DCH Paramus Honda is the home to the 2018 Honda Pilot mid-size SUV in Paramus, NJ, and proudly serves drivers near Clifton and Paterson, NJ who are shopping for their next vehicle. Mid-size SUVs like the 2018 Pilot and 2018 Toyota Highlander continue to be popular choices for families big and small due to their three rows of seating and extensive cargo-carrying abilities. Read on to discover some of the key differences between the 2018 Honda Pilot and its rival from Toyota, the 2018 Highlander.
One of the most glaring differences between the base models of the 2018 Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander is that Honda equips every 2018 Pilot SUV with standard V6 power, while the Toyota Highlander starts off with a less-powerful 4-cylinder engine. In fact, the 2018 Highlander LE I4 base model gives up 95 hp to the 280-hp Honda Pilot! With its potent 3.5-liter V6, the 2018 Pilot SUV generates 262 lb-ft of torque and can tow up to 3,500 pounds with ease. The 185-hp Highlander LE I4 features a 1,500-pound towing rating, which will have to suffice unless you upgrade to a costlier Highlander trim that comes equipped with Toyota's V6 under the hood. For capable power and towing capabilities at an affordable price and even in base trim, choose the 2018 Honda Pilot over the 2018 Toyota Highlander. Drivers near Paterson, NJ can feel the power of the Pilot's standard V6 engine at DCH Paramus Honda with a test drive!
Perhaps the reason that Honda gave the 2018 Pilot mid-size SUV standard V6 power is that its SUVs offers generous passenger space and cargo-hauling abilities. With seating for up to eight passengers plus more cargo space than the 2018 Toyota Highlander, the new Pilot gets extra power to haul bigger loads! With all three rows of seating upright, Honda's latest Pilot stows nearly three cubic feet more cargo than the Highlander. Plus, with an additional eight cubic feet of passenger volume, occupants of the 2018 Pilot have more room to stretch out and relax than do passengers in the Toyota SUV. The additional space is especially noticeable in the third row, where Pilot back-row passengers enjoy greater head room and leg room than in the Highlander.
