What the 2015 Honda Pilot Changes Mean for You

April 6th, 2015 by

HondaThe 2015 Honda Pilot changes have helped this famous crossover SUV find its way into more West Michigan garages this year, but we want to keep one thing clear: Honda has kept what made the vehicle popular in 2014. They’ve just added on a new trim level that’s got drivers eager to get behind the wheel.

New Special Edition Trim

New for the 2015 model year is a Special Edition (or SE) trim level of the Pilot, and it fits right between the EX and EX-L trims to give drivers something more in the way of technology without going for the full-blown luxury feel of leather upholstery and heated front seats. In short, it strikes an excellent balance between both the EX and EX-L trim levels, adding on:

  • Rear DVD entertainment system
  • 115-volt power outlet in the front console
  • One-touch power moonroof
  • Unique 18-inch alloy wheels

Drivers of the Pilot SE can also opt for the standard two-wheel drive or the available four-wheel drive system.

Everything else about the Pilot remains intact, including its suite of standard amenities that have helped make the 2015 Pilot LX one of the most popular entry-level SUVs we have ever seen. Each model comes with bluetooth HandsFreeLink for phone and audio, a touchscreen infotainment system, rearview camera, Pandora internet radio, SMS text message integration, and much more.

Under the hood is a 3.5L V6 engine with 250 hp, and all 2015 Pilot 2WD models earn an EPA-estimated 25 highway mpg,* proving that you can indeed have a fuel-efficient SUV with room for the whole family. When you aren’t filling its 8 seats with your friends and family, feel free to expand the cargo area to as much as 87.0 cubic feet when those rear seats are folded down.
