OK, I’m out here on Conimicut Point in Warwick, RI checking out the 2015 Honda Pilot Special Edition. The SE is a brand new model of the Pilot available this year. It lands between the mid-level EX model and the mega-loaded EXL model in the Honda Pilot lineup. At $4000 less than the EXL, it’s a great choice for you if you’re looking for an affordable but feature-packed SUV. It features a great trim package and awesome entertainment system! I’ll talk more about that later. First, here are the specs:
18” Alloy Wheels (And you know I love alloy wheels!)
Integrated Turn Signals
New Molded Trim
One-Touch Power Moonroof with Tilt Feature (Love this)
Tailgate with Lift-up Glass Hatch
Tri-Zone Automatic Climate Control System
HomeLink Remote System
Illuminated Steering Wheel Mounted Hands Free Controls (Super easy to use)
115 Volt Power Outlet in Center Console
3.5 Liter V-6
EPA 17 city, 24 highway, 20 combined
Sirius XM Radio
Bluetooth Streaming Audio
15 GB Audio Memory
Audio System with 7 Speakers, Including Subwoofer
Now, more about the entertainment system! It’s one of my favorite features of the Pilot Special Edition. The SE features the Honda DVD rear entertainment system. This back seat res system includes a drop-down 9” LCD screen complete with a remote control and two sets of wireless headphones. You can listen to XM Radio, stream music or watch a DVD, all from the back seat. And with 38.5 cubic inches of leg space, you’ll be comfortable while you do it!
During my test drive, I had an amazingly smooth and quiet ride, and I was impressed by how minimal the road noise was. My drive was so smooth and quiet it felt more like I was driving a car than a V-6 SUV! I felt nice and high up off the ground, the sound system was awesome, and it was all in all a great drive.
