Default Honda Pilot

Early look: Honda Pilot prototype

December12

Honda has released a sketch of its Pilot prototype ahead of the SUV's debut at the Detroit Auto Show in January. Like the automaker did last year with the Accord Coupe Concept, look for the Pilot prototype to be very close to the production model.

No details were released with the sketch, but next-generation Pilot will take on a more rugged SUV look. Honda says the Pilot "will emphasize authentic SUV styling, clever interior packaging and advanced technologies for safety, fuel efficiency and convenience."

The Pilot's eight-passenger seating is expected to be retained in the next iteration.

Spy photographers spotted a Pilot prototype out testing earlier this year.

This is a very sane and sensible design with a note of Suburban/Tahoe in it. It looks like they ditched the bizarre front end seen on earlier prototypes: http://www.leftlanenews.com/honda-pilot-prototype.html.

A prototype of the next-generation Honda Pilot will be unveiled at the January 2008 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, American Honda Motor Co., Inc., announced today.

The prototype will convey design features of the more boldly-styled, next-generation Pilot and will emphasize authentic SUV styling, clever interior packaging and advanced technologies for safety, fuel efficiency and convenience.

The current-generation Pilot offers versatile eight-passenger seating and all-weather, medium-duty off-road capabilities while earning a distinctive reputation in the midsize SUV class for its refined handling and ride comfort. Among its numerous accolades, the Honda Pilot has earned Car and Driver magazine's prestigious "5Best Truck" award for six straight years (2002 thru 2007).

Additional Honda vehicles to be on display at NAIAS include the FCX Clarity hydrogen fuel cell vehicle, introduced at the 2007 Los Angeles Auto Show, and the CR-Z concept vehicle, introduced at the 40th Tokyo Motor Show. Limited retail marketing of the FCX Clarity will begin in summer 2008. The CR-Z is a next-generation lightweight sports car concept equipped with Honda's original gas-electric hybrid system.

My guess is that it will have the asstastic front from the mule, since we can't see the front in that sketch. The whole thing reeks of jeep though, not honda. I'm sure they'll still manage to uglify it in the translation to production though.

Wow! Is that the new Chevy Trailblazer? It's not bad looking, but it screams CHEVROLET.

What rubbish are they yapping about? True SUV styling? As in big and boxy but too soft to tackle rain? Or are they developing a serious SUV?

I agree, it looks like a Chevrolet. VERY Tahoe.

I'm a fan of SH-AWD and I haven't even driven one though...
