Chicago Auto Show Tease: 2016 Honda Pilot and Acura RDX: Comments

Recommended Posts

Just after a week of the madness that is the Detroit Auto Show, automakers are gearing for the next show on the schedule: Chicago. Honda is the first automaker to announce what they have in store for the show next month and it happens to deal with crossovers.

First up is the 2016 Pilot. Honda has released a teaser shot showing off the greenhouse of the redesigned crossover. From this shot, we can see Honda has retired the boxy shape that has been part of the Pilot since the first-generation model and going for shape that is more in common with the CR-V and HR-V. Honda goes onto say the Pilot will showcase 'new standout technologies, versatility, and dynamics currently unavailable in the mainstream SUV segment.'

Second is Honda's luxury counterpart, Acura announcing the 2016 RDX. The compact luxury crossover was redesigned in 2013, but apparently is up for a refresh. The updated model is expected to feature "a long list of styling and performance improvements plus desirable new luxury and safety features" along with "important improvements to performance, dynamics, comfort and NVH."

We'll have more information and live shots when both vehicles debut at Chicago on February 12th.

Lots and lots of new trim levels, features, etc. coming to the RDX. Perfect timing to make a fantastic package more luxury and with more features people are now looking for.


The Pilot should be a nice jump start over current, with new power train, 9-speed etc.

Be interesting to see how different the two really are and if Acura finally drops the Buck Tooth Grill that I think has hurt their sales along with bland boring conservative style.
