2019 Honda Pilot

Consumer Guide Automotive Honda’s popular midsize crossover has long been a Consumer Guide Best Buy, and revisions to the freshened 2019 Pilot only serve to make it better.

As this is a “refresh” and not a redesign, the Pilot platform and appearance haven’t changed much. Oh, the grille is different – taking on what Honda deems as a “more rugged” demeanor to reflect Pilot’s admittedly good off-road prowess – but the vehicle still looks and drives like a Pilot … which is just fine.

2016 Honda Pilot Review

Honda’s Pilot midsize SUV is redesigned for 2016, with swoopier lines replacing the former boxy look. In the bargain, it received revised powertrains and numerous high-tech features. It is due to go on sale June 18 at a starting price of about $31,000.

Consumer Guide Automotive

Seems that Lincoln – once synonymous with luxury cars – is putting lots more focus on its luxury crossovers.

Lincoln has been completely redesigning its slate of SUVs of late, starting with the all-new full-size Navigator for 2018, followed by an update of the midsize MKX that was renamed Nautilus for 2019. Next came the midsize, 3-row Aviator – the subject of this report – which just went on sale as a 2020 model, soon to be joined by the new 2020 Corsair (based on the redesigned 2020 Ford Escape), which is the replacement for the compact MKC.
