2023/2024 Honda Pilot Trailsport - A SUV worth buying

  Although the 2024s have been out for some time Honda has kept this 2023 Pilot TrailSport in the media fleet. Honda says the two years are virtually the same. I think the Pilot is a handsome vehicle, maybe a bit similar to many other SUVs of this size (or they are similar to the Pilot) but you still know it is a Honda. I'm not keen on the "Diffused Sky Blue Pearl" paint color (a $455 option) but that's just me.  There is only one engine available for the Pilot, a lively 3.5-liter, DOHC V6. It makes 285 hp @ 6,100 rpm, and 262 lb-ft of torque @ 5,000 rpm. Power goes through a 10-speed automatic transmission. Most models are FWD with AWD optional, the TrailSport and Elite are only available with AWD.  I have to say more about the engine. I know Honda makes more powerful engines (the Civic Type R) but this V6 is so sweet. I just love the sounds it makes and the way the power comes on, the throttle is so responsive. It moves the almost 4,700 lb. Trailsport from 0-60 mph
