Honda is planning to unveil the next generation Pilot SUV at the upcoming Detroit Auto Show. Well the car will only be a concept/prototype but insiders say it will basically be the next Pilot.
The prototype Pilot will feature a redesign, emphasizing “clever interior packaging,” as well as safety, fuel efficiency and convenience technologies, according to a press release by North American Honda. It will showcase a lot of new forward thinking ideas.
Honda assembles the Pilot at its Lincoln, Alabama, plant. Through November, the automaker produced 110,181 Pilots in Alabama and the model has been a steady seller. But overall Pilot production in North America is down because Honda ended production of the vehicle in it’s Alliston, Ontario plant.
The new Pilot should be a hit with the same crowd that bought the old one.
