Honda continues to give its light trucks the rugged treatment.
The Passport five-seater was freshened for the 2022 model year with a heavy dose of adventure-oriented styling meant to represent its true capability. The fourth-generation Pilot appears set to follow the same craggy path.
The 2023 Pilot will be revealed this fall and is slated to go on sale by the end of the year. It's a longtime mainstay in the fiercely competitive three-row crossover segment that also includes the Ford Explorer and Toyota Highlander. In 2021, despite the microchip shortage, sales of the Pilot increased 16 percent to 143,062. Honda continues to struggle with supply shortage and logistics challenges, with Pilot deliveries sliding 34 percent to 40,696 through May compared with the same period last year.
