The 2019 Pilot features a more aggressive exterior look, but the main upgrades are within its circuitry. There is now a hands-free power tailgate available, and the nine-speed automatic transmission on the Touring and Elite variants feature "significant refinements."
Other on-board tech updates include: in-car 4G LTE WiFi, a new touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability, a bigger entertainment screen with Blu-ray and video streaming, the CabinTalk in-car PA system, and the CabinControl app which is enabled via smartphone.
Within the next four years, Honda is aiming to make its Honda Sensing safety suite standard on all models and trims. In line with those plans, the new Pilot comes with said suite equipped across the range.
"The continued fortification of the Honda light truck lineup with the refreshed 2019 Pilot and HR-V further enhances our already award-winning lineup of Honda SUVs," said senior VP of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. and GM of the Honda Division Henio Arcangeli, Jr.
The refreshed Pilot will go on sale in the US starting July 16. Would you like to see this in the Philippines?
