The 2018 Pilot engine is powerful and robust. Need we say more? Well actually, we’ve added some brains to our muscle.
Every Pilot comes with a 280-hp* 3.5-litre, 24-valve, Direct Injection, SOHC, i-VTEC® V6 engine with 262 lb.-ft. of torque*. And to help every litre go further, the Variable Cylinder Management® (VCM®) system is designed to automatically switch between 6 and 3 cylinders, depending on the driving conditions.
The 6-speed and available 9-speed automatic transmissions optimize performance with Grade Logic Control technology to improve hill climbing or descending. And the available steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters add a dose of fun to the 9-speed automatic transmission with available electronic gear selector.
For a smoother ride, the Pilot’s intelligent Variable Torque Management (i-VTM4™) AWD system is designed to increase responsiveness and handling, so you take to the road with greater confidence.
On snow, mud or sand, the Intelligent Traction Management system allows the driver to select the operating mode that best suits the driving conditions by simply pushing a button.
The 3.5-litre, i-VTEC® V6 engine’s available idle-stop can shut the engine off when stopped and restarts when the brake pedal is released to help improve fuel efficiency. With fuel economy ratings as low as 12.4/9.3/11.0 (L/100km) City/Hwy/Combined* the Pilot is designed with efficiency in mind.
With its available towing capacity of 1,588kg or 2,268kg*, the Pilot is ready for those adventures that need a little extra for the road.
* Accessory towing package required. Packages are available at an additional cost as a dealer-installed item. See your Owner’s Manual for proper towing operation.
