The popular mid-size crossover is about to come with a bunch of changes as 2020 Honda Pilot if we can trust the latest report. This amazing SUV, known for its versatility, has been around since the early 2000s. Far, we have seen three generations of it.This refresh will bring a bunch of changes. Of course, the focus is on the visual improvements, but 2020 Pilot will also come with important novelty under the hood.We are about to see a new hybrid powertrain in the offer, which will definitely make this crossover even more competitive. On the other side, interior design shouldn’t be changed a lot, though new standard features will certainly come.
2020 Honda Pilot Exterior Changes
Facelifts are mostly about styling upgrades and 2020 Honda Pilot won’t be an exception at all. As you probably know, the legendary mid-size sedan Accord came completely new last year. It has brought plenty of new styling solutions and can expect some of them to be implemented on the new 2020 Honda Pilot.While most of expect 2020 Honda Pilot to carry on without bigger changes, there are several reports that suggest changes. Expect to see some novelties in terms of new color options, wheels design etc
2020 Honda Pilot Interior
While the exterior is about to come with a bunch of subtle changes, the cabin of the new 2020 Honda Pilot will probably remain unchanged. We will see the same interior design, which is pretty much all about practicality.
The base trim level organization will remain the same. This crossover is available in five trim levels– LX, EX, EX-L, Touring, and Elite.The LX comes in pretty basic layout, but it definitely isn’t a bare bone. The Touring is the second highest trim level in the offer, so it’s not wondering that comes with a pretty long list of standard equipment. Some of the highlights are 20-inch wheels, new 9-speed transmission, ambient lighting, parking sensors, 10-speaker audio system, driver memory settings etcNote that this is the list for the current 2018-year model and that the new 2020 Pilot will probably come with a bunch of additions for each trim level.
2020 Honda Pilot Plug-In Hybrid
One of the biggest novelties for 2020 Honda Pilot will be a new plug-in hybrid version. The new electrified system is pretty much the same as in new Accord. The new 2020 Honda Pilot Hybrid will probably feature slightly lower numbers, but pretty close to the sedan’s figures.
2020 Honda Pilot Engine
Base models come with a familiar 6-speed automatic transmission. On the other side, a new 9-speed gearbox is available in higher trims. Thanks to a Variable Cylinder Management, this engine is characterized not only by plenty of power.
2020 Honda Pilot Release Date and Price
The new 2020 Honda Pilot will come sometime in 2019. When it comes to price, the current model goes in a range between 31.000 and 47.500 dollars. On the other side, a new hybrid powertrain could add a few thousand.Competition in the segment is very tough. Some of the rivals are models like the Toyota Highlander, Kia Sorento, and VW Atlas. We shouldn’t forget models like Buick Enclave, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Mazda CX-9, Ford Edge and many other quality mid-size crossovers.
