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…
Here’s a few of her features:
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.
