The Honda Pilot is a relatively new nameplate for the Honda lineup, compared to some of the other nameplates on the lineup – some of which have been around since the ‘70s. Even still, the Pilot has had 17 years to establish itself as an incredible option in the midsize utility vehicle class, even more so as it transitioned from a traditional SUV to a crossover in 2016. Now, we have the 2021 Honda Pilot available for you right here in Lima OH. The newest version of the three-row crossover has increased its value by shifting around some features and has also added a brand-new Special Edition trim level.
For the 2021 model year, the Honda Pilot has standardized its 9-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters and Idle Stop technology across the board. Dual-zone automatic climate control has also been made standard in all trim levels, while a new Platinum White Pearl color has been made available for the Black Edition trim level. But perhaps the most exciting thing about the 2021 Honda Pilot is its new Special Edition trim level.
The new Special Edition, or SE, trim level is built onto the EX-L trim level, which makes it the new middle trim between LX, EX, EX-L, Touring, Elite and Black Edition. In addition to everything that comes with the EX-L trim level, the SE trim adds 20” black wheels, roof rails, grille and ski garnishes in the front and rear, foot-activated hands-free access power tailgate, and wireless phone charging.
This exciting new trim level brings even more value to the middle of the pack, offering a few features and design cues that were formerly only available on top-tier trims. Regardless of trim level, though, you can rest assured you’ll be getting an outstanding option in the ever-popular three-row midsize crossover segment. If you have any questions about the new 2021 Pilot or if you’re interested in bringing one home for yourself, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us right here at White’s Honda Lima.
