After a complete redo last year, the 2017 Honda Pilot SUV sees only minor changes. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are made standard on EX trims and higher, while the black interior option is now offered on all trims wearing White Diamond Pearl paint.
The only thing that remains the same on the 2016 Honda Pilot is the name. Otherwise, virtually everything else is new, from style, to interior and features, to engine and transmission.
About Honda Pilot
Honda’s venerable Pilot SUV for 2017 provides 3-row convenience in a vehicle noted for its reliability and strong resale. This 3rd-generation Pilot is slightly smaller than the last, but the design is sleeker and more upscale. The Pilot sacrifices some interior room to the design, making it smaller inside than the aging Chevrolet Traverse, but still slightly larger than the current Ford Explorer. The 2017 Pilot is also up to speed on the latest safety features, offering driver-assist systems like adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist and crash-detection and mitigation. On the road, the Pilot is every bit the equal of the Toyota Highlander and Nissan Pathfinder, although it can’t match the off-road prowess of a Ford Explorer or Land Rover Discovery.
