2016 Honda Pilot

The 2016 Honda Pilot has been teased ahead of its scheduled premiere set to take place in February at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show.

Reengineered and redesigned 2016 Honda Pilot

According to Honda, the all-new third generation eight-passenger Pilot SUV is going to be “completely reengineered and redesigned, as well as raise the stakes in the mainstream three-row SUV segment with new technology, advanced safety, and class-leading fuel economy.”

Honda is not saying much about the model at this point, however it’s mentioned that the new Pilot will be more appealing than the outgoing model, promising a “dramatic shift in design” also remaining true to its “family-friendly” approach.

Rumours have suggested that the SUV will be fitted with a V6 3.5-litre direct-injection engine with the latest array of Earth Dreams technologies and an estimated output of 231 kW.

Just like the outgoing model, the 2016 Honda Pilot has been developed by Honda R&D Americas in Los Angeles and Ohio, and will be manufactured in Lincoln, Alabama and is set to go on sale this summer.

Expect more details when it finally debuts on February 12 at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show.
