2018 Honda Pilot vs 2017 Honda Pilot

Proudly Serving Michigan City, IN

The Pilot is Honda’s popular midsize SUV that many of today’s buyers are drawn to. While it has been included in the Honda lineup since 2003, the 2016 model year introduced the third generation of this SUV. The 2017 Honda Pilot had a stunning facelift with smart additional standard features in comparison to the 2016. Because the 2017 model was so well-equipped and popular with consumers, Honda did not make any changes to the 2018 model. Because of this, the sales price for both model years is very similar. Bosak Honda Michigan City is the place to go when you are ready to take a closer look at in-stock inventory for both model years and to receive personalized assistance from our sales team.

Performance

Because the powertrain and mechanical features for the 2017 and 2018 Honda Pilot SUV are the same, you can expect both model years to deliver the same stellar experience behind the wheel. The base engine in the lowest trim level is a 3.5-liter, V6 engine that consumes regular unleaded fuel and that provides 280 horsepower. This engine includes a six-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, front-wheel drive and 18-inch machined aluminum wheels. Keep in mind that options are available in different trim levels. For example, the 2018 Elite trim level includes the same engine, but it has a nine-speed automatic transmission with auto-manual, overdrive and all-wheel drive. The best way to learn more about all of the trim options available for both model years is to stop by the dealership for a test drive.

Appearance

There are variations based on the trim level that you select, but you will notice that all Pilot SUVs for both years have a signature three-bar design on the chrome grille that Honda is known for. They also have the same contoured profile with a robust hood and black body molding along the lower perimeter of the vehicle. The exterior colors are mostly similar for both model years as well. Higher-level trims for both years come with a sunroof and LED lights as standard equipment. Tire sizes also vary based on the trim level that you select.
