Part 1: Overview
Overview
As a crossover SUV that mixes car sensibilities with the truck capabilities, the Pilot is designed to deliver a confident, secure and fun driving experience with outstanding isolation of undesirable noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) for exceptional comfort in all driving conditions. The fully-independent chassis design also provides the foundation for the Pilot's capabilities as a people and cargo hauler, as well as an off-road vehicle.

The Pilot provides an exceptionally-wide wheel track of 67.7 inches front and 67.5 inches rear for high levels of handling stability and interior space. Chassis components were designed to provide for well-controlled body motions with ride and handling characteristics that are balanced and secure. The use of fully isolated front and rear suspension subframes enhances the Pilot's outstanding NVH controls to provide a ride that is quiet and secure.

Chassis Summary

  • MacPherson strut front suspension
  • Multi-link rear suspension with trailing arms
  • 4-wheel disc anti-lock braking system with electronic brake distribution and brake assist
  • Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) with Traction Control
  • All-season P245/65R17 tires
  • 21.0 gallon fuel tank capacity (+0.6 gallons)
  • Larger diameter disc brakes (13.0 inches front, 13.1 inches rear)
