2016 Honda Pilot: All-new model takes flight

The all-new 2016 Honda Pilot looks and feels very different from its predecessor. However, it wasn’t until I drove the highly-regarded 2nd-generation 2015 Pilot back-to-back with the new 3rd-generation 2016 Pilot that the new model’s numerous updates – especially to its driving character – became stunningly apparent. On sale this summer, the eight-passenger family SUV has been redesigned and reengineered with changes that have been led by the “voice of the customer”, said Honda, with fresh exterior and interior styling, many of the car world’s latest features, increased value and improved fuel economy. Honda’s flagship three-row sport ute has been developed and manufactured in the U.S.

This mid-sized crossover was introduced in 2003 and received high praise as the first vehicle in its class with a car-like, unibody platform, and independent suspension. It set industry standards for fuel efficiency, packaging and cargo-carrying, safety and sporty handling and has found a home with some 1.4 million buyers. The newest Pilot raises the bar with more premium attributes, new powertrains and a host of new technologies, along with the most advanced safety features ever, including the Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies, with lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring (like Honda’s innovative LaneWatch system, which uses a camera to display the passenger-side blind spot when the turn signal is activated), adaptive cruise control, forward-collision mitigation braking and lane-keeping assist. Pilot shares its underpinnings with the Acura MDX luxury SUV, and with fortified frame rails, all-new AWD system and modest ground clearance, it is capable for light off-road use and can tow up to 5,000 lbs.
