By featuring the latest MDX extra 3.0 inches in length in the wheelbase than its predecessor, we might see a wheelbase of 2016 Pilot is growing as well. This should translate to more room inside and easier access to the third row. Seating for eight must remain.
Power will once again come from the 3.5-liter V-6 but with output increased to 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque, matching the number of machines in MDX. Buyers will have a choice of front or all-wheel drive.
A shot that shows the interior of a rectangular vents reveal new, not a unit circular current model. It also looks like the current model of the dash-mounted gear lever is making way for a more conventional shifter, and new LCD screen will be mounted to the center stack.
Some rumors say that it is possible that new Honda Pilot get a new powertrain. However, it is more likely that new Honda Pilot will be powered with the same 3.5-liter V6 unit. This engine will be slightly more powerful (310 horsepower) than the current one. New Honda Pilot will have front wheels or optionally all-four-wheels-drive system. Engine will be mated with six-speed automatic gearbox or CVT transmission. Fuel economy is improved with improvement of engine and by using lightweight materials.

Exterior design will be one of the main differences between new Honda Pilot and previous models. New curves were announced, so previous boxy look will be partly dropped. Anyway, 2016 Pilot will keep well-known look, but with new rounder shape it will be more attractive. Also, interior will suffer some changes. Comfort and enjoy of the ride will be boosted with new upholstery, materials used for equipping the cabin and infotainment features. Space in the cabin will be enlarged, so passengers will have more leg and head-room. Also, new materials will be used for architecture, which will make 2016 Honda Pilot lose some weight comparing to previous vehicles. All these changes could make new Pilot one of the best SUV in the class.
