2020 Pilot vs. Odyssey: Performance Capabilities
When it comes to delivering powerful performance, the Pilot and Odyssey demonstrate almost identical fuel economy performances with the same 280-hp 3.5L Direct-Injected i-VTEC® V6 engine under the hood. However, despite similar engine configurations, the Odyssey comes with a 10-speed automatic transmission with Shift-By-Wire (SBW) and Paddle Shifters across all trim levels, while the Honda Pilot SUV can be equipped with a 6-speed automatic transmission (6AT). Pilot drivers can also opt for a 9-speed automatic transmission (9AT) with Shift-By-Wire (SBW) and Paddle Shifters if they choose the Pilot Touring trim or above. In addition, the Pilot lineup also offers drivers the choice to upgrade their 2WD drivetrain to Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ All-Wheel Drive (AWD).
