Chicago Auto Show: 2016 Honda Pilot image

The third generation of the Honda Pilot has been officially introduced at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show.

Following an online reveal, the 2016 Honda Pilot has also made its public debut during the 2015 Chicago Auto Show, where the carmaker has pulled the wraps off its body. The model has a new look, with a front fascia that looks inspired by the CR-V, low fog lights and a large chrome grille. The rear end has been also redesigned and it is bringing the boomerang LED taillights, the roof spoiler and the more curved window while the side of the vehicle has longer rear doors and a sloping roofline.

In the cabin we can find the glossy black accents, the new multi function steering wheel, the two sunroofs, the large touch screen display for the infotainment system flanked by the air vents, the power outlet on the center of the dash, the USB connectivity, Blu-ray play and the over-all more refined looks. Honda says that under the hood of the 2016 Pilot a 3.5 liter i-VTEC V6 engine has been added, with idle stop technology and the VCM (Variable Cylinder Management), which can improve gas mileage, connected to a six-speed automatic transmission, offered as standard, or to a new 9-speed automatic gearbox, available for more expensive versions. The 2016 Honda Pilot will be assembled in Lincoln, Alabama, and it will be able to carry up to 8 people. Pricing details remain unknown at this time.
