2016 Honda Pilot Engine, Safety and Feature Specs
We got our first look at the 2016 Honda Pilot some time ago now, but the exact information on the engine and many of the features were unavailable to us until now. We now know much more about the three row SUV and what is has to offer. So if you want to see the 2016 Honda Pilot engine, safety and feature specs get in here.
The most important piece of information is what the new engine has to offer. The 3.5L V6 with EarthDreams technology offers significantly improved performance with an increase of 30 horsepower and 9 lb-ft. of torque, meaning the engine now produces a total of 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft. of torque. The engine can be paired with either a 6-speed or 9-speed engine.
To add to the overall capability of the Pilot, the SUV has moved overall to an all-wheel-drive system with a selectable traction management system that offers snow, mud and sand modes. The front-wheel-drive system will also offer a snow mode.
A number of safety features have also been added to the Pilot. The driver assist systems now include collision mitigation, forward collision warning, road departure mitigation, lane keep assist, lane departure warning and adaptive cruise control. The full-size SUV still offers a rearview camera, brake assist and plenty of airbags.
The base model of the Pilot will come with Bluetooth, a 7-speaker audio system, tire pressure monitoring, hill start assist and some of the above mentioned safety features. As you move up in trims you’ll find features like fog lights, Honda LaneWatch, daytime running lights, smart entry, a rear entertainment system, leather trim, heated seats and improvements to the entertainment system.
The Pilot will come in four different colors and five different trim levels. Each trim offers plenty of great features and options for drivers to choose from.
