The Honda Pilot enters the model year 2020 with an all-new Black Edition trim. The 2020 Honda Pilot Black Edition comes in at an MSRP of $49,620 and is based on the top-spec Elite model. But much like the Honda Ridgeline Black Edition, the Pilot Black Edition gets an exclusive Crystal Black Pearl paint job along with black 20-inch wheels, and blacked-out grille, headlight trim, side trim, door handles, and foglight accents.

Even the interior of the 2020 Pilot Black Edition features red highlights for the dash, doors, and center console. It is complemented by red contrast stitching on front- and second-row seats and floor mats. There's also Black Edition logos on the front grille, tailgate, and on front seats. Otherwise, the 2020 Honda Pilot carries over the same updates from the 2019 refresh without any changes.

"While the best crossovers and SUVs in this class have more style and drive better, the 2020 Honda Pilot still delivers the space and features that will satisfy most families." - CarAndDriver

The price of the 2020 Pilot starts at an MSRP of $31,550 excluding a $1,095 destination charge. It remains a best-seller in a segment dominated by other midsize three-row SUVs such as the Ford Explorer, Chevrolet Traverse, and the GMC Acadia. This is so because the Honda Pilot does most things right; it is powerful, refined, fuel-efficient, practical, and reliable, just what a family car should be. So, let's see what the 2020 Honda Pilot has to offer in this review.

The 2020 Honda Pilot is available primarily in six trim levels, namely LX, EX, EX-L, Touring, Elite, and Black Edition. While the lower trims get Front-Wheel-Drive as standard, the Elite and Black Edition trims get All-Wheel-Drive as a stand-alone choice. If one wants to opt for AWD in a lower trim, Honda offers it for an extra $2,000.

Standard features include 60/40 split seats for the third row, LED headlights, an 8-inch display screen from the EX trim onwards - base LX model has a 5.0-inch unit - and a rear-view camera.

In terms of the equipment list, the base LX trim of the 2020 Honda Pilot is quite barebones and spartan. However from the EX trim onwards, all models are very well equipped and on par with rivals in terms of luxury, fit and finish. If you want your 2020 Pilot to stand out, the Black Edition adds exclusivities like Crystal Black Pearl paint, trim-specific badges inside-out, and 20-inch black-painted alloy wheels.

2020 Honda Pilot Buying Advice

With the number of features on offer, we recommend going for the Touring trim, for it offers maximum bang for the buck proposition. Going for the available AWD setup is more practical, and one can also opt for second-row captain chairs for just $300 extra.

2020 Honda Pilot Engine and Performance

8.2/10

"Twisty mountain roads don't pose a problem for the Pilot - this large crossover feels lighter than most. There's little road feel from the steering, but it is precise." - Edmunds

For the 2020 model year, Honda has retained the existing engines, with an addition of an all-new trim. The 2020 Pilot gets a familiar 3.5-Liter naturally aspirated V6 engine, which churns out 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. For the lower trims, transmission duty is done by a six-speed automatic gearbox, while for the Touring, Elite and Black Edition trims, a ZF-sourced nine-speed automatic gearbox is deployed. When it comes to competition, the Pilot gets the wooden spoon for the power figures. Torque figures too are lower than most of the competition.

To add insult to the injury, one cannot take manual control of the gears in the models equipped with the 6-speed AT. That said, the power on tap is sufficient to move this large crossover, however, it totally lacks the grunt offered by the Explorer or the Traverse’s 310 hp V6 engine. The Pilot has is at par with the competition in terms of engine displacement, however, power figures are modest for the class, and the lowest among the rivals. Even the Ford Explorer with its 4-cylinder EcoBoost engine manages to churn 300 hp and 310 lb-ft torque. However, there is a big surprise for all!

At 6.2 seconds, the Pilot is the fastest from 0-60 mph sprint. In the quarter-mile timings too, the Pilot is the pick of the lot. This is mainly due to the lighter chassis and curb weight of the Pilot. And despite having the most powerful motor, the Traverse is one of the slowest both in 0-60 mph and quarter-mile runs, taking 7.1 seconds and 15.5 seconds respectively. Braking acts as a halo for a car boasting of capable performance, dynamics, and acceleration timings.

