Sporting Fresh Styling and New Technology

  • New Canadian Exclusive Black Edition Trim
  • Bold new styling, front and rear
  • Powertrain refinements enhance drivability
  • Extensive technology upgrades include standard Display Audio, available CabinTalk™in-car PA and CabinControl™ app and 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot  

The redesigned and refreshed 2019 Honda Pilot arrives on August 24, bringing with it a long list of upgrades. The numerous changes include a bold exterior styling, an available new hands-free power tailgate, substantial powertrain refinements, upgrades to connected-car technology, a standard new Display Audio touchscreen system with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration, and a volume knob.

Combined, the upgrades to Pilot reinforce its capabilities while emphasizing the state-of-the-art technology and family-friendly character that has made it popular among midsize 3-row SUVs. The pilot also remains one of the few models in its segment to offer 8 passenger seating (7-seats with the optional second-row Captain’s Chairs), with three-person capacity in both the second and third rows, and with third-row access made simple and easy by the available One-Touch Walk-In feature.

For 2019, Honda will introduce a new, Canadian-exclusive Black Edition trim featuring gloss black accents, black wheels, darkened headlights and taillights, red ambient lighting and red-accent stitched leather seats on the interior and Black Edition emblems on the exterior.

 

All 2019 Pilot’s features a bold front and rear styling to complement the Pilot’s robust all-weather driving capabilities, supported by Honda’s standard intelligent Variable Torque Management system (i-VTM4) with true torque-vectoring. Standard i-VTM4 uses an electronically-controlled, hydraulically-actuated rear differential to apportion engine torque between the front and rear axles, and dynamically distribute torque between the left and right rear wheels. The benefits are superior all-weather handling, and neutral, accurate steering under power.

In addition, the 2019 Pilot’s 9-speed automatic transmission, available in the Touring 7 passenger, Touring 8 Passenger and Black Edition trims, gets new tuning for enhanced drivability and smoother shifts, while Pilot’s Idle Stop system now provides quicker restarts and more seamless operation.
