2016 Honda Pilot joins ranks of new Alabama-made autos

LINCOLN, Alabama – Amid the cheers of celebrating workers, Honda launched mass production of its redesigned 2016 Pilot sport utility at the company’s Alabama plant – the latest in a flurry of new or re-engineered models emerging from the state’s automakers.

“It’s an exciting day for all of team members in Alabama,” Jeff Tomko, president of Honda Manufacturing of Alabama, said Thursday after a ceremony marking  the 2016 Pilot production launch.

The new Pilot arrives at a time of intense product activity for Alabama’s expanding auto industry. In April, Mercedes-Benz celebrated “Job One” for its all-new GLE Coupé, signifying the beginning of mass production in Alabama of the sporty model that looks like a streamlined SUV.
