The 2022 Honda Pilot is a medium-sized 3-row SUV that can accommodate up to eight people. He is one of the main players in the crossover area of the 3-row SUV. The cabin is spacious and versatile. It offers up to 109.2 cubic meters of cargo space and can be equipped with a pair of captain’s seats in the second row, making it a 7-person SUV. Offering light off-road capabilities, the pilot is powered by a refined V6 engine and retains its value.
For 2022, the Honda Pilot is offering five equipment variants: EX-L, Special Edition (SE), Touring, Elite and Black Edition. A new entry level equipment will be announced later. All vehicles for sale are now equipped with a 9-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters, 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as LED headlights. Contrary to its nomenclature, the Black Edition is available in both Crystal Black Pearl and Platinum White Pearl.
At the top of the range, a fully loaded Honda rider will top the $ 50,000 mark. We were able to spend a whopping $ 57,558. Here is an overview of what you get:
- Pilot Black Edition with AWD included: $ 50,620 (excluding the $ 1,225 target fee)
- Platinum White Pearl exterior: $ 395
- Perforated captain’s chairs in the second row (included in the Black Edition)
- A variety of accessories including everything from kayak, bike, surf, ski / snowboard racks and roof boxes to lighted running boards and a tent that attaches to the back of the pilot. All in all, these items add around $ 7,000 in extras
- A slew of trim changes like chrome mirror caps ($ 106), splash guards ($ 123), and a trailer hitch ($ 384).
Fully loaded model, plus two new colors
With the Black Edition you get everything that is standard in the Pilot Elite equipment – including all-wheel drive with torque vectoring, windscreen wipers with rain sensor, self-dimming side mirrors, panoramic roof and heated steering wheel – as well as access to two colors only in the Black Edition: Crystal Black Pearl and Platinum White Pearl.
Heated captain’s chairs
These are standard in the Pilot Black Edition and reduce the passenger capacity of the Honda Pilot to seven (instead of eight). Both seats have perforated leather with heated seats.
Air conditioning in the second row / additional connections
A nice feature is the integrated air conditioning in the second row, which offers the rear passengers additional comfort. It’s neatly packaged with additional ports that include headphone jacks, a standard 115-volt plug, and inputs for an HDMI cable and USB ports.
All kinds of accessories including tent
You can equip any trim pilot with loads of accessories. No matter what outdoor sport you and your family enjoy, the pilot offers ways to transport, attach and access these toys with ease.
You can opt for everything from roof boxes and baskets to kayak, surfboard and bike racks. One of the nicest features that you can opt for with the 2022 Honda Pilot is a fixed tent that connects to the rear cargo area and gives you covered and closed access to both the inside of the pilot and the outer tent. For just $ 408, it’s a nice accessory that you won’t see on a lot of other vehicles.
