The well-known family hauler is about to receive a complete redesign. The new generation has been caught in testings a couple of times and it looks like it’s in the advanced stage of development. Of course, this redesign will bring a lot of novelties and that refers to all variants of the SUV, including the 2024 Honda Pilot Black Edition, which will once again sit at the top of the offer.
This version will adopt all the changes that are about to come with this redesign and, of course, it will also come with a number of exclusive design solutions and features. This particularly refers to the styling, which will once again feature lots of blacked details. On the other hand, the rest of the features shouldn’t be much different compared to other models in the lineup.
We expect to see the 2024 Pilot Black Edition sometime in the next year.
2024 Honda Pilot Black Edition Design
Design-wise, the 2024 Honda Pilot Black Edition will adopt all the changes of the upcoming redesign. Therefore, you may count on a much different design compared to the outgoing generation. First of all, we are about to see the new platform, which will be the same as in the case of the Acura MDX. Actually, the two models will have a lot of things in common, starting from the size. Just like the luxury sibling, the new Pilot will grow in size. It will gain 2.8 inches in wheelbase, while we count on an increase in overall dimensions as well.
Naturally, the new design will bring many other improvements, starting from the ride quality. We count on a completely new chassis and suspension setup. That should improve the ride quality, even though the current model is already pretty good in this aspect, especially when it comes to comfort and smoothness.
When it comes to exterior design, the 2024 Honda Pilot Black Edition will come with lots of exclusive styling solutions. Just like the current model, the new one will come with lots of blacked details, maybe even more. This refers to the grille, wheels and other parts around the vehicle.
On the other hand, the overall exterior design will adopt the redesign changes, starting from slightly bigger dimensions. Even though the test mule still wears camouflage, we can clearly see that the new model will look a little bit boxier. The new front end looks bolder and more aggressive, so we have no doubt that the 2024 Honda Pilot Black Edition will be more appealing than the current generation.
The same thing is with interior design. You may expect to see a couple of exlusive details, starting from the unique color scheme and materials. However, the overall cabin layout will be the same as in the rest of the lineup. Therefore, you may count on a new cabin design, with a more attractive dashboard, nicer materials, and notably improved build quality.
As we’ve just mentioned, the new generation will also get bigger, so we may expect to see improvements regarding passenger space, even though the current generation is still pretty respectable. We presume that the third row would provide a little bit more space. On the other hand, we wouldn’t expect to see a significant increase in cargo capacity, considering that the current model is already impressive in this aspect.
2024 Honda Pilot Black Edition Engine
According to the latest reports, the next-generation 2024 Honda Pilot Black Edition won’t feature significant changes under the hood. We expect that the new model will carry on with a good-old 3.5-liter V6. This super-smooth engine currently puts out 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque but we won’t be surprised if we see a slight power increase, to around 290 horsepower.
Also, we count on a new 10-speed automatic transmission, which will send power to the front in base versions, while the AWD will be available. We expect something like 20 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway, while the max towing capacity should go around 5.000 pounds.
Some sources also speculate about a plug-in hybrid version, which would be based on a 2.0-liter turbo-four engine. The officials are still quiet, so we presume this powertrain won’t be ready for the initial launch.
2024 Honda Pilot Black Edition Release Date and Price
We expect that the 2024 Honda Pilot Black Edition will hit the market next year, with a starting price of around 52.000 dollars.
