This new top-of-the-line model hits dealerships tomorrow.
Another year, and another murdered out family hauler hits the dealerships for sale. We’ve already seen it with the likes of the Chrysler Pacifica’s S Appearance Package, and cars like the Toyota Highlander and 4Runner Nightshade Editions. Now it’s the turn of the 2020 Honda Pilot with this special, top-of-the-range Black Edition. As you can guess, the gist behind this special edition trim is its sinister look — at least as sinister as a three-row SUV can be — and a higher price tag.
At $50,715 including the $1,095 destination package, the 2020 Honda Pilot Black Edition is a big ask over the standard $32,645 Pilot LX. This one is basically an Elite trim, which only comes with Honda’s Intelligent Variable Torque Management (i-VTM4) all-wheel drive system. On top of the standard equipment you get in the Elite, you get 20-inch gloss black wheels, as well as black seats and blacked-out accents, both on the exterior and interior. Honda does add in a little variety on the inside with red accent lighting, as well as red stitching on the seats, door panels and steering wheel.
The standard tech in the 2020 Honda Pilot Black Edition includes an 8.0-inch infotainment display, for a start. You get Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support, as well as Honda’s CabinTalk in-car PA system. This model also comes with wireless phone charging, 4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity and a hands-free power tailgate. Honda Sensing, with all its driver assistance features like automatic emergency braking, comes standard across the whole 2020 Pilot range. Thanks to Wi-Fi, you can also get HondaLink, a subscription service that allows for things like Amazon Key In-Car Delivery.
Would you pay that price?
If spending over $50,000 for a Black Edition is too rich for your blood, the other Pilot trim levels remain for 2020. Prices start at $32,645 for the front-wheel drive LX, rising through EX, EX-L (with or without navigation), Touring and Elite. All-wheel drive is optional on all trims except the Elite and Black Edition.
