New Honda Pilot teased prior to Chicago debut in Feb

The third generation Honda Pilot crossover will debut at the 2015 Chicago Motor Show on February 12.

Once again the Honda Pilot will feature three rows of seats and is likely to, once more, seat eight people. Honda promises that a “dramatic shift in design”, which is hopefully PR-speak for “will look less boring than a week old bar of soap”.

After debut at the Chicago show, the new Pilot will go on sale across the US during the summer. Also at the show, the company will reveal details and the “design direction” of the second generation Ridgeline pickup.

Like the original 2002 Honda Pilot and the 2008 second generation model, the third-gen Pilot has been designed and engineered by Honda US.
