Upcoming Honda Cars 2023

Massive changes are coming to Honda's SUV lineup for 2023. Three of the four it currently offers in the U.S.—the HR-V, CR-V, and Pilot—return redesigned. The next-generation HR-V and CR-V are each more spacious and capable than the models they replace, and the brand also delivers a more capable Trail Sport trim for the next Pilot three-row ute.

A bit further out, we take a better look at what the automaker envisions for its Prologue electric SUV, which will be a 2024 model. Keep reading for what's new and different with every 2023 Honda SUV and truck, plus a preview of the 2024 Prologue. 

Honda Cars will be on sale at your local Honda Dealerships.

2023 Honda HR-V

MSRP Range: $23,650 - $28,950

What’s New? 

  • Fresh interior and new styling.
  • The adjustable rear seats of the previous model.

Welcome to the second-generation HR-V (in the United States, at least), which features a fresh exterior and updated underpinnings. The new small SUV is built on the same architecture as the superb 11th-generation Civic, which was previously based on the defunct Fit subcompact hatchback platform. The new model's independent rear, formerly a twist-beam, should increase capability. Although the new 2.0-liter inline-four engine produces 17 more horsepower (for 158 hp) and 11 more lb-ft of torque (for 138 lb-ft) than the 1.8-liter four-cylinder in the outgoing model, it's still a bit sluggish for the entry-level SUV market.

Pros.
Cons.
  • Based on stunning new construction.
  • Somewhat worse than the previous model's fuel efficiency.
  • Borrows elements of the design of the new Civic.
  • Some trims come with a small infotainment touchscreen. 

The interior of the new HR-V borrows details from the Civic, like the honeycomb mesh trim, and it has a wider back seat area and somewhat greater cargo space. Additionally, the cabins come standard with front body-stabilizing seats, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, a 7.0-inch central touchscreen (the model's previous 5.0-inch touchscreen is gone), and a 7.0-inch digital gauge cluster. There is also a 9.0-inch infotainment screen that supports wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

2023 Honda CR-V

MSRP Range: $31,110 - $38,600

What’s New? 

  • The Exterior and interior measurements are a tiny bit bigger.
  • Enhanced touchscreen user experience.

The larger CR-V is starting a new generation with the 2023 model, just like the HR-V. The revised compact crossover is longer and broader than its predecessor for a more conventional SUV appearance, and it sports a low beltline, long front end, and vertical grille.

Pros.
Cons.
  • A new design this year.
  • On hills, hybrid powertrains can be obtrusive and slow.
  • Roomier than the previous model.
  • Real-world fuel efficiency from the hybrid is disappointing.

Honda continues to improve on the CR-V's already great interior with more rear legroom than the previous model had and the most cargo room behind the rear seats in the model's history, 36.3 cubic feet. The crossover also gains what Honda says is the largest center console bin in the class and a larger standard touchscreen (now 7.0 inches, with higher trims getting a standard 9.0-inch screen). The cabin is also equipped with standard body-stabilizing seats like the ones in the HR-V. Finally, changes in safety features include next-generation front airbags, new standard knee, and rear passenger side-impact airbags, and a new wide-view camera and radar for the 2023 CR-V's standard Honda Sensing active safety system.

2023 Honda CR-V Hybrid

MSRP Range: $39,845

What’s New?

  • Exterior and interior dimensions are slightly greater.
  • Enhanced touchscreen user experience.

The majority of the basic model's upgrades are also made to the 2023 CR-V Hybrid, which also gains additional output from its upgraded powertrain. The overall system output rises by 3 horsepower to 204 hp, while the electric motors' combined torque improves by 15 lb-ft to 247 lb-ft. The system also uses a 2.0-liter inline-four that has been upgraded to have direct fuel injection for better refinement.

Pros.
Cons.
  • More effective than a regular CR-V.
  • No hybrid plug-in variant.
  • More athletic style than the model from before.
  • Absolutely no base trim.

The New CR-V Hybrid now has a towing capacity of 1,000 pounds thanks to its additional oomph. Rectangular exhaust tips and gloss black accents on the external trim are also included on hybrid versions, which are now available in Sport and Sport Touring trims at the top of the range.

2023 Honda Pilot

MSRP Range: Starting at $40,000(est.)

What’s New?

  • Leather seats are added to EX-L trim.
  • For 2023, Pilot has undergone a complete overhaul.

Although it's only a grouping of pixels in this faraway image, Honda says we're looking at the redesigned 2023 Pilot in TrailSport trim, which will be the most capable SUV ever from the brand. Unlike the related Passport TrailSport, which is essentially an appearance package for the 2022 two-row model, upgrades for the 2023 Pilot should be more substantial. 

