Interested in buying the AWD touring and doing research on it. Looking forward to 2017.

Now, I have seem at some places that fog lights is an optional accessory? But from the feature comparison table (http://automobiles.honda.com/images/2016/pilot/downloads/2016-pilot-specifications-highlights.pdf) I see that Touring includes fog lights. Is there any other kind of fog lights available for this model?


Also, I seem to get the impression that towing capacity for AWD Touring is 5000 lbs, but only with ATF cooler accessory. Without this accessory, the capacity is 3500 lbs. Is this correct? If yes, I would then need to think whether I should get the accessory with the purchase.

You are essentially correct regarding the towing limits, AWD gets 5000 lbs with ATF Cooler installed. I attached the excerpt from the owners manual here. Note that 5000 lbs is the upper limit to include any cargo and extra passengers in the vehicle.

In case its relevant for you the ATF cooler for Touring and Elite models runs approx $300 where as for the lower trims it is $130 (At least on Handa.com)
