Honda Introduces a New Trim Level: 2015 Pilot SE

June 5th, 2014 by

HondaAs if the 2014 Honda Pilot weren’t good enough already, Honda has given drivers another option when looking for one of the most popular SUVs in Central Illinois. The 2015 Honda Pilot will have a new mid-range trim level available, the Pilot SE.

What sets the SE trim level apart from the rest? Let’s take a look!

Offering a New Middle Ground

With four trim levels, the 2014 Pilot has often had drivers struggling to decide between the EX and EX-L trim, and we can’t blame them. There are some nice features on the EX-L, but it’s easy to understand that some people are more interested in what the EX has to offer. Thankfully, Honda saw that middle ground and put a brand new trim level there.

In addition to including all of the features of the EX, the Pilot SE adds on

  • Unique alloy wheels
  • Honda’s DVD entertainment system
  • 115 volt power outlet in the center console
  • One-touch power moonroof

Of course, drivers can still enjoy all of the great standard amenities from the current model as well, including Bluetooth, a rearview camera, Honda’s infotainment system with touchscreen, and more.

The Pilot will still be powered by the same 250-hp 3.5L V6 engine that drivers have come to know and love, offering up 253 lb-ft of torque and available in both two-wheel and four-wheel drive at every trim level. Despite the impressive powertrain, drivers of the 2015 Honda Pilot 2WD will earn an EPA-estimated 25 mpg on the highway, and opting for the 2015 Pilot 4WD brings it down just a bit to 24 highway mpg*
