Overview

What's New

The 2019 Pilot undergoes several updates to make this highly popular 3-row SUV even more attractive:

  • Pilot projects a bold new look, with a sharpened grille and fascia, and upgraded headlights in front; handsome restyled wheels and side sills update the profile; and a new treatment for the rear lights and skid area adorn the back
  • Every Pilot trim now comes standard with the Honda Sensing® suite of safety and driver-assistive features
  • Pilot Touring and Elite buyers will now enjoy the great convenience of the hands-free access power tailgate that already enhances the experience of many CR-V and Odyssey customers; on Pilot, the kick zone has been expanded for easier operation
  • New to the Pilot lineup are power-folding side mirrors on the Elite—and in a first for any Honda, those side mirrors also feature automatic dimming
  • There’s a new variation within the Touring trim; it has all the Touring’s features and adds the 2nd-row captain’s chairs and center console from the Elite—plus, it can go with either front- or all-wheel drive
  • The 9-speed automatic on Touring and Elite has been remapped for smoother running, including 2nd-gear takeoffs in most situations
  • The idle-stop feature on Touring and Elite has also been updated for more refined operation
  • New fabric adorns the LX and EX interiors
  • The fold-down center armrests on the front seats are wider, for greater comfort
  • The steering wheel from the 2018 Odyssey—along with its much greater number of controls—has been adapted to the new Pilot
  • The Odyssey’s instrument panel and Driver Information Interface—with some reconfigured graphics—have made the leap to the 2019 Pilot as well
  • 2019 Pilots with Display Audio gain the Odyssey unit, with its volume/power knob and color-coded icon graphics
  • Also picked up from Odyssey is the CabinControl® feature, now on the 2019 Pilot EX and above trims
  • The exceptionally engaging Advanced Rear Entertainment System from the 2018 Odyssey—complete with Blu-ray™, HDMI and wireless audio streaming capabilities, plus the fun How Much Farther?® app—as well as the CabinTalk® feature are included on EX-L Navi/RES and above trims
  • Thanks to their new built-in telematics unit, Pilot Touring and Elite trims can provide HondaLink®22 Subscription Services along with a mobile hotspot30 capability (note that the HondaLink Remote Start feature is not available for Pilot at this time)
  • The Premium Audio system on Touring and Elite trims gains even more power for 2019, going from 540 to 590 watts
  • Pilot Elite owners will now enjoy the convenience of a wireless phone charger for their compatible smartphones
