2020 Pilot Engine Power & Performance
The Pilot gets its powerful performance from the 3.5L V6 under the hood. This engine comes mated to the 6-speed automatic transmission, but drivers can swap it out for the 9-speed automatic transmission with Shift-By-Wire and Paddle Shifters. This transmission is available on the Touring, Elite, and Black Edition trims.
The engine is capable of generating 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. There are two factors with the engine that assist it in achieving its optimal fuel efficiency: the Direct Injection system and the Variable Cylinder Management™, which utilizes three of the six cylinders during routine performance.
Audio Entertainment & Technology
The new Honda Pilot offers an assortment of fun and sophisticated features to help you get more out of the miles. The vehicle includes a 7-speaker sound system that delivers audio that you select from the 5-inch LCD screen. Opting for the EX trim or higher will bring the 8-inch touchscreen into the mix.
The EX and higher trims also offer plenty of updated features to add more options for your entertainment and connectivity. These features include HondaLink®, Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, and CabinControl® Remote Capability. This feature gives you access to your vehicle from your phone in terms of the audio entertainment, the available navigation system, and the climate control!
