What's New Under the Hood and In-Cabin in the New 2019 Honda Pilot?

Fresh off a mid-cycle revision, the favorite mid-size crossover SUV of families the whole of northern West Virginia over is back here at Urse Honda in Bridgeport, ready for a new model year. How does it differ from its 2018 sibling? In more than a few ways.

Most notably, 2019 Pilot is a more comfortable, confident handler, with further refinements to its available nine-speed auto transmission. Aside from smoother shifts, the short-ratio gearbox also offers the ease of paddle shifters, letting you keep your hands on the wheel, as well as of shift-by-wire, keeping those changes nearly seamless. As it's paired in higher trims with its high-performance hallmark, a standard 280-horsepower V6 ready to dish out 262 pound-feet of torque, you can look forward to plenty of power for charging down the highway. With the available Intelligent Variable Torque Management (i-VTM4) all-wheel-drive system, otherwise standard in Pilot Elite, your travel plans can even take a turn off the beaten path That's not to mention that you can tow up to 5,000 pounds -- enough capacity for anything from a small tent camper, dirt bike, or ATV to a towable RV or even a second car.

Secondly, the new Pilot is home to several new safety standards, the standout among them, Honda Sensing® technology. It's a suite of exclusive tech that incorporates road departure mitigation and lane-keeping assist systems and lane-departure warning to keep you on track, adaptive cruise control for safe distancing, and forward collision warning and a Collision Mitigation Braking System&#trade;, for avoiding accidents.

In short, 2019 Honda Pilot is ready for any excursion, whether you're headed up to Fairmont, out to Morgantown, or just down the road to Clarksburg. Eager to set a course? You can start by plotting one to our showroom here at 772 Barnett Run Road. We'll be delighted to take you for a test drive to show you what else it's got to offer!
