2019 Honda Pilot Performance and Capability

Six cylinders of power never interrupts the peace of your cabin thanks to advanced Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) technology. Accelerating to pass in busy traffic between Naperville and Aurora should feel like a calm cruise through Bolingbrook, and your ride is perfectly ironed out through MacPherson strut front suspension and multi-link rear suspension.

Standard all-season tires come in handy when you decide to venture off-road, and an Intelligent Variable Torque Management (i-VTM4) AWD System — which is available across all trim levels — provides peace of mind when crossing rougher terrain. Optional Intelligent Traction Management includes modes for Snow, Sand, and Mud.
