The 2023 Honda Pilot will Start at $50,650 in Canada

The 2023 Honda Pilot will be more expensive than before in Canada, but it comes with more standard equipment.

  • The new Pilot will be offered in five trim levels.

  • Every new Pilot comes with an expanded suite of driver assistance features and a revised AWD system.

  • Sales will begin in Canada on December 12.

Honda Canada announced the pricing and equipment information for the new 2023 Pilot, which will arrive on sale on December 12.

Starting at $50,650 in entry-level Sport trim, the 2023 Pilot is about $4,000 more expensive than the model it replaces.

To justify this extra cost, Honda gave the 2023 Pilot a new 3.5L V6 engine that makes its debut in this model. Paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission, this engine develops the same amount of torque and only five more horsepower than last year’s 3.5L V6 engine, at 285 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque.

Also standard in every version is the second-generation i-VTM4 torque-vectoring all-wheel drive system that is now 30% more reactive and 40% more robust than before.

The Honda Sensing suite of driver assistance technologies has also been updated to include adaptive cruise control, Lane Keeping Assist, and Traffic Jam Assist on every model.

The entry-level Pilot Sport comes equipped with features such as a power tailgate, heated front seats, a 7-inch screen for the infotainment system which includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, grey 20-inch alloy wheels, a tri-zone climate control system, LED headlamps and a semi-digital instrument cluster.

The EX-L adds leather upholstery, a Qi charging mat, 18-inch alloy wheels, a 9-speaker audio system, a 9-inch touchscreen, the wireless integration of both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as chrome trim on the outside, for a price of $54,450.

For a more rugged appearance and improved off-road capabilities, the $57,450 Pilot TrailSport comes with a revised suspension that sits 25 millimetres higher off the ground, underbody skid plates, a modified AWD system, and exclusive 18-inch wheels that wear all-terrain tires. Inside, this model features a standard panoramic sunroof and it distinguishes itself from other Pilot models with orange stitching throughout the interior.

An available HPD (Honda Performance Development) package also adds 20-inch matte black wheels, side skid plates, fender flares, and decals for an even more adventurous appearance.

Stepping up to the Touring model for a price of $61,350 adds ventilated front seats, a 10.2-inch fully digital instrument panel, a head-up display, a 360-degree camera system, a 12-speaker Bose audio system, a factory navigation system, and a WIFI hotspot. The Pilot Touring is also equipped with a removable middle seat in the second row that can accommodate an 8th passenger.

At the top of the Pilot lineup in 2023 is the $62,850 Black Edition which features all of the same equipment as the Touring and replaces the exterior brightwork with gloss black accents, such as on the grille and the B pillar. The Touring’s 20-inch machined alloy wheels are also replaced with gloss black versions of the same design.
