Jet Away in the 2017 Honda Pilot SUV at Brantford Honda
The New Honda Pilot has arrived at Brantford Honda and it’s ready to take over the garages of Ontario families over the next year or two. The third generation of this intermediate-sized SUV has a confident new styling, its most fuel-efficient powertrain ever, and a redesigned interior that manages to offer you more room and convenience with a lighter net weight than any of its predecessors. Whether you find yourself wowed by its available 20-inch wheels, or just the handiness of being able to transport eight passengers around town, you don’t need to attend Top Gun Academy to drive off in a new Honda Pilot, but you might just find yourself with the same swagger.

2017 Honda Pilot Engine & Economy
Since before the age of Mad Men, Honda has been known for its superior engine manufacturing. The new 2017 Honda Pilot brings with it a new age of powertrains, the Earth Dreams Technology system. Powered by an all-new 3.5L i-VTEC DI V6 engine, the powertrain is completed with a choice of a new 6-speed automatic transmission or a Honda first, 9-speed automatic; standard FWD or available AWD.
The drive system also includes what Honda calls its Idle Stop system, an intelligent technology that shuts off the engine when your vehicle is stopped and idling, but instantly fires back up the moment you lift your foot from the brake pedal. You use a disproportionately high amount of fuel while idling, so even though EPA fuel ratings have not yet been released for the new Pilot, fuel savings are expected to be substantial. Lastly, the re-engineered body frame of the new Pilot allows it to drop 135 kilos from its weight, which instantly converts to additional gains in towing capacity and fuel economy.
2017 Honda Pilot Interior Upgrade
The cockpit of the 2017 Honda Pilot is something for all future Honda models to draw inspiration from. With seating for up to eight and the room for a 70L cooler between the 3rd-row and the hatch, the recently redesigned 2017 Pilot also features for the first time 2nd-row captain’s seats, providing a more comfortable and maneuverable environment for your wingmen.
The Pilot is also loaded with one of the most impressive technology packages announced so far: 5 USB ports, allowing you to charge everyone’s devices on the go; HDMI and headphone jacks available, so the backseat gaming or DVD/Blu-ray viewing isn’t too distracting; standard heated front seats, with available heated steering and 2nd rows on the menu, too. And these are just a taste of the features Honda has tantalized us with!
2017 Honda Pilot Safety Innovation
How we looking, Goose? The 2017 Honda Pilot arrives with what the manufacturer describes as “the most comprehensive set of advanced safety and driver-assistance technologies ever offered on a Honda vehicle.” Not only are able to check your six with the backup camera and 8-inch console display screen, but you’ll be covered in all directions around the clock with such other tech features like Blind Spot Monitoring, Lane Keeping Assist System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Forward Collision Warning, and another Honda first, Road Departure Mitigation System. Add this to the (above) standard driver protection packages you already know and expect from every Honda vehicle, and you have the instructions for bar raising.
