TheHonda Pilot is an immensely popular three-row SUV perfect for anything from family commutes to off-road adventures, so news of 2019 Honda Pilot changes is always going to attract attention. Honda probed the market and quizzed their drivers to address every issue and make the new Pilot better than ever.

Retuned Transmission

The 2019 Honda Pilot features the same powertrain as the outgoing model: a 280-hp 3.5L V6 paired to a 9-speed automatic transmission. However, that doesn’t mean nothing has changed. In fact, Honda has made significant refinements to that transmission: new software should result in quicker shifts, fewer problems, and stronger efficiency.

New Body

The new Honda Pilot will take a popular design and bring it right up to the cutting-edge. With new slim “Jewel Eye” LED headlights, a redesigned grille, and an updated lower fascia, the 2019 Pilot changes have turned it into quite a looker. Overall, it’s a slightly bolder and more arresting appearance, so expect to turn more heads as you cruise around Naperville, Aurora, and Bolingbrook. There’s even a new 20-inch wheel design, along with redesigned rear lights and a new rear bumper.

  • Qi Wireless Charging
