The all-new 2023 Honda Pilot, the largest and most powerful SUV in Honda history, went on-sale Dec. 12, 2022.
Offering a class-leading combination of off-road capability and nimble on-road dynamics, the fourth-generation Pilot is the ultimate family SUV with rugged new styling, and more passenger and cargo space.
Pilot’s five well-equipped trim levels include the new Pilot TrailSport, the most rugged and off-road capable Honda SUV ever, with special off-road features engineered to get weekend adventurers even further off the beaten path.
Pilot’s Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) begins with the Pilot Sport at $39,1501 (excluding $1,295 destination charge).
Every 2023 Pilot benefits from extensive improvements to the body, chassis and powertrain, safety technology, and overall driving refinement. A sportier and more engaging driving experience was created through an all-new chassis and Pilot’s stiffest body structure ever.
The extremely rigid platform was engineered with TrailSport’s true off-road capabilities in mind from the beginning, which also benefits the ride, handling and overall refinement of the entire Pilot lineup.
Pilot also introduces the second generation of Honda‘s award-winning torque vectoring i-VTM4™ all-wheel drive system, which is available on all grades and standard on TrailSport and Elite.
The new and more capable i-VTM4 system features a stronger rear differential that can handle 40% more torque and provides 30% faster response, optimizing traction in all driving scenarios, especially slick conditions and off-road.
Five standard selectable drive modes optimize the driving experience for various conditions: Normal, Econ, Snow, plus new Sport and Tow modes. EX-L models and above (with all-wheel drive) also feature a Sand mode and a new Trail mode which optimize Pilot’s off-road capabilities.
In addition, all 2023 Pilots come standard with an expanded Honda Sensing® suite of driver-assistive technologies that includes Traffic Jam Assist (TJA) and Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR).
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow and Lane Keeping Assist (LKAS) have been updated to feature more natural responses. A rear seat reminder and rear seatbelt reminder are also new and standard across the lineup.
