The 2011 Honda Pilot continues to represent the refined, comfortable, and family-oriented vehicle choice with space for eight passengers and a wide variety of useful capabilities and premium features.
New for 2011, the availability of the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System expands to the Pilot EX-L model, a feature previously exclusive to the top-level Pilot Touring model.
The 250-horsepower V-6 engine provides both performance and enhanced efficiency with Variable Cylinder Management, a technology that can deactivate up to three of the engine’s six cylinders to save fuel when cruising or lightly accelerating.
The available Variable Torque Management 4-Wheel-Drive directs power to the wheels with the most traction in rain, snow and slippery terrain. All models are equipped with a standard towing hitch receiver and a maximum tow rating of 4,500 pounds on 4WD models and 3,500 pounds on 2WD models.
Consistent with contemporary SUV styling, the exterior conveys a bold and substantial approach that also helps to maximize interior space, yet the 2011 Honda Pilot still maintains a garage-friendly exterior length of less than 16 feet.
The interior emphasizes an expansive feel with an efficient and modern design that supplies 152.7 cu-ft. of passenger space within three rows of seats.
The instrument panel’s wide center stack intelligently groups similar controls for the audio system, climate controls and the available Navigation and Entertainment System (if equipped).
Base model estimated mpg: 17/23
Estimated starting price: $28,045
