Something equivalent to the traditional EX and EX-L are sure bets although I suppose Honda could use the RT/RTL derivatives nomenclature from Ridgeline.

Cars.com had their first-look kinda video posted earlier today. They've since taken it down.

I'm not terribly impressed with its looks. Gives me Jeep Cherokee vibes from the profile view. Same engine/tranny setup (according to Cars.com) as a touring/elite Pilot (3.5 liter V6 w/ 9-speed auto).

I'm sure it'll sell - it's an SUV and it's a Honda.

Sounds terribly exciting tsxfan! I'm probably not going to like how this looks then.

I really thought it would get the 2.0T/10AT powertrain and can hardly believe they'd use the ZF 9HP transmission in an all-new vehicle given its reputation.

Heck - I think I could have been ok with the V6 w/ the 10-speed. Don't they put it in the Odyssey and RLX?

Yes, but there's not yet been a 3.5L/10AT with AWD (the Odyssey is only FWD). The only 10AT with AWD so far is the 2019 Acura RDX which uses the 2.0T.

Since it comes off the same production line as the Pilot and Ridgeline I'm not surprised they use many of the same components such as the 3.5 engine and ZF transmission.

I am surprised - with all the talk of adventure and capability - there are FWD models. Maybe they've checked the count of all the FWD Edges and Muranos that are sold.

It’s Pilot based. Nothing Pilot based uses the 2.0t.
