What's New for the 2023 Honda Pilot?

With the debut of its fourth generation, the Honda Pilot gets a complete overhaul to juice up its powertrain, add tech features, grow in size, and further enhance its safety presence. It's always worth the drive from San Diego or another North County location to get a look at this new SUV at our Honda dealer in Poway.

Key Updates for the 2023 Honda Pilot

  • Take on North County Trails in the New TrailSport: For Poway families planning bold adventures, the all-new Honda Pilot TrailSport is here to accommodate. The Honda Pilot is now more off-road-friendly, thanks to this brand-new trim's unique features, including skid plates, all-terrain tires, the upgraded i-VTM4® AWD system, a lifted suspension, and 40 percent torque boost from a stronger rear differential. The TrailSport can even be coated in Diffused Sky Blue.
  • Growing in Size: With an additional 3.4 inches in length, the Honda Pilot's wheelbase grows, also expanding interior room to 87 cubic feet of cargo space.
  • Safety Upgrades: The Honda Pilot gives its Lane Keeping Assist System and Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow more natural responses, providing Poway drivers with an easier time in North County traffic along Interstate 15. Have a family day planned in San Diego? New safety features include Traffic Sign Recognition and Traffic Jam Assist, both taking stress out of San Diego traffic.
  • Changes Under the Honda Pilot's Hood: The Honda Pilot welcomes an all-new chassis and swaps out a 9-speed for a 10-speed automatic transmission. This is paired with the SUV's 3.5-liter V6 engine, which jumps by five horsepower to output 285 ponies.
  • Additional Technology Joins the Honda Pilot: Explorations around North County are easier with the Honda Pilot's new TrailWatch™ camera. The all-new multi-view camera system provides Poway Honda Pilot owners with additional views. The wireless phone charger is updated for faster charging, while wireless Apple CarPlay®/Android Auto™ compatibility joins this Honda SUV's tech lineup.

Exterior Design

Choose between various 20-inch wheels for your Honda Pilot to ride on traveling to San Diego or Lake Poway. Standard LED headlights illuminate Poway streets in "The City in the Country." Standard roof rails give Poway families options to store gear up top on North County adventures. A hands-free power tailgate gives Poway drivers easier access to the storage area while loading and unloading.

Interior Design

Up to eight passengers fit in the three-row Honda Pilot, but a first-in-class multi-function removable middle seat can be placed inside the rear cargo floor. Configure cargo space between 19 and 87 cubic feet. Add Tri-Zone Automatic Climate Control, a panoramic moonroof, and a leather-trimmed interior for more comfortable rides to Old Poway Park or San Diego.


Paired with a new 10-speed automatic transmission, the Honda Pilot's 3.5-liter V6 engine now produces 285 horsepower and helps Poway families tow 5,000 pounds around North County. For more challenging SoCal terrain around North County, upgrade to the available i-VTM4® AWD System.
