2019 Honda Pilot 2019 Honda Pilot Review Schedule Test Drive
When you’re in the market for a three-row SUV, you have lots of choices to pick from. However, two of the most popular on the streets of Marlton, Mt. Laurel, and Cherry Hill are the Honda Pilot and Chevrolet Traverse. Both models offer both the driver and the passengers an unforgettable driving experience, but how do you know which one is right for you?
To help you decide, the team at Burns Honda has created this 2019 Honda Pilot vs. Chevy Traverse comparison. Which one will end up coming out on top? Let’s find out!
One of the most important aspects to look at when buying or leasing a new vehicle is efficiency. And while both vehicles offer a solid fuel economy on the road, one of these models might leave you wanting a little more.
The Traverse comes with an estimated fuel economy in the city of 18 MPG and 27 MPG on the highway, allowing you to hit the gas station less often. It also comes equipped with a decently sized tank measuring in at 19.4 gallons.
On the other hand, on the standard base trim on the Pilot, you will receive slightly more with an estimated fuel economy of 19 city/27 highway MPG.* Plus, the 19.5-gallon tank offers a bit more room than the one found in the Chevy. However, for even more efficiency, opt for the Touring trim equipped with the 9-speed automatic transmission. This offers you an impressive estimated fuel economy of 20 city/27 highway/23 combined MPG.*
Whether you want to hitch up a small boat for a weekend of fun or equip a trailer to make transporting larger items a breeze, the Pilot and Traverse have you covered. Although, there are some differences that should be noted.
The 2019 Pilot can tow up to 3,500 pounds when the standard model is properly equipped. Honda also makes available a suite of towing accessories, tools, and equipment that make hauling more streamlined. For example, pre-towing wiring on your Pilot is available, as well as trailer hitch to keep the load behind you safe and secure.Honda Pilot Towing Capacity Review
The Chevy Traverse cannot haul quite as much standardly, with an estimated towing weight of only 1,500 pounds. This means multiple trips might need to be made. Additionally, Chevy doesn’t offer towing pre-wiring for the Traverse and does not have a trailer hitch available.
The Honda Pilot and the Chevy Traverse offer a lot of the same tech features to make your drives enjoyable and safe. This includes advanced infotainment systems, dashboard touchscreens, and available navigation. However, there are some things found in the Pilot that you can’t find in the Traverse.
For example, with Honda’s CabinTalk™, you can seamlessly communicate with the back rows through an in-vehicle PA system. With a mic upfront, you can easily speak, and your voice will be put out through the speakers in the back.
At Burns Honda, we think both SUVs are great for your commutes in the Marlton, Mt. Laurel, and Cherry Hill areas. However, with a better fuel economy, more capability, and exclusive technology features, we think you’re going to love driving the 2019 Pilot the best.
