Discover the brand new 2009 Honda Pilot. In typical Honda fashion, the new style is in a way based on the last version that made a success. However, they did go a bit out of the standard. First thing you’ll notice is an awkward, big grill. The new pilot also looks a little more squared off in the last version.
Engine power is up a bit, to 250 HP. That won’t impress the class leaders, but Honda doesn’t focus on that. Gas mileage also improved slightly, to 17 city / 23 highway on the 2WD model. That’s about par for class.
