Pilot Performance & Exterior Technology
Before we get to some of the flashier tech you can find inside, let’s get familiar with some of the performance and exterior tech that truly powers the Pilot.
If you plan on taking your 2021 Honda Pilot off the beaten path or run into some unpredictably bad weather, you’ll be happy to have the Intelligent Traction Management system on your side. With several unique drive modes (Snow, Mud, Sand), this system uses intelligent traction technology to improve handling and stability, no matter what the conditions outside.
There’s plenty of available tech behind the lights of the Pilot as well, including:
- LED brake and reverse lights
- LED fog lights
- LED headlights with auto-on/off
One piece of exterior tech you’ll certainly take notice of is the power tailgate. This available feature allows you to simply swipe your foot under the rear tailgate of the Pilot, allowing you to access up to 109 cubic feet of cargo space hands-free.
Pilot Interior Comfort & Convenience Technology
Now it’s time to head inside. The Pilot’s interior is loaded with tech features designed for your comfort, convenience, and connectivity. For now, we’ll start with those first two categories.
The main console of the Pilot allows you to access comfort technology, such as the available heated and ventilated front seats with just the push of a button.
Speaking of the simple push of a button, the Pilot interior allows you to easily access the third-row seats with one-touch 2nd-row Seats. With this feature, the simple push of a button on the second-row seats will push them forward, creating easy and spacious access to the third row.
No matter which row you climb into, you can enjoy the rays outside or a moonlit night with the one-touch power moonroof. Along with a sliding sunshade, a convenient set of controls allows you to easily dictate how much sun comes into the vehicle.
Pilot Infotainment & Connectivity Technology
The technology of any great vehicle isn’t complete without some features to help keep you and your passengers entertained and connected. In this department, the Honda Pilot certainly shines.
Housed in an available 8-inch touch-screen display comes a number of smartphone integration features like Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. With these features, you can easily access anything from music and podcasts to messages and navigation right from the center screen.
On top of those, you’ll find plenty of additional entertainment and connectivity tech inside the Pilot, such as:
- SiriusXM® Satellite Radio
- Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® and audio streaming
- CabinTalk® in-car pa system
- Wi-Fi® hotspot capability
- Speed-Sensitive Volume Compensation
Additionally, everyone can enjoy the wireless phone charger and multiple USB ports to keep any device charged on those longer road trips.
To round it all out is the Pilot’s CabinControl® remote compatibility. With the help of a downloadable app, you can easily turn your smartphone into a remote control for your vehicle. It allows you to take control of everything from the front audio to the navigation and automatic climate control systems.
Pilot Safety & Driver Assistance Technology
Lastly, and most importantly, comes the technology that powers the advanced safety and driver- assistance systems of the Pilot. This starts with standard safety features, like the multi-angle rearview camera, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System, and Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Monitor.
From there, the brunt of the work is passed on to the Honda Sensing® technology. Along with this system comes a suite of intuitive driver-assistive technology designed to lend a hand on the journey ahead. That includes features like:
- Collision Mitigation Braking System™
- Road Departure Mitigation System
- Adaptive Cruise Control
- Lane Keeping Assist System
- Forward Collision Warning
- Lane Departure Warning
The safety of you and your passengers is a standard of the Honda Pilot, and the brilliant technology powering its advanced safety and driver-assistive features proves it.
