2019 Honda Pilot

The 2019 Honda Pilot SUV has been given a refreshed appearance and new technology. The biggest news is that the Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver-assistive technology is standard across the entire Pilot lineup, including the entry-level LX trim that starts at $32,445 (all prices include the $995 destination charge).

Honda Sensing includes adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, a multi-angle rearview camera, LED daytime running lights, and more.

Other available upgrades on the 2019 Pilot include a hands-free power tailgate, connected-car technology, and a new Display Audio touchscreen system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a volume knob. Every new Pilot also receives more aggressive front and rear styling to complement the SUV’s off-road and all-weather capabilities.

Honda is also updating the nine-speed automatic transmission, available on the Touring and Elite trims, which now provides smoother shifts. The Pilot’s Idle Stop system receives quicker restarts from a stop, too.

Pricing for the 2019 Honda Pilot ranges from the entry-level, front-wheel-drive LX at $32,445 to the Honda Pilot Elite at $49,015, which includes the nine-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.

The refreshed 2019 Honda Pilot is already available at Honda dealerships across the country. The added safety technology accounts for just a small premium to the base price – the 2018 model started at $31,395 – which is a significant bonus when compared to other three-row SUVs such as the Ford Explorer and GMC Acadia.
