A new vision for the 2023 Honda Pilot

The Honda Pilot should be undergoing some radical changes for the 2023 model year. Although Honda hasn’t divulged any precise details to date, the publication of several camouflaged spy shots leads us to believe that there are plans to give the silhouette of this family SUV a major overhaul.


If the images are accurate, the new 2023 Pilot will feature a more massive, redesigned grille. This hints at the automaker’s intention to abandon the rounded appearance the vehicle has featured in recent years in favor of a return to the muscular, athletic appearance of earlier generations.


Simply based on the few available photos, it’s difficult to predict whether the rear end will undergo the same treatment. However, a careful examination reveals a more substantial bumper.

The mechanics of the 2023 Honda Pilot

Since Honda is still very sparing with any comments regarding the new 2023 Honda Pilot, we can only suppose that it will feature the same 3.5 L 280 hp V6 engine found in the current model.


If this turns out to be the case, the engine, combined with an automatic transmission as it is currently, will be capable of going from 0 to 100 km/h in approximately seven seconds and will offer a towing capacity of 5,000 pounds. Alternatively, the new Honda SUV might feature the 10-speed transmission utilized in the Odyssey minivan.


We still don’t know if the new TrailSport version, which is more geared toward off-roading, will still be part of the lineup.

A revised cabin for the 2023 Honda Pilot

Like other vehicles in the Honda family, the new 2023 Honda SUV will likely boast a rejuvenated passenger compartment with new features and a revamped infotainment system. The available images of the prototype, in fact, give a glimpse of a more imposing central touchscreen.


When it comes to safety, we can assume that the new Honda Pilot will include the Honda Sensing suite of technologies found in the current model. It offers driver assist features ranging from the Collision Mitigation Braking System and Lane Keeping Assist System to Adaptive Cruise Control and more.


The official release of the 2023 Honda Pilot is imminent. In the meantime, if you’d like to learn more, you can consult the experts at Lallier Honda.
