Get Cabin Fever Inside the 2017 Honda Pilot
Inside the cabin of the 2017 Honda Pilot, you’ll notice convenient features like soft-touch materials, and a quiet ride, even on the noisiest highways. With seating for seven or eight occupants, you’ll be impressed by the amount of passenger space the Pilot boasts.
Second-row seaters can enjoy an impressive 38.4 inches of legroom, while third-row riders can sit comfortably with 31.9 inches, which is great for a three-row SUV. Plus, you’ll get 16.5 ftÂ³ of cargo space behind the third row, 46.8 ftÂ³ behind the second, and a whopping 83.9 ftÂ³ when you fold both rows.
In terms of technology, the Pilot offers great standard and available features. You’ll be able to listen to your favorite songs via standard Bluetooth® accessibility and a USB port; upgrade to the EX trim, and you can utilize an 8-inch touchscreen with available Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™.
Pilot Power & Performance
The 2017 Honda Pilot has an awesome standard engine that will power you from soccer games to vacations or just to the grocery store. Enjoy a 3.5L V6 engine that produces 280 horsepower in the base model-not to mention, it also has great acceleration.
With such power, you might think the Pilot must be lacking in fuel economy. Luckily, that’s not the case here. With an EPA-estimated 20/27 MPG city/highway, you’ll be powered from one destination to the next without having to make extra stops to refuel.1
On those longer drives, feel free to hitch up a thing or two on the back of the Pilot. With a towing capacity of up to 5,000 pounds, you’ll be quick to bring along the jet ski or camper on your next family vacation.
