Like Joe DeMatio, I was a bit shocked to see the $41,175 price tag on the Pilot. Although it's not uncommon for press cars to arrive with every option box checked, some of this Touring model's extras, including Bluetooth, a USB input, and a power liftgate, are standard on competitors. Honda, with its love of bundles, won't even let you opt for most of these extras until you step up to $35,000 EX-L trim.
Of course, Honda gets away with this because the Pilot has become one of the most sought after vehicles in the suburbs. And for good reason. It's quiet, easy-to-drive, and enjoys a reputation for reliability. Some newer competitors surpass it in fuel economy and interior packaging, but overall, it remains a good choice in an increasingly crowded segment.
