2019 Honda Pilot EX vs EX-L

Power Moonroof w/Tilt Feature No Yes
Power Tailgate No Yes
Leather Seats No Yes
Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ No Available
Advanced Rear Entertainment System with 10.2-inch Screen No Available

Since it’s a step up in the lineup, it’s no surprise that the Pilot EX-L is a bit more expensive. The EX-L trim also happens to have a few extra features that are not available on the Pilot EX. Not to say the EX trim isn’t impressive! Each of these Pilot models certainly has a lot to offer the modern driver. In addition to the elements mentioned in the table, the EX-L also comes with the HomeLink® remote system, an automatic-dimming rearview mirror, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.Apple-CarPlay-shown-on-display-screen-in-2019-Honda-Pilot

Just wanted to say "Thank you!" for verifying an issue with a tire on my daughter's 2007 Honda Civic as I was driving her from the greater Houston area to Charlotte (and her on to Virginia). The Service team was friendly, accommodating, communicative at every step and if we lived anywhere close, I'd bring vehicles in there for service. Thanks again for taking care of ... us today on our travels!
