The Honda SUV was completely transformed for its entrance in the 2023 Honda lineup.

With this new model, the Honda Pilot is starting its fourth generation, and it’s clear the Japanese manufacturer set itself no limitations when the time came to improve their vehicle.

With your Lallier Honda dealership in Montreal, discover the new Honda Pilot powertrain, cargo space, well-furnished cabin, and its price.

The Powertrain on the New Honda Pilot

The 3.5 L V6 engine of this Honda SUV was updated and is now more powerful than it was in the previous models.

The engine now generates 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. The old 9-speed automatic transmission was replaced with a new 10-speed transmission with paddle shifters.

All-wheel drive is included standard on the new Pilot, which is another difference in comparison with previous models, since front-wheel drive used to be standard and all-wheel drive optional.

Towing Capacity and Cargo Volume of the 2023 Pilot

This new generation of the Pilot offers more cargo space than ever before.

When we look at the dimensions of this new Honda Pilot, we quickly notice that it gives access to:

  • 635 L of cargo volume behind the third row of seats
  • 1,685 L of cargo volume behind the second row
  • 3,166 L of cargo volume behind the front seats.

You shouldn’t run out of space, and you’ll be able to bring all you need and more during your next getaway.

In addition to the increased cargo volume, this new Pilot also improves the amount of room that passengers have inside the vehicle, which is particularly attractive for long family trips.

If all this space is not enough to convince you of the 2023 Honda Pilot’s practical side, then maybe its towing capacity, which goes up to 5,000 lb, will do the trick.

The Technologies and Accessories Inside the Honda SUV

Space is not the only thing that was improved inside the 2023 Honda Pilot. It’s also full of new technologies.

To start with, the touchscreen was expanded, and all the trim levels, except the Sport, now offer a 9-inch display. To this we can add wireless compatibility with Apple CarPlayMD and Android AutoMD.

This addition is only one of many in a long list of available accessories inside this new Honda SUV. Among the technologies offered inside, we find:

  • BOSE sound system with 12 speakers and a subwoofer
  • Wi-Fi hotspot
  • USB chargers for all three rows of seats
  • Blind Spot Information System
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Warning
  • And much more!

In short, you’ll be lacking for nothing once you’re inside this Honda vehicle.

2023 Honda Pilot Reviews

Since the 2023 Honda Pilot is new on the market, it can be difficult to get a good idea of the vehicle.

Fortunately, a few journalists and reviewers had the chance to test drive the vehicle and share their impressions.

Reviewers are very favourable towards the Pilot; they praise the various improvements, namely the all-wheel drive transmission and the better off-road capabilities of the Honda Pilot TrailSport.

On the Pilot’s off-road model, MotorTrend says:

“The 2022 Honda Pilot TrailSport was a three-row SUV in rugged-looking costume. The new one is totally different.[1]”

If all the Pilot trim levels benefited from the makeover, off-road enthusiasts will be happy to learn that the TrailSport is the version that gained the most from the transition.
