The 2015 Chicago Auto Show will open its doors in February and as expected, carmakers will bring new models. One of the premiere from the Chicago Auto Show will be the all-new 2016 Honda Pilot SUV. The Japanese manufacturer officially confirmed the new eight-passenger SUV, said that it will be completely reengineered, redesigned and manufactured in America.
Moreover, the 2016 Pilot promises to raise the stake in the mainstream three-row SUV segment. Set to arrive at the US dealerships this summer, the 2016 Pilot SUV will show a dramatic shift in design, but will also showcase standout technologies.
For those who don’t know, the first Honda Pilot was introduced back in 2002 as the first mainstream 8-passenger SUV that featured a car-like unitized body construction and refined driving dynamics.
The second-generation arrived in 2008. All the three generations were designed and developed by Honda R&D Americas.
"Honda continues to fortify its light-truck lineup in 2015, this time turning our eye to the fast-growing family SUV segment," said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda Division. "The new Pilot will raise the bar in a segment it helped to create, with more innovation, style, premium features and family utility than ever before."
