For the 2016 model year, the three-row SUV enters its third generation with a more modern, sleek design.

In the cabin, the Pilot's new 8-inch capacitive touchscreen Display Audio telematics interface is powered by a new Android-based operating system and more powerful processor, along with an available new embedded Honda Satellite-Linked navigation system. The new navigation system features improved graphics and new capabilities, including 3D renderings of terrain, buildings and road signs, improved lane guidance, live search function, and 911 emergency services.

The 2016 Pilot will be available at Honda dealerships in the summer.
