This is the Honda Pilot. It’s more spacious than most. It’s more
impressive than ever. It’s got adventure for eight written all over it.
It’s ready to tow with a standard integrated trailer hitch and, with
the incredible fuel efficiency of the Variable Cylinder Management™
system, it’s in for the long haul. Its MacPherson strut front with
multi-link rear suspension makes it handle with car-like precision
and rock-like stability. While its smart, storage-wise versatility
allows you to pack more into your Pilot than you can into a single
weekend. This is the Honda Pilot. This is going to be fun.
