Yes, it is called the VTM-4. There is a button on the dash which you can push to engage it so that all four wheels are "locked" in. I believe that it will stay engaged till you reach 18mph at which point it kicks out and the usual system takes over.pilotx said:Is there a differential lock option for the pilot? like the one that you can find on the Toyota 4RUNNER, as this option helps a lot when stock in snow or mud.
By the way any transmissions problems with your PILOTS like some MDXs and Odysseys?
The Pilot does not have a center differential at all, and does not have a true rear differential.Birdman said:When in 1st or 2nd gear, the Pilot's rear and center differential can be locked at low speeds to get unstuck. I've used the feature many times to get up a friend's icy driveway here in Michigan. It works very well. In Drive and at high speeds, the controls on the center differential seamlessly apply at least some power to the wheels that have traction. The effect is a very stable, useful, and efficient 4 wheel drive system that works well in all the road conditions I've encountered so far. A more complete explanation is in the technical section of the Honda web site for the Pilot.
How dare someone say that another vehicle is better in ANY aspect than our beloved PilotMG Pilot said:Wow!!! I wonder if you are driving some Explorer proto-type, but all the Explorers I have driven have been some of the biggest pieces of s**t on the planet. How can you even compare the two??
Hence, I’m not sure how you can make such a statement…
That's easy...monkey see, monkey do. People see all these Explorers on the road and think to themselves how can all these people be wrong??? Most people are lazy when it comes to car research. People who don’t know any better buy from whatever dealer happens to be the closest. You would not believe the logic some people use to justify the purchase of an inferior product. For example, Car and Driver recently tested eight suvs. After hearing her discuss the potential purchase of GMC Envoy/Chevy TrailBlazer, I showed her the CD article in which the Envoy finished where it should. DEAD LAST! Guess what suv she ended up buying??? You guessed it. Most people do not care about things such as reliability, re-sale value, drivability, fit and finish, etc. Hence, people end up buying Chevys and Fords.JungleJim said:

If Explorers where actually all pieces of s**t, how could they sell so many?
Of course, I'll take the Pilot, thank you
