Honda Pilot Middletown HondaWith the 2014 Honda Pilot, you don’t have to compromise efficiency for size. This smartly-sized SUV has seating for eight and ample cargo room while still using a minimum amount of gas. That makes travel, errands, and commuting reasonable even if you want or need a lot of space. Honda has a reputation for boosting efficiency with clever engineering and new technologies, and when you start to dive into the 2014 Honda pilot mpg, its clear they have done it again.

The Engine Blends Power and Efficiency

The 2014 Honda Pilot has a 3.5L V6 under the hood that can produce 250 hp and 253 lb-ft of torque. That is plenty of power if you are towing or hauling a heavy load or driving on a steep incline, but you can still count on getting 18 mpg city and 25 mpg on the highway with front-wheel drive on and 17 mpg city and 24 mpg highway with all-wheel drive when you choose the 2014 Honda Pilot.*

New Powertrain Technologies Help Conserve Fuel

Honda pioneered i-VTEC cylinder management technology more than 30 years ago, but they continue to refine it in exciting new ways. The 2014 Honda Pilot comes with a Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) system. The principle behind it is basically that the engine needs less power at cruising speeds, so why run all the cylinders? The system can detect current power needs and then activate three, four, or six cylinders as needed. Its like having a smaller engine when you want it, and a larger engine when you need it.

The Pilot Teaches You to Drive Efficiently

Every Pilot comes with an 8-inch multi-information display that provides you with essential information about your vehicle, including data about fuel consumption. With this technology at your fingertips, it is easy to understand how much gas you are using now and in the past, so you can start driving more efficiently. Thanks to the easy-to-understand display, it’s not hard to make subtle but effective changes to your driving behavior.
