Features and Spec Upgrades of the 2016 Honda Pilot

Honda Pilot

The 2016 Honda Pilot is a full-sized SUV that does not get the recognition that it deserves as most people are still hung up on the competitors. The honest truth about the Pilot is it actually exceeds what these SUVs have to offer and provide even more benefits. One of those is room for 8 passengers as the Pilot has three rows of seats. Another is a sleeker and sportier styling that is very attractive and practical. To those residing in Canonsburg, PA, Washington Honda is a highly popular dealership that offers their Honda vehicles at extremely affordable rates.


Even as a full-sized SUV the 2016 Honda Pilot has a sleek and sporty exterior. The EX-L trim has a front bumper that features multi-reflector halogen headlights and automatic fog lights. Supporting the vehicle on each side are sporty 18” alloy wheels that match well with body-colored side mirrors that have their own heated-features. These mirrors even have an expanded view feature in the driver side. Moving to the rear of the Pilot is a power tailgate release that utilizes smart keyless entry.

Moving inside the cabin of the 2016 Honda Pilot, the cabin is divided into three rows of seats with sufficient cargo room behind the third row. This means that the SUV has room for 8 passenger who get to ride on leather front and rear seats with power and manual adjustable features. These seats even have ergonomic lumbar support to provide added comfort especially on long road trips.


The 2016 Honda Pilot has a powerful and fuel friendly engine that is ideal for today’s economy. It runs on a 3.5 liter Inline V6 engine that allows the vehicle to easily reach maximum speeds of 280 horsepower with 262 pound feet of torque. The engine is also coupled with 6-speed automatic transmission and variable valve timing that gives it the ability to consume lesser fuel than a lot of its competition.


The 2016 Pilot is able to provide a lot of value to its users with its excellent safety package. This consists of multiple safety features such as an anti-theft alarm system that efficiently monitors all external movement.

The key fob sensing feature requires the vehicle key to be with drivers at all times. It also has power-adjustable mirrors which can be controlled inside the vehicle. These mirrors even have their own heating feature which is useful for driving in colder climates. Other tech features of the SUV are:
