New-for-2015 Pilot Special Edition (SE) includes styling, technology and convenience upgrades
Pilot remains the uniquely capable eight-passenger “Ultimate Family Adventure Vehicle” and is now available in five feature-rich trim levels
MARKHAM, ON (July 7, 2014) – With the new Special Edition (SE) trim level, fuel efficiency and a go-anywhere, do-anything capability that fits the lifestyles of active families, the 2015 Honda Pilot goes on sale today with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) starting at $35,1001.
Honda’s renowned engineering excellence and quality combine to produce a practical and versatile three-row, eight-passenger family SUV with a NRCan highway fuel economy rating2 of 13.3/9.3/11.5 K/100 km (2WD) and towing capacity3 of 2045 kg (4WD models). Add a low cost of ownership and five feature-rich trim levels and the 2015 Pilot is the “Ultimate Family Adventure Vehicle.”
New for 2015, the Pilot Special Edition (SE) is positioned between the LX 4WD and EX-L RES 4WD trim levels and includes sporty pewter gray aluminum alloy wheels, special SE badging, a one-touch-open power moonroof with tilt feature, Sirius XM radio and a Honda DVD Rear Entertainment System. Standard features on all 2015 Pilots include remote entry, rearview camera and an integrated Class III trailer hitch.
All 2015 Pilots are powered by a refined and fuel-efficient 250-horsepower4 3.5-litre i-VTEC V-6 engine with Variable Cylinder Management™ (VCM™). The engine is paired with a five-speed automatic transmission with Grade Logic Control to help maintain the most appropriate gear when climbing or descending steep grades. The 2015 Pilot is available with 2-wheel drive (LX 2WD) or with Honda’s Variable Torque Management® 4-wheel-drive system (VTM-4®) that adds fully automatic 4-wheel-drive capability and features a “lock mode” that can deliver the maximum-possible torque transfer to the rear wheels to aid extraction from extremely low traction or stuck conditions.
The Pilot’s powertrain is complemented by a rigid body structure and fully independent suspension – with MacPherson strut front and multi-link with trailing arm rear – that provides the foundation for its responsive handling and comfortable ride. These traits are complemented by chassis geometry producing impressive cornering capability and easy maneuverability in tight parking situations.
