2023 Honda Pilot in Vernon, British Columbia

The 2023 Honda Pilot arrives at the Bannister Honda showroom with an all-new design and a lot more to offer, including a new, more rugged trim grade. Some of the updates include more generous dimensions, enhancing the platform’s passenger capacity as well as a new powertrain. Early reviews from online automotive experts have praised the 2023 Pilot for its exceptional manners on the road, as well as its general ability to keep passengers as comfortable as possible. Follow along with Bannister Honda while we examine the latest member of the Honda Pilot family.

Exterior

Rugged & Refined Design

The Honda Pilot has always deftly split the difference between rugged capability and sophisticated refinement. That is very much on display in the 2023 model with a litany of special features, including an all-new one-touch power panoramic moonroof.

TrailSport Features

Owners of previous Honda Pilot models certainly aren’t strangers to off-road environments. The all-new TrailSport differs from the standard 2023 Pilot model in a few different ways, including:

  • Additional height
  • Additional width
  • And a trim-specific grille design.

Clear Camera Views

Having cameras surrounding a vehicle to give drivers a better view of the area isn’t new. However, versions of the 2023 Honda Pilot with the multi-view camera system will also be equipped with the capability to clear the lenses of debris and dirt.

 

 

Interior

Massive Cargo Capacity

Nobody will have to worry about leaving anything behind with the 2023 Honda Pilot. Every 2023 Pilot trim grade offers more than 3,000 litres of cargo volume when the second and third rows are properly stowed. However, the TrailSport trim offers the most at 3,219 litres.

Flexible Passenger Space

Like previous versions, the 2023 Pilot is equipped with three rows of seats. Depending on the trim grade and configuration, the vehicle can hold seven or eight passengers. However, for the new 2023 model year, passengers will have more interior room to use. Touring and Black Edition models offer an on-demand removable second-row seat that can be stored in the rear.

Comprehensive Climate Control

If the weather outside of the 2023 Honda Pilot won’t cooperate, the inside will be as warm or cool as necessary. In addition to easy-to-use climate controls, the 2023 Pilot features several creature comforts like:

  • Heated and leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Heated front seats
  • Available ventilated front seats
  • Available heated/ventilated second-row

Performance & Capability

Engine Efficiency

Honda has improved the performance specs offered by the 2023 Pilot. It uses a similar naturally aspirated 3.5-litre, V-6 engine. However, it makes an additional five horsepower, topping out at 285 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. All trims use a 10-speed automatic transmission.

Automatic AWD

Incredible capability is built right into the 2023 Honda Pilot. In order to help drivers confidently and safely handle just about anything Mother Nature can dish out. The Honda all-wheel drive system can send an increase in torque to a slipping wheel to help maintain traction.

Stout Towing Capacity

Depending on how the 2023 Honda Pilot is equipped, it will be able to tow up to 1,588 kg (3,500 lbs.) or as much as 2,268 kg (5,000 lbs.). If towing is a top priority, make sure to ask about the automaker’s available 2023 Pilot towing accessories.

 

 

Technology

Digital Device Integration

Bannister Honda customers will be able to choose between a 7- or 9-inch touchscreen display in the 2023 Pilot, depending on which trim grade they choose. All models are compatible with both the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto suites of applications.

Digital Driver Information Centre

Traditional analog gauges have been replaced by a 7-inch colour TFT driver information display. Not only will this show the vehicle’s speed and tachometer, but drivers will also be able to monitor fuel consumption, media features, and navigation.

In-Vehicle PA System

There is a lot of space inside the 2023 Honda Pilot. It can be difficult for people in the back to hear the driver — especially if they are arguing back there. The CabinTalk™ In-Car PA system uses a microphone in the steering wheel and the audio systems speakers to get the point across to people in the rear seats.

Safety

Active Safety Technology

Advanced Honda safety technology has changed the automotive safety landscape. Honda Sensing® technology is a comprehensive suite of active safety systems that will help drivers avoid potentially dangerous situations. Honda Sensing® includes:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking
  • Forward Collision Warning
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Lane Keep Assist
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Road Departure Mitigation
