2021 Honda Pilot Price Up $600, Standard 9-Speed Automatic Added

  • For 2021, the Honda Pilot now comes standard with a nine-speed automatic transmission.
  • The Pilot also gains a new Special Edition (SE) trim level that will slot in between the EX and Touring trims.
  • The 2021 Pilot is now available in Honda dealerships.

Until now, Honda Pilot buyers had to opt up to the Touring or Elite trim levels to get the excellent nine-speed automatic transmission; the lower trims had a six-speed. Not anymore; for 2021, a nine-speed automatic now comes standard across the Pilot lineup, beginning with the $33,370 entry-level LX. That starting price is a $600 jump from the outgoing model year.

Paddle shifters, dual-zone climate control, and a stop-start system have also been made standard for 2021. This coming year, the Pilot also sees the addition of a Special Edition (SE) trim between the EX and Touring trim levels, which starts at $40,080. The SE builds on the EX and includes black 20-inch wheels, a foot-activated power tailgate, and a wireless charger. The price of adding all-wheel drive to any of the trims has increased by $100 to $2000.

Across the rest of the trims, price increases vary from around $300 to $500, as Honda didn’t make any major changes to the SUV. The V-6 engine, which generates 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque, remains on the Pilot.

The 2021 Pilot is available now at dealers.
