The 2018 Pilot has about the same room in its cabin as a minivan but comes in full-sized SUV form with third-row seating. While larger adults will find the third row to be slightly on the small side, it is a great seating area for children who do not require car seats. With third-row seating in place, you get 16.5 cubic feet of cargo space. When you fold that row down, you can get 46.8 cubic feet of cargo space. Of course, you can max out your cargo space by folding the second row down as well for an impressive 83.9 cubic feet. As far as leg room goes, in the third row you can get 31.9 inches, while in the second row there is 38.4 inches available. Up front, leg space measures out at 40.9 inches. In addition to utility and comfort, the Pilot has a ton of technological features packed throughout the cabin. These features include a standard 5-inch touchscreen display that can be upgraded to an 8-inch touchscreen complete with smartphone app integration and SiriusXM satellite radio capabilities. There is a standard 4.2-inch driver's display screen as well. Regardless of which trim you get, there is an audio system that can be heard throughout the cabin. The Touring trim level comes with an upgraded 10-speaker sound system.

As far as mechanical features go, it is hard to deny the fact that the Pilot has a lot of power. Don't be surprised if you find yourself wanting to contact Brad Deery Honda, serving Moline Illinois. It's just a short drive from Moline and is worth it to experience the sturdy 3.5-L V6 engine that comes standard. This powerful engine gives the Pilot a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds. 18-inch alloy wheels come standard, but they can be upgraded to chic 20-inch alloy wheels that are coated in black. The steering wheel is tilt-and-telescoping, providing an excellent range of maneuverability for drivers of all shapes and sizes. The brakes feel solid when you place your foot down on them, and there is a manual pedal parking brake. While the ride quality might seem slightly stiff, the suspension is actually softer than you might expect. The vehicle feels light and easy to navigate thanks to the easy steering it provides. The wheel gives off a sense of precision steering, and the Pilot remains predictable on hilly and uneven road surfaces. As far as handling goes, the Pilot feels lighter than most SUVs in its class and offers competitive acceleration speeds.

Powertrain - Honda Pilot specs serving Moline IL

For anyone who is seeking a 2018 Honda Pilot near Moline, the powertrain on the Honda Pilot alone makes the vehicle worthy of taking out for a test drive. The standard 3.5-L V6 engine is capable of producing 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. This engine is paired with a standard 6-speed automatic transmission. However, a 9-speed automatic transmission is available on the two line-topping trim levels (the Touring and the Elite). The 9-speed automatic transmission helps get the Pilot from 0 to 60 mph in just 6.9 seconds, which is an outstanding performance for a third-row SUV. When traveling at higher speeds with moderate to heavy loads on board, the 9-speed automatic provides smooth transitions between gears and doesn't make the SUV feel as weighted down as it is.
