See the Trims on the 2019 Honda Pilot

By Ryan Everson | September 19th, 2018

The 2019 Honda Pilot has plenty of options for drivers who want a practical yet plush family-focused SUV. From this vehicle’s captain’s chair, you command a V-6 engine with front- or all-wheel drive. The cabin has thoughtful features to keep all six passengers in its two rear rows comfortable and entertained, while the front offers tech that makes your drive easier.

Check out the available trim levels for the 2019 Honda Pilot to decide which one is right for you.

2019 Honda Pilot LX

This people mover is for drivers who want three-rows of seating without the stigmatized minivan body style. Instead, this crossover’s sleek and athletic-looking body hints at the sportiness under the hood.

All five Pilot trims come with the same 3.5-liter V-6 engine that delivers 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. And this engine makes it easy to bring along the big toys for your weekend vacation. When paired with front-wheel drive, the Pilot can tow up to 3,500 pounds, while the all-wheel-drive version can tote up to 5,000 pounds.

Along with that power comes a suite of active safety features and driver-assistive technology to give you extra confidence. Get help staying in the lines with the road-departure mitigation and lane-keep assist, and make traffic less stressful with the adaptive cruise control and automatic emergency braking.

There is seating for up to eight passengers in three spacious rows and enough room to fit a 20-gallon cooler behind the third row. The second and third rows have a 40/60 split-folding capability to accommodate large, unusually shaped items and still have room for passengers. Fold both rear rows and expose up to 109 cubic feet of cargo space to pack with materials for your next DIY project or your mountain bike, depending on your next adventure.

Get better visibility with LED headlights that turn off and on without you lifting a finger. You’ll also get high-beam headlights that automatically turn on when needed and LED daytime running lights. See behind your vehicle with the multi-angle rearview camera and get an extra second to move your foot from the brake to the gas on steep grades with hill start assist.

The 2019 Honda Pilot LX starts at $31,450.


2019 Honda Pilot EX

Enjoy an interior built for confidence. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto give you easy access to your favorite apps, texting, and navigation via the 8-inch color touchscreen on the dash. Get comfortable with a 10-way power-adjustable driver seat and stay warm in the chilly months with heated front seats.

The Pilot EX comes standard with intelligent traction management that helps you maintain grip, stability, and confidence in less-than-ideal road conditions. Front-wheel-drive models feature Normal and Snow modes, whereas all-wheel-drive models have Normal, Snow, Mud, and Sand modes.

The 2019 Honda Pilot EX starts at $34,330.

2019 Honda Pilot EX-L

The Pilot EX-L is almost identical to the EX trim, but it includes supple and durable leather on the seats, steering wheel, and shift knob. With its seat-position memory, you can get comfortable at the push of a button.

Take advantage of the power-tilt sunroof and bring a little extra sunlight into the cabin with the push of a button. If the sun is too bright, the second-row sunshades to protect your passengers, while the auto-dimming rear-view mirror keeps high-beams from the rear at bay.

The 2019 Honda Pilot EX-L starts at $37,760.

2019 Honda Pilot Touring

Whether you’re gearing up for a day at the beach or packing for a weekend getaway, kick your foot under the rear bumper to activate the hands-free power liftgate. This gives you easy access to the rear cargo area for hassle-free loading and unloading.

Keep your passengers comfortable in any season with the heated front and rear outboard seats. The second row also has a rear entertainment system with Blu-ray to keep the kids entertained and quiet for long drives. And a 10-speaker premium audio system ensures you enjoy all your favorite tunes on the go.

The Pilot Touring carries the same 3.5-liter V-6 engine, but it pairs with an upgraded nine-speed automatic transmission. This engine also features an automatic stop-start system to help improve fuel economy.

The exterior boasts LED headlights with auto on/off functionality so you can see better in the dark and conserve energy when it’s bright out. And the roof rails let you bring along more toys to make your adventure as exciting as you want it to be.

Don’t let adventure get you turned around. Stay on course and adjust to find the best route to your destination with the Honda satellite-linked navigation system.

The 2019 Honda Pilot Touring starts at $42,520.


2019 Honda Pilot Elite

Choose all the bells and whistles with the top-level Elite trim. From the panoramic roof with beautiful, expansive views to the heated and ventilated front seats that provide all-season comfort, the Elite trim lives up to its name.

Get dynamic control with standard all-wheel drive and bring your office wherever the road takes you with a mobile hotspot. Your devices can stay charged and ready to go with a wireless charger built into the front console.

Enjoy classic refinement like the heated steering wheel; auto-dimming, power-folding side mirrors; and illuminated beverage holders.

The 2019 Honda Pilot Elite starts at $48,020.
