The third generation of the Honda Pilot was initially announced for 2015. However, the release date of this SUV was postponed for 2016. It will be completely redesigned and improved, so we can expect another excellent vehicle made by the Japanese carmaker. Changes include a refreshed design both inside and outside of the car, as well as improved fuel economy.
2016 Honda Pilot – Inside
The new Honda Pilot will borrow its platform from the Acura MDX, so these two cars will share many similarities. But, the exterior look of the Pilot is completely unique. The previous boxy shape will be replaced with a bigger and curvier body, made of lightweight materials, allowing better performance and fuel economy. There is a new grille on the front, as well as reshaped LED headlights and larger front bumper. Bigger dimensions will bring more space inside of the cabin and more cargo space. It will also feature new, luxurious upholstery, as well as all the latest technology improvements from Honda. Dashboard will feature a new LCD screen and better entertainment system. There will be three rows of seats, available to accommodate up to eight passengers.
2016 Honda Pilot – Engine
There were some rumors that the new Honda Pilot will get a new powertrain. But, it is more likely that it will be powered by the same 3.5 L V-6 engine which will be slightly more powerful with 310 hp. The power will be supplied on either two or all four wheels, according to the choice of the driver. The transmission also comes with two choices. CVT transmission, and six-speed gearbox. Improved engine and the use of lightweight materials will significantly improve the fuel economy.
2016 Honda Pilot – Release date
The 2016 Honda Pilot is expected to be debuted next fall, probably on the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show. As for the price, it should not cost much more than the current version. It is estimated that the price will range from $31,000 up to $43,000, depending on the trim level.
