One all-new model set to appear at the show will be the 2016 Honda Pilot, a teaser for which has been released. We also have our own spy shots of the new Pilot, which reveal a familiar look for the eight-seat SUV in addition to some sharp new details.
The new Pilot, the nameplate’s third generation, remains closely linked with the Acura MDX and should once again be powered by a 3.5-liter V-6. It is being developed by Honda R&D Americas and production is set to take place at the Pilot’s home in Lincoln, Alabama.
Another vehicle set to debut in Chicago will be the 2016 Acura RDX. This will be an updated version of the current RDX, which has been on sale since the 2013 model year. Updates for the RDX have been made in the areas of performance, luxury, safety and style, which it’s going to need to fend of newcomers in the small premium crossover segment such as the Lexus NX and yet-to-be-revealed Mercedes-Benz GLC.
