Does the Honda Pilot have AWD?

March 5th, 2019 by

2019 Honda Pilot in Red on the RoadWith all the Honda SUVs to choose from, drivers may be wondering, “Does the Honda Pilot have AWD?” The answer is yes! You can find all-wheel drive available on most models, though front-wheel drive is standard. If you find yourself battling tough road conditions in Madison, or wanting to leave the pavement for trails less traveled, then the new 2019 Honda Pilot AWD models can take you there.

Honda Pilot AWD Models

The Honda Pilot comes in five trim levels for Brandon drivers to choose from. You can opt for the available AWD system on the LX, EX, EX-L, or Touring models to increase your traction and control, or find the AWD system standard on the Elite trim.

Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ (i-VTM4™) AWD

The Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ AWD system gives drivers a unique advantage by sensing the amount of torque you need in each of your wheel axles and adjusting accordingly. This can help enhance driving in both low-traction or dry conditions by:

  • Allowing variable front-to-rear distribution of engine torque to send power to the wheels in need of traction.
  • This system also allows the clutches to activate separately allowing for variable amounts of torque to be distributed to each rear wheel independently.

This design allows the system to precisely meet traction needs and enhance stability in conditions such as ice and snow.

Honda Pilot Performance Features

Not relying on just AWD, the 2019 Honda Pilot AWD models have even more performance features to improve your Jackson driving:

  • Hill Start Assist
  • Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control
  • Brake Assist
  • Blind Spot Monitoring System (BSI) with Cross Traffic Monitor
  • Honda Sensing® safety suite and driver assist technologies
