Next up on the list is the 2017 Honda Pilot EX. Like the base trim, it delivers an impressively powerful and capable performance. However, this SUV features the Intelligent Traction Management System for enhanced performance in certain weather and road conditions.
Those looking for a bit more luxury in their next SUV will love the 2017 Pilot EX for its extensive list of features and technologies. It adds a standard tri-zone automatic climate control system and a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar support for comfort.

For even more luxury, the 2017 Honda EX-L adds a power tailgate, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, and heated front seats. The trim comes with a leather-trimmed interior and an available navigation system, too.
Entertainment is also available to passengers in the back seats, thanks to its rear entertainment system. This includes a 115-volt power outlet, an HDMI® interface, and integrated second-row sun shades to keep the glare off the screen.
The same engine, drivetrain, and performance features seen in the EX are offered for the Honda Pilot EX-L, as well.
