The largest and most powerful SUV in Honda history, the all-new 2023 Honda Pilot is the ultimate family SUV with rugged new styling, more passenger and cargo space, and a top-of-class combination of off-road capability and sporty on-road dynamics.
The new Pilot TrailSport is the most off-road capable Honda SUV ever, engineered to get weekend adventurers even further off the beaten path with special off-road features including a raised off-road tuned suspension, all-terrain tires, steel skid plates and expanded all-wheel drive system capabilities. This fourth-generation Pilot goes on sale this winter in five trim levels: Sport, EX-L, TrailSport, Touring and a Canadian-exclusive Black Edition.
"The Honda Pilot has been popular with Canadian families for decades, and this all-new Pilot and Pilot TrailSport have been further refined offering more space and comfort while substantially increasing their toughness and off-road capabilities," says Steve Hui, Assistant Vice President Honda Canada. "The new Pilot can comfortably take your entire family and their gear on any road trip, whether it's to the city or on a rugged weekend adventure."
Pilot now belongs on the trail with all-new rugged styling that complements its trail-ready capability. The tough and aspirational design features a large upright grille and a powerful stance accentuated by flared fenders, wider tracks and larger tires. Under its new longer hood is Honda's most powerful V6 ever, an all-new dual overhead cam (DOHC) 3.5-litre engine producing 285 horsepower.
Inside, Pilot's all-new interior makes it the new flexible king of the carpool lane with unmatched comfort, versatile seating with an available removable 2nd row seat that can be conveniently stowed under the rear cargo floor. Complementing the interior flexibility is the most passenger and cargo space in Pilot history, including a more comfortable third row. Pilot also boasts best-in-class overall passenger space and top-of-class cargo volume behind the third-row seats. The new modern interior is also more comfortable with new front Body Stabilizing Seats that reduce fatigue on long drives. Sophisticated materials, premium touches and must-have tech features create the most upscale Pilot ever.

New Tough-Looking Exterior
The all-new 4th-generation Pilot further advances the new rugged design direction of Honda light trucks with a tough new look and powerful stance. Complementing its off-road capabilities, Pilot's all-new styling is tough, aspirational and adventure-ready with a large, upright grille, a strong horizontal beltline and aggressively flared fenders. Pulled back A-pillars and long hood create a longer dash-to-axle ratio for a sportier profile.
A strong horizontal beltline highlights its increased overall length (+86mm longer), while a longer wheelbase and wider tracks give it a stronger, more aggressive presence. A sleek roof spoiler and new LED taillights make the 4th-generation Pilot instantly recognizable from the rear.
The Sport trim features gloss black trim and grille bar, a chrome exhaust garnish, standard black roof rails, front fog lights and Shark Grey 7-spoke 20-inch wheels. EX-L adds flash with chrome trim and grille bar and machined 5-spoke 18-inch alloy wheels.
