What’s the Benefit?
Pilot’s remote engine-start feature raises the comfort and convenience of this vehicle to a luxurious plateau.
Imagine being able to start your Pilot before you get in, so it’ll already be cooled off inside on a hot day—or warmed up and defrosted on a cold one. That’s the idea behind the standard remote engine-start feature on Pilot EX and above trims.
It works when you’re within about 100 feet of the vehicle.
Just push the button on the remote—the starter will fire up the engine, and the automatic climate control system will begin conditioning the interior to a temperature of 72º F.
On days when it’s below 40º F outside, it will even engage the heated seats and steering wheel, if equipped, to prepare for your entry.
