Last week my family and I were on vacation in Sarasota, Florida and I noticed many dealers with 2016 Honda Pilots in stock. We ended up purchasing one and driving it back to Virginia. The cost of the 2016 Honda Pilot EX-L AWD was $32,855 plus tax, tags, and dealer doc fees - it had $500 in dealer add-ons thrown in (pin stripes, nitrogen, wheel well moldings). There was one dealer in particular that offered an extremely competitive price via email before we left for Florida, and we actually stopped by and test drove it when we visited their dealership, but they wouldn't budge on their very competitive price and were about $900 higher than the place where we ended up purchasing the vehicle. The dealer with the extremely competitive price that was provided via email still has that 2016 Honda Pilot EX-L AWD in black forest pearl available according to their web site. There was a third dealer, also with a 2016 Honda Pilot EX-L AWD in black forest pearl that wanted $1500 more, and when we got back to Virginia they had dropped their asking price a bit, but not by $1500. They also have their Pilot still listed on their website. Had we been in Florida at the end of April, and had the 2016 Pilot EX-L AWDs still been available, I think I could have bought one for even less than $32,855 plus tax, tags, and dealer doc fees. There were a few other Honda dealers on the east coast of Florida who also seemed to have an excess 2016 Honda Pilot inventory, but getting from Sarasota to them was about 3 hours one-way and I couldn't get a significantly lower price commitment from them over the phone. I hope this helps.
