2016 Honda Pilot

Already looking much better than the current model.

We should see the whole thing in just a few weeks since the unveiling will take place on Feb12th.

On a side note, I remember a few years ago, getting emails from one of the designers of the current version. After I did a post on how boring I thought the design was.
This guy became angrier with each email, finally threatening to "kick my ass" if he ever saw me.

Let's see what happens this time around...

The outgoing version was just a box on wheels.

I see a lot of CRV in it. Vinnce, I doubt you have threats in writing from the dessigner.

The silhouette reminds me of an even larger CR-V. Guess Honda figured why not just save on all that tooling and expense to give the Pilot its own unique look.

Besides, it's a Honda and legions of Honda faithfuls will open up their pocketbooks and wallets to buy. I see another successful launch for them.

Even though I realize this is just a painting, it is encouraging to see greenhouse opened up & belt line dropped down.

Strong and simple proportions are appealing.

Watch out for designers getting hot under the collar!

So it's basically getting a slightly less coupelike version of the MDX greenhouse with a bodyside contour reminiscent of the HR-V. Surprised they confirmed the Pilot name was being retained, was totally expecting it to be called the PR-V.

The current version is utilitarian-looking and the front end makes a warthog look attractive.

BIG IMPROVEMENT!!! The current one looks like a cheapened version of a Dodge Nitro. This is more GM-like with Jeep wheel openings & M-350 tail lights. Looks like the Designer who threatened to "kick your a$$" got his own a$$ kicked! (either that or he got kicked out completely and this was penned by his replacement).
