New 2019 Honda Pilot Elite Overview

The 2019 Honda Pilot Elite has a lot going for it, including a hybrid model, but you’d be wise to cross-shop its rivals as well. Additional new features for the 2019 Honda Pilot Elite include a heated steering wheel, and optional heated and power operated front seats on lower-trim models with cloth upholstery. Front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is optional. In addition to the gas-only model, the 2019 Honda Pilot Elite is also available as a hybrid with all-wheel drive as standard.

 2019 Honda Pilot Elite Redesign and Price

 2019 Honda Pilot Elite New Release

The car is the only 2019 Honda Pilot Elite trim level that can be had with a cool two-tone exterior color scheme. The ride itself was smooth, and road imperfections were barely felt.”
