The new generation of the eight-passenger SUV Pilot has just unveiled by Honda, adopting a new front fascia with a three-bar grille and redesigned headlights.

Honda says that the new Pilot has improved fuel efficiency on the two-wheel drive, burning 18 mpg in city and 25 mg on the highway, compared to the all-wheel drive models that are consuming 18 mpg in city and 25 mpg on the highway.

According to the automaker, the 2012 Pilot is powered by a 3.5 liter V6 engine, delivering 250 horsepower and 343 Nm of torque (253 lb-ft), mated to a five-speed automatic transmission with Grade Logic Control, a system that helps maintain the most appropriate gear when going uphill or downhill, avoiding “gear hunting”.

The new generation of the Honda Pilot is coming in four trim levels, the Pilot EX, the Pilot EX-L, the Pilot EX-L with Navigation and the top-of-the-line Pilot Touring, being priced at $28.470 for the entry-level version, which comes nicely equipped with power windows and locks, keyless entry, seven-speaker audio system and front and rear air conditioning.
