2016 Honda Pilot – These Are The First Official Photos!

Breaking news – the all-new, third generation 2016 Honda Pilot has made its appearance on the web on the eve of the 2015 Chicago Auto Show.

These official photos, which come courtesy of Edmunds, reveal Honda’s new, more Acura-like styling direction for their mid-size crossover that looks less utilitarian and more modern and upmarket – both inside and out, than the outgoing Pilot.

One feature that remains from the previous model is the new Pilot’s ability to chauffeur up to eight passengers in three rows of seats.

According to Honda, “the new Pilot represents a dramatic shift in design, while showcasing new standout technologies, versatility, and dynamics currently unavailable in the mainstream SUV segment”.

For more details we’ll likely have to wait for Honda’s press conference in Chicago tomorrow morning.

It’s worth noting that the 2016 Pilot likely previews the styling of the upcoming 2016 Ridgeline pickup truck as well.
