The 2021 Honda Pilot, one of the best practical and reliable 3-row midsize SUVs is On-Sale now. The 2021 Pilot receives some mild updates and introduces a new Special Edition trim slotting between EX-L and Touring. Prices of the 2021 Honda Pilot have increased by $600 over the previous model. MSRP starts from $32,550 for the Pilot LX, whereas the top-end Black Edition costs $50,220. The Honda Pilot's exterior design is set to get a redesign in the 2022 model, still, the 280 horsepower V6 engine offers a highly capable performance.

The difference between the 2021 Pilot and the outgoing 2020 Pilot comes in the form of the new $38,960 Special Edition trim, which includes 20-inch wheels, a power tailgate, and a wireless charging setup. The 2021 Pilot's specs are updated, as Honda now offers a smoother nine-speed automatic with paddle shifters and Idle-Stop, which was previously available on the Touring model and upward. All 2021 Pilot models now come standard with dual-zone automatic climate control. The Honda Pilot has been competitively priced to take on the Toyota Highlander, and other 3-row SUVs in the segment including the Volkswagen Atlas, Ford Explorer, and Subaru Ascent.

"The $36,050 2021 Pilot EX has the touchscreen infotainment you want, the automatic emergency braking you need, and none of the price creep of more expensive model" - TheCarConnection.

There are many things in the 2021 Honda Pilot's favor. The Honda Pilot offers a roomy and versatile cabin that can seat up to eight.  The cargo space expands to 109.2 cubic feet. Factor in a comfortable ride, powerful-yet-efficient V6 engine, and plus desirable resale value. Towing Capacity is rated at 5,000lbs for the new Pilot AWD. Available with either front-wheel or all-wheel-drive, the 2021 Pilot's starting price takes a $600 jump than the previous model. 

This year Honda has introduced a new Pilot SE trim, that builds on EX-L.  Features like the black 20-inch wheels amongst others are optional. Across the rest of the Honda Pilot trim levels, price increase varies from around $300 to $500. Powered by an efficient 3.5L naturally aspirated V6 engine which generates 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque, returns a well-combined fuel efficiency of 23 MPG. A new 9-speed automatic transmission replaces the old 6-speed option. The 2021 Honda Pilot is available for sale at dealers.

2021 Honda Pilot Buying Advice

Among the roster of 6 varied trim variants on offer in the 2021 Honda Pilot, if you ask us we'd recommend the Honda Pilot Black Edition, or else the brand-new Special Edition trim, which starts at an MSRP of $38,960, goes great for its features and justifies the price-tag. Employment of good amenities, like the Hands-free tailgate, black 20-inch wheels, and wireless charging only add value to this purchase. Moreover, on the performance front, the standard NA V6 engine and the 9-Speed AT gearbox takes care of the rest.

2021 Honda Pilot Engine and Performance

8.2/10

"The Pilot's V6 has a sporty sound and plenty of power, and we like the unobtrusive behaviour of the nine-speed automatic transmission" - CarAndDriver.

The 2021 Honda Pilot offers a naturally aspirated V6 paired with a new ZF-sourced 9 speed automatic transmission. This efficient 3.5-liter i-Vtec engine belts out an impressive 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft. of torque. The Honda Pilot is capable of doing a 0-60 in just 6.2 seconds. You can opt for the drivetrain of your choice - either FWD or AWD.

2021 Honda Pilot SUV has a 3.5L V6 engine

The Honda Pilot's 9-speed gearbox is praiseworthy and the 2021 Pilot AWD does accelerate faster and provides a better cornering grip than the 2WD version at a premium of $2000. If you pick a Pilot with FWD, the maximum towing capacity is 3,500 pounds while a Pilot with AWD offers an increased tow rating of 5,000 pounds.

2021 Honda Pilot Interior

8.5/10

"Despite being spacious for people and thier stuff, the Pilot's interior is a bit behind the curve with its dated and bland design" - Motortrend.

The 2021 Honda Pilot's practically laid-out cabin uses quality materials and has clean interior lines with well-laid-out controls for everything. For 2021, the $32,550 LX trim gets the addition of dual-zone automatic climate control as standard. Starting with EX-L, the 2021 Pilot offers Leather, and it will cost you about $6000 more than the base model.

It comes with soft-touch materials on the dashboard and offers a spacious cabin that can comfortably accommodate eight passengers and seven if you opt for the optional captain's seats which are available with the EX-L and above trims. Rear-seat entertainment is standard starting from Touring trim. The Pilot Elite is the most luxurious version while the top-range Black edition trim adds exclusive blacked-out seat upholstery with red lining stitches and accents.

2021 Honda Pilot offers an optional 7-seater version

The 2021 Pilot has 16.5 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third-row seat, which expands to 46.8 cu.-ft. behind the second-row seats. A maximum of 83.9 cu.-ft cargo room is available in the 2021 Honda Pilot. Starting from Special-edition trim, a hands-free liftgate is standard. The standard panoramic sunroof in the Elite and Black Edition trims slightly reduces the available interior volume - 16 cu.-ft., 46 cu.-ft., and 82.1 cu.-ft., respectively.

