A new generation of the Honda Pilot debuts in 2023 with a refreshed design that aligns with Honda’s other models.
With the new Pilot, Honda has created one of the best options in this market. There's plenty of room for passengers and luggage, multiple seating configurations are available, and the engine is powerful. And for the adventurous family, there's the TrailSport model.
Trim levels for 2023 include:
The front seats appeared well-shaped and supportive, suggesting they would be pleasant to sit in for an extended period.
Honda’s vehicles have the most spacious cabins in their respective classes. It is sufficiently roomy for the three rows. Second-row passengers now have access to 40.8 inches of legroom.
The third row is also more spacious and comfortable, with a total passenger capacity of eight. The second row's middle seat is removable in the Touring and Elite trims, a nice touch that facilitates access to the third row.
Regarding storage, the new Pilot is a vast improvement. The space behind the third row is 22.4 feet, expanding to 113.7 feet behind the front seats.
The Elite model has high-end features and components, such as perforated leather upholstery and advanced electronics.
Honda has been active recently, releasing new generations of the HR-V, Civic, CR-V, and Accord. The new Honda Pilot is following suit. Each has a unique appearance and is thoroughly up-to-date.
The Pilot's upright grille, massive clamshell hood, and fender flares make this clear. The TrailSport is also available in a unique shade of blue called "Diffused Sky Blue Pearl."
The new Pilot is 3.4 inches longer than the previous model, added to the vehicle's wheelbase. The result is a roomier interior and a smoother ride.
2023 exterior colors include:
The 2023 Pilot SUV is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine that is naturally aspirated. Power is 285 horsepower, and torque is 262 pound-feet. This V6 engine matches Honda's reputation for producing fine and powerful motors. Several competitors, however, have more available.
The base 2023 Honda Pilot comes with front-wheel drive (FWD) and an optional all-wheel drive (AWD) system. The new 10-speed automatic transmission replaces the previous nine-speed unit.
This vehicle has a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds, making it suitable for towing a trailer with a few dirt bikes or an all-terrain vehicle.
