Overview

How Much Does a 2018 Honda Pilot Cost?

The Pilot is available in five trim levels: LX, EX, EX-L, Touring and Elite.

The base-level LX ($30,900) comes standard with 18-inch alloy wheels, three rows of flat-folding seats, a rearview camera, Bluetooth, a single USB port and a 7-speaker sound system.

Moving up to the EX ($33,300) adds an abundance of extra equipment: Automatic headlights, foglights, remote ignition, Honda's LaneWatch blind spot camera, 3-zone automatic climate control, an 8-way power driver seat, Honda's 8-in touchscreen interface, HondaLink smartphone apps, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, additional USB ports and an upgraded sound system.

Next up is the EX-L ($36,800), which adds a power lift gate, a sunroof, leather upholstery, heated front seats, a power passenger seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, an auto-dimming rearview mirror and 1-touch sliding rear seats.

The EX and EX-L can be equipped with the Honda Sensing package, which adds adaptive cruise control, a forward-collision warning system with automatic braking, lane-departure warning and lane-keep assist. The EX-L can also be equipped with either a navigation system or a rear entertainment system, but not both. The latter also includes second-row sunshades and a household-style power outlet.

Going for the pricey Touring ($42,000) adds the 9-speed automatic transmission, along with the EX-L's optional features, 20-in wheels, parking sensors, extra sound deadening, driver memory settings and a 10-speaker sound system.

Opt for the top-of-the-line Elite ($47,500) and you'll get LED headlights, automatic high beams, blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic warning systems, automatic wipers, a panoramic sunroof, heated and ventilated front seats, heated second-row captain's chairs that reduce overall capacity to seven people, a heated steering wheel and HD radio. Unlike all the other trims, it comes only with all-wheel drive.
