Honda’s largest crossover SUV, the Pilot, is a family-oriented vehicle with three rows of seats and a foot in both the mid-size and full-size classes, mainly because it’s always had seating for up to eight people. Before the Pilot arrived for the 2003 model year, Honda’s mid-size SUV was the Passport, which was a clone of the Isuzu Rodeo that filled a gap in Honda's lineup while it designed its own SUV. When properly equipped, the all-wheel-drive Pilot can tow up to 5,000 pounds, further enhancing its appeal for families. Competitors include SUVs like the Chevrolet Traverse, Toyota Highlander, Nissan Pathfinder and Ford Explorer.
Large Family vehicles seat six or more occupants in three rows.
Towing vehicles can tow a minimum of 2,000 pounds (see specifications for maximum). May require specific trim level and/or optional features.
