What’s the Benefit?
The 2019 Pilot’s new instrument panel places a wealth of key information directly in front of the driver, allowing significant interaction while helping to minimize the possibility of distraction.
The instrument panel includes several key items (some features are on select trims only):
At the very top, the Eco Assist™ ambient meter encourages efficient driving techniques.
Just below that, a linear tachometer keeps track of engine speed; it can be hidden if desired.
A large digital speedometer occupies the center of the space below the tach; to its left is the transmission gear indicator, and the ACC/LKAS display is to its right.
Predominant in the middle of the panel is the Driver Information Interface (DII), a customizable display that lets drivers interact with various systems; see the DII article for more information.
To the very left-hand side of the instrument panel is a large engine-temperature display; it’s mirrored on the right by an easy-to-read fuel gauge.
Several informational and warning indicators occupy the intervening spaces.
