The Overview

The Pilot returns for 2022 with the same muscular powertrain. It’s motivated by a strong 3.5-liter, i-VTEC V6 engine. Honda rates this engine to develop 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. A nine-speed automatic transmission quickly routes power to the wheels. When driving the new Pilot, you’ll immediately notice its responsive performance. Road tests show the Pilot can accelerate to 60 mph in 6.2 seconds, thus putting it among the quickest SUVs in the segment. Intelligent Traction Management allows you to choose from four driving modes: Normal, Snow, Mud, and Sand. If you need enhanced traction, opt for the advanced AWD system. Another one of the SUV’s highlights is its 5,000-pound towing capacity. This is a big advantage for drivers who need to transport a load.
