Trim Levels of the 2018 Honda Pilot

The trim levels of the 2018 Honda Pilot have something for everyone! Its LX, EX, EX-L, Touring, and Elite models all offer a dependable drivetrain, a voluminous interior, high-end amenities, and advanced safety technologies! When all this is taken into account, it’s not hard to see why the writers at The Car Connection have declared that this year’s Pilot “ranks among the very best three-row crossover SUVs.” Keep reading to find out which of the Pilot trim levels has what it takes to satisfy the needs of West Michigan’s drivers.

Honda Pilot LX

The Pilot’s baseline LX trim may seem spare when compared to the upgrades detailed below, but even though 2WD models are priced at just $30,900 MSRP,* this model provides power, efficiency, and interior dimensions that can put competitors to shame.

  • Flexible Interior: The Pilot’s LX trim can seat eight across its three rows of seating, and provides 152.9 cubic feet of passenger space. Additionally, making more room for your equipment is as easy as can be! Both its second and third rows of seating are 60/40-split fold-down bench seats, so you’ll be able to access up to 109 cubic feet of cargo space.
  • 3.5L i-VTEC V6: The Honda Pilot’s standard engine block produces up to 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. What’s more, it produces this power efficiently, maintaining fuel economy of an EPA-estimated 19 mpg city and 27 mpg highway in 2WD models.** It’s been manufactured with direct injection and is joined by a 6-speed automatic transmission.
  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: It’s hard to beat the convenience offered by this powerful, easy-to-use safety feature. You’ll be able to check your surroundings with top-down, wide-angle, and normal viewing modes, and you’ll even be able to position yourself with guidelines.
