If you were asked to come up with a list of the top vehicles in the midsize SUV segment, there is a good chance that the Honda Pilot would show up somewhere near the top. It's been an icon in the segment for a while now, and it's back for the 2018 model year. Before you get behind the wheel, allow us to teach you a little more about the 2018 Honda Pilot and why it's well worth a test drive here in Rome GA.

Let's start with what's under the hood. The Pilot is certainly not short on power, as it comes equipped with a V6 engine that is able to put out 280 horsepower. You'll also enjoy 262 lb-ft of torque to help provide some additional "oomph" to your driving experience. This can be paired to either a 6-speed or 9-speed automatic transmission, as well as an available Intelligent Variable Torque Management AWD System.

Technology and Safety Features in the 2018 Honda Pilot

Of course, if you're getting the Pilot, you probably have a family with children. That means safety is going to be a top priority for you, and the Pilot certainly does not disappoint in that area. This is partially thanks to Honda Sensing®, a suite of safety technologies that give you peace of mind on the road. Such features include a Road Departure Mitigation System, Lane Keeping Assist System and Collision Mitigation Braking System.

Also with the kids in mind, as well as your own enjoyment, are the 5 USB ports you may find in your Pilot. There are also up to three 12-volt outlets, a 115-volt outlet and an HDMI port. This helps ensure that everyone gets to stay connected on those long family road trips. Moreover, you'll also find an available 9-inch Rear Entertainment System featuring a screen that pops right out from the headliner to play DVDs or Blue-rays.

There is so much more we could share about the 2018 Honda Pilot, but at some point, you'll just have to get behind the wheel to experience it for yourself here in Rome GA. To learn more, contact us at Heritage Honda. We look forward to meeting you.
