2012 Honda Pilot Overview and Fuel Economy
On July 25, Honda gave Stephens Honda a quick overview of what to expect from the 2012 Honda Pilot. It only left us wanting more but thought you might be interested.
The most obvious change revealed to date is the re-styled exterior. Certain to please consumers who found the aesthetic of the 2011 Honda Pilot a little too aggressive, it features softer lines and a far more approachable presence.
For those who liked the previous Honda Pilot don't worry because the 2012 model still has a commanding presence. Plus, you have something else to look forward to: improved fuel economy. According to Honda, it will offer better fuel efficiency than any other SUV, offering three rows of seating for eight. As fuel costs become more of an issue for consumers this might play a more significant role in deciding what car to buy. That's why the Honda Pilot is an outstanding choice.
Unfortunately that's all we have. Stephens Honda does, however, expect Honda to offer more details on the updated Pilot SUV, soon. It will, after all, be available starting this fall. So, be sure to stay tuned. Stephens Honda, located at 1441 S. Liberty Bloomington, IN 47403, is dedicated to keeping you up to date. In the mean time, feel free to explore the current 2011 Honda Pilot. At-a-glance details follow.
