The 2019 Honda Pilot is a Surprising Mid-Size SUV

2019 Honda Pilot

Sport utility vehicles have never been so popular with consumers, and that’s because of models like the 2019 Honda Pilot. This mid-size, three-row, mid-size SUV is not only spacious for your passengers, but also for everyone and their luggage.

Powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine producing 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque combined with a 10-speed gearbox. The new Honda Pilot delivers top performance and impressive fuel economy.

Yes, the Honda Pilot is a good SUV. Its spacious cabin includes three rows of adult-sized seats and a higher cargo capacity than many competitors. These attributes helped make it a finalist for our 2019 Best 3-Row SUV for Families award. There are also  improvements on standard active safety features and the available infotainment system for 2019. On the road, the Pilot is capable and comfortable, making it easy to drive. However, many class rivals have better predicted reliability ratings – Cars US News

A smooth drive all-around

We spent a few hours driving the 2019 Honda Pilot Elite on Southern California’s twisty roads and highways and noted the changes in the transmission. The shifts happen smoothly and at the right time, although the gearbox is always hunting for the highest gear to enhance fuel economy. That changes when driving in Sport mode, where the engine revs at higher rpms and the shifting can be done using the paddles, which showed no delay. The start-stop system also acts quicker when restarting the engine in Sport mode. – Motor Trend

Family friendly

Families will love the available second-row seats that, with one touch, slide to allow easy access to the third row. The newly optional hands-free power liftgate will be important to some shoppers, too. Significantly, the now-standard Honda Sensing system brings a host of active safety features including forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control and lane keeping assist.
