2016 Honda Pilot Design

These are the latest spy shots of a prototype for Honda’s next-generation Pilot SUV, which should roll into showrooms in the fall of 2015, as a 2016 model. The vehicle will once again share its underpinnings with the Acura MDX but this time around we can expect more expressive styling and a more upmarket interior.

The current Pilot has existed in more or less the same basic form since 2009, with its only update coming in the 2012 model year, when Honda stripped the SUV of its bizarre-looking “cyborg” grille treatment. Nearly six years ago, the Pilot literally drove away from the competition, having had a considerable head-start on most three-row-crossover competitors. Just about everyone has now abandoned the truck-based body-on-frame format for the lighter and more carlike crossover blueprint, and Honda’s edge in the segment has dulled. Having placed dead last in its most recent comparison test, the Pilot needs to re-establish Honda as the go-to brand for three-row, mid-size crossovers.

Rumors about new Honda Pilot were telling that model will appear in 2015. However, with big plans for it, now it is clear that Japanese manufacturer needed more time to finish all work on it, so we will see 2016 Honda Pilot redesign SUV. Changes are more than modest. We heard a lot of rumors, but company still keeps all info as secret. The 2016 Honda Pilot redesign will hit mostly exterior parts, since we will probably see brand new vehicle, also the cabin. However, engine range is about to remain the same as for current model.

Only a handful of details are visible through the Pilot’s camouflage, but from what we can see, the SUV’s styling will incorporate a mix of new and old cues. The taillights appear to mimic the squarish units on today’s model, while the headlights have morphed into sleek, horizontal, Accord-like pieces. From where we sit, it looks like there’s maybe one grille opening too many on the front end, but we’ll need to wait for the camouflage to come off to pass final judgment. One thing’s for sure: The outgoing Pilot’s Automoblox look is dead and gone. It should for the first time in a while, carry a familial resemblance to Honda’s smaller CR-V compact and HR-V subcompact crossovers.

2016 Honda Pilot Price

Pricing for the new 2016 Honda Pilot has been set at $30,700 – $35,000 based on current exchange rates. If there are changes on the 2016 Honda Pilot we will notify you as soon as possible, so keep follow our blog.

Provided the bodywork beneath these Pilots’ coverup is production-ready (or close to it), we can expect the 2016 Pilot to debut quite soon. The Los Angeles auto show in the fall would line up nicely with an on-sale date in early 2015. Given the competitive nature of the mid-size-crossover segment, don’t expect any upward movement on the Pilot’s current $30,700 base price.

With the latest MDX featuring an extra 3.0 inches of length in its wheelbase compared to its predecessor, we’ll likely see the 2016 Pilot’s wheelbase grow as well. This should translate to more space inside and easier access to the third row. Seating for eight should remain.

When we are talking about 2016 Pilot redesign of the model, we must start from stuff which will be carried over. Same platform is used for architecture of the crossover. The 2016 Honda Pilot will be again vehicle for 8 passengers. Also, same trim levels are the same LX is base models, EX is more equipped, but still not as EX-l and Touring models which are top of the line vehicles. However, Special Edition of current model is not in plans for 2016 Honda Pilot redesign. What will be changed is exterior look. New 2016 Honda Pilot has less boxy appearance with new curves, especially of the hood, windshield and rear end of the crossover. Interior is equipped with latest tech and infotainment systems. Safety is also improved with  new rearview camera which will come standard on all trims. Side-curtain bags cover all three rows and electronic stability control will ease the drive of 2016 Honda Pilot.

A shot showing the interior reveals new rectangular vents instead of the current model’s circular units. It also looks like the current model’s dash-mounted gear lever is making way for a more conventional shifter, and a new LCD screen will be mounted to the center stack.

When it comes to transmissions, however, Honda might have a slew of choices from the Honda/Acura parts bin. The Pilot most likely will get the same six-speed automatic used by the Accord V-6. On the other hand, fuel-economy requirements are getting tougher, so the ZF-built nine-speed automatic from the 2015 Acura TLX V-6 sedan should be mighty tempting for Honda product planners. In that car, the transmission bolts up to you guessed it the Accord’s 3.5-liter V-6. The only hitch is that Acura could potentially claim the ZF ’box for itself: The brand had to pony up serious money to tweak the ubiquitous Honda V-6 block to accept the ZF transmission in the TLX. But any opportunity to amortize those costs over more vehicles (such as the Pilot) would make sense.

Power will once again come from a 3.5-liter V-6 but with output increasing to 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque, matching the figures of the engine in the MDX. Buyers will have the choice of front- or all-wheel drive.

Actually, 2016 Honda Pilot redesign won’t hit powertrain range. Same option is carried over from current model. It is 3.5-liter V6 mated to 5-speed automatic transmission. This drivetrain is good to deliver 250 hp and 253 lb-ft of torque. Rear-wheel drive is standard, while AWD comes as optional. Estimated mileage is slightly improved comparing to previous model. Now it says 2016 Honda Pilot will go 18 mpg in city and 25 mpg on highway.
