Pilot from Honda has always been known as a powerful and tough ride, so what about the new 2019 Honda Pilot? Honda has been making plans for their Pilot variant, especially for the refreshment and updates. So, what can you expect from the new Pilot? What kind of development are you waiting for?
2019 Honda Pilot Journey and Production
Pilot isn’t exactly a new variant and the third generation was just been launched back then in 2015. However, it seems that Honda thinks that new updates and developments are due for Pilot. That’s why the upcoming 2019 Honda Pilot is said to come with some refreshments, including the design, body style, and also engine.
2019 Honda Pilot Possible Changes
Rumor has it that the new Pilot will be coming with revised and improved powertrain. If it is possible, a new Pilot with shorter wheelbase may be available for the upcoming market. This shorter hang will make the Pilot available for only 5 passengers only. If it is true, then the new Pilot may be cheaper without compromising the features or the comfort. But since Honda hasn’t said anything about it, we can only wait and see for their upcoming creation.
For the upcoming 2019 Honda Pilot, Honda is said to work on the comfort and performance. Although Pilot may be tough and cheap, it is somehow not delivering the exact performance as expected. For that matter, Honda will install new springs and shocks, delivering better comfort and driving ability. With the combination of stiffer chassis and shorter wheelbase, it is possible that the new Pilot will be even better to drive.
2019 Honda Pilot Overall Designs
For the exterior, it seems that not many updates will be happening. With three quarter windows for the rear, revised bumper, and new tailgate, the new Pilot may be looking more aggressive and somewhat youthful.
What about the interior cabin, anyway? Well, it is another different matter. So far, the interior look of Pilot has been viewed as one of the best so it is possible that Honda won’t be doing anything. However, if changes are due, newer infotainment system with better screen, and also better interior accents will be included. You can expect such thing as wood and aluminum for the interior accents of 2019 Honda Pilot.
2019 Honda Pilot Engine
Although Honda is said to come with new engine arrangement, it is possible that they still keep the naturally aspirated V6 engine with 3.5 liter capacity, delivering 280 hp of power. For the 2019 model, the Pilot will be coming with automatic 10 speed transmission with either all four or front wheel driving system. The performance won’t be much affected but you can expect better fuel economy system. It is also possible that the new Pilot will have turbo four engine with 2.0 liter capacity, delivering 240 hp of power.
2019 Honda Pilot Price and Release Date
The Pilot is likely to launch at the end of 2018, around September. Honda hasn’t said anything about the price, but it is predicted that the new 2019 Honda Pilot will be set in between $24,000 and $30,500.
