2023 Honda Pilot TrailSport Teaser

Honda will again offer the TrailSport trim on the new 2023 Pilot. A new teaser shows Honda's redesigned SUV, which it calls its "most rugged and capable"

Teaser image reveals nothing. The Pilot TrailSport's details are too small to see. Previous spy shots have shown that the SUV's redesign will be more aggressive. The 2023 Pilot will have upright headlights and vertical intakes in the lower corners.

The 2023 Honda Pilot TrailSport could have 18-inch wheels, a leather interior, off-road touches, and unique badging. Standard AWD. Honda's 2022 Passport TrailSport has new wheels, visual upgrades, and a wider track.

The Pilot will be redesigned inside and out, but its powertrain should remain unchanged. Honda's 3.5-liter V6 produces 280 horsepower and pairs with a nine-speed automatic transmission.

Honda could make the engine more efficient or add a 10-speed gearbox, but that's speculation. Next-generation model could have plug-in hybrid option. 

Next-generation Pilot rumored to use Acura MDX platform. We haven't seen the interior, but it should be tech-packed.

Honda confirmed this year that the new Pilot will debut in 2022, but no date has been set. Off-road-oriented trims like the TrailSport will help draw buyers as the SUV and crossover craze continues.
