So far, 2012 has been full of accomplishments for the Honda line. The new CR-V is proving quite worthy in meeting the adventurous lifestyles of our drivers, while the CR-Z (in its second year of production) is solidifying its position as the world's finest sport hybrid. Joining these headliners is the 2012 Honda Pilot, a dynamic SUV that has been completely redesigned for the new model year. Available now at Planet Honda, the Pilot is the refined, functional SUV that you have been looking for.
The new Pilot is available in four trim levels: the LX (2WD
/ 4WD), EX (2WD / 4WD), EX-L (2WD / 4WD) and Touring (2WD / 4WD). Let's talk
about the 4WD EX, a popular choice among our customers. The EX comes equipped
with a 3.5-liter V-6 Engine that's good for 250 horsepower. The
ultra-responsive engine takes advantage of an automatic transmission-fluid
cooler for optimal performance at all times. The Variable Torque Management®
4-Wheel Drive System (VTM-4®) makes sure that your vehicle is under complete
control, even during the worst driving conditions. And when you do happen to
face an uphill battle, hill start assist gives you and your transmission the
extra boost that you need to get going.
Inside, the Pilot EX is designed with convenience and functionality in mind. To begin with, the driver's seat features 10-Way power adjustment and power lumbar support to keep the person at the wheel comfortable. From there you can depend on innovative features like heated power side mirrors, a fuel consumption indicator and illuminated controls for complete control. Leave it to the passengers to focus on the 229-watt, 7-speaker audio system (with subwoofer) and the best way to make use of the 2GB CD library.
Yet, functionality isn't limited to electronics. The Pilot's 8-passenger seating arrangement can easily be manipulated to accommodate any kind of storage. This is thanks to 60/40 split, flat-folding, sliding and reclining second-row seats, as well as 60/40 split, flat-folding third-row seats.
Of course, no Honda would be a Honda without top-tier safety features. The Pilot features an Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) Body Structure that is specifically designed to keep you and your family safe during impact situations. Airbags protect each row of seats, including Occupant Position Detection in the first row and a rollover sensor for the side curtain airbags in the third row.
We're happy with the results of the 2012 redesign of the Pilot; its refined exterior gives way to a fully-functional interior that's up to any challenge. The Pilot joins the full stock of new and used Honda vehicles at Planet Honda.