Pros.
Cons.
  • Flexible three-row layout.
  • What it looks like is still unknown.
  • Trail Sport off-road model.
  • May still begin around $40K

Expect some of the Passport TrailSport Rugged Roads concept's characteristics, like its higher ground clearance and underbody skidplates, to make their way onto the Pilot TrailSport in 2023. Honda has not yet announced the price, but the outgoing model started at close to $40,000 after the LX trim level's discontinuation.

2023 Honda Passport

MSRP Range: $41,100 - $46,560

What’s New?

  • For 2023, no notable changes are anticipated.
  • A 2019 release of the third generation of passports.

The third-generation Passport debuted in 2019 and Honda opted to stick with its two-row midsize vehicle until 2023 because there would be so many other changes to the SUV market. The Passport was the first Honda SUV to be offered in a tough-looking TrailSport version for 2022.

Pros.
Cons.
  • Nimble powertrain.
  • Noise invades the cabin.
  • Active safety measures are common.
  • Unsatisfactory driving behavior.

When it comes to the on-road driving experience, the Passport excels. Smooth shifts are made by the nine-speed transmission, and the standard V6 engine provides quick acceleration. According to critics' testing, the 0-60 mph run took 6.8 seconds, which is among the fastest in its class. Additionally, the Passport has above-average handling qualities. The SUV feels nimble and light in corners thanks to its finely weighted steering.

2023 Honda Ridgeline

MSRP Range: $38,800 - $46,230 

What’s New? 

  • No significant changes for 2023.
  • A member of the 2017-released second Ridgeline generation.

The Ridgeline pickup for 2023 remains unchanged, just as the Passport with which it shares an architectural family. However, both also share a platform with the Pilot, which has undergone a makeover this year, so perhaps Honda's truck will receive a significant upgrade within the next two years. The second-generation Ridgeline, which debuted in 2017, received its final significant modification for 2021, which incorporated a more truck-like face.

Pros.
Cons.
  • Its V-6 engine provides strong power.
  • Ride quality is compromised by hauling.
  • Considerate packing.
  • Specification for a single cab and bed length.

The Ridgeline's unibody chassis, fully independent suspension, and torque-vectoring all-wheel drive system all have numerous advantages. The advantages of having a car-based truck are most apparent when it comes to steering and handling, which are unmatched among midsize pickups. Limited off-road potential exists. In this respect, the Ridgeline is similar to a crossover SUV because it lacks the underbody clearance, wheel articulation, and low-range gearing that other 4WD pickups need to travel through more rugged terrain. However, compared to a standard solid-axle vehicle, the Ridgeline performs better on washboard dirt roads because to its independent rear suspension.

2024 Honda Prologue - The All Electric SUV 

MSRP Range: Starting at $40,000(est.)

What’s New? 

Honda hasn't officially disclosed the Prologue's price or trim levels, but we anticipate that the new car will start at roughly $45,000 and increase in price from there.

Although we can expect to see Honda's standard LX, EX, EX-L, and Touring trim levels, we won't know which one will offer the best value until those details are made public.

Honda made the wise decision to create a midsize SUV as its next electric vehicle for North American markets. And for the first time, it is being designed with virtual reality visualization technology. The new vehicle appears to have a long wheelbase and short overhangs in the sketch that serves as a peek.

Pros.
Cons.
  • Finally, a Honda electric SUV.
  • Unavailable until the beginning of 2024.
  • Driving range of 200–300 miles.
  • Not entirely Honda-engineered.

The 2023 Cadillac Lyriq SUV, Chevrolet Blazer EV, and Chevrolet Equinox EV all use the same BEV3 electric vehicle architecture and Ultium battery management system as the new ute. Honda says to expect "range on par with its existing SUVs," but details are still lacking. Look for charging times similar to the Blazer EVs, which GM claims can add 78 miles of range in 10 minutes.

Editor’s Note

“All the details and images are based on Honda’s models from the previous year. We anticipate a comparable lineup for the 2023 modes, and once we receive all the details, we'll update the concerning areas.”

Buying a new car is a thrilling experience! There are many things to think about in advance to have a positive overall experience. What you need to know before buying a car is helpfully explained by carweek.com.

Recognizing the current state of the market is the first step. It's unlikely that you'll get the same deal you did the last time you bought a car. In 2022, buying a car is not like it used to be when you could test drive a car, take some time to think about it at home, and then inevitably get a follow-up call from a dealer to discuss the pricing. People are now paying the sticker price, if not more. You need to adjust your expectations for how the deal will go.

What is a reasonable price for the car you want? Spending some time on Google is one approach to learning more. The power of online resources to support consumer car searches has never been greater. Last year, prices for new, used, and trade-in cars were unstable, often leading to abrupt fluctuations from month to month. It is beneficial to accomplish as much as you can from the comfort of your home in a situation like this.
