At the time when this excellent SUV was originally launched, it was one of the first vehicles of this type to be adapted to the daily use. Beside its excellent off-road capabilities, this model was very practical and easy for everyday-use. Original model was produced until 2008, when second generation came. Finally, we saw an all-new, third generation of this SUV recently at the Chicago Auto Show, in February. Production started few months later, and now this model is available on the market. When it is about 2017 Honda Pilot, it is hard to expect some bigger modifications only one year after launch, so we will see the vehicle with the pretty much same characteristics as 2016 year model.
