Although the sides have been completely covered and disguised, big chances that the new Pilot would be coming with a flatter hood and a more dynamic greenhouse. It seems that the new Pilot would be slightly bigger, but until we get the official dimension and size, we can’t really know about it.

Honda hasn’t confirmed anything about the engine details. It’s predicted that the ride would be operating on a V6 engine with a 3.5-liter capacity producing 290 hp of power, along with 267 Nm of torque. Although there have been rumors about a hybrid engine, Honda hasn’t said anything about it.
