2019 Honda Pilot is a North Carolina Family Favorite

Our automaker's flagship mid-size SUV, the largest in the Honda crossover lineup, comes equipped for the long haul out of the Morganton area, whether that's a long-awaited trip or just a weekend getaway somewhere out of the way. Take a virtual tour with the pros here on Burkemont Avenue, and you'll see what it can bring to your excursion.

For one, the new Honda Pilot is a powerhouse, home to a 280-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine shelling 262 pound-feet of torque as well as host to available Intelligent Variable Torque Management (i-VTM4) all-wheel drive, 7.3 inches of towering ground clearance, and optional Intelligent Traction Management with modes for snow, sand, and mud. That means capability for anything Mother Nature can send its way. However, Pilot is also highly efficient. Its Eco Assist&#trade; System, for instance, can activate components as necessary, giving real-time fuel use feedback and encouraging more efficient driving. Variable Cylinder Management&#trade; (VCM®), on the other hand, helps make the most of fuel depending on driving conditions. Finally, options like a nine-speed auto transmission option employ shift-by-wire to make gear changes as easy as the touch of a button.

Further, every new Pilot is loaded with amenities, with three rows for seven to eight passengers, for starters, in your choice of cloth, leather-trimmed, or perforated upholstery. Seats come optionally heated and ventilated in front as well as available heated in back, and you can look forward to perforated, heated second-row captain's chairs for your fellow riders in select trims. Moreover, the second row and a 60/40-split third-row bench seat fold easily, providing access to cargo space galore that you can access in a snap via an optional power tailgate. Factor in an available 8-inch infotainment system with smartphone perks like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, an available rear-seat 10.2-inch Blu-ray Player entertainment system, and optional 590-watt, 10-speaker premium multi-zone audio, and everyone can stay entertained for the ride.

There's even more to Honda Pilot where these exciting advancements on the competition came from. You can learn more about it right here on the Morganton Honda website. Then, when that favorite model's caught your eye, and you'd like to take a spin, feel free to contact us to schedule a test drive here on Burkemont Avenue. And bring the whole gang along -- we're just a short drive from over in Hickory or Granite Falls, up in Lenoir, and out in Marion. We look forward to showing you around!
