Honda has recently released the pricing details of the 2014 Pilot and such move intends to inform buyers with the cost that they need to handle in the event that they are interested in buying this vehicle.
Based on the information provided by the Japanese carmaker, the 2014 version of the Honda Pilot will be offered in four trim levels that are made up of the LX, EX, EX-L and Touring trims. All of these trims are powered by a 3.5-liter i-VTEC engine which is capable of producing a maximum power output of up to 250 horsepower.
Honda has also revealed that the engine used in the upcoming version of the Pilot was one of the most-efficient that was offered in the vehicle. This is because the said engine was designed to operate in four and three cylinder modes. Thus, the amount of fuel that the vehicle consumes could further be reduced depending on the engine’s mode.
In terms of pricing, the two-wheel drive version of the Pilot LX will be sold with an MSRP of $29,670 while the 4WD variant is priced at $$31,270. The MSRP of the two-wheel drive version of the Pilot EX on the other hand is sold at a price of 31,920 and the 4WD costs about $33,520. The 2WD Pilot EX-L which is equipped with the RES is priced at $36,770 while the four-wheel drive model with the same add-on costs about $38,370. Finally, Honda confirmed that that the 2WD Pilot Touring which comes with the RES and navigation system is priced at $39,820 while the 4WD with the same features costs about $41,420.
In addition to that, Honda also explained that the 2014 version of the Pilot will come with a boxy exterior design and simple lights. This also lacks the stylistic flairs that are seen on most of its rivals since the Pilot was designed to become a totalitarian vehicle.
Inside the, the Pilot features a cabin layout which is very straightforward. The controls are easy to use and some of the materials used in the cabin are mediocre. However, the vehicle’s boxy design allows it to provide a generous amount of cargo space. Honda estimates that the Pilot offers about 18 cubic feet of space behind its third-row seats. Folding the third-row seats increases the space to about 47.7 cubic feet while folding the second-row allows the vehicle to provide 87 cubes.
