The full-size three-row 2018 Honda Pilot SUV sits above the two-row CR-V and entry-level HR-V, and alongside the three-row Odyssey minivan in the automaker’s people-carrying lineup. The Pilot also shares some of its chassis bits with the Ridgeline pickup.
The third-generation 2018 Honda Pilot was introduced for the 2016 model year. With Honda generally updating its models in its fourth model year, we expect the full-size SUV to carryover with only mild revisions for the 2018 model year. We’ll update this space as soon as we have more info.
Power for the 2017 Pilot comes from an updated 3.5-liter i-VTEC V-6 making 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. The engine features variable cylinder management and optional auto start/stop tech. A six-speed automatic backs the engine in most models, while the Touring and Elite models feature a nine-speed automatic.
Honda introduced its available Honda Sensing suite of active safety tech for the third-gen Pilot in 2016. The package of tech includes adaptive cruise control, lane departure mitigation system, collision mitigation braking system, forward collision warning, road departure warning, and a tire pressure monitoring system.
Well, considering all the previous versions, the new Pilot will probably become available at the end of 2018, and most probably in September. If we take into consideration that current model cost $30,595 and the two-row CR-V starts at $24,045, we can assume that this new 2018 Honda Pilot should be somewhere between those two prices.
