2016 Honda Pilot vs 2016 Ford Explorer
Though some of our favorite large vehicles continue to get bigger, we are finding that they are also getting faster, stronger and more efficient. To see how much better they are we have decided to compare the 2016 Honda Pilot vs the 2016 Ford Explorer. Both vehicles have seen updates for their engines that have improved the vehicle in a number of ways. They can now both tow up to 5,000 lbs, and are leading the class in fuel efficiency and neither has seen a significant increase in cost.
Where they differ is their overall interior volume and the power of their engines. The base model of the Pilot offers more torque than the Explorer and has a significantly more spacious interior. You’ll also find a different set of prices for higher level trims. Though they both offer features like heated steering wheels and second row seats, active safety features, 20-inch alloy wheels, leather trim and navigation, the Pilot offers it for less. You’ll also find a rear entertainment system with your option of a DVD or Blu-ray player in the Honda.
