Model Analysis

The 2021 model year of the Honda Pilot brings back the same engine seen in 2020. This engine delivers ample power for a fully loaded SUV, whether it is loaded with people or cargo. Available all-wheel-drive goes a long way when it comes to larger vehicles, but on the Pilot, it is backed up by the onboard intelligent traction management system which is designed to improve handling in tough terrains like sand, mud, or snow. Being a three-row vehicle, the entertainment features must be good. The Elite trim blows straight past “good” to become one of the best vehicles for entertaining a vehicle full of passengers.
