The 2015 Pilot EX vs. the Pilot EX-L

August 7th, 2014 by

HondaThe 2015 Honda Pilot just hit the showrooms at Tri-State Honda Dealers, and even if you’ve already decided on the brand new Honda Pilot, there are quite a few other choices to be made. We’ve had drivers asking us about which they should choose in the 2015 Honda Pilot EX vs the 2015 Pilot EX-L. We break down the features for you and offer a compromise.

The EX Trim

Like every Pilot, the EX comes with a 3.5L V6 with 250 hp and your choice of two- or four-wheel drive as well as some of the best standard features in its class—Bluetooth, a touchscreen infotainment system, a rearview camera, and more—while adding on the following:

  • 18-inch alloy wheels
  • HomeLink remote system
  • 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat
  • Security system with remote entry

It’s a step up in technology features over the basic LX trim level.

The Pilot EX-L

The EX-L takes everything from the EX and adds on

  • Leather-trimmed interior
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Heated front seating
  • 4-way power adjustable front passenger seat
  • Automatic dimming rearview mirror

Basically, the EX-L offers drivers luxury and technology in one convenient place, and you can add on the DVD rear seat entertainment system or Honda’s satellite-linked navigation system.

Other Pilot Choices

The 2015 Pilot SE s brand new for 2015 and splits the difference between the EX and EX-L trim levels, coming with all of the features of the EX while adding on unique alloy wheels, a rear seat DVD entertainment system, a one-touch power moonroof, Special Edition badging, and more.

Don’t forget about the well-equipped entry-level Pilot LX and the stunning top-of-the-line Touring trim level.

Test Drive a Pilot

With five trims to choose from, it can be tough to figure out which Pilot is right for you without a test drive. Visit a Tri-State Honda Dealer near you to take a look at our available Honda Pilot models; we think there’s a Pilot for practically every driver.

Tri-State Honda Dealers includes Bill Cole Honda, Freedom Honda, Glockner Honda, Larry Simmons Honda, Lester Raines Honda, Moses Honda, and Taylor Honda.
