Meet the all-new 2018 Honda Pilot in Terrebonne, Quebec

The latest generation of the Honda Pilot makes a bold statement. Classy new looks promises big changes, and the Pilot delivers. Fun technologies and serious ones join together to make this the most advanced Pilot ever.

Outside, the Pilot is both refined and bold. Drivers will appreciate important features such as heated side mirrors and a windshield wiper de-icer. 

You can get the Pilot in the LX base edition or step up to the EX, EX-L Navi or EX-L Res. If you go for luxury with the upscale Touring model, you can get the practical panoramic moonroof to provide extra sunlight to all three rows. This is also the first year that Honda has offered auto-levelling headlights.

Taking Control of the Drive in the 2018 Honda Pilot in Terrebonne, Quebec

The Earth Dreams 3,5L V6 engine produces 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. With ample performance to make a family driver happy, there’s also an emphasis on fuel economy. Cylinder management reduces fuel use on the highway. The available idle stop can reduce it in city settings.

For better all-wheel drive, the Honda system uses Intelligent Variable Torque Management. It knows when it’s needed and when it’s not. Letting you rise above the snow, ground clearance is 185 mm.

Honda Sensing technologies provide the crash avoidance systems that may prevent frontal and side accidents. When leader traffic slows or a pedestrian steps into the SUV’s path, an automatic emergency brake follows a warning system. Likewise, a lane departure system and a road departure system work together to ensure that the SUV stays out of harm’s way.

Keeping the Family Together inside the 2018 Honda Pilot in Terrebonne, Quebec

The new cabin is bigger than ever, and that means more room for everyone, even the back row passengers. The cabin is well-organised with careful use of interior space. A centre console stows your tablet. The 524L-cargo hold can grow to more than 1500 L with the split-fold third row. It can surpass 3,000 L if the second row is folded, too.

High quality materials provide a well-appointed cabin across the line-up. You’ll find plenty of USB ports, a driver’s display, and a touchscreen. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are on board, providing numerous apps you can’t get any other way. As you climb the trim ladder, you can pick up heated seats on both rows, a heated steering wheel, and tri-zone automatic climate controls. Leather upholstery dresses the seats. A rear entertainment centre can play family movies for the kids. 

You'll see the value for yourself when you visit 40/640 Honda for a test drive of the 2018 Honda Pilot.
