2013 Honda Pilot Test Drive & Crossover SUV Video Review
The 2013 Honda Pilot is a very flexible vehicle and one of only a handful of crossover SUVs with a third row of seats. Since 2003, the Honda Pilot has become a favorite people mover of the masses. This second generation Pilot was totally redesigned in 2009 but recently received a facelift in 2013. There are 4 different trim levels and the Pilot can be equipped with FWD or as a 4x4. The base price for the LX FWD model is $29,520 with the top of the line Touring 4x4 with Rear Entertainment and Navigation $41,270. Get More Info on the 2013 Honda Pilot Most people prefer SUVs to Minivans; even though an SUV cannot carry as much cargo or passengers as a Van can. As you will see in this test drive video review, the 2013 Honda Pilot comes close to doing everything a Minivan does. FWD is standard and AWD is optional on this mid-sized crossover SUV. And while the Pilot really can't do serious off-roading and only tows 4500 lbs; the Pilot is built to meet the needs of most drivers. On the outside the 2013 Honda Pilot appears to have been designed with a T-Square because this crossover SUV is first and foremost a utilitarian vehicle and not something extra stylish or flashy. Under the hood lives a 3.5 liter V-6 engine that makes 250 horsepower and 253 lb-ft. of torque. The transmission is still a 5-speed automatic. Fuel Economy is even with the rest of the pack at 18 MPG ion the city and 25 MPG on the highway. Cargo space wise the 2013 Honda Pilot will hold 18 cubic feet behind the 3rd row seats, fold those down and you get 47.7 cubic feet, and fold down the second row and you now have a very large 87 cubic feet of cargo volume. Inside the Pilot is very roomy in the second row easily fitting 3 passengers. As mentioned before the Pilot is very utilitarian and that theme continues to the inside of the SUV where there is plenty of storage bins and the dash is well sorted. The 2013 Honda Pilot might not be the best looking mid-sized crossover SUV on the road, but it is incredibly practical for families large and small. In the end the pilot is a safe, affordable, practical, and comfortable SUV. See More Car Videos Join Our Facebook Page
