2016 Honda Pilot Available Soon Near Bowie, MD
Full Of Great Technology And Performance Features
The newly redesigned 2016 Honda Pilot available soon near Bowie, MD, is coming this summer, but Pohanka Honda in Capitol Heights, Maryland, has the latest information on this refined sport utility vehicle. With a bold new design and everything you've come to expect from a Honda, the 2016 Pilot might just change the way you look at mid-size crossover SUVs.
This third generation Honda Pilot returns with a 3.5-liter i-VTEC® V6 engine with either the standard six-speed automatic transmission, or the all-new nine-speed automatic that's available on the higher trims. The rather ingenious Variable Cylinder Management™ (VCM™), which is a great feature that is designed to give you optimum performance and fuel efficiency, also comes standard.
By only using all six cylinders when necessary, like when you're accelerating, the 2016 Pilot will switch over to three or four cylinders during normal cruising speeds to save power and give you a better fuel economy. As expected, the 2016 Pilot will come with a standard front-wheel drive system, but an all-new all-wheel drive (AWD) system will also be available. Plus, the 2016 Pilot is nearly 300 pounds lighter than the previous model.
It just wouldn't be a Honda without some high-level technology and convenience features, and the 2016 Pilot does not disappoint. An upgraded eight-inch touchscreen display audio interface is powered by an Android-based operating system and a more powerful processor. An embedded Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System® has been upgraded as well, with better graphics and improved features like 3D renderings of buildings, terrain, and road signs.
The HondaLink® system works in tandem with the display audio for smartphone connectivity, and you'll never have to worry about running out of charging options because the 2016 Honda Pilot available soon near Bowie includes five USB ports. And four of these ports have a 2.5-amp output, which means you can charge a smartphone and an iPad® while in use.
A good SUV would be nothing without outstanding safety features, and the 2016 Pilot is able to cover all your safety needs. Dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags and driver and front passenger SmartVent® airbags makes sure you're protected, and side-curtain airbags for the outboard seating positions make sure any rear passengers are covered. For a great confluence of technology and safety, Honda Sensing suite is available for the Pilot and you'll get the Collisions Mitigation Braking System™1, Adaptive Cruise Control2, Lane Keeping Assist3, Honda LaneWatch™4, and Lane Departure Warning5.
Coming Summer 2015, the 2016 Honda Pilot available soon near Bowie, MD, will be well worth the wait. If you're looking for more information, stop by your local Capitol Heights Honda dealer and speak with our staff today.
