What We Think about 2017 Honda Pilot
The upgraded Pilot eliminated the blocky style for the 2016 design year, making the outside styling more appealing. While the Pilot might look more like a crossover and less like a Suburban, the interior is similar to a minivan, with one-touch second-row seats and freight location below the rear load flooring. The nine-speed automated transmission on the Touring and Elite designs might be tuned much better, with sluggish shifts in and out of equipment.
The Honda Pilot is among the quickest three-row crossovers on the marketplace, striking 0-60 miles per hour in a Motor-Trend-tested 6.5 seconds.
