The Honda Pilot is a very popular SUV, so when a new generation is launched, people take notice. 2023 marks the fourth generation of the great people carrier, and now we have the final piece of the puzzle: pricing. And there’s good news for buyers, as prices have only increased slightly over the previous generation.
The cheapest 2023 Honda Pilot starts at $40,445. That gets you the Pilot Sport with front-wheel drive, and that’s a $1,070 increase over the outgoing Pilot Sport. Adding all-wheel drive bumps the starting price to $42,545. All prices listed here include Honda’s $1,295 destination charge.
On the other end of the spectrum, the 2023 Honda Pilot Elite serves as the flagship SUV with a starting price of $53,325. That’s a modest $1,660 increase over the 2022 model and $160 more than the 2022 Pilot Black Edition, which may or may not show up for the new generation.

The entry-level Pilot Sport offers a 285-hp (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 suite of driver aids (Honda Sensing) is standard on all models, bringing features like adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist and traffic sign recognition to the SUV.
The biggest novelty of the new Pilot could be the TrailSport version. Injecting a bit of toughness into the Pilot formula, TrailSport focuses more on all-terrain with added ground clearance, retuned suspension, skid plates and all-terrain tires on trim-exclusive 18-inch wheels. .
The 2023 Honda Pilot will arrive in dealerships in December.
