2018 Honda Pilot in Wilson, NC

The largest SUV in the Honda lineup, the Pilot certainly has some big shoes to fill. However, it’s plush interior, third-row seating, and endless features make it one of the most acclaimed full-size SUVs on the market. Here’s a look at all it has to offer in 2018.

Trim Levels

The 2018 model offers the same range of trims it boasted the previous year: the LX, EX, EX-L, Touring, and Elite. The LX starts with offerings such as 18-inch alloy wheels, automatic multi-reflector halogen headlights, LED brake lights, power side mirrors, and tinted rear windows. The EX tosses in even more excellent features with smart entry, heated power mirrors, and fog lights, while the EX-L provides acoustic glass, a power tailgate, and a one-touch power moonroof with tilt feature.

If you want to hop into luxury, go with either the Touring or the Elite. The Touring model comes with 20-inch alloy wheels, body-colored parking sensors to squeeze into tight spaces, roof rails, and heated side mirrors with integrated turn signals. WIth the Elite, you’ll get the fully loaded version of the Odyssey, complete with automatic LED headlights, a panoramic roof ideal for stargazing, and rain-sensing wipers.


The 2018 Honda Pilot comes with a ton of power, using the very same engine you’ll find in their Odyssey minivan and Ridgeline pickup truck. Beneath the hood, the Pilot comes equipped with a brawny, 3.5-liter V6. Good for 280 horsepower and up to 262 pound-feet of torque, this engine will get up and go when you need it.

The engine pairs with either a six-speed automatic transmission on the lower trim levels or a nine-speed automatic transmission on the Touring and Elite. Depending on your needs, the Pilot comes with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.


Despite its size, the Pilot saves money at the gas pump with a six-speed transmission.


If you need a ton of extra space for people or cargo, you’ll love the spaciousness of the 2018 Honda Pilot. With third-row seating, the Pilot can accommodate up to seven passengers, making it one of only a few SUVs with such capacity. When you need some room for groceries or a home improvement project, the Pilot sports 16.5 cubic feet behind the rear seat, or fold down the rear seats to reveal a whopping 83.9 cubic feet.

Safety Features

The 2018 Pilot has yet to undergo a crash test, but it still has the same features from last year that garnered a five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. With the LX model, you’ll get basic active and passive safety features, although the upper trims add a nice package of driver-assist technology. Some of these safety specs include lane keeping assist, Honda LaneWatch, adaptive cruise control, and more.

*The 2018 Honda Pilot has earned top ratings with a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Government 5-Star Safety Ratings are part of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s New Car Assessment Program (www.safercar.gov). Model tested with standard side airbags (SAB).
