For 2022, the Pilot comes with more standard features.

The ever-popular Honda Pilot returns for model year 2022 showing off some changes worth noting. One of the improvements involves the base infotainment system, which has been upgraded with an 8-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto (until this model year, the Pilot’s standard infotainment system had a smaller screen that lacked touch capability and smartphone integration). LED headlights are also now standard across the board. If you’re familiar with the previous versions of the Pilot, you may also notice that the 2022 lineup no longer offers the LX and EX trims. Instead, the Sport debuts to replace the LX as the entry-level choice. The TrailSport trim has been introduced as well, and it’s sure to grab the attention of those with an adventurous spirit.

Trims, Powertrain, and Fuel Economy

The 2022 Honda Pilot is a midsized three-row crossover that comes in a choice of seven trim levels: Sport, EX-L, Special Edition, TrailSport, Touring, Elite, and Black Edition. The powertrain is the same for all: a 3.5-liter V6 engine (280 horsepower and 262 lb.-ft. of torque) with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard on the Sport, EX-L, Special Edition, and Touring with all-wheel drive as an option. AWD is standard on the TrailSport, Elite, and Black Edition. The FWD version boasts a 3,500-pound maximum, while the AWD one maxes out at 5,000 lb.

The Pilot is notably fuel-efficient. With FWD, its EPA-estimated fuel economy is 20 mpg around town and 27 mpg on the highway. The AWD models sip a bit more fuel, returning 19 city/26 highway instead.

Amenities By Trim

The Sport comes with LED headlights and fog lights, heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, roof rails, Smart Entry with Walk Away Auto Lock (Honda’s fob-less entry/exit system), push-button start, a multi-functional center console storage area, an overhead console conversation mirror and sunglasses holder, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 20-inch pewter-grey alloy wheels, and convenient one-touch folding/sliding second-row seats that provide easy access to the third row (which splits 60/40). This well-equipped base trim is also set up with heated front seats, tri-zone automatic climate control, two USB ports (one for charging and the other for data), three 12-volt power outlets, smartphone-based remote cabin controls, and HondaLink remote services.

The EX-L goes without roof rails, but it scores a moonroof, a power tailgate, side mirrors with position memory and reverse gear tilt-down, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with a HomeLink universal garage door opener, leather upholstery, a power-adjustable front passenger’s seat, position memory for the driver’s seat, two second-row USB charge ports, 18-inch machine-finished wheels, and manually operated second-row sunshades. The Special Edition adds roof rails, 20-inch gloss-black alloy wheels, a hands-free liftgate, and a wireless phone charger. The TrailSport should appeal to outdoor enthusiasts. Although the hands-free liftgate has been replaced with the regular power one, it gets roof rails, 18-inch gloss-black wheels, and wireless charging. As far as its off-road attributes are concerned, the TrailSport flaunts higher ground clearance (7.9 in. vs. 7.3 in.), fender flares, rugged tires, and front- and second-row all-season floor mats.

The Touring resembles the Special Edition, but with 20-inch machine-finished wheels and without the wireless charger. This trim does, however, return the hands-free liftgate and qualify for second-row captain’s chairs (which reduce seating from eight to seven). What’s more, it also gains silver roof rails, chrome exterior accents, illuminated front beverage holders (with the captain’s chairs, the second-row cup holders are illuminated as well), blue ambient interior lighting, and heated outboard second-row seats. This trim is especially popular with road-tripping families, especially since it’s also outfitted with a rear Blu-Ray entertainment system that has a 10.2-inch screen and HDMI interface. The Elite features the most upscale amenities in the bunch. It retains the 20-inch machine-finished wheels and gets wireless smartphone charging, standard second-row captain’s chairs, power-folding and auto-dimming side mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, a panoramic roof, a heated steering wheel, and ventilated front seats. The on-trend Black Edition is essentially an appearance package for the Elite: it’s blacked-out and trades blue ambient lighting for red.

Safety

The Honda Sensing bundle of advanced active safety technologies is installed on every trim. Its roster includes forward collision warning with collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and automatic high beams. The Touring and above trims are upgraded with front and rear parking sensors.

Infotainment and Connectivity

The Sport, EX-L, Special Edition, and TrailSport get an 8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, SiriusXM satellite radio, and a seven-speaker sound system. The TrailSport gains integrated navigation, while the Touring, Elite, and Black Edition spoil their occupants with a 10-speaker multi-zone audio system and a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot.
