Technology Features for Enhanced Honda Pilot Fuel Economy 

What’s behind the stellar Honda Pilot MPG? A variety of advanced technology systems work throughout the vehicle to optimize fuel use. Here are just a few of the standard technologies the Pilot uses to stay efficient:

  • Eco Assist™ System — Eco Assist™ employs a Driver Feedback System to inform the driver of fuel use status in real time, helping you to develop more efficient driving habits. The system also offers an ECON driving mode, which changes or limits some energy-consuming operations to improve fuel economy.
  • Intelligent Traction Management and Intelligent Variable Torque Management All-Wheel Drive — Intelligent AWD monitors driving conditions and sends power just to the wheels that need it. When conditions are good, it automatically limits power to the front axle to save fuel.
  • HondaLink — This system keeps you connected to important resources while you drive, from nearby certified Honda service centers and gas stations to your vehicle’s regular service schedule.