The 2021 Honda Pilot is equipped with an average 8.0-inch infotainment system, which is not the most responsive or feature-loaded as others in the same segment offer. In comparison, the three-row 2021 Honda Pilot turns out to be practical and useful and can accommodate adults in the 3rd row even on longer journeys which are not something that can be said for Toyota's Highlander which has a significantly more cramped 3rd row.

"We've always loved the Pilot for its practicality, but looks wise it has never impressed, and the 2021 model is no different: it seems droopy when compared to the competition" - Carbuzz.

The 2021 Honda Pilot brings about a more aggressive look in the front. The Honda Pilot received a revised front and rear fascia end design that looks sharper now with subtle character lines on the body. The Pilot now gets LED headlights that are standard across the trim line

The broad chrome grille with piano black inserts below hands it an aggressive and premium style. The tail-lights complement the rear design and go well with its bulky structure. Honda has inserted subtle elements to freshen the Pilot’s looks.

2021 Honda Pilot Safety

9.0/10

"The Pilot has good outward vision, but you'll have to look over two rows of seats to get a clear view to the rear" - TheCarConnection

The 2021 Honda Pilot has not yet been rated by the safety rating agency NHTSA or the IIHS. However, the previous iteration of the Honda Pilot scored pretty well in the tests. The federal testing agency, NHTSA gave it an overall 5-star rating.

Honda is meant for making sensible cars that offer equal importance to usability, performance, safety, and comfort. The 2021 Honda Pilot is equipped with a decent safety package, and apart from the standard 7 airbags, traction control, and rearview cameras it also gets these electronic assist features. 

  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System
  • LED Daytime Running Lights
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System

2021 Honda Pilot Competition

8.0/10

2021 Honda Pilot Vs 2021 Ford Explorer

The 2021 Ford Explorer is one of the oldest players in the three-row SUV segment. Equipped with a V6 engine that belts out 288 horsepower, it is one of the most powerful in the comparison. It has a lot of positives like a spacious cabin, mild off-roading capacity, and the option to choose from a lot of three engines.

While the Honda has a solely 3.5 Liter V6 naturally aspirated unit on offer. Like the Honda Pilot, the Ford Explorer also offers similar features and comfort. It gets better infotainment and safety features, however, the Honda Pilot benefits from its affordable price and unique distribution of features across the trim levels.

2021 Honda Pilot Vs 2021 Toyota Highlander

The 2021 Toyota Highlander is equipped with a 2.7-liter inline-four engine that makes just 185 hp and 184 lb-ft. of torque and is lower than the Honda Pilot. This power output isn’t good for a three-row SUV. The Toyota Highlander does offer a reliable drive but its ride quality falls short of the Honda Pilot. However, the competition becomes fair enough with the Highlander equipped with the V6 engine.

Toyota Highlander loses to Pilot’s value for money appeal in the lower trims. Considering the available options and value for the base model. It is also shy about safety and comfort features and does not offer an enjoyable drive like the Pilot. 

2021 Honda Pilot Final Verdict

If you need a 7 seater three-row SUV that is good on the performance front, drives well, is comfortable inside, the 2021 Honda Pilot is the SUV for you. However, it is one of the most valuable SUVs in the segment that offer practicality and great usability for its $32,250 starting price-tag.

Moreover, apart from other things, the V6 engine is absolutely refined and reliable making it a positive note for buyers.

Family SUV

Pros - "A versatile, roomy interior with spacious rear seats, Smooth and compliant ride in most conditions"

Cons - "Collision warning and adaptive cruise control are overly sensitive, Third-row access is narrow"

Twisty mountain roads don't pose a problem for the Pilot — this SUV feels more nimble than most. The steering is precise but offers little feel for the road. I am impressed by the Pilot's fuel-efficient and powerful engine and exceptional ride and seat comfort. EX-L trim provides the best value. A case can be made for the less expensive EX, smart use of space and practical features. The first and second rows are roomy. The third row is big enough for occasional use for adults, but it's not as spacious as Kia Telluride. The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration offers independent analysis of this car. I did find this trim very reliable as it is a value for money car.

Truly Elite

Pros - The 9 speed automatic transmission delivers smooth as well as powerful drive.

Cons - Horn has a disturbing and shrill noise.

The features in this trim showcase immense luxury whether they are related to safety and drive assist;classy interior;muscular exterior. Vehicle rides relatively smoothly when loaded with people and stuff. Honda Pilot offers more than usual in terms of pricing and warranty. Limited warranty covers three years or 36,000 miles. Powertrain warranty covers five years or 60,000 miles. No complimentary scheduled maintenance. For those who have a family of 8 this trim is truly elite as it offers a capacious 3rd row. LED accented headlights and three-spoke wheels from the Accord and the read-end wagon-like design. forward-collision warning and automated emergency braking lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist adaptive cruise control are standard features. I find this SUV a reliable car.

Pilot

Pros - Apple car play is really appreciated, good daily driver, driveability

Cons - The exterior design is not good, it looks outdated, lacks power

Sure. If I’m being honest Pilot is not the best-looking SUV in this price segment, it is not even close. It does not carry the best design compared to the options or its competitors. If the design was one of the main factors when I bought it, I would never have bought it. The reason I bought it was the driveability. It is as easy as a small car to drive.

Family SUV

Twisty mountain roads don't pose a problem for the Pilot — this SUV feels more nimble than most. The steering is precise but offers little feel for the road.
