If you are looking for a spacious and safe new mid-size SUV that you and your family can count on, then check out the 2018 Honda Pilot and keep reading to see how it compares to another popular SUV, the 2018 Ford Explorer!
The latest versions of the both the Honda Pilot and Ford Explorer have earned impressive safety ratings from agencies such as the NHTSA, and each comes available with additional safety features to enhance your family's peace of mind while out on the road. With every 2018 Honda Pilot, including the Pilot LX base model, comes standard safety features like second- and third-row head restraints; plus a rear electronic parking aid is optional. In contrast, the 2018 Ford Explorer base model is not available with those features; SUV buyers would need to upgrade to a pricier trim level of the Explorer to enjoy those same safety features that come on the 2018 Pilot from Honda.
When it comes to driver and passenger comfort and space, the 2018 Honda Pilot impresses with its roomy 8-passenger cabin that offers more overall passenger volume than its rival from Ford. The 2018 Ford Explorer base model offers just seven seats in its three-row layout, potentially leaving out one of your passengers. When looking for exceptional comfort, value, as well as fit and finish, the choice is the Pilot. Slide behind the driver's seat and see for yourself at DCH Paramus Honda.
While the 2018 Explorer gives drivers three engines to choose from, the front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive Pilot V6 both return greater fuel economy than any of the Explorer models, regardless of selected powertrain. The 2018 Explorer's available 2.3-liter turbo engine can match the Pilot's combined fuel economy, but comes at a costly upgrade from the Explorer's base engine.
Regarding pricing, the 2018 Honda Pilot LX base model comes in at $1,000 less than the 2018 Ford Explorer base model, at $30,900 compared to $31,990. The Pilot also offers Honda's Multi-Angle Rearview Camera as standard, plus a powerful 7-speaker audio system, while the Explorer only has six speakers and a basic backup camera.
