2021 Honda Pilot Specs
Unlike most 3-row models, the Honda Pilot complements its commanding performance with the efficient agility of a smaller model. Whether you’re driving through the country or the city, the 2021 Honda Pilot has the specs you need to get you and your family to your destination.
2021 Honda Pilot Engine Options
Every trim level of the 2021 Honda Pilot comes with the same exceptional 3.5L 24-Valve SOHC i-VTEC® V6 for:
- Up to 280 hp
- Up to 262 lb-ft of torque
- Tow up to 3,500 lbs. with 2WD models
- Tow up to 5,000 lbs. with AWD models
As Edmunds writes: “We tested a Pilot Elite and recorded a 0-60 mph sprint of 7.0 seconds, which is a bit quicker than most rival midsize three-row SUVs.”
Active Control Engine Mount System (ACM) and Active Noise Cancellation™ (ANC) technology, keeping things quiet inside the cabin so passengers will barely notice the engine’s roar.
2021 Honda Pilot Drivetrain Options
Drivers also have the opportunity to select the right drivetrain to meet their needs. Options include:
- 2021 Honda Pilot 2WD: Comes as standard with the LX, EX, EX-L, Special Edition, and Touring. Perfect for drivers who want to prioritize efficiency ratings.
