Before we get into the SE trim level, we wanted to highlight a few great changes that are coming to the rest of the Honda Pilot family. For starters, the 9-speed automatic transmission system featuring paddle shifters as well as the dual-zone climate control system are both standard across the board now. Additionally, the Black Edition trim level is now available in Platinum White Pearl. As for the SE trim level, it’s built onto the EX-L trim and adds 20” black wheels and matching roof rails, grille and skin garnishes in the front and rear, as well as a foot-activated hands-free access power tailgate and wireless phone charging.
