Hello everyone. My current Pilot lease is about to end. I have a 2018 EX-L AWD Pilot. I installed an OEM Honda tow hitch on my own. Planning on upgrading to the 2021 EX-L Pilot. Would I be able to use that same tow hitch on the 2021 model? Thanks in advance

You might want to rethink that whole premise:



Looks the same and are the same can often not be the same.

I believe newer models have foot luggage or back up sensors. But that is probably just a harness difference. My tekonsha harness came with the plug, I just didnt need it

Yes it's compatible but the difference in part number is for the trim that needs to be installed. I was driving a 2017 and upgraded to a 2019 and because of the number I didn't swapp it over. After finding out that all the parts were the same I could have just bought the trim i was kicking myself. Now I upgraded again to the 2021 and i swapped everything over. If you upgrade to the foot sensor tailgate you will need the additional harness.
