2016 Honda Pilot Coming Soon to Virginia

No Matter What You Throw at It, the Pilot Will be Ready

The 2016 Honda Pilot coming soon to Virginia has got a few new features up its sleeve that might just make it the perfect SUV for you. Come in to your Virginia Honda dealer, Pohanka Honda of Fredericksburg for more information.


You might not think of an SUV as a very fuel efficient vehicle, but that is all about to change. Not only is the Pilot lighter by about 300 lbs. but it is also full of new technology. Honda has cranked it up a notch and created an engine that will allow you to save money while you drive.

The 3.5L, direct-injection i-VTEC® V6 engine comes with Variable Cylinder Management, which is a cylinder deactivation technology. This technology allows for Idle Stop Technology, which helps to save you fuel by shutting off the engine when the Pilot comes to a complete stop. Then, once the brake is released, the engine revs back to life smoothly and easily so you can be on your way.


The 2016 Honda Pilot coming soon to Virginia comes with a great collection of both active safety features as well as driver assistant features. Safety is important and it starts at its core with the Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure. The Pilot is built to absorb and disperse impact energy away from passengers and protect inside with standard dual-stage, multiple-threshold front and side curtain airbags with Smart Vent™.

The active safety features are built in to help keep the Pilot on the road and heading in the right direction. To help keep you in control by adjusting power and brakes on different wheels is Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control1. Hill Start Assist will help keep you from rolling in reverse if you need to start the Pilot on an incline. Finally, ABS with Brake Assist will help to make sure you stop when you mean to.

In terms of driving assistant aids, the Honda Pilot makes sure you are covered at all angles. To help you see behind while you are reversing, the 2016 Pilot comes with multi-angle rearview camera2 and Rear-cross Traffic monitor. To help you safely change lanes, you can use the Blind Spot Indicator and Honda LaneWatch™3. The Pilot even comes with Forward Collision Warning to let you know if it senses a potential forward collision.


When you shop for a new SUV you always want to make sure it is up for whatever your family throws at it. The 2016 Honda Pilot is able to configure to your needs, so you can easily use it for long family road trips, every day commutes, or a large weekend project. With fold flat rear seats, you can find a way to fit passengers as well as cargo.

To help keep everyone entertained on a longer trip, the 2016 Pilot comes with an optional eight-inch Display Audio telematics interface powered by Android media hub for the front passengers and an optional nine-inch rear entertainment system with DVD and Blu-ray player for rear passengers. There are even five USB ports throughout the Pilot to stream music from a mobile device – four of the USB ports can be used to charge devices.

No matter what you need out of a new SUV, the 2016 Honda Pilot coming soon to Virginia is up for the challenge. Coming this summer to your local Honda dealer. Be sure to be one of the first for a test drive.
