Honda Alabama launches production of redesigned 2023 Pilot SUV

LINCOLN, Alabama — Honda’s Alabama Auto Plant has notched another major milestone, with the launch of a redesigned Pilot SUV that is already setting records for the automaker.

The 2023 Pilot is the largest and most powerful SUV in Honda’s history, and it required significant changes in structure and training at the $3 billion, 4,500-worker factory in Talladega County.

Upgrades in equipment and processes were made in areas across the facility, including engine, weld, injection, paint, assembly and final inspection. It represented the most manufacturing change points since the first-generation Pilot debuted in 2003.

The plant also established a new training program that involved every employee and moved to a new global Honda standard for the flow of assembly processes.
