Expert reviews: 

The 2020 Honda Pilot comes with front wheel drive, and all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 9-speed shiftable automatic, 6-speed automatic.No major changes for 2020.New top-line Black Edition trim level.

Pros

Ride is smooth and compliant in most conditions
Better fuel economy than rivals
Multiple clever storage compartments

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

For 2020, the Honda Pilot receives the mildest of updates. Along with a small price increase, the Pilot lineup adds a new range-topping model called the Black Edition. Honda fans will recognize that the same edition is available on the Ridgeline mid-size pickup truck. Likewise, the Pilot Black Edition has standard all-wheel drive, blacked-out exterior bits, and red interior accents.

Pros
Strong and efficient V-6, roomy and practical interior, plenty of available tech.

Cons
Clunky six-speed automatic transmission, minivan-like appearance, frustrating touchscreen.
