2013 Honda Pilot EX-L 4D Sport Utility Details
The 2013 Honda Pilot is offered in four different trim levels--LX, EX, EX-L and Touring. The key difference between these models is the range of convenience features and luxury appointments offered; across the entire lineup, powertrain offerings are essentially the same, with front-wheel-drive or 4-wheel-drive variants of each model.
All Pilots are powered by a 250-horsepower, 3.5L V6 i-VTEC engine that also has variable cylinder management (VCM), allowing the engine to run on just three or four cylinders when cruising or coasting in some situations to save fuel. It allows smooth, strong acceleration, even with a heavy load.
Pilot 4WD models come with a system called VTM-4 (variable torque management) that automatically sends more power to the rear wheels when needed; and for snowy driveways or muddy trails where a slow steady grip--and perhaps even a little slip--would help, the system provides a Lock mode that works in first or second gear, up to 18 mph.
The Pilot is laid out more like a car than a truck, and that allows better handling, as well as a better on-road ride, than you might think based on its boxy exterior. The rear multi-link, front-strut layout is close to what's offered in Honda's car lineup, while front ventilated and rear disc brakes, a variable-displacement steering pump and low rolling-resistance tires provide relatively lean performance on the road, with just a bit of added ruggedness. The rear suspension is mounted on a subframe, which helps isolate noise and vibration and acoustic glass helps keep out wind and road noise.
Inside, the Pilot doesn't just pay attention to the driver. Its three rows of seating are laid out well enough to accommodate adults in all three rows--although you'll want to leave the tallest, lankiest ones to the front two rows. The second and third rows have folding seatbacks and, in a 60/40 split, with cargo volume expanding out to 87 cubic feet behind the front seats if everything's folded.
Standard equipment on base Pilot LX models includes tri-zone automatic climate control, an 8-inch Multi-Information Display (i-MID), Bluetooth hands-free calling, Bluetooth Audio, a USB port, a rearview camera system, and 2 GB of music storage--as well as cruise control, power windows and locks. EX models are still quite affordable and add a power driver's seat with added lumbar support, a security system, body-color mirrors and door handles, a HomeLink remote garage-door opener, alloy wheels and fog lamps.
EX-L and Touring models are the more luxurious models in the lineup; EX-L Pilots have leather upholstery, heated front seats, front memory settings, a power moonroof, a power tailgate and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Step all the way up to the Touring and you get roof rails, corner and backup sensors, side-mirror turn signals, a navigation system and rear entertainment system. With the hard-drive-based navigation system you get another 15 GB of space for music. Options are very limited in the Pilot lineup--as with most Hondas--but the navigation and entertainment systems are optional in the EX-L.

Ride And Handling
Styling That Goes Against The Grain
Honda has made Bluetooth HandsFreeLink connectivity a standard feature on all Pilot models for 2013, along with a USB port, a new high-resolution eight-inch Multi-Information Display (i-MID) and a backup camera system. Automatic climate control is also now included at all trim levels.
Otherwise, a new exterior color, Obsidian Blue Pearl, replaces Bali Blue Pearl.
The Pilot is boxy crossover utility vehicle that's focused around interior passenger space--with three roomy rows of seating--yet it also incorporates just a bit of the ruggedness of traditional SUVs. The Pilot's upright body makes it one of the most useful and versatile in this size class--versus models like the Toyota Highlander, Ford Explorer and Nissan Pathfinder--because its rather low cargo floor and flat-folding seats allow easy loading or combinations of people and gear.
According to Honda the Pilot is the most fuel-efficient eight-passenger SUV, and it's one of the most fuel-efficient vehicles with three rows of seating. Towing capability is also better than typical for a crossover; it's rated to tow up to 4,500 pounds.
