Honda Pilot Model Years


Research by Year

The Honda Pilot arrived on the scene in 2003, before we started referring to crossovers as crossovers. Instead of body-on-frame design and four-wheel drive, the Pilot had unibody construction and all-wheel drive. This mattered little to Pilot buyers, who didn’t need off-road prowess—they wanted Honda reliability, good traction and seating for up to eight.

A second generation with more truck-like styling appeared in 2009. Its squared-off lines defy the industry trend to curvaceous styling, but also provide more usable interior space.

Major changes included: The second generation Honda Pilot underwent a major redesign, which included a refreshed exterior and interior and a new 250-hp 3.5-liter V6 engine. The Pilot is offered in four trim levels, including LX, EX, EX-L and Limited. All models come with Honda's new 3.5-liter V6 mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission and have the option of full-time four-wheel drive with Variable Torque Management. The new engine features Variable Cylinder Management, allowing the car to run on three, four or all six cylinders depending on engine load. This helps maximize fuel economy and efficiency. A tire pressure monitoring system is also standard on all models.

For 2006, the exterior is slightly updated to incorporate design cues from the Ridgeline, while the interior gets a refreshening that includes new seat fabrics and a modified instrument panel design. Also all trims of the Pilot include side curtain airbags as standard equipment. In addition, in the 2006 model year, a 2WD becomes available.
