2020 Honda Pilot Specs

Drivers looking for a ruggedly capable SUV able to carry up to 8 passengers without sacrificing commanding performance and strong efficiency ratings should find themselves impressed by Honda Pilot specs.

  • Honda Pilot Horsepower and Torque
  • Honda Pilot Fuel Economy
  • Honda Pilot Performance Features
  • Honda Pilot Active Safety Features

Honda Pilot Horsepower and Torque

Too many drivers have come to expect lackluster performance from a vehicle accommodating enough to offer three rows of seating, but that might just be because they haven’t taken a test drive in the new Honda Pilot.

All models fit the same 3.5L 24-Valve SOHC i-VTEC® V^ engine as standard for up to:

  • 280 hp
  • 262 lb-ft of Torque

Direct injection helps deliver brisk acceleration when you need to take off in the city and the V6 holds more than enough power in reserve for passing at speed on the highway. At the same time, an Active Control Engine Mount System (ACM) and Active Noise Cancellation™ (ANC) combine to ensure your ride remains whisper-quiet.

As summed up by Edmunds.com, “there’s no doubt the standard V6 has plenty of power to move this large crossover.”

Honda Pilot Fuel Economy

It would be easy to assume the Honda Pilot’s decision to fit V6 power as standard across all trim levels would lead to unreasonably high fuel consumption figures, but the vehicle’s forward-thinking transmission systems ensure that doesn’t happen.

Efficiency scores come in at:

  • Up to an EPA-estimated 19 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway with 2WD 6-speed automatic trims*.
  • Up to an EPA-estimated 18 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway with AWD 6-speed automatic trims*.
  • Up to an EPA-estimated 20 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway with 2WD 9-speed automatic trims*.
  • Up to an EPA-estimated 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway with AWD 9-speed automatic trims*.


You’ll use:

  • 6-Speed Automatic Transmission (6AT) with LX, EX, and EX-L trims.
  • 9-Speed Automatic Transmission (9AT) with Shift-By-Wire (SBW) and Paddle Shifters with Touring, Elite, and Black Edition trims

Further efficiency features include:

  • Eco Assist™ System: Displays the impact of your driving style on efficiency and coaches you to do better.
  • Idle-Stop: Turns off the engine when you come to a stop.
  • Active Cylinder Management: Shuts down two engine cylinders during steady cruising.


Honda Pilot Performance Features

The new Honda Pilot is available with an Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ (i-VTM4®) AWD System across all trim levels, so it’s ideal for growing families who like to get out and stay active on the weekend. You can even tow:

  • Up to 3,500 lbs. with FWD.
  • Up to 5,000 lbs. with AWD.


7.3 inches of ground clearance lets you head up steep inclines and over uneven terrain, and further performance features include:

  • Intelligent Traction Management: Cycle between different drive modes for Snow, Sand, and Mud to feel your Honda Pilot immediately react and adapt.
  • Sophisticated Suspension: All models come fitted with MacPherson Strut Front Suspension and Multi-Link Rear Suspension for a smooth ride.
  • Power-Assisted Ventilated Front Disc: Works to provide added stopping power for a safer and more responsive ride.
  • All-Season Tires: Keep driving with confidence whether it’s the hottest day of summer or the wettest day of winter.
