Most Americans in the 21st century live tweet by tweet, post by post. So it seems likely that the average family’s chosen mode of transportation would echo off the same digital walls. In the cavernous and feature-filled 2020 Honda Pilot, you could sing its praises and hear your echo played back on an endless loop. (It’s that spacious.)
A roomy interior isn’t all the new Honda Pilot SUV has going for it. There’s a lot to love in (and out) of this new 3-row SUV, which is available for sale and lease right now at our Honda dealerships near Phoenix. Dealer plug aside, here are the best reasons you should make the upgrade to a new Pilot:
A 3-Row Dynamo in 6 Flavors
Honda developed a tour de force with its newest Pilot. Available in six trims (LX, EX, EX-L, Touring, Elite and Black Edition), Pilot offers the contemporary families of Arizona more than meets the eye.
All 2020 Honda Pilot SUVs come equipped with a 280-horsepower*, 3.5L V6 engine that produces 262 lb.-ft. of torque*. In the LX, Honda Sensing comes standard, as does 8-passenger seating, a 6-speed transmission, multi-angle rearview camera, automatic high-beam headlights, and push-button start.
The 2020 Pilot EX trim adds standard Intelligent Traction Management, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, One-Touch 2nd-Row Seats, Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Monitor, heated front seats, an updated 8-inch touchscreen, remote start, tri-zone climate control, CabinControl, and a 10-way power driver’s seat.
Venture into the new Pilot EX-L and you’ll get a one-touch power moonroof, 2nd-row sunshades, a power tailgate, CabinTalk, an automatic-dimming rearview mirror, 3 USB charging ports, plus the option to add GPS and a Blu-ray™ Rear Entertainment System.
The Honda Pilot Touring is enhanced by a hands-free power tailgate, available 2nd-row heated captain’s chairs, a 10-speaker audio system, a 9-speed automatic transmission, Wi-Fi, a standard Rear Entertainment System, 20-inch alloy wheels, roof rails, blue ambient LED lighting, and HondaLink.
You’ll find a standard panoramic roof, heated 2nd-row captain’s chairs, heated and ventilated front seats, wireless phone charging, standard AWD, a heated steering wheel, Multi-Zone Audio, and rain-sensing windshield wipers inside the 2020 Honda Pilot Elite.
Its Black Edition trim sits atop the lineup – and it’s as cool as the other side of the pillow. Pilot Black Edition models include Elite model features plus special badging and trim, leather upholstery, 20-inch black alloy wheels, and red ambient LED lighting.
Driven by Technology
Compared to rivals like the Kia Telluride, the 2020 Pilot is technological heaven with seating for 8. Among the many great features piloting the Pilot, some favorites include:
- Wi-Fi Hotspot – Transform your Pilot into a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot to enjoy wireless streaming of audio and video with an AT&T data plan*
- CabinControl – Via the official CabinControl app, passengers can change music, adjust climate and more from their smartphone or device
- CabinTalk – Drivers can impersonate a real pilot with Honda’s CabinTalk in-car PA system
- Tri-Zone Climate – Temperatures can be adjusted individually for all three rows of the Pilot
- Wireless Phone Charging – Ditch the charging cable and join the future with Pilot’s available wireless phone charger
- Rear Entertainment System – Watch DVDs or Blu-ray™ Discs with Pilot’s optional 10.2-inch Rear Entertainment System
- Hands-Free Power Tailgate – While your hands are full, just kick your toes under the bumper to open the rear tailgate
On the safety front, the 2020 Honda Pilot is the epitome of protection wrapped in fine sheet metal and plastic. Honda Pilot comes with the full suite of Honda Sensing features. This includes intelligent software and systems like the Collision Mitigation Braking System, Road Departure Mitigation System, Lane Keeping Assist System, and Adaptive Cruise Control.
