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.

Honda’s Pilot three-row SUV was refreshed for 2019 and carries on for 2020 largely unchanged but with a new top-of-the-line Black Edition. That’s in addition to a $100 price bump for starting prices across the rest of the lineup, which is arriving at dealers now.
The 2017 Honda Pilot is the SUV you’ve been waiting for. With seating for 8, it’ll complement every family on any adventure.
