Redesigned 2016 Honda Pilot Coming This Year


Honda has some vehicle reveals in store for 2015. 

Shortly after the new HR-V hits the market, “we’ll introduce an all-new Pilot SUV that will redefine what is possible with an eight-passenger midsize SUV,” John Mendel, executive vice president of Honda’s U.S. division told Edmunds. The new Pilot is supposed to be larger than the current one, though it will likely retain the same 3.5-liter V6 it uses today.

The Pilot isn’t the only new vehicle coming from Honda in the near future. “Further ahead, a completely reengineered Ridgeline pickup. And we have some more excitement on the passenger car side of our lineup this year as well.” It is still unknown whether the new Ridgline will be a 2016 model or a 2017. Based on teaser photos, the new small pickup from Honda appears to have a more traditional truck appearance than before.

As for its cars, Honda is getting ready to introduce a new turbocharged four-cylinder engine lineup which should be featured in at least one Honda vehicle before the end of 2015. A new electric car along with a plug-in hybrid model are also being added to Honda lineup by 2018 confirmed Mendel.
