Safety & Technology
You don’t think Honda would load up the 2022 Pilot with all that smart design and performance capability only to skimp on safety and technology, do you? The three-row Pilot offers a wealth of amenities to make every road trip the best ever, with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability courtesy of the 8-inch colour touchscreen running the advanced Honda Display Audio System. Second and third row passengers will be kept happily occupied, courtesy of the available, advanced rear entertainment system with 10.2-inch screen, Blu-Ray™ player, and embedded streaming apps, while Honda’s Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ allows for confident trip planning (or replanning).
In terms of safety, the incredibly smart suite of Honda Sensing™ features comes standard on the 2022 Pilot, adding Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, the Collision Mitigation Braking System™, and more into your arsenal. Of course, that’s in addition to the 4-wheel Anti-lock Brakes, BrakeAssist, Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control, and other safety systems that resulted in the 2021 Honda Pilot garnering a perfect five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration).
Honda Pilot Model Changes
The newest version of this three-row SUV hasn’t changed drastically since the 2021 Honda Pilot hit the scene, though its trim levels have been reorganized. The L and EX trims are no longer here, replaced with the new base Pilot Sport. A more aggressively-styled and off-road capable TrailSport trim has also joined the mix, perfect for families that feel as at home in a tent as they do in their house. The reorganized trims also result in better-equipped models, with an 8.0-inch touchscreen and LED headlights now standard across the lineup. Add in the new Sonic Grey Pearl paint option, and the 2022 Pilot offers enough to tide customers over until Honda releases a revamped Pilot for the 2023 model year.
