Most families purchase the Pilot because of its practical features, including cargo space among many others. With a maximum cargo capacity of 83.9 cubic feet, the Pilot ranks high in its segment, conceding space only to more cavernous options such as the Chevy Traverse and Kia Telluride. While I may lack the typical 2.2 kids of the average American family, I do lug around 2.2 times the camera equipment of most Americans. And the Pilot never failed to accommodate. 

With its split-folding third-row bench seat, we loaded the crossover with camera trunks, tripods, diffusers, and more – there’s even a bonus compartment beneath the trunk area. Among its practical features, the Pilot’s ability to take on cargo is perhaps its best.
