What is the Pilot?
Honda's Pilot is one of our favorite three-row SUVs thanks to its spacious, thoughtfully designed interior and smooth ride. Added bonuses include better-than-average fuel economy as well as a smooth, powerful V6 engine. The Pilot pretty much had the class covered until the Kia Telluride and Hyundai Palisade came along and shook things up. It's rumored that Honda's looking to redesign the aging Pilot for 2023 — it's been around in its current guise since 2016 — to put it back on top of this family-friendly class.
Though Honda's kept the upcoming redesign under tight wraps, it's not a stretch to think the new Pilot will share a strong family resemblance to the recently redesigned 2021 Honda Ridgeline. It's also a safe bet that the 2022 Honda Pilot will remain pretty similar to the 2021 model. Still, we've got our fingers crossed that Honda will refine its overly sensitive driver aids and provide a little better access to the third row.
