Used Honda Pilot for Sale near Sherwood Park, AB
If you need to be able to transport up to eight people in some style and considerable comfort but you don’t want a minivan and you don’t want to pay silly money, it's hard to come up with a better solution than the Honda Pilot. In 2015, Honda made a huge splash when it completely redesigned the Pilot for its third-generation, and the used Pilot has to be one of the best used SUVs around for those who need the extra capability of three rows of seats.
Even if you don’t need all that seating capacity, the Pilot makes a sensational vehicle for hauling all sorts of loads due to its spacious, flexible interior and extremely capable and refined powertrains.
Is this really only a midsize?
You could easily believe the Honda Pilot was a full-size crossover SUV rather than a midsize offering, especially when sat on the inside of this excellent vehicle. The capacity for passengers, cargo or a combination of both is incredible, and this really does have to be one of the most practical and versatile vehicles in its class.
You'll find cupholders everywhere you look, the third row folds down for a flat cargo floor, there’s a reversible cargo panel for storing dirty stuff from the beach or park, and the cargo well behind the third row offers plenty of room even with all seats being in use.
A used Honda Pilot's interior isn’t just about space and you'll soon notice this is a very high-quality and well-built vehicle that even borders on luxury at higher trim levels. All models come well-equipped but high-spec models do a good impression of prestigious luxury rivals costing considerably more than this superb Honda.
Perfect for the job
You don’t have to fret about which engine you need to go for with a used Honda Pilot as all third-generation models feature the same engine, which is a 3.5-litre V-6 unit that's perfect for the job with its 280 horsepower and 262 lb.-ft. of torque. What you may want to consider is whether you want a six or a nine-speed automatic transmission or front- or all-wheel-drive.
Although all models use the same engine, LX, EX and EX-L models come standard with the six-speed automatic with the nine-speed auto limited to Touring and Elite models.
You'll find that all used Pilots offer beautifully composed handling at all trim levels and with all wheel and tire packages and few crossover SUVs come close to delivering the combination of compliant ride and relaxed steering of the Pilot. The Pilot has been developed to deliver the perfect middle-ground position between comfort and performance, with quick electric steering, a straightforward build-up of steering weight off-centre, and a relatively small turning circle for a vehicle of this size and capability.
From generous to positively lavish
A base Pilot LX from 2016 onwards comes standard with a full set of power features, cruise control, air conditioning, cloth upholstery, a 5.0-inch color audio display, air conditioning and 17-inch alloy wheels. Although this specification may miss a few features some would want in their perfect family cruiser this is still an awful lot of used vehicle for a very reasonable amount of money.
However, most of the used Honda Pilot models you find will be EX models or higher, and the EX is a sensational value-for-money package with the likes of a standard power driver's seat, tri-zone climate control, a LaneWatch right-side camera, remote start, satellite radio, two more USB ports than the LX, and additional connectivity of Pandora audio streaming and texting capability.
Go all the way to a used Honda Pilot Elite and you'll then be treated to LED headlights, a pair of panoramic roof panels, rear heated seats, front ventilated seats, a heated steering wheel, automatic high beams, HD radio and second-row captain's chairs.
You'll also get the Honda Sensing suite of advanced safety features as part of the standard equipment that you may also find on some lower trim levels where it was an option. With later models, Honda Sensing is part of the standard equipment at every trim level.
