Last Tuesday hubby and I decided it was time to trade in our 8 year old Honda Ridgeline and get a Honda Pilot Elite. This Honda has everything. All the whistles and bells. Technology on steroids. So here's what our new ride looks like. Meet the 2016 Honda Pilot Elite...
Power Tailgate - With the press of a button, the Pilot can automatically lower or raise the tailgate for hands-free access.
Panoramic Roof - Enjoy a more comprehensive view of Mother Nature.
LED Headlights - LED headlights help you see more of what's on the road while using less energy.
Rear Entertainment System - Pop in a DVD or Blu-ray™ disc to enjoy your favorite videos on a brilliant 9-inch screen.
8-Inch Display Audio Touch-Screen - Touch, pinch and swipe your way through music, podcasts and more.
Multi-Angle Rearview Camera - Get a better view of what's behind you with three different angles: normal, top-down and wide6.
Forward Collision Warning - Immediately alerts you if it senses you are at risk of a collision with a vehicle detected ahead of you.
Lane Departure Warning - Alerts you if you drift out of a detected lane without signaling.
Honda LaneWatch™ - Signal right and a small camera displays live video on your Display Audio screen to reveal nearly four times more than the passenger-side mirror alone.
Auto High-Beam Headlights - High-beam headlights automatically activate or engage when the system determines it’s appropriate.
Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Monitor - Sensors in the rear bumper alert you when approaching vehicles are detected.
9-Speed Automatic Transmission - A 9-speed automatic transmission provides an incredibly refined driving experience and helps improve fuel efficiency.
Intelligent Traction Management - Thanks to improved torque distribution, the all-new AWD system excels in low-traction conditions such as mud, snow or sand.
Idle-Stop - To further increase fuel efficiency, the Pilot can automatically turn off the engine when stopped. Lift your foot off the brake, and it starts right back up.
It's a solid and very quiet ride. We are planning on taking lots of trips this coming year and we'll do them in comfort. We love our new wheels.
