2025 Honda Pilot Gets a New High-End Black Edition – Kelley Blue Book

The 2025 Honda Pilot looks significantly more expensive than the 2024 model in web searches, but that’s mostly an illusion. Honda has snipped the least-expensive trim from the lineup and added a new, more expensive, high-end version. In the middle trims, where most people shop, prices haven’t changed much.

With its smaller 18-inch wheels (every other trim gets 20-inch models) and manually adjustable driver’s seat, the 2024 Honda Pilot LX is this year’s budget model, starting at $38,485 (including the mandatory $1,395 destination fee). Honda has apparently decided its flagship 3-row SUV shouldn’t have a budget model. The LX disappears from the lineup for 2025.

The company did the same thing with the CR-V small SUV last year and then quickly brought the LX trim back. A ridiculous quirk of car shopping today is that low-end base models often exist to make a car’s base price look lower in web searches — even if dealers don’t always stock them and few people buy them.

The Pilot gets a new high-end model for 2025. The Black Edition, Honda says, gets a “more aggressive look that includes Gloss Black 20-inch alloy wheels, a Gloss Black grille bar and upper side mirror housings, blackout treatments for the front fascia ducts, window trim, door garnishes and rear bumper garnish, plus Black Edition badges on the grille and tailgate.”

The interior of the 2025 Honda Pilot Black Edition

Inside, red contrast-color stitching helps it look sportier, and red accent lighting completes the look. The Black Edition comes only in all-wheel drive (AWD) and starts at $55,675.
