This is because they have such a combinational price, luxurious drive, and awesome specifications that you love to enjoy every ride you take in it. One of these cars that can fit for every family is Honda Pilot. This 3-row SUV offers enough space for big family and their luggage. Main rivals on the SUV market, for the new Honda Pilot 2018 will be Toyota Highlander, Nissan Pathfinder, Chevy Traverse and Ford Explorer.
2018 Honda Pilot changes
From the outer side, the looks of the 2018 Honda Pilot are as aspiring as they can ever be. It has a new front grille with three chrome-plated crossbars and the front fascia looks very masculine and tough this way. The body style is also changed as it has changed dimensions overall. It is around 195 inch and 79 in. wide besides being 70 in. high too. However, the ground clearance is low with only 7.5 inch for space. The tough looking car is surely the most ferocious approach by Honda taken this year for the Pilot series though. Just like previous version, it will be available in five trim levels: LX, EX, EX-L, Touring and Elite.
The interior of any car is important as the exterior of the car. In fact, for some people the interior of the car matters more than the exterior. This is the ultimate reason why the new upcoming 2018 Honda Pilot variant will have 8-seat body style in it again this year. It also has optional separated second-row seats (captain chairs) for only seven-passenger capacity. The cabin is equipped with features like multi-function steering wheel, new instrument gauges behind the wheel, 4.4 inch screen as an on-board computer system, soft leather trimming and plastic accents on surface, digital speedometer, metal inserts and especially comfortable front seats too.
Moreover, the heating function is also improved now as it is available for front and second row seats too. The front row seats, however, should be ventilated while the 9 inches TV is also an option for those who want it. When it comes to safety all models will come with plenty features as standard, such as: Vehicle stability assist with Traction control, Anti-lock braking system, Electronic brake distribution, Brake assist, Multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines and Tire pressure monitoring system. Some systems are available only as an option like Collision mitigation braking system, Road departure mitigation system, Forward collision warning and Lane departure warning.

2018 Honda Pilot price and release date
The new Honda Pilot 2018 remains almost the same this time when it comes to its popularity as a crossover and a family wagon both at the very same time. The entire concept of the awesome experience is changed at the production level to be the modest in its current state. It is going to enter the market very soon now. Honda has this time kept in mind all the combinational factors such as tough body and price to rock it all the way.
The 2018 Honda Pilot price has not been released yet but we expect that it will be around previous model value. Its cost will be in combination with the needs unlike last time while it is going to enter the car market in mid-2017.
