Honda Pilot MPG & Ratings

2023 Honda Pilot

The Honda Pilot mpg ratings show that this mid-size SUV can deliver strong fuel efficiency on Palm Springs streets as well as out on the highway. Along with good gas mileage, Honda Pilot drivers will also enjoy muscular V6 performance, a robust towing capacity, and a Honda Pilot gas tank size that will help you travel further between fuel-ups. Take a closer look at the Honda Pilot fuel economy and more in this guide from Honda of the Desert. Then, visit our dealership in Cathedral City to check out our new Pilot inventory!



Each configuration of the 2023 Honda Pilot is powered by a 3.5L V6 engine that generates a solid 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. In addition, each model offers the same Honda Pilot gas tank size with a 19.5-gallon capacity. The Honda Pilot mpg you can expect on Palm Desert-area roads will depend on whether your model is equipped with front-wheel drive (FWD) or the 2nd-Generation Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ (i-VTM4®) AWD System.
