It is expected to churn out an impressive 224KW/300hp and a torque of 260 lb-ft. The Pilot will be available in a choice of a front wheel or an all-wheel drive and automatic stop/start. This will enable the big vehicle to handle itself well on the turns and on low traction surfaces. It is not a serious off roader but the new upgrades will make it handy on low traction areas.
