Which Honda Pilot Has Remote Start?

July 9th, 2022 by

On the hunt for a stylish and highly capable new SUV that comes with a remote start function? If so, our Roush Honda dealership serving Columbus area auto shoppers is proud to offer the new Honda Pilot, which is manufactured in several different trim levels, some of which offer remote start. Here’s which ones:

2022 Honda Pilot

Remote Engine Start is standard on all five trim levels of the 2022 Honda Pilot: EX-L, Special Edition, Touring, Elite, and Black Edition. So that means every new Honda Pilot is a great choice, especially if you want to warm up your vehicle in the winter or cool it off in the summer prior to getting in it.

2021 Honda Pilot

For 2021, there six different trim levels, the LX, EX, EX-L, Special Edition, Touring, and the Elite. With the exception of the base model LX, remote engine start comes standard.

How Does Remote Start Work?

The remote start feature found in the Honda Pilot is designed to start the engine while you are away from the vehicle without having to push the ignition start button. On models equipped with a Tri-Zone Automatic Climate Control System with Humidity Control and Air Filtration, the remote start system can automatically operate the air conditioning and heating based on the outside temperature in the Columbus area and bring your vehicle to a comfortable 72 degrees entirely on its own. For your convenience, the remote start system can be activated from a range of up to 400 feet.

How To Use The Remote Start Feature?

  • Begin by pressing the “Lock” button on your key fob, then press and hold the “Engine” button within 5 seconds to remotely start your Honda Pilot’s engine.
  • Once the engine has been engaged, it will run for up to 10 minutes before promptly turning off to conserve fuel while idling. If you wish to extend the run time for another 10 minutes, however, you may repeat the procedure during the initial 10 minutes, providing you with an additional 10 minutes of running time.
  • Note: While the engine is running, the climate control system adjusts the cabin temperature, the security system remains on, and lights and accessories remain off.