The front and rear brake rotors are 12.6 inches and 13.0 inches respectively, which are better than the others in the competition. Pair that with its lighter weight, and the Pilot stops from a speed of 60 mph in just 119 feet. But the Pilot is a car meant to carry your family in comfort, and this is where the suspension comes into play! Out on the freeways, the car is agile, however, darting into corners is not its forte. Cabin roll is evident, though not as much as some of the ladder-frame crossovers.

2020 Honda Pilot Fuel Economy

7.1/10

In a general context, Honda and good fuel economy are a match made in heaven. The Pilot, continuing this tradition, is a fairly fuel-efficient three-row SUV for its segment. With a combined fuel efficiency rating of 22 mpg, it falls behind only the Ford Explorer and GMC Acadia, which finally show the advantage of having a four-cylinder engine.

Despite making all that power and torque, the EcoBoost motor of the 2020 Explorer returns a combined mpg of 24. It also has a fairly large 17.9 gallons fuel tank, making up for 376 miles of range in the city and 501 miles out on the highways in a single fill-up. The Acadia isn't too far behind with 23 mpg combined either.

But with its even bigger 19-gallon gas tank, the GMC Acadia finishes in the first place with its 437 miles of combined range. With a 19.5-gallon fuel tank, the Pilot gives a combined range of 429 miles, which is 1 mile behind Ford Explorer. Who would have thought a Ford could defeat a Honda in the fuel efficiency race?

2020 Honda Pilot Interior

8.0/10

"As many as eight passengers can fit into the 2020 Pilot, thanks to its standard three rows of seating, with seven passenger models also available." - MotorTrend

The 2020 Honda Pilot is essentially an eight-seater, just like the Ford Explorer. However, with the option of captain chairs for the second-row, it can seat seven occupants. The Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia are seven-seaters by default. The cabin of the Pilot feels plush and well put together. On the other hand, it is not as good or luxurious as the Traverse’s but is miles ahead of the Acadia and Explorer. The front seats of the Pilot are supportive, with decent bolstering and cushioning on offer. In the lower trims, one will have to settle for the cloth upholstery, while opting for the top trims gets one leather upholstery.

Legroom and headroom at the front may look rudimentary if one refers to the numbers. However, being a smaller crossover than the rivals, Honda has proved that they are the masters of space management, and nobody even comes close to them. Seats in the front and second-row are comfortable and cushy, and one would feel at home in both these rows. However, the third row is best suited for small children, that too for short journeys. The Explorer, being the biggest SUV here, is expectedly the biggest on space as well, boasting of class leafing headroom and legroom in all three rows.

The Acadia falls short against all its rivals here and is definitely not the pick if space and comfort are one’s priorities. All trims of the 2020 Pilot, except base LX, come with an 8" touchscreen. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are also standard. There is also Sirius XM radio which will allow you to stream hundreds of radio channels via satellites.

The LX trim has 4 speakers while the EX trim comes with 6 speakers. The EX-L trim has a 180-watt audio system with 8 speakers while the top of the line fully-loaded Touring, Elite and Black Edition trims come with 330 watts premium audio system with 9 speakers. Other highlights of the 2020 Pilot's infotainment system include:

  • 5.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration
  • Higher trims get an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system
  • SiriusXM satellite radio
  • Radio Data System

"In any case, the Pilot is far from the best-looking SUV in its segment. No doubt, the Pilot is great at many things, but handsome it is not." - KBB

Let’s be blunt, the Pilot looks like a minivan and not a crossover. In this class, cars like the Traverse and Acadia provide the much-needed masculine look that one expects from a large crossover. The Pilot though is far from it and is not going to win any beauty contests. Dimensions-wise, it stands somewhere in the middle, with Traverse taking the podium for class-leading dimensions and wheelbase of 120.9 inches.

What has interests us the most is, this Honda has the shortest wheelbase in its class at 111.0 inches, but it is not surprising for a brand which is known for brilliant packaging and space maximization. In terms of looks alone, the Explorer looks most butch and imposing, while the Pilot, uh, looks like the MDX from the side? So just a glance at the vehicle and it’s easy to understand why the Pilot doesn’t look bad, despite the conservative styling.

