Most trims of this new Honda include a standard 7-inch digital instrument panel. This screen shows a digital tachometer on the lift and a physical speedometer on the right. This screen also gives you readings and functions to make it easy to set the Honda Sensing settings in the desired fashion.

If you stretch your money to the top-level Elite trim o the new 2023 Honda Pilot, you’ll have a configurable 10.2-inch digital instrument display. This screen also shows a multi-view camera feed and connects to the color head-up display, which is part of the Elite trim.

Are there any connectivity options for the 2023 Honda Pilot?

Yes, this SUV brings a new 7-inch touchscreen in the Sport trim, which offers the connectivity of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. All other trims include a 9-inch color touchscreen and upgrade your connectivity to wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

If your Pilot has the Honda navigation system, the latest version is faster than ever. It delivers lag-free performance and new simplified graphics and menus to make it easier to use while driving. You might notice the touchscreen is recessed from the dash. This is meant to give your fingers a place to rest while choosing the menus on the screen.

How are the USB ports configured in this three-row SUV?

The front dashboard area features a USB-A port and a USB-C port for charging and connectivity needs. Second-row passengers enjoy the use of two USB-A ports in all trim levels. If you step up only one rung on the trim ladder, you’ll find Qi-wireless charging up front. This change also brings two additional USB-A ports for the third-row passengers.

Does the 2023 Honda Pilot SUV offer a high-quality sound system?

If you want more than the basic sound system in this three-row SUV, you’ll need to step up to the Touring or Elite trims. This is where you’ll find an incredible 12-speaker Bose premium audio system. This new sound system offers Bose CenterPoint technology featuring a 15.7-liter capacity subwoofer box.
