Meet the Redesigned 2019 Pilot

Meet the Redesigned 2019 Pilot

The redesigned and refreshed 2019 Honda Pilot has a long list of upgrades to Honda’s award-winning 8-seat SUV. The numerous changes include more aggressive exterior styling, an available new hands-free power tailgate, substantial powertrain refinements, major upgrades to available connected-car technology, an available new Display Audio touchscreen system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, and a volume knob. The 2019 Pilot also adopts the Honda Sensing suite of advanced driver-assistive and safety technology as standard in all trims. The 2019 Pilot LX with standard front-wheel drive carries a starting Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP1 ) of $31,450 (excluding $995 destination and handling).

While all Pilot trim levels benefit from refreshed styling, technical upgrades and new features-including newly standard Honda Sensing-the popular EX trim extends its value story even further as it gains several premium features while maintaining the same price point as the outgoing EX w/ Honda Sensing trim.

Combined, the upgrades to Pilot reinforce its capabilities while emphasizing the state-of-the-art technology and family-friendly character that has made it one of the most popular midsize 3-row SUVs. Pilot also remains one of the few models in its segment to offer 8 seats (7-seats with the optional second-row Captain’s Chairs), with three-person capacity in both the second and third rows, and with third row access made simple and easy by the available One-Touch Walk-In feature.

All 2019 Pilots feature more aggressive front and rear styling to compliment the Pilot’s robust off-road and all-weather driving capabilities, supported by Honda’s available intelligent Variable Torque Management system (i-VTM4) with true torque-vectoring. Standard on all AWD trims, i-VTM4 uses an electronically-controlled, hydraulically-actuated rear differential to apportion engine torque between the front and rear axles, and dynamically distribute torque between the left and right rear wheels. The benefits are superior all-weather handling, and neutral, accurate steering under power.

In addition, the 2019 Pilot’s 9-speed automatic transmission, available in Touring and Elite trims, gets new tuning for enhanced drivability and smoother shifts, while Pilot’s Idle Stop system now provides quicker restarts and more seamless operation.

For 2019, all Pilot models come standard with the Honda Sensing suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies. Honda Sensing helps provide greater awareness of driving conditions around the vehicle, and in some cases helps drivers maintain lane position. Comprising the Honda Sensing suite are Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) with Forward Collision Warning; Road Departure Mitigation (RDM); Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS); and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC).

Honda’s blind spot information system (BSI), previously available only on the Elite trim, is now standard on EX, EX-L and Touring trims as well. Additionally, Rear Cross Traffic Monitor has been expanded from the Touring and Elite trims to EX and EX-L.

In addition to the above, Pilot offers numerous other driver-assistive features, such as automatic high beams and a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera, both standard on all trims. The new Pilot was designed to provide a high level of active and passive safety protection and targets a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

How to Get Coffee Stains Out of Your Floor Mats

How to Get Coffee Stains Out of Your Floor Mats

Starting your day with a nice cup of coffee is great. Hitting the brakes and spilling it on the carpeting, not so much.

Step 1:
Soak up as much of the spill as possible, as quickly as possible, using a clean towel. Apply pressure from the palm of your hand or fist to absorb as much of the liquid as possible.

Step 2:
If your coffee was black, or contained no milk, Autoblog.com suggests mixing a solution of 1/3 white vinegar to 2/3 water in a spray bottle. Spray the mixture onto the stain and blot again with a clean towel.

Step 3:
Let the vinegar mixture soak for a few minutes.

Step 4:
Lightly rinse with cold water.

Step 5:
Using a new towel, blot the area again until it is dry.

If you drink your coffee with milk, you’ll need to complete an extra step in this process. According to Autoblog.com, prior to applying the vinegar mixture to the stain, you should first use a spray bottle to apply a mixture of a teaspoon of enzyme detergent and a cup of water. Allow that to sit for 10 to 15 minutes. Then, using a towel, blot up the spot and use a light brush agitation if needed. This extra step helps to break up the protein stain from the milk.
