2021 Honda Pilot Release Date & Available Trim Levels
There’s going to be a new Honda Pilot for the 2021 model year, with a few enhancements coming to the midsize crossover utility vehicle. For starters, the 9-speed transmission, paddle shifters and Idle Stop features will be standard across the board for the updated vehicle, while dual-zone automatic climate control has been added to the LX trim level. Perhaps the most exciting news ahead of the vehicle’s release date, however, is the introduction of a new Special Edition (SE) trim level.

The new trim level adds several design cues to the EX-L trim level upon which it’s built, such as black roof rails, grille, skid plate garnishes in the front and rear and 20” wheels. The trim level also adds a few features, including the foot-activated hands-free access power tailgate and wireless phone charging.