Honda has played it safe, with purposeful-looking cuts and creases all over. However, to make the car stand out, one can always go for the 2020 Pilot Black Edition. Its 20-inch blackened alloy wheels and Crystal Black Pearl paint have given it subtle yet elegant touches to make it look a class apart. Some of the standout exterior features of the Pilot include the following:

  • LED Headlights
  • Panoramic Sunroof
  • Hands-Free Powered Liftgate
  • Roof Rails

2020 Honda Pilot Safety

9.3/10

Safety is one of the most important aspects of a car, and the 2020 Pilot totally lives up to expectations. The 2020 model year is loaded to the gills with safety features. Even the lower trims are very well equipped with Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver-assist technologies. While mandatory safety features  like seven airbags, traction and stability control, and a rear-view camera are present, the Pilot boasts of the following driver-assistance features as standard:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Forward Collision Warning with Automatic Braking 
  • Road Departure Mitigation 
  • Lane Keeping Assist
  • Automatic High-Beam Assist

Moving up to higher trim levels gets you additional safety features like Blind Spot Monitoring, Front and Rear Parking Sensors, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert System.

2020 Honda Pilot vs 2020 Chevrolet Traverse

Going by the specs alone, the Traverse appears to be a better car. Look beyond the numbers though and as a package, the Pilot comes out as a more practical and versatile product. The second row in the Pilot is more spacious and thus, more usable, and it is a similar story with the third row. The Pilot is also more efficient, not to mention the bullet-proof reliability that it brings along. Overall, the Traverse is a better car to drive, but the Pilot is a better package to own and live with.

2020 Chevrolet Traverse

2020 Honda Pilot vs 2020 Ford Explorer

Choosing just one car from these two is probably the toughest. While the Explorer is big, butch, and more practical, the Pilot is more car-like to drive and easier to live with. If Pilot gets a V6, the Explorer gets a smaller 4-cylinder engine. In exchange, the former offers better performance while the other is more economical. Not very Hond- or Ford-like, which is why it's tough to decide.

The new Honda Pilot is built on Japanese principles of quality, performance, efficiency, safety, durability, and reliability.

When it comes to safety, the 2020 Honda Pilot, starting at $31,550, comes with a host of driver-assistance features as standard and is easily one of the best cars.

Completely worth the price.

Pros - Features, seating capacity, powerful engine

Cons - Midling fuel economy, handfull in traffic, rear visibility

Perfect Honda. Got this baby back in 2019. The sticker price on it was about 38 grand then. Two years down and 26,000 miles on the clock; still looks and works like brand new! Really great place to buy a Honda! Can't forget Natalia for doing all the hardwork and getting my car delivered on time.

Honda let me down this time

Pros - N.A.

Cons - Facing a ton of issues

Completely let down by this car "I have been a fan of Honda for a long time and this year's Pilot has ruined the trust I had for the brand. There are a ton of electrical issues all throughout the car. Once I start the car drive some miles, the entertainment system completely shuts down and does not come back any soon. Also the speakers volume fluctuates, even when I do not change the settings. The backup camera stops suddenly and I am having various safety feature problems as well. Took it to the shop and the mechanics there said that the issue is caused by a breakdown in the electrical system. I would probably have to trade in the car pretty soon, as this simply cannot go on." "Not going to buy a car from here again. They just gave up any responsibility once the problems started and the head sales person at the place is quite rude to begin with. Went to this place as I heard it was a dedicated Honda dealership and will not be making that mistake again."

My family SUV!

Pros - Strong V6 engine. Plenty of room. Great features list.

Cons - Clunky gearshifts. Frustrating touchscreen.

Great for families! I really liked the Pilot despite the few haggles. Its been almost a year now with about 6500 miles on the odo. The best bit about the Pilot is that its has been really spacious for my familuy. The kids love it in the backseat even on the ISOFIX mounted seats. The cargo space is really better for a family SUV. Although the engine feels quite powerful, driving the Pilot doesn't seem a lot smoother. The gearshifts tend to be a bit clunky in almost all gears. Also, the touchscreen on the infotainment is a bit fussy which requires a bit of pressure than normal. Despite both the issues, I feel the Pilot passes off easily as a practical family car! During my first service, I requested repetedly to check the jerking issue. They casually wrote me off saying it's "normal' on the Pilot. they looked into the issue onbly after I took my complaint with Honda!
