The current generation of Pilot remains one of the best-selling three-row crossovers in the US market. His main selling point seems to be the interior of the van without having to look like one. To keep it on top, it seems that Honda will release a new version in the near future. This will be the renewal of the average life of the car and is likely to hit the market with the 2019 Honda Pilot. Until now, details are still scarce on this new model. Even so, Honda will probably update its appearance and interior and should give it a slightly better engine set. The end result should be cheaper and better drive and offer a more relaxed driving experience.
Few things will change with the regular version of the 2019 Honda Pilot. Some have suggested that the car could move closer to the design of its truck counterpart, but so far nothing has been confirmed. The short wheelbase model will likely have smaller three-quarter rear windows, a slightly different bumper and perhaps a new tailgate. Only this would allow the car to appear a little more aggressive, which is usually desired in its category. Honda also saw a black version of the Pilot in 2015. So far, this model has not been available for sale, but could be with the next revision of 2019. Expect blackened exterior accents, larger wheels and possibly new headlights and taillights.
The current 2019 Honda Pilot is actually one of the best crossovers in its class. It will not change, so you should keep this title. However, the update could come with a revised infotainment system, with a volume knob and possibly a higher resolution screen, probably new interior accents like real aluminum and maybe even wood. It is expected that the 5-seater version of the car will have the same design on the dashboard, but it will have a row of sliding rear seats with several ways to adjust them.
With 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque, it’s not exactly the most powerful in its class. Still, he manages to get the pilot to reach 60 mph fast enough and is not the most inefficient engine on the market. Despite all this, it seems that an update could be in progress. Although these are just rumors, it is likely that the next 2019 Honda Pilot will turn to the turbo. It is very likely that the car will receive Honda’s new 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, which has impressed many people in Accord and Type R Civic. In this particular application, the engine must produce about 300 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque. The best part is that it will offer this amount of power while being more efficient than the V6. A 10-speed automatic transmission will also help, which will make the driver much easier to drive.
Considering that the previous model costs $ 30,595 and that the CR-V costs $ 24,045, we can assume that the next 2019 Honda Pilot will have a price somewhere in between. We can expect it to be published by the end of 2018 and this should happen in September.
