2017 Honda Pilot Available Now With Apple CarPlay & Android Auto, Priced From $30,595

Honda’s seven-seater Pilot is entering its second model year in the market armed with a series of interior updates.

The 2017 Honda Pilot now comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as a new fingerprint-resistant touchscreen and an expanded interior color palette.

“The all-new third-generation Pilot has been a huge hit with SUV buyers,” said Jeff Conrad, Honda Division senior vice president and general manager. “For 2017, we’re making Pilot even more appealing with new technology and options that our customers are seeking.”

Under the bonnet there’s a 3.5-litre i-VTEC V6 petrol that produces 280hp and 262lb-ft (355Nm) of peak torque. Honda offers a choice of two transmissions; a six-speed automatic or a nine-speed automatic gearbox on upper trim levels. Customers are able to choose between 2WD and AWD versions.

All Pilot models come with Honda’s Intelligent Terrain Management System, offering different driving modes for both the AWD and the 2WD versions. The system basically adjusts the drive-by-wire map, transmission shift map, Vehicle Stability Assist™ and i-VTM4 torque distribution for AWD-equipped models for optimal performance in a variety of road or surface conditions.

Pricing for the 2017 Honda Pilot kicks off at $30,595 for the 2WD LX model, with the AWD LX costing from $32,395.
