The Honda Pilot is a very popular SUV, so when a new generation is released people will pay attention to it. The year 2023 marks the fourth generation of the big man hauler, and now we have the final piece of the puzzle: Price. And there is good news for buyers, as prices have only increased slightly compared to the previous generation.
The cheapest 2023 Honda Pilot starts at $40,445. That gets you a Pilot Sport with front-wheel drive, and it’s a $1,070 increase over the outgoing Pilot Sport. Adding all-wheel drive raises the starting price to $42,545. All prices listed here include Honda’s $1,295 destination fee.
On the other end of the spectrum, the 2023 Honda Pilot Elite serves as the flagship SUV with a starting price of $53,325. It’s a modest $1,660 upgrade over the 2022 model and $160 more than the 2022 Pilot Black Edition, which may or may not appear for the new generation.

The entry-level Pilot Sport offers a 285-horsepower (213-kilowatt) 3.5-liter V6, sending power to the front wheels via a 10-speed automatic transmission. A 7-inch infotainment screen with Apple CarPlay / Android Auto functionality, heated front seats and 20-inch wheels are also standard on the lowest-level Pilot. Honda’s driver assistance suite (Honda Sensing) is standard on every model, bringing features such as adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assistance and traffic sign recognition to the SUV.
The biggest news from the new Pilot is probably the TrailSport trim. Injecting some toughness into the Pilot formula, the TrailSport is more off-road focused with extra ground clearance, retuned suspension, skid plates and all-terrain tires on exclusive 18-inch trim wheels.
The 2023 Honda Pilot will hit dealerships in December.
