Prepare to Test Drive the 2019 Honda Pilot

2019 Honda Pilot models are on their way to Honda dealerships across the country, including Keyes Honda. With the 2018 Honda Pilot already a big hit with drivers here at our dealership near Glendale, CA, we’re excited to take these new models for a spin when they arrive.

The 2019 Honda Pilot has gained added off-road prowess, without losing any of its day-to-day utility. The updated exterior reflects this newfound attitude with an aggressive front fascia sporting standard LED low-beam headlights. In the rear, new taillights with LED backup lights, a new bumper, and chrome accents all add to the Honda SUV’s eye-catching appeal.

The 9-speed automatic transmission, available in 2019 Honda Pilot Touring and Elite models, has been outfitted with new capabilities. When the car is in Drive with light-to-moderate throttle, the transmission will now start in second gear. This will provide drivers with a smoother launch and lower speed acceleration. This second gear launch will also be triggered when drivers have Intelligent Traction Management set to Snow mode.

Honda Sensing®, the automaker’s innovative suite of safety and driver-assistance technologies, comes standard in all 2019 Honda Pilot models. The Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) with Forward Collision Warning, Road Departure Mitigation (RDM), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) are all yours, with the option to add in other advanced features.

The Honda Pilot fills a unique niche in the automaker’s lineup. In their review of the 2018 model, Car and Driver said that “…the [Honda] Pilot may be the closest thing to a minivan without actually being a minivan, and that alone may increase its appeal to buyers.” We can’t wait to learn more about what the 2019 model has in store.

To test drove the latest Honda cars, including some 2019 models that have already arrived, head into Keyes Honda today.
