  • Intelligent Variable Torque Management AWD System: Not only does this system boost the Pilot SUV’s towing capacity, it helps it tackle nearly any kind of driving surface Irvine can throw at you.
  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Guidelines: Use the handy rearview camera to snag the best parking spaces or hitch a trailer or camper.
