How much more black can the 2020 Honda Pilot Black Edition be? None more black
Honda should have gone all-in and painted it Vantablack. You can’t get a speeding ticket if light is incapable of reflecting back to a police officer’s laser, after all.
Murdered-out cars, as people often like to call them, are basically painted as dark as possible in as many areas as possible. While it’s always been a popular idea with people who like car customization, it’s a growing factory option as automakers try to align with everyone’s tastes. The latest entry in this field takes a darker approach to a traditional three-row family crossover.
Honda on Monday unveiled the 2020 Honda Pilot Black Edition. Living at the top of the lineup and borrowing most of its kit from the formerly tip-top Pilot, the Black Edition focuses on improving the car’s aesthetics — there don’t appear to be any equipment upgrades that aren’t also present on the Pilot Elite.
On the outside, the Pilot Black Edition is available in one paint color — Crystal Black Pearl. It wears 20-inch alloy wheels finished in black, and there are chrome-removing “blackout” parts in the grille, headlight trim, door handles, window trim, fog light accents and side trim. As you might expect, there are also a pair of Black Edition badges on the tailgate and grille, because a model is only good if it comes with a badge.
