Boston residents will soon be able to drive the all-new 2016 Honda Pilot, which is joining the recently redesigned CR-V and all-new HR-V as part of Honda’s class-leading SUV lineup. The 2016 Pilot marks the third generation of the popular SUV, which launched in 2003. Since then, over 1.4 million Pilots have been sold in America.
The 2016 Pilot continues Honda’s successful formula of combining three-row practicality, bold SUV styling, excellent safety tech, exceptional fuel economy and dynamic handling. It’s no surprise that the Pilot has the highest brand loyalty of any Honda model, with 63 percent of Pilot buyers returning to purchase another Honda vehicle.
For 2016 the Honda Pilot is receiving more premium features and amenities than ever before. A new range-topping Elite version will offer Honda’s first ever 20-inch wheels and tires, ventilated front seats, heated second row seats, a panoramic glass roof and many other luxury features. More interior room for both the driver and passengers will make every journey more enjoyable.
Another addition to the extensive list of upgrades to the Pilot is a new engine – an EarthDreams Technology 3.5-liter direct-injected i-VTEC V6 engine, which includes Variable Cylinder Management for improved fuel economy. The available intelligent variable torque management AWD system, a 300 pound reduction in weight and improved aerodynamics also contribute to the better fuel economy ratings compared to last year’s model.
The 2016 Honda Pilot is also top of the class when it comes to safety performance. The Pilot has the most full-featured suite of Honda Sensing advanced safety technology ever offered on a Honda vehicle. Honda is targeting the highest possible U.S. safety ratings with its ACE body structure, redesigned ultra-high strength steel door rings and collision avoidance technologies.
