Seek Adventure – The 2017 Honda Pilot
What do you get when you mash a minivan together with an off-road truck? The new Honda Pilot, that’s what. Completely redesigned from the ground up, the new Pilot offers a smooth, sleek exterior, and a spacious, luxurious interior.
The 2017 Pilot is smarter too – with items like active noise cancellation, a lighter body for better economy, and a flat load floor for even more cargo space. And that’s before you get into items like the power liftgate, windshield wiper de-icers, and hefty 2268kg towing capacity.
Ready to explore the new Pilot for yourself? Then visit Sun Valley Honda in Medicine Hat, AB and peruse our New Vehicle Inventory to find a new Pilot that meets your needs. We also carry plenty of pre-owned examples from as recent as 2016 and 2015 in our Used Vehicle Inventory.
Engine & Fuel Efficiency
Honda’s stalwart 3.5L V6 returns in the 2017 Pilot, but has a few new tricks up its sleeve to make it more powerful and efficient than before. Producing 280hp and 262 lb-ft, this engine uses cylinder deactivation and Direct Injection to achieve 12.4L/100km city and 8.8L/100km highway. LX, EX, and EX-L trims use a 6-speed automatic, while Touring trims use an all-new 9-speed transmission for increased economy.
With its newly stretched wheelbase, the 2017 Pilot offers comfortable seating for up to eight adults in its three rows. Younger passengers will love the available rear entertainment system with its 9-inch screen, five USB ports, and 110V outlet. Meanwhile adults will appreciate the available heated and ventilated seats, 8-inch touchscreen, and multi-angle rearview camera with dynamic guidelines that makes reversing a breeze.
With its next-generation ACE body structure, the new Pilot is not only lighter, but safer as well. With six standard airbags, and the Honda Sensing Suite which includes a Forward Collision Warning (FCW) system, Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), and Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) systems amongst others – the 2017 Pilot is one of the safest SUVs in all of Alberta. Its IIHS (Insurance Institute of Highway Safety) “2017 Top Safety Pick+” award is proof of this.
