The 2018 Honda Pilot is a carryover model with a starting price of $30,900 which goes up to $47,470 for the top-end Elite AWD trim. For the price, you get a 3.5-liter V6 engine with a choice of two automatic gearboxes and FWD or AWD configuration options. The engine of the Pilot offers quick acceleration and a smooth drive. The ride quality of the Pilot also remains comfortable although the handling could have been slightly better.
The Pilot doesn't offer best in class towing capacity but what it does offers is good fuel economy figures and a spacious cabin. Both of which remain a priority for a buyer with a large family who loves to go on long drives. That said, the 'Top Safety Pick' award from the IIHS further reassures buyers' decision on the Pilot as everyone prefers a safe ride for themselves and their family.
