Source: Edmunds* The 2014 Honda Pilot perfectly balances value, performance and utility. With a great look and seating for 8, it succeeds in its ability to provide practical-minded buyers with dependable, comfortable, and efficient transportation for their passengers. As a 4x2, it gets an EPA estimated 18 MPG City and 25 MPG Highway, and 17 MPG City and 24 MPG Highway as a 4x4. With short overhangs, a long wheelbase, large grille, and strong geometric lines, the 2014 Honda Pilot has a bold appearance that is bound to impress. Despite its size, the Pilot rides and drives very much like a sedan. It has a fully independent suspension, unit construction, and responsive steering that all add up to great highway directional stability, sure footed cornering on curvy roads, and a comfortable ride for all. The Pilot is offered in four trims which can be bought in two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive versions: the base LX, EX, EX-L, and the top-of-the-line Touring. All Pilots are powered by a 250 Horsepower, 3.5-Liter, i-VTEC V-6 Engine under the hood, and are paired with a 5-Speed Automatic Transmission with Grade Logic Control, and come equipped with a 4-Wheel Independent Suspension. The Base Pilot LX includes a Rearview Camera with Guidelines and an 8-inch screen, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and Streaming Audio, a 229-Watt Audio System with 7 Speakers, and Tri-Zone Automatic Climate Control System. Moving up, the EX model adds fog lights as well as a 10-way-power driver's seat. Higher still, the EX-L includes a leather-trimmed interior, heated front seats, a power tailgate, and a moonroof. Or, treat yourself to the top-level Touring model and get a premium 650-watt sound system with 10 speakers, Corner and Backup Sensor Indicator, Roof Rails, and a Satellite-Linked Navigation System with Voice Recognition and Multi-angle Rearview Camera. Standard Safety on all Pilots includes Anti-Lock brakes, Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control, an array of Airbags, and more. Source: The Manufacturer Summary
The Honda Pilot is unchanged for 2014.
The 2014 Honda Pilot is offered in four different trim levels: LX, EX, EX-L and Touring. The key difference between these models is the range of convenience features and luxury appointments offered. Across the entire lineup, powertrain offerings are essentially the same, with front-wheel-drive or 4-wheel-drive variants of each model.
All Pilots are powered by a 250-horsepower, 3.5L V6 i-VTEC engine that utilizes variable cylinder management to allow the engine to run on just three or four cylinders when cruising or coasting in order to save fuel. The V6 is the workhorse of Honda's lineup and allows smooth, strong acceleration, even with a heavy load.
Honda's 4-wheel drive system is called VTM-4 (variable torque management). It automatically sends more power to the rear wheels when needed. For snowy driveways or muddy trails where a slow, steady grip -- and perhaps even a little slip -- would help, the system provides a "Lock" mode that works in first or second gear, up to 18 mph.
The Pilot is laid out more like a car than a truck, and that comes through with better handling, as well as a better on-road ride than might be expected. The rear multi-link, front-strut layout is close to what's offered in Honda's car lineup, while front ventilated and rear disc brakes, a variable-displacement steering pump and low rolling-resistance tires provide relatively lean performance on the road, with just a bit of added ruggedness. The rear suspension is mounted on a subframe, which helps isolate noise and vibration, and acoustic glass helps keep out wind and road noise.
Inside, the Pilot doesn't just pay attention to the driver. Its three rows of seating are laid out well enough to accommodate adults in all three rows, although you'll want to leave the tallest passengers to the front two rows. The second and third rows have folding seatbacks and feature a 60/40 split, with cargo volume expanding to 87 cubic feet behind the front seats if everything's folded down.
Standard equipment on base Pilot LX models includes tri-zone automatic climate control, an 8-inch Multi-Information Display (i-MID), Bluetooth hands-free calling, Bluetooth audio, a USB port, a rearview camera system, and 2 GB of music storage, as well as cruise control, power windows and locks. EX models are still quite affordable and add a power driver's seat with improved lumbar support, a security system, body-color mirrors and door handles, a HomeLink remote garage-door opener, alloy wheels and fog lamps.
EX-L and Touring models are the more luxurious models in the lineup. EX-L Pilots have leather upholstery, heated front seats, front memory settings, a power moonroof, a power tailgate and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Step all the way up to the Touring and you get roof rails, corner and backup sensors, side-mirror turn signals, a navigation system and rear entertainment system. With the hard-drive-based navigation system you get another 15 GB of space for music. Options are very limited in the Pilot lineup -- as with most Hondas -- but the navigation and entertainment systems are optional in the EX-L.
