Honda Pilot 0-60 times

Out of all performance specs, nothing but Honda Pilot 0-60 times can better speak about the vehicle's temper. While horsepower and torque blow smoke in the eyes, Pilot zero to sixty specs and average time to run a quarter mile are pretty straightforward metrics allowing to compare against its competitors.

Very often there is no chance of doing Pilot 0-to-60 test personally and making conclusions from the experience of the other drivers is the last thing you want.

Conducting a trustworthy test drive requires following a strict methodology that is intended to eliminate the inconsistent circumstances like weather, tires, surface, engine temperature. It is always better to leave it for professionals.


Increase Horsepower

The cold air part is also important in making more power. Cold air is denser and contains more oxygen molecules than warm air does. So if you can get cooler air into your Honda Pilot engine, your car will be able to mix more fuel with that air, making more power. Combine that with the more air through the larger and less restrictive filter and intake tube and you can see up to a 15-20 horsepower increase. K&N has even reported an estimated increase of 56.96 horsepower out of the 57-2571 intake for 2007-2009 Shelby GT500!

The Honda Pilot is a three-row mid-size crossover SUV that features a 3.5-liter, 280-horsepower, V6. All the power is channeled to the front or all four wheels via a 6-speed-automatic transmission. The upper-class Elite and Touring trims feature a 9-speed-automatic. The AWD system comes with torque vectoring which improves handling capabilities and provides modes for driving through mud, snow, and sand.

Honda also combines utility, safety, and style to give consumers a stress-free ride. The Pilot’s sheet metal saw a redesign last year. It’s now rounded and more organic. It blends well with the three-light side view and lower end. This produces a well-sculptured and elegant styling also seen in the Traverse, Rogue, and Santa Fe. The 2015 Honda Pilot had a plasticky and blocky design that wasn’t very appealing to the eye. The current model improves on its predecessor by including well-trimmed and finished materials.

The Pilot borrows a few design elements from the Accord and carries on the utility offered in the CR-V. The upper trims come with a larger touchscreen with the top-range models getting a glassy panel and panoramic roof. In all transmission options, the Pilot’s 262-pound-feet of torque and 280 horsepower can get the vehicle from 0 to 60 mph in 7 seconds. Consumers also get to listen to some soft engine noises from the 3.5-liter V6. The lower Pilots come with a 6-speed-automatic transmission that’s quite composed compared to the 9-speed automatic. It angles away at sweeping speed and doesn’t yank brusquely like the latter. The 9-speed transmissions found in the Elite and Touring also suffer from random jolting shifts. They can, however, double-downshift with two left-paddle clicks. They also hold gears longer. The Pilot has new dampers and springs that feature dual-path shocks. With the help of the multi-link rear controls and the strut front, these help to maintain body motions while providing an excellent ride on crusty road bumps. The handling is, however, looser when compared to that of rivaling SUVs such as the Buick Enclave. There’s also suspension noise and less control in wheel snap-back motions.

The steering is also light, offering drivers very little feel of what’s happening on the ground. The AWD system helps to split power between the rear wheels. This enables the Pilot to have more grip in mucky and wet conditions. The axles turn to apply pressure on one or both of the rear wheels when necessary. The system responds quite fast and has sharp reflexes. The Honda Pilot also comes with traction management, a system that allows drivers to select modes in order to handle snow, sand, normal or muddy rides. A 7.3-inch ground clearance improves on the all-weather capability. The Pilot can also tow up to 5,000 pounds.

The 2018 Honda Pilot is a family hauler that packs a spacious interior and is built strong enough to handle all forms of off-roading. There’s enough comfort and luxury for all eight passengers. The only downsides are the overly-sensitive safety features and the shifty 9-speed transmission. It, however, remains to be a top choice in its class.
