The 2016 Honda Pilot has been officially introduced ahead of its public debut which will take at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show.

The third generation of the Honda Pilot is here as the carmaker has officially pulled the wraps off its body. The model in question is bringing a new look with a front fascia inspired by its smaller brother, the CR-V, with a large chrome grille, low fog lights and so on. The rear end is also different and it is adopting the more curved window, the roof spoiler and the LED boomerang taillights. The side profile of the car has a sloping roofline and longer rear doors.

The interior design has been also significantly updated compared to its predecessor and this one is looking more refined, adding features such as the two sunroofs, the glossy black accents, the redesigned multi function steering wheel, the large touch screen display for the infotainment system which is being flanked by the air vents, the USB connectivity, the Blu-ray player, a power outlet on the center of the dash and several other tweaks which should make the model even more appealing to its future customers.

According to the Japanese based automaker, the 2016 Honda Pilot will be able to carry up to 8 people and it has been developed in Los Angeles and Ohio, by Honda R&D Americas. The vehicle will be produced in Lincoln, Alabama, just like its predecessor. No technical specifications on the model have been released so far and these will be probably made public during the 201t Chicago Auto Show.
