Trims and Powertrain

The trim lineup for the 2025 Honda Pilot consists of the Sport, EX-L, TrailSport, Touring, Elite, and Black Edition. Their powertrain is a 3.5-liter V6 coupled to a 10-speed automatic transmission with shift-by-wire technology and paddle shifters. While every Pilot delivers up to 285 horsepower and 262 lb.-ft. of torque, the drivetrain will determine both the towing capacity and fuel economy ratings of this SUV.

Pilots with the standard front-wheel drivetrain (FWD) return an EPA-estimated 19 mpg city/27 mpg highway and have a towing capacity of 3,500 pounds. Although the intelligent variable torque management (i-VTM4) AWD system is available across the entire lineup, it comes standard on the TrailSport, Elite, and Black Edition. The AWD system nearly matches the fuel economy of FWD, returning an estimated 19 mpg city/25 mpg highway on all but the TrailSport, which achieves 18 city/23 highway. For any trim, AWD will enable a higher towing capacity: 5,000 pounds. The TrailSport alone is outfitted with Trail Torque Logic, which works in conjunction with AWD to provide enhanced traction when the “Trail” drive mode is selected.

Standard Features

Regardless of the trim, all ‘25 Pilot SUVs have one-touch, fold-flat second-row seats, a flat-folding third-row bench seat, a reversible dual-lever cargo floor, four cargo area tie-downs, and seating for up to eight passengers (except for the TrailSport, which seats seven with second-row captain’s chairs instead of a bench seat). The Sport has a 7-inch driver information interface screen, tri-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a driver’s seat with 10-way power adjustment, a passenger’s seat with 4-way power adjustment, two USB ports in the front row, two USB ports in the second row, a 12-volt power outlet in the front console, Smart Entry with Walk Away Auto Lock, and LED exterior lighting throughout the automatic headlights, fog lights, daytime running lights, taillights, and brake lights. The EX-L adds second-row controls to the tri-zone climate system, memory settings to the driver’s seat, two more USB ports in the third row, and another 12-volt power outlet in the cargo area. It also has leather upholstery, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink, CabinTalk in-car PA system, a wireless phone charger, and a programmable power tailgate.

It’s all about ruggedness for the TrailSport, which gets all-terrain tires, an integrated Class III trailer hitch, underbody skid plates, recovery points (front/rear), and a heated windshield wiper zone. Its cabin is upgraded with second-row fold-flat captain’s chairs, a heated steering wheel, a power moonroof, and durable synthetic leather seating surfaces with orange stitching. The Touring has LED a stowable second-row center seat, ambient lighting (second and third rows),  in-trunk seating storage for the third row; the power tailgate gains hands-free access and walk-away-close functionality.

The Elite moves up to a 10.2-inch screen and adds perforated leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, a 4-inch head-up display, LED lighting in the door trim, and heated outboard second-row seats. The Black Edition is an appearance-driven package with blacked-out treatments on the front fascia, window trim, door garnishes, and rear bumper, while gloss-black accents are found on the alloy wheels, grille bar, and side mirrors. Its interior gets red-accented, perforated leather upholstery with the Black Edition logo embossed on the front seats; red contrast stitching on the steering wheel, seats, and door panels; and red accent lighting throughout the dashboard, center console, and doors.

Active Driver Aids and Safety Equipment

Every ‘25 Pilot carries the Honda Sensing safety suite containing collision mitigation braking, forward collision warning, cross traffic monitor, adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, traffic jam assist, a blind spot information system, road departure mitigation, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, a driver attention monitor, traffic sign recognition, and automatic high-beam headlights. A rear seat reminder is also included to prevent a busy driver from forgetting any precise cargo when they exit the vehicle. Parking sensors (front and rear) and low-speed braking control are added at the EX-L level, while a TrailWatch feature and multi-view camera system are installed on the TrailSport, Elite, and Black Edition.

Infotainment and Connectivity

The entry-level Sport has a 7-inch color touchscreen and a seven-speaker audio system, while the EX-L and TrailSport upgrade to a 9-inch color touchscreen and a nine-speaker audio system with a subwoofer. The Touring and above retain the 9-inch screen but move up to a Bose premium sound system with multi-zone audio. All six trims have Android Auto and Apple CarPlay (wireless in all but the Sport), Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and streaming audio, SMS text messaging, a radio data system, and HondaLink access. All but the Sport get HD Radio, SiriusXM satellite radio, a volume knob, smart shortcuts, and customizable feature settings. The Touring, Elite, and Black Edition receive connected navigation, voice recognition, Wi-Fi hotspot capability, and trial subscriptions to HondaLink connected services.
