Hello Honda Cars lovers, welcome to All-New Honda, Today we will take a look into the new 2022 Honda Pilot.
The Pilot has additional standard equipment for 2022, including full LED headlights and an 8.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, but these enhancements come at a much higher starting price. A new Sonic Gray Pearl paint color is also available. Honda has announced that a new model will be released later this year.
2022 Honda Pilot Trims Levels
With the LX and EX trim levels no longer available, the new SUV is available in five trims levels, EX-L, Special Edition, Touring, Elite, and Black Edition. In terms of prices, The 2022 Honda Pilot Elite is the Expensive one, which has a value of around $50,345.
Here are the details of the price for each trim of the 2022 Honda Pilot!
- EX-L: $40,285
- Special Edition: $40,885
- Touring: $44,845
- Elite: $50,345
- Black Edition: $51,845
Interior Design & Features
The inside of the Pilot is roomy and practical, with family-friendly features including an in-cabin PA system. For those that need to seat eight people, most trim levels provide a three-across second row. The bench is replaced with two captain’s chairs in the most expensive models, bringing the total number of passengers down to seven. However, due to the low seat cushion in the roomy third row, it is truly only suitable for children. The dashboard of the Pilot has easy-to-use climate controls and a clearly indicated gauge cluster, as well as 16 cupholders across the interior.
The Pilot’s elevated seating position provides a commanding perspective of the road, and its wide windows and thin, inconspicuous roof pillars provide it best-in-class visibility. This Honda boasts a massive cargo compartment and numerous inside storage cubbies. It’s one of the roomiest SUVs in its class, although the cargo capacity differs between the seven- and eight-seat configurations due to a second-row center console that can’t be removed on the Elite and seven-seat Touring versions. The cargo floor is movable, allowing for the maximum room or the creation of an underfloor storage compartment.
One of the Pilot’s flaws is the annoying center touchscreen, however, Honda did add a much-needed volume knob in 2019. The 5.0-inch display in the base LX provides the essentials, while the 8.0-inch touchscreen in the EX and above grades has SiriusXM satellite radio, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto connectivity, voice command, and other app capabilities. The EX has navigation as an option, while the Touring and Elite have it as standard.
Engine & Performance
The Pilot’s V-6 engine has a lively sound and lots of power, while the nine-speed automated transmission is quiet and unobtrusive. Although the Honda isn’t the heaviest three-row crossover to drive, its bulk can make it seem heavy when cornering. The highest models’ 20-inch wheels degrade ride quality a little but also add to the Pilot’s otherwise odd appearance. When the vehicle is filled with people and goods, it rides pretty smoothly. Because of its lack of body control, the Pilot appears to be separated from the road at times. Its mild steering makes parking-lot maneuvering a breeze, but it also adds to the car’s detached sensation on the interstate.
According to both the EPA and Caranddriver testing, fuel economy is strong within Honda’s showroom, and the Pilot is exceptionally efficient for such a large and practical car. In the city, the front-wheel-drive variant will get 20 mpg and on the interstate, it will get 27 mpg. The addition of all-wheel drive reduces both official ratings by 1 mpg, resulting in totals of 19 mpg city and 26 mpg highway. On our 75-mph fuel-economy route, the all-wheel-drive-only Elite variant we tested achieved 27 mpg, exceeding its highway rating.
