough power to tackle any situation. Behind the wheel of the 2017 Honda Pilot, you will always feel confident.

Under the hood, you get a 3.5-liter V6 engine that develops 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. It is the same engine that powered the previous-generation Pilot, but this version is much more powerful, no question about it. In contrast, fuel consumption remains reasonable for a midsize SUV. Part of that is explained by the fact that the Pilot can be equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission in most versions while a very advanced nine-speed automatic gearbox is offered in the high-end Touring model.

Add to this the ECON system that adjusts the parameters of different mechanical components in order to optimize fuel-efficiency, and you get an average fuel consumption rating of less than 10.0 liters per 100 kilometers on the highway.
