Tons of drivers in the Marlton, Mt. Laurel, and Cherry Hill areas crave the driving experience that an SUV can offer, and there are tons of reasons why. These vehicles pack a lot of punch on the road while remaining easy-to-handle and highly functional. However, with so many different models on the market, how do you know which one is right for you?
To assist you in this hard decision, Burns Honda has taken two famed SUVs and put them side by side. In our 2019 Honda Pilot vs. Toyota Highlander comparison, you can see how these vehicles stack up against each other, allowing you to make an educated decision.
While both these vehicles have been known to take the road by storm, there are some noteworthy differences when it comes to performance specs.
The 2019 Highlander comes standard with a 2.7-liter VVI engine. This gives you the chance to put the available 185 HP and 184 lb-ft of torque to the test. Because of this engine, you’ll have the capability to tow up to 1,500 pounds.
However, in the 2019 Honda Pilot, you’ll have the power that its 3.5-liter V6 engine supplies. This engine generates an impressive 280 HP and 262 lb-ft of torque, and gives you the chance to tow up to 5,000 pounds with the proper equipment and configuration.
Also in the Honda, you’ll have the choice between a 6-speed automatic transmission or the available 9-speed automatic transmission with Shift-by-Wire technology. This gives you the chance to personalize your drive with industry-leading technology.
Although the Toyota comes equipped with a 6-speed automatic, as well, its only other available transmission is only an 8-speed. So, if you’re looking for more power and customization while driving, it’s clear what is the popular choice.
Whether you are planning for a scenic road trip or simply need to restock your kitchen with a trip to the grocery store, having enough area in the back of your vehicle is critical. Both the Honda and Toyota shine at this, however their interior spaces differ.
The 2019 Honda Pilot has the ability to seat up to eight people comfortably in its 152.9 cubic feet of passenger volume. Also, with its easy-to-fold down second and third rows, you can utilize a generous 109 cubic feet of space behind the front seats.
