Part 1: Overview
Overview
The Honda Pilot is designed to provide a comfortable, confident and fun driving experience with plenty of power to match its capabilities as an eight-passenger SUV with off-road capabilities and up to 4,500-pound towing capabilities (4WD). For 2009, Honda engineers prioritized fuel efficiency for the all-new Pilot and applied the latest generation of the company's Variable Cylinder Management technology to all models. Low emissions, a broad torque curve and low maintenance were also key development targets.

The Pilot is powered by an advanced 3.5-liter 24-valve i-VTEC, V-6 engine mated to an electronically-controlled 5-speed automatic transmission. Peak engine output is 250 horsepower at 5700 rpm and 253 lb-ft. of torque at 4800 rpm. The "intelligent" Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (i-VTEC®) valvetrain technology with Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) allows the V-6 engine to operate in six-cylinder mode for power and four- and three-cylinder modes for efficiency. The Pilot meets California's stringent Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle (ULEV-2) exhaust emissions standards. A fully-automatic Variable Torque Management 4-wheel drive system (VTM-4) is available on all models and delivers seamless "decision free" application of four-wheel drive when needed.

Powertrain Summary

  • 3.5-liter i-VTEC engine
  • 250 horsepower at 5700 rpm, 253 lb-ft. of torque at 4800 rpm
  • Variable Cylinder Management
  • Honda-estimated EPA city/highway fuel economy of 17/23 (2WD) and 16/22 (4WD)
  • ULEV-2 emissions rating (CARB)
  • VTM-4 four-wheel drive (available)
  • 100K +/- Miles No Scheduled Tune-Ups
  • Regular unleaded gasoline
