Contributing to the 2019 Honda Pilot performance capabilities are its fuel economy returns. The V6 engine with 6-speed automatic transmission can reach an EPA-estimated 19/27 city/highway mpg*.

Touring models with the 9-speed automatic transmission see their city estimates increase to an EPA-estimated 20 mpg*. The Eco Assist™ System standard on all trims also helps to make the Honda Pilot one of the ideal full-size fuel-efficient SUVs in the Denville area.
