2016 Honda Pilot – Angles and Curves

2016 honda pilot

This morning, a major automotive website, and Jalopnik, provided an early showing of the redesigned 2016 Honda Pilot. Where I was instantly in love with the new 2015 Volvo XC90, I am sad to say that this vehicle did not give me the same feeling. At this point I should also say that I have always been a Honda fanboy; I’ve owned about eight different Hondas and I currently own an Acura MDX and an Acura Integra, and so it pains to be critical of their new designs.

First, let’s keep in mind that designing a good family vehicle, which CUV/SUVs have become, is extremely challenging. The market demands that these vehicles must be functional, spacious, comfortable, easy to drive and maneuver, efficient, and safe. In terms of looks, they must appeal equally to men and women, and at the same time have a design edge over the competition. Did Honda get this right?

Everything there is to know about the 2016 Ford GT

All-New Ford GT

A Ford like this doesn’t come around very often. In fact, I was in the seventh grade when the last one did.

A Ford “like this” has only come twice before [in production]. As everyone knows, Ford surprised the racing world when their GT40 won the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans with a 1-2-3 finish and then won the next three years consecutively, beating the almighty Ferrari in the process. In 2004, Ford came out with the GT to pay homage to the GT40 with retro-futuristic styling and an old school V8 that let it run with some of the best cars of its day.

Fast-forward to 2015 and Ford is looking to recapture some of that shock factor with the third installment. This is the 2016 Ford GT: the car that will bring Ford back into the supercar arena and, most importantly, bring the blue oval back to Le Mans for the first time since 1969 and just in time for the 50th anniversary of their first 1966 Le Mans win.

Not every detail is set in stone, but click past the jump for everything there is to know about the 2016 Ford GT at this point.
