We had to wait two years to see the 2020 Honda Pilot and redesign that the manufacturer has planned to make since the first pilot version was shown on test driving. To be honest, we were being able to see much so far neither, but the final version of it should be on the market very soon. Finally, there should be changes in the engine as well as a new hybrid model.

Likes:

  • There is a new modern design.
  • The engine should be fulfilled with a hybrid unit.

Dislikes:

  • There are no visible changes in the cabin.
  • We are not sure in equipment in the cabin so far.

Exterior

2020 Honda Pilot review

As we were able to see under the thick protection, 2020 Honda Pilot comes as changed in design with few differences in details. The design surely still recalls on famous modern crossovers like Toyota RAV4. However, there are changes and according to the camouflage, the main changes should be on the front bumper. The rear end is modernized, longer than before, but with obvious decoration on the rear window and trunk door. The crossover should be made on the new platform, too.

Interior

The cabin in 2020 Honda Pilot is as attractive as very comfortable, providing a spacious cabin for family driving mostly. However, there is great equipment in the current model so we expect that the manufacturer will not much change it for this time. The main change that we are sure about is in phone connection since the new version comes as upgraded.

Engine

As a standard engine in 2020 Honda Pilot comes 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 280 horsepower of strength and 262 pound-feet of torque. It is actually a standard for this size of the crossovers, so we are used to seeing in Toyota Highlander, for example. The engine comes paired with six-speed automatic transmission and nine-speed automatic transmission in higher trims. You may have noticed that this engine was a standard in previous Pilot, too, so it is not that much surprising. On the other hand, there are rumors that the manufacturer has prepared a hybrid engine as a combination of the electric engine along with the petrol unit. It should be also one of the similar standard models that come in this size of the vehicles.

2020 Honda Pilot Release Date and Price

Since we have waited two years to see these changes in 2020 Honda Pilot, we can withstand a few months more to actually see how it looks like. However, we are not sure in price, even though the manufacturer has not said much about increasing of it. The last year model had a price for a standard model $32,000 while the most expensive version was even $49,000. However, we should wait for how much this model will cost, thus.
