Freshen 2018

The 2019 freshened version of the eight-passenger crossover, which went on sale on July 16, comes with a more aggressive look. It adopts styling cues from the latest Accord sedan and Odyssey minivan. The changes include a retooled lower front fascia, new grille and revised LED headlights. Honda also plans a plug-in hybrid version of the crossover, new spy photos indicated this summer. It would be the fourth electrified vehicle in Honda's lineup, joining the Accord Hybrid, Clarity and Insight.

Addition 2022

The Pilot's hybrid setup is expected to be a version of the two-motor hybrid powertrain used in the 2018 Accord Hybrid. U.S. sales are up 40 percent through June. A hybrid version may appear as a 2023 model.
