Explore Changes Made to the 2017 Honda Pilot
The 2017 Honda Pilot brings standard V6 power, up to 109 cubic feet of cargo room, and top-notch technologies like a Blu-Ray/DVD entertainment center to the popular line of SUVs. It also makes a few changes to improve your drive, adding all new connectivity functions and a greater array of personalization options.
2017 Honda Pilot Changes
The biggest change that comes with the fantastic new Honda Pilot is the addition of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto across all trim levels. These state of the art connectivity technologies have already graced a number of Honda models, including the Accord and the Civic, so we were thrilled to see them finally fitted with one of the country’s most popular three-row SUVs.
Going beyond standard Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto allow drivers to more fully integrate their vehicles with the diverse functions of their smartphones. You’ll be able to make calls, take calls, and even handle text messaging with ease. But the real advantage is being able to access a growing number of apps through your onboard touchscreen.
You can find and book restaurants, check sports scores, stock values, news updates, and weather conditions, listen to audiobooks, find shops using apps such as Yelp, and even link up with your device’s navigational software. If you need to find an Italian eatery in Malin, just use voice recognition software to search for one. If you need to find the quickest way from Keno to Medford without getting stuck in traffic, navigational apps can help you out.
Better yet, the Pilot presents those technologies with an all-new 8-inch touchscreen, which has been treated with a special coating to prevent fingerprints from clouding your view.
Other changes include a few cosmetic updates, plus the addition of several new exterior colors. You can now choose from:
- Steel Sapphire Metallic
- Obsidian Blue Pearl
- Dark Cherry Pearl
- Black Forest Pearl
- Crystal Black Pearl
- Modern Steel Metallic
- Lunar Silver Metallic
- White Diamond Pearl
