2016 Honda PilotAvailable soon at Middletown Honda in NY, the 2016 Honda Pilot redesign promises phenomenal performance for Mechanicstown drivers. Introduced at the Chicago Auto Show, the new model has dropped 300 pounds from its predecessor by employing advanced construction methods, and it offers a wealth of upgrades.

Design

The style of the 2016 Honda Pilot complements its cutting-edge construction by crafting a vehicle that is at once practical, captivating, and modern. Designed to accommodate the modern American family even while turning heads on the street, the new design is both sleek and muscular.

Automatic high-beam LED headlights and a new panoramic roof option help define the exterior, while the cabin can now boast two second-row captain’s chairs for easy access to the rear. Enriching the model’s reputation for exceptional interior space, the new Pilot adds 3.5 inches to the length of the vehicle, allowing for more cargo space than ever before.

Powertrain

The 2016 Honda Pilot redesign doesn’t just make it look better than better than ever — it also drives better, and it does so without sacrificing efficiency. You’ll now find an advanced 3.5L direct-injected V6 engine beneath the hood that will give the new Pilot exceptional power and driving dynamics.

The previous model came with 5-speed automatic transmission as standard, but the 2016 model will be fitted with 6-speed automatic. Upper trim levels will be able to take advantage of nine-speed automatic — a first for Honda vehicles.

Fuel Economy

At our Middletown, NY Honda dealership, we expect the 2016 Pilot to live up to the standards of the previous model by providing phenomenal efficiency. Stop-start technology will be used in the Pilot for the first time, shutting off the engine as soon as the vehicle is stopped before instantaneously bursting to life when the driver’s foot leaves the brake. Honda has been tight-lipped about the exact numbers, but Mechanicstown drivers should keep checking back to learn more about the efficiency of the 2016 Pilot.
