Anjan Ravi,

Third generation Pilot was developed in the States.

Honda will world premiere the all-new 2016 Pilot SUV at the Chicago Auto Show on February 12. The Japanese car maker confirmed that the 2016 Pilot is “completely re-engineered and redesigned”, and released a teaser image – which has been enhanced digitally.

The three-row 8-seat Pilot will reach dealerships in the summer (April-June period).

The three-row 8-seater SUV will go on sale in the United States this summer. The third generation Pilot follows the first generation (introduced in 2002) and the second generation model (launched in 2008), and like its predecessors, is designed and developed by Honda R&D Americas in Los Angeles and Ohio.

Production of the SUV is expected to take place at the company’s Alabama plant. Further details on the new Pilot will be revealed at the Chicago show on February 12. Honda will also reveal details and styling on the new Ridgeline at the show.

The Pilot will not be sold in the Indian market, and in fact, Honda has no plans of launching even the compact HR-V/Vezel in India. Instead, reports point out that a compact SUV based on the Brio’s platform is under development.
