|All-new 2016 Honda Pilot redesign|
2016 Honda Pilot Specs2016 Honda Pilot is powered by a new 3.5L V6 with direct-injection VTEC model which has generated significant power and performance. Despite it's still going in the same version, but Honda promises for better and higher performance. The current V6 has brought out 250 horsepower and 253 pound-feet of torque, while the new Pilot is expected to generate over 300-hp and 260 lb-ft. It adopts a new 9-speed automatic transmission (upper trims) as a new wheel-drive system, combined with weight reduction is applied to boost excellence. While the standard version will likely come in 6-speed transmission. More spacious room for 8 passengers is carefully re-modified and yet still appears in a slender shape. It's constructed on a new chassis which gives about 3-to-4" extended length and generates wider rear seats. That style of chassis has also been implemented in the 2016 Acura MDX concept.

2016 Honda Pilot FeaturesSadly, the third-generation Pilot will be left-behind in terms of current technologies for both safety and personal features. Honda seems not to guarantee the new Pilot will feature trending amenities like lane keeping aid, adaptive cruise control, blind spot alert and even a lane departure warning. Aside from its lacks, the 2016 Pilot will still offer refined interior arrangements oriented in a more attractive design with upscale materials.
As we have noticed at the beginning, the longer new chassis should refine the rear seats to be more acceptable for a crossover. Its low-mounted seats provides more space for passengers' legs. New stuff Pilot offers is a captain-seating style in the middle-row seats.
