2020 Honda Pilot Black Edition
Envy-Inducing Package Brings the Cool (+video)

Fresh from a thorough style and technology update for model year 2019, the 2020 Honda Pilot returns and will continue to offer the popular Black Edition trim.

The 2020 Pilot Black Edition is based on the Touring 7P trim and features numerous exterior and interior styling enhancements. The Pilot Black Edition comes in Crystal Black Pearl or Platinum White Pearl paint and includes Black Edition badges on the grille and tailgate. Pilot Black Edition also includes black-painted 20-inch alloy wheels, and blackout treatments for the grille, headlight trim, side trim, door handles, window trim and fog light accents.

Inside, there is red accent lighting for the dash, doors and center console, with red accent stitching on the front and second row captain’s chairs, door panels and steering wheel. The Black Edition logo is embossed on front seats and floor mats, and the front and second-row seats also get a red accent to the perforated leather seating surface.

The aggressive new styling introduced to Pilot last year emphasizes its capabilities while highlighting the state-of-the-art technology and family-friendly character that has made it one of the most popular midsize three-row SUVs. Pilot Black is also one of the few models in its segment to offer second-row heated captain’s chairs and includes seating for seven in total.

Third row access is made simple and easy by the available One-Touch Walk-In feature. In addition to standard Honda Sensing, technology highlights include 7-inch touchscreen Display Audio system with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility, Display Audio System with Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System and bilingual Voice Recognition, CabinTalk™ in-vehicle public address system, wireless smartphone charging, and a hands-free power tailgate.

Black Edition Pilots also feature AT&T Wi-Fi hotspot capability, enabling expanded subscription-based HondaLink® services that include Enhanced Roadside Assistance, Auto Collision Notification, Stolen Vehicle Locator Service, Remote Lock and Unlock, geo-fencing and speed alerts for parents of teen drivers, a stolen vehicle locator, start, and even personal concierge services.

Every pilot comes with a 280-hp 3.5-litre, 24-valve, Direct Injection, SOHC, i_VTEC V6 engine with 262 lb.-ft. of torque. And to help every litre go further, the Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) system is designed to automatically switch between 6 and 3 cylinders, depending on driving conditions.

The 2020 Pilot’s robust off-road and all-weather driving capabilities are assisted by Honda’s available intelligent Variable Torque Management system (i-VTM4®) with true torque-vectoring. Standard on all AWD trims, i-VTM4® uses an electronically-controlled, hydraulically-actuated rear differential to apportion engine torque between the front and rear axles, and dynamically distribute torque between the left and right rear wheels. The benefits are superior all-weather handling, and neutral, accurate steering under power.

Honda offers a full line of reliable, fuel-efficient and fun-to-drive vehicles with advanced safety technologies. The Honda lineup includes the Fit, Civic, Insight, Accord and Clarity series passenger cars, along with the HR-V, CR-V, Passport and Pilot sport utility vehicles, the Ridgeline pickup and the Odyssey minivan.
