2020 Honda Pilot vs. 2019 Honda Pilot

The Honda Pilot has held the title as the automaker’s most capable crossover SUV for quite some time. For the upcoming model year, a comparison of the 2020 Honda Pilot vs. 2019 Honda Pilot shows how the manufacturer maintains those levels of performance and capability but has also improved safety and overall aesthetic refinement. Both model years share the same six trim grades that have appeared on previous versions, LX, EX, EX-L, EX-L Navi/RES, Touring and Elite. However, the 2020 Honda Pilot tacks on a new top-of-the-line trim, the Black Edition. In terms of safety, the 2020 Pilot makes the Honda Sensing® suite of driver assistance system standard equipment across the board. Customers can schedule a test drive today by calling, 601-693-4651.

From a physical standpoint, the 2020 Honda Pilot and the 2019 version are identical. The trims that are shared between the two model years still offer three rows of seating that can accommodate eight passengers in the LX, EX, EX-L and EX-L Navi/RES. The Elite versions of both model years and the new 2019 Pilot Black Edition will hold seven passengers. The Touring trim for 2020 and 2019 Pilot have a choice of seven or eight riders, depending on the options a Meridian Honda customer chooses. Cargo volume dimensions are also the same between the shared trim designations. The new 2020 Black Edition version of the Honda Pilot makes up to 82.1 cubic-feet available. Finally, the four primary features of the Honda Sensing system are available across the board with the 2020 Honda Pilot.

Performance Specs

Like the 2019 model, the 2020 Honda Pilot continues to use the same naturally aspirated 3.5-liter, V-6 engine. The LX, EX, EX-L, EX-L Navi/RES trims of each Honda Pilot model year use a six-speed automatic transmission. Buyers choosing the 2020 versions of the Touring, Elite and Black Edition trims of the new Pilot will use the nine-speed automatic transmission. The 2019 Touring and Elite trims also use the nine-speed automatic. Owners of either model year will be able to use up to 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Additionally, all Honda Pilot trims above the base LX model for both years can be equipped with front- or all-wheel-drive.

Two-wheel-drive models of the 2020 Honda Pilot can tow up to 3,500 pounds and up to 5,000 pounds when the three-row crossover SUV is equipped with all-wheel-drive. The same holds true with the 2019 Honda Pilot.
