Review: 2019 Honda Pilot

The newly restyled 2019 Honda Pilot is a perfect blend of creature comforts and versatility. Whether on the way to a soccer game or a long weekend on the shore, Poughkeepsie area drivers will love the Pilot’s styling and performance.


For the 2019 Pilot Honda has stuck to its tried and true approach to packing lots of standard features into each trim level. The entry level LX models for example, come standard seating for up to 8, 18-inch alloy wheels, Rear Privacy glass, push button start and hill start assist to name a few.

Moving up to the EX model adds such modern conveniences as Apple CarPlayTM and Android AutoTM integration, remote engine start, Tri-zone automatic climate control and more.

The top of the line Elite trim level rolls luxury level features including, a wireless phone charger, heated second row captain’s chairs, heated steering wheel, a 10 speaker, 590-watt premium audio system and much more.



All 2019 Pilots come with Honda’s 3.5L V-6 engine.  This power plant delivers a robust 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque.  All that power allows the Pilot to achieve up to 3,500 pounds of towing capacity.  The 2019 Pilot also receives Honda’s 9-speed shift-by-wire transmission that include racecar inspired paddle shifters.

Honda has always placed a high priority on safety and the 2019 Pilot is no exception. The Pilot LX for example comes standard with such safety features as Auto high-beam headlights, LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL), multi-angle rearview camera, and Honda’s suite of features known as HondaSensing TM. HondaSensing TM consist of many intuitive features like the Lane Keeping assist System which helps correct steering to the center of the lane, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) which helps drivers maintain the desired distance between a detected vehicle in front of them, the Road Departure Mitigation System which will adjust both the brakes and steering if a driver crosses lanes without signaling and possibly most importantly, the Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBSTM).
