Although it is functional and truck-like from the outside, the 2013 Honda Pilot has an impressive interior cabin to transport passengers. It is perfect for those families in need of a roomy interior and three rows of seating, but who want something more stylish than a minivan. For even more fun on the weekends, the four-wheel-drive model can tow up to 4,500 pounds.
As far as powertrain is concerned, the 2013 Honda Pilot has a five-speed automatic transmission paired with a 250-horsepower, 3.5-liter V6 engine. This combination allows for good maneuverability and gives the driver a smooth driving experience. The 2013 Honda Pilot's MPG ratings make it one of the most fuel-efficient three-row vehicles.
It is available in LX, EX, EX-L, and Touring trim levels. All four come with a choice of either two-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive. While the lower trims include keyless entry and a seven-speaker sound system, the two upper trims offer leather upholstery, a power tailgate, a USB-iPod connection, and more.
For years it has been a top choice for those concerned with safety and the 2013 model is no different. It includes side-curtain airbags covering all three rows in addition to the usual safety features. New for this model year, a rear-view camera system is standard on all trim levels.
The 2013 Honda Pilot seats up for eight passengers and has enough bins and storage compartments to exceed many people's expectations. While also considering its outstanding safety scores, this SUV has the versatility and quality needed for today's families.
