Does the Honda Pilot Have AWD?

2021 Honda Pilot on the Beach
The new Honda Pilot delivers powerful performance thanks to its robust V6 engine and smooth-shifting 9-speed automatic transmission. But if you’re like most Culver City-area SUV enthusiasts you may be wondering, “Does the Honda Pilot have AWD?” The Honda Pilot comes standard with two-wheel drive, but you have the option to upgrade to the Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ All-Wheel Drive (AWD) System, which provides enhanced traction and control no matter the weather and road conditions. Learn more about the Honda Pilot AWD system before you schedule a test drive at our dealership in Los Angeles.

Honda Pilot AWD Models

There are seven Honda Pilot trim levels from which to choose:

  • Honda Pilot LX
  • Honda Pilot EX
  • Honda Pilot EX-L
  • Honda Pilot Special Edition
  • Honda Pilot Touring
  • Honda Pilot Elite
  • Honda Pilot Black Edition

The Honda Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ (i-VTM4®) AWD System is standard with the Honda Pilot Elite and Black Edition and is available on all other trims.

How Does the Honda Pilot AWD System Work?

The Honda Pilot AWD system automatically senses how much torque each wheel axle needs and will continuously adjust distribution to provide maximum traction when and where it’s needed most. The system also allows the clutch to activate separately so that the torque is distributed to each rear wheel independently. This helps to maintain control and safe braking when driving in wet or slippery road conditions in Torrance.
