2005 Honda Pilot EX

Review continues below
Honda's Odyssey-based "crossover" sport-utility vehicle receives a number of upgrades for 2005, none the least of which is a more-powerful 250-horsepower 3.5-liter V-6 engine that includes a "drive by wire" throttle system. A tire-pressure monitor and a new magnesium-frame steering-wheel are included across the line, while keyless entry is added to the LX trim level, Honda's Vehicle Stability Assist system becomes standard on the EX version and a six-disc CD changer is now included on both the EX and EX-L models. A new fuel tank design provides approximately 40 miles of added cruising range, the Pilot's five-speed-automatic transmission receives revised fourth- and fifth-gear ratios and the Pilot's steering pump has been upgraded to afford enhanced on-center feel. The Pilot's available VTM-4 (Variable Torque Management-4WD) system is claimed to combine the best aspects of four-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. Standard equipment includes anti-lock brakes, front-side airbags, a CD stereo, air conditioning, cruise control, power locks and mirrors, and a rear wiper/washer. A back-seat DVD entertainment system and a satellite navigation system are optional.
