The rugged 2023 Honda Pilot TrailSport, the most adventure-ready, off-road capable Honda SUV ever, will make its first public appearance this weekend to the delight of music fans at the 2022 Austin City Limits Music Festival (ACL Fest). Wearing a special wrap that celebrates the ruggedness of the all-new Pilot TrailSport, the highly anticipated 3-row SUV will join an exceptional lineup of artists performing on the Honda Stage throughout ACL’s two festival weekends, Oct. 7-9 and 14-16, ahead of its full reveal later this year.      

Tested on challenging terrain all over the country, the all-new 2023 Pilot TrailSport comes standard with a number of rugged features, including all-terrain tires, steel skid plates, raised off-road tuned suspension, expanded all-wheel drive system capabilities, a full-size spare, and front and rear recovery points.

The special wrap applied to the Pilot TrailSport, inspired by pixel art, celebrates the SUV’s competition debut at the 2022 Rebelle Rally, an extremely challenging eight-day all-women off-road navigation event. This is the fourth year Honda is participating in America’s longest off-road rally, which begins at Nevada’s Lake Tahoe and finishes more than 1,500 miles later at the Imperial Sand Dunes in Southern California.
