The new 2023 Honda Pilot PHEV model is on the way, and it will be reportedly powered by the new plug-in hybrid system. From what we know so far, this unit will be able to provide a total system power between 220 and 250 hp. Torque is what really matters, and the new Pilot will have plenty of it thanks to its electric motors.
Many believe that with a fully charged battery, this SUV should provide at least range of 40 and 50 miles, but we are hoping even more. Honda also stated recently that would expand the Pilot’s list of ADAS with the upgraded Honda Sensing Elite safety system.
2023 Honda Pilot PHEV Exterior
The new 2023 Honda Pilot PHEV will surely ride on a new platform that will be able to hold a large battery. Compared to the current generation, the next-gen model will come with a bolder and more striking design. The redesign will be mostly noticeable at the front and rear. So, up front we expect to see a revised grille, headlights and also the hood. The rear-end, on the other hand, should be steeply boosted with new taillights, bumper and even exhaust.
Overall, you can count on a modern appearance. As for the dimensional changes, the fourth-gen Pilot will probably be similar to the recently introduced Acura MDX. Compared to its predecessor, the forthcoming Acura MDX will be around 2.2 inches longer, exactly an inch wider, 0.6 inches taller, and has a 2.8-inch longer wheelbase.
The new 2023 Honda Pilot PHEV will be definitively one of the most handsome SUVs. Generally speaking, the PHEV variant will add some extra features, but it will not drastically differ from the original one. The next-gen Honda Pilot will offer a cleaner interior styling with a more comfortable seat. As the original model, the PHEV variant will keep the same seating layout. This SUV can fit seven passengers thanks to three-rows of seats.
For 2023, we heard that Honda would add a new 12.2-inch HD full-color LCD instrument cluster and a brand-new touchscreen infotainment system. The system should be connected with a wireless Apple CarPlay and wireless Android Auto, which will make this SUV more attractive for tech-savvy customers.
2023 Honda Pilot PHEV Specs
The forthcoming 2023 Honda Pilot will be introduced with a new PHEV system. This is probably the best move made by Honda. If you didn’t know, Honda sold the most electrified vehicles in its history in the USA in 2020. So, the company said that it would increase sales by 2035.
A strong performer like the Honda Pilot, which sells in the millions of units, will be the first one that will be electrified next year. As far as we know, the new unit will provide at least 220 horses with two electric motors. We also expect it to come with a battery capacity that offers around 40 and 50 miles or even more.
Release Date, Price
The new 2023 Honda Pilot PHEV will probably be introduced to the public in the coming months. Furthermore, we expect it to go on sale sometime in the second half of 2022. Unlike the original Honda Pilot, the PHEV model will be powered by a totally different system.
It will likely use the same CR-V system that consists of a 2.0-liter inline-4 engine mated to two electric motors and a battery. Unfortunately, that’s all information that we collected about this amazing SUV. Stay connected with us for more upcoming news about exact engine specs and price.
