2022 Honda Pilot and the New Updates for Three Row Crossover SUV

Honda is planning out their new 2022 Honda Pilot with their redesigned next generation vehicle. But the three-row plan won’t be happening to the crossover SUV – at least before 2022. We surely have tons of times to wait – and let Honda do their work.

The Redesigned Work

As if the crossover weren’t big enough, the new Pilot will get a bigger construction with the extra length (and also extra spaces between the wheels). It naturally affects the extra space, which would be used for the cozier and comfier second (and also third) rows as well as the cargo space.

The changes on the size and construction will definitely affect the cabin. Expect upgraded cabin with improved materials. Technologies will also be included in the new design as the latest technology would be implemented.

It is likely that the new Pilot would not be using Honda Sensing suite with the driver assistance technologies anymore. It means that they won’t be incorporating the forward collision warning, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and auto emergency brake anymore.

Instead, the SUV will likely get the technology of autonomous level 4 driving abilities. It means that the car itself should be able to deal with the driving situation on its own automatically. If it is true, then it would be an interesting to see – and experience.

Performance and Powertrain

Rumor has it that the new 2022 Honda Pilot is going to get a new gen of V6, which is claimed to be more efficient and powerful. The crossover will retain the all wheel driving system with higher 300 hp of power in the making.

The V6 engine still delivers quite impressive 280 hp of power and 262 Nm of torque. Automatic nine speed transmission is likely kept, although there are some suggestions that Honda is using PHEV pilot technology. But then again, it is still long going and Honda hasn’t said anything about their plan. But a lot of people hope to get electric power to run those wheels – we can only cross our fingers.

Price Factors

As it was mentioned before, the new Pilot is going with standard auto nine speed transmission. But in terms of trim, there will be SE (Special Edition) between Touring and EX-L. In the past, Honda enthusiasts would have to choose between the Elite and Tour to get the auto nine speed because the lower trim only offer six speed. But now it doesn’t apply anymore as the nine speed would be the standard. The starting price may start from $33,400 for the LX entry level.

Technologies would be a huge part in the redesigned work. Expect improved technologies like stop and start systems, dual zone climate control, and shifting paddles for the 2022 standard features. The SE addition would be built on the ex-L platform with wireless chargers, 20-inches wheels, and power foot-activated tailgates. If you want to get the all wheel drive system to all the trims, expect to pay extra $100 up to $2000.
