  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) – When there’s the potential for a frontal collision, this feature will help your Pilot brake to avoid it.
  • Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM) – Using sensors in the rearview mirror, this system can detect if you’re about to leave your lane and provide steering and braking assistance to keep you where you need to be.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) – Maintain a set speed while on Cicero streets and keep a safe set distance from a vehicle in front of you.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) – This feature adjusts steering to keep you and your Pilot within the lane markings.
