2008 Honda Pilot Review

Can gloating be considered a sport? Most of the pack of SUVs prowling the roads today are all heft with no hustle. Only the 2008 Honda Pilot is both strong enough to go the distance and cunning enough to lead the way. The distinctive exterior of the Pilot cuts the air with clean straightforward lines and this vehicle practically snarls with an advanced 3.5-liter 24-valve 244-hp V-6 engine. 2WD models offer Variable Cylinder Management for a more efficient ride. Ready steady go. The Variable Torque Management system on 4Wheel Drive Pilot models detects slippage and adjusts traction. The Pilot puts the safety philosophy in action and the proof is in the 5-star rating the vehicle earned in frontal- and side-impact testing. And a spacious interior bursting with luxurious extras like available Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System with voice recognition and the Honda DVD Entertainment System will find you looking for any excuse to invite others inside. Make no mistake the 2008 Honda Pilot is the real deal—whether you're eating dirt off-road or searching for sushi in town the Pilot is the right choice for you.
