The 2021 Honda Pilot is a major player in the midsize 3-row crossover-SUV scene.
There are many things in the 2021 Pilot’s favor. The cabin is roomy and versatile, able to seat up to eight occupants (depending on trim level) or provide up to 109.2 cubic feet of the cargo area. Although most buyers probably won’t venture too far into the wilderness, the Pilot has more than a smattering of off-road talent. Factor in the comfortable ride, strong-yet-refined V6 engine, plus enviable resale values, and recommending the 2021 Pilot becomes an easy decision.
A dirt road should also present no problems. The Pilot’s all-wheel-drive system brings extra off-road talent, thanks to selectable terrain modes (Snow, Mud, Sand). A Pilot with this hardware can negotiate rocks, crawl up a nearly 30-degree incline, and tackle sand. Up to 70 percent of power can go to the rear wheels.
