The 2020 Honda Pilot is a 3-row crossover SUV. It’s got a 3.5-liter V6 engine that makes 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. It comes with a six speed automatic transmission, and higher trim levels, like the Elite AWD model we tested, is equipped with a 9-speed automatic transmission. Front wheel drive is standard, all-wheel drive is an option.
There have not been many changes to the Pilot for 2020 since it underwent a mid-cycle refresh for the 2019 model year. Small cosmetic details distinguish the 2020 model, but an entire Black Edition Pilot is new for 2020.
Competition includes the Toyota Highlander, Ford Explorer, Chevrolet Traverse, Hyundai Palisade and Kia Telluride.
