We expect full redesign for 2016 Honda Pilot. That could happen for newly presented 2015 model, but looks like that rumors weren’t true, or they were, but Japanese carmaker did not get it in time to do everything until launch date. However, complete development is rescheduled and this model will be delayed for 2016 Honda Pilot. New SUV will be significantly changed. Company doesn’t want to confirm gossips or unveil any information about it, but according to many sources, 2016 Pilot is almost done deal. It will be changed, mostly in exterior design, while engine will probably remain the same.
2016 Honda Pilot platform
The 2016 Honda Pilot should continue to keep top space which Honda keeps for many years in mid-size SUV segment. Platform will be unchanged – we will have large interior for up to 8 passengers. This is main advantage of 2016 Pilot, but competition is also push hard to keep track and shred the gap between Pilot and their models. Boxy design will be modified, with new lines and curves adding some stylish look. This family crossover will be available in few trim levels. The 2015 year model has Special Edition trim, which is new for Pilot, and we still don’t know if this option will be continued. Other trims will be LX, EX, EX-L and Touring.
2016 Honda Pilot engine
Same engine as for current model will be placed under the hood of the 2016 Pilot. That will be 3.5-liter V6 engine capable to deliver 250 hp and 253 lb-ft of torque. Transmission system will be 5-speed auto and will send power to rear or all four wheels. Fuel economy is not among the best in its segment, with 18/25 mpg rate for city and highway ride. One mpg less will have all-wheel driven 2016 Honda Pilot.
2016 Honda Pilot release date and price
With delay of launch, we have no certain information when 2016 Honda Pilot could be launched. It could happen early in 2015. Not many things will be changed, so price should be still. Tag of $30.000 is start for base models of current Pilot, and top of the class models cost around $45.000 with AWD system used.
