2022 Honda Pilot for Sale in West Springfield, MA
One of the auto industry’s most appreciated three-row crossovers, the Honda Pilot, returns for model year 2022. For nearly two decades, the Pilot has been serving families and individuals alike as a practical, spacious, and thoughtfully equipped vehicle. For the upcoming model year, Honda has increased the standard equipment list, with the base infotainment system now getting a standard 8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto; LED headlights are also included on every trim. On that note, the LX and EX trim levels have been dropped, making the EX-L the new entry-level option. Other than that, the ’22 Pilot still the same comfortable, powerful, and adventure-ready hauler that drivers look for year after year.
Trims, Powertrain, and Fuel Economy
The trim lineup of the ’22 Pilot consists of the EX-L, Special Edition, Touring, Elite, and Black Edition. Their powertrain is a 3.5-liter V6 engine (280 hp and 262 lb.-ft. of torque) with a nine-speed automatic gearbox. Front-wheel drive is the default in the EX-L, Special Edition, and Touring, but all-wheel drive (which is standard in the Elite and Black Edition) is available. For a midsized crossover, the ’22 Pilot is quite fuel efficient, with FWD versions rated for an EPA-estimated 20 mpg around town and 27 mpg on the open road. Even with AWD, the Pilot returns a commendable 19 city/26 highway. The ’22 Pilot’s towing capacity is dependent on the drivetrain: FWD models can tow up to 3,500 pounds and AWD versions can pull a maximum of 5,000 lb.
While the ’22 Pilot is for anyone who wants comfort, space, and reliability, it’s especially sought after by families – especially those who take extended road trips or have kids who play sports. In the EX-L, the standard features include automatic low-beam LED headlights, LED fog lights, rear privacy glass, and heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, position memory, and reverse tilt-down capability. The roof is decked out with silver roof rails and a moonroof, and a power liftgate and keyless entry with auto- lock add convenience. The interior is also well decked out with push-button ignition, tri-zone automatic climate control, HondaLink remote services, a rearview camera with dynamic guidelines, 12-volt power outlets, USB ports, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a universal garage door opener, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, second-row sunshades, rear-seat heat and AC ducts, and a hidden storage compartment. The front seats are heated and power-adjustable (the driver’s seat has position memory), and all seats are leather-upholstered. The second-row seats have a one-touch fold-down function, and the third-row splits 60/40. This trim also has CabinControl, which lets passengers manipulate several basic features via their smartphones.
The Special Edition gets black roof rails, a hands-free liftgate, and a wireless smartphone charger. The Touring drops the wireless smartphone charger, returns the silver roof rails, and adds chrome door handles, front and rear parking sensors, full LED headlights, blue ambient interior lighting, HondaLink subscription services, an in-car PA system (CabinTalk), a rear-seat Blu-Ray entertainment system with a 10.2-inch screen, a second-row HDMI interface, a 115-volt power outlet, and illuminated beverage holders; heated and perforated second-row captain’s chairs are available. The Elite receives the captain’s chairs and wireless charger, along with rain-sensing windshield wipers, power-folding side mirrors, a panoramic moonroof, front-row LED map lights, a heated steering wheel, and ventilated front seats. The Black Edition is similar to the Elite, but it returns the black roof rails and has gloss-black door handles and red ambient interior lighting.

All ’22 Pilots have the Honda Sensing suite, which contains these advanced technologies: forward collision warning, collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, and lane departure warning. Also standard are blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert and automatic high beams.
Staying informed and connected can be crucial on the road, and the Pilot is ready with a well-stocked infotainment system. The L and Special Edition get an 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, a seven-speaker sound system, an auxiliary input jack, SiriusXM satellite radio, and HD radio.
