Learn How the Honda Pilot Stands Up to the Competition

The Honda Pilot Offers More of the Family-Friendly Space and Features You Love than the Competition

Shoppers on Long Island can find the new Honda Pilot available for purchase or lease at Huntington Honda. The Honda Pilot is a great choice for your growing family and has a plethora of space for both passengers and cargo on your next big road trip. This SUV has a longstanding history of great value and performance, but it also has its competitors. The midsize crossover segment is quite competitive, with a variety of other challengers stepping up to the plate. Let us see how the latest Honda Pilot takes on the competition from Toyota, Jeep, and Chevrolet here at Huntington Honda. Our dealership in Long Island is proudly serving the Dix Hills, NY area.

Honda Pilot vs. Toyota 4Runner

  • Performance: Both the 4Runner and Honda Pilot come standard with a V6 engine, but the Honda Pilot's propulsion system contributes just a bit more power. The Honda Pilot's V6 engine generates 280-horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque, whereas the 4Runner's powertrain generates up to 270-horsepower and 278 pound-feet.
  • Efficiency: The Honda Pilot is more commuter-friendly for daily drivers in Commack, NY and can travel further distances in the city and on the highway before requiring a stop at a service station.
  • Interior: Starting trims of the Honda Pilot seat up to eight while other trims offer seven-passenger seating with second-row captain's chairs. The 4Runner is available as a seven-seat SUV, but this version costs extra while the standard 4Runner is a five-seater. The Honda Pilot also has more rear head and leg room for your passengers overall.

Honda Pilot vs. Jeep Grand Cherokee

  • Efficiency: As with the Toyota 4Runner, the Jeep Grand Cherokee's standard V6 performance is no match for the Honda Pilot's engine when it comes to commuter-friendliness. Deer Park drivers may appreciate the fact that the Honda Pilot has longer city and highway cruising distances, allowing you to take on more highway miles on a road trip without stopping.
  • Interior: The Jeep Grand Cherokee seats five and falls short in the amount of breathing rook it provides for front and backseat passengers. The Honda Pilot seats up to eight with plenty of room for you, your copilot, and guests in the back seats. A three-row Jeep Grand Cherokee is available, but it costs much more than the conventional Grand Cherokee.
  • Safety: The Honda Pilot comes standard with many driver-assist safety features through Honda Sensing, including multiple lane management systems like Lane Keeping Assist System and Lane Departure Warning, as well as the Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM), auto high-beam headlights, and Forward Collision Warning (FCW). The Grand Cherokee has some equivalent features as the standard, but only has one lane intervention system, with no equivalent to the RDM.

Honda Pilot vs. Chevy Tahoe

  • Efficiency: While the Chevy Tahoe is a powerhouse of an SUV, it is also a gas-guzzler, traveling much shorter distances in the city and on the highway. Meanwhile, the Honda Pilot is a commuter-friendly choice that will benefit your daily drive through Smithtown, NY.
  • Interior: The Chevy Tahoe is the only SUV of these competitors to seat eight. However, this SUV does fall short on rear headspace for your backseat passengers, with 38.9 inches of rear headroom, compared to the 40.2 inches of the Honda Pilot.
  • Safety: The Chevy Tahoe does prove a worthy challenger in the field of safety, with a variety of standard driver-assist features comparable to those of Honda Sensing. However, the Honda Pilot also comes standard with the Blind Spot Information System (BSI) with a Cross-Traffic Monitor; the Chevy-equivalent feature costs extra to add to the Tahoe.
