Test-Drive the 2016 Honda Pilot
What do you get when you take one part minivan and put it together with one part off-road truck? The Honda Pilot, that’s what. Recently redesigned, the new Pilot has a smooth, sleek exterior, and a spacious, luxurious interior.
The 2016 Pilot is smarter too, thanks to items like active noise cancellation, a lighter body for better economy, and a flat load floor for additional cargo space. And then there are items like the power liftgate, windshield wiper de-icers, and hefty 2268 kg towing capacity!

Engine and Economy
Honda’s rock-solid 3.5L V6 returns in the 2016 Pilot, but with a few new tricks up its sleeve to make it more powerful and efficient than before. Producing 280hp and 262 lb-ft or torque, this engine uses new technology like cylinder deactivation and Direct Injection to achieve 12.4L/100km city and 8.8L/100km highway. The LX, EX, and EX-L trims use a 6-speed automatic transmission, while Touring trims use an all-new 9-speed transmission for better economy.
With its new, extended wheelbase, the 2016 Pilot offers comfortable seating for up to 8 adults in its three rows. Younger passengers will get a kick out of the available rear entertainment system with its 9-inch screen. Meanwhile, adults will like having the available heated and ventilated seats, 8-inch touchscreen, and multi-angle rearview camera with dynamic guidelines that makes reversing a synch.
Because of its next-generation ACE body structure, the new Pilot is not only lighter, but safer as well. You’ll find 6 standard airbags, and the Honda Sensing Suite which includes a Forward Collision Warning system, Collision Mitigation Braking System, Lane Keeping Assist System, and Road Departure Mitigation systems in the Pilot. The 2016 Pilot is one of the safest SUVs on Alberta’s roads. Its IIHS (Insurance Institute of Highway Safety) “2016 Top Safety Pick+” award indicates just how safe it truly is.
