Looks just like a shorter Honda Pilot. Interior looks 90% unchanged, same for front and rear and side sheet metal aside from small details. Ground clearance looks minimally increased.

So outdated looking. Wasn't even shown off in a fun or adventurous color.

Looks similar to the spy photos, with the exact same wheels.

Did you guys expect a Honda Element? Remember, the Pilot is actually the replacement for the Passport - I'm really not surprised that it looks similar to a Pilot - just more true to its original size. Not bad, but a big reason our family chose a 2018 Traverse over the 2018 Pilot was that the interior of the Pilot left a lot to be desired. Surprised the Passport interior is not more forward thinking than the current Pilot is.

Well, like many Honda's, I'll have to see it in person before I judge. It's definitely more rugged and off-road-ish.

The 2019 Pilot interior is much better with the refresh.

I wonder if there's different trims with a model as shown with the blacked out trim and a model with chrome trim.

Yeah, pretty much a 5-passenger pilot. Smfh!

Don't see the point of this, really. But I'm not surprised.

So the Pilot will be replaced in 3 years with a all new one. So will the Passport be replaced then too? Being that the Pilot is already three, it doesn't seem very original to come out with an "all new" SUV, that is basically a short wheelbase of an existing product. Maybe they laid off to many engineers?

i dont hate it... lol

PAssport being a completely different name is kinda unfair to this thing I agree. Its not a different vehicle like at all other than slightly shorter... Pilot Sport. Co-Pilot woulda been fine. lol

Yeah, count me disappointed... I mean, I didn't have high expectations given Honda's conservatism, but secretly was hoping to be surprised...

I get the corporate face thing... but do we really need 3 identical fronts with the Ridgeline, Pilot, and now Passport?... I guess Honda saves money on design and engineering... They can probably all use the same doors, mirrors, and LED lights & DRL's up front...

Does anybody else see Ford Explorer when you look at the back?

Lol.. it was nicknamed the Co-Pilot... everyone in the know told you it was a 2 row Pilot and yet when it is exactly that there is disappointment?

The only thing more amusing is those thinking it won't sell.

So it only comes with blacked out trim, no chrome option?

I think it will sell. Chevy for the longest had the Suburban and eventually shortened it and made the Tahoe.

Yes, they are different vehicles but the concept, still seems pretty much the same. Same vehicle but in a different size and with a different name and a different mission.

I'm coming in late on this, but I agree with you, sir: this version of the Pilot will sell itself. And "Co-Pilot" would have been a great name. I have no idea whether it's already been trademarked, but it's clever, spot on, and would have shown that American Honda has a sense of whimsy -- not an altogether bad idea.
