(2005 model shown)

Honda's seven-passenger, crossover sport-utility vehicle comes powered by a 244-horsepower 3.5-liter V-6 engine that includes an electronic throttle system. Front-drive models come with Variable Cylinder Management in which half the engine's cylinders are shut down at cruising speeds for added fuel efficiency.


The Pilot's available VTM-4 (Variable Torque Management-4WD) system combines the best aspects of four-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. As with most all-wheel-drive systems it's normally a front-drive vehicle that sends power to the rear wheels automatically when needed, but when conditions become seriously slippery, you can engage and lock 50 percent of power to the rear wheels at the push of a button.


The 2006 updates include newly standard side-curtain airbags, exterior styling tweaks, and other revisions designed to reduce noise, vibration, and harshness.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
