Find the 2022 Honda Pilot That’s Right for You

2022 Pilot

Available in five trims, EX-L, SE, Touring, Elite, Black Edition, the new 2022 Honda Pilot gets more standard features and a new exterior paint option, Sonic Gray Pearl. No matter which option of Honda Pilot you choose, you get to enjoy a roomy interior, durable performance and more value when it comes time to sell or trade-in. Dublin Honda is here to help you decide which trim is best for your driving needs and your family’s comfort and entertainment.

Every new 2022 Honda Pilot now comes with LED headlights and a larger 8-inch multimedia touchscreen with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. A 3.5-liter V6 with 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque pairs with a 9-speed automatic transmission to power all 2022 Pilot models. Intelligent Traction Management with Snow mode is standard across all Pilot trims, AWD models add Mud and Sand drive modes. FWD is standard on the lower trims, with AWD available for an extra cost. AWD does come standard on the Pilot Elite and Black Edition.

2022 Honda Pilot EX-L

The 2022 Honda Pilot lost its two base trims from 2021, the LX and EX, and now has a more premium base model, the Pilot EX-L. For the 2022 model year, you now get standard:

  • Leather-trimmed seats
  • Power tailgate
  • Power moonroof
  • Heated front seats
  • Tri-zone automatic climate control
  • 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with memory
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • 18-inch alloy wheels

2022 Honda Pilot Special Edition

Debuting in 2021, the 2022 Pilot Special Edition (SE) adds a hands-free power tailgate, roof rails, a wireless charger and gets 20-inch wheels. The wheels on the Pilot SE are unique to the trim with black alloy and all-season tires.

2022 Honda Pilot Touring

Building upon the 2022 Honda Pilot SE, the 2022 Pilot Touring adds a rear seat entertainment system, featuring a 10.2-inch screen with a Blu-Ray player, two pairs of wireless headsets and streaming capability. Ideal if you have restless kiddos in the back seat. Use the standard CabinTalk® like an in-car PA system to talk to those all the way in the third row without raising your voice. The Touring model opens up the option for 2nd-row captain’s chairs, reducing seating from eight to seven, albeit with more comfort. You do lose the wireless charger, though. In addition, the new Honda Pilot Touring gets:

  • Wi-Fi capability
  • Heated 2nd-row seats
  • 10-speaker premium audio system
  • USB ports in all three rows
  • Multi-zone audio
  • Parking sensors

2022 Honda Pilot Elite

The 2022 Pilot Elite features standard all-wheel-drive and heated 2nd-row captain’s chairs, plus premium perforated leather on top of all of the Pilot Elite features. The wireless charger is back, along with:

  • Heated steering wheel
  • Heated and ventilated front seats
  • Rain-sensing wipers
  • Panoramic sunroof with moonroof
  • Power-folding outboard mirrors with auto-dimming

2022 Honda Pilot Black Edition

For those who want black-on-black, the 2022 Pilot Black Edition gets most of the same features as the 2022 Honda Pilot Elite but with all-black accents. There is a black-chrome front grille bar, rear bumper, window surrounds and black body-colored door handles and mirrors. Inside, set the mood with red ambient lighting and a leather-trimmed interior with striking red stitching and Black Edition logos embossed into the seats. 

For 2022, you really can’t go wrong in whichever Pilot model you choose. Every new Honda Pilot has leather trim, heated seats, improved infotainment, and reliable, smooth performance. Families might prefer the amenities in the Honda Pilot Touring trim and above – the rear entertainment system can be a lifesaver on long car trips. And for those who want to do family hauling in style, the Black Edition offers a sleek look with luxurious extras. 

At Dublin Honda, we think you will love the new 2022 Honda Pilot for its engaging drive, responsive steering and advanced safety features. Honda Sensing® comes standard and includes Blind Spot Monitor, Collision Mitigation Braking, Road Departure Mitigation, Adaptive Cruise Control and more.
