2015 Toyota 4Runner vs. 2015 Honda Pilot

Before Driving Home a 2015 Toyota 4Runner Near Eastern Kentucky, Southern Ohio, or West Virginia…

If you’re searching for a capable new crossover SUV in the Tri-State area, the new 2015 Toyota 4Runner stands out from some of its competing models—including its sibling, the Highlander—but is it the right SUV for you? The 4Runner SR5 trim comes with a 6.1-inch touchscreen interface, Bluetooth, and a rearview camera, offering seating for up to five passengers, but if you’re looking for more features or seating that can accommodate a full-size family, you will either have to upgrade the 4Runner or consider looking to another automaker. While many would have you believe that this is common for SUVs, that simply isn’t true.

For instance, the 2015 Honda Pilot is available now at Tri-State Honda Dealers, and if you’re looking for a spacious, well-equipped, and powerful new SUV, it should do the trick. Under the hood of the 2015 Pilot 2WD is a 3.5L V6 with 250 hp, delivering an EPA-estimated 25 highway mpg* to the 4Runner’s 22 highway mpg. And Honda’s got the lead on features too, with the Pilot coming standard with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system (the Honda-exclusive i-MID), a rearview camera with guidelines built in, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink for audio streaming and phone calls, SMS texting capabilities, and even Pandora internet radio compatibility. The Pilot makes it easy to keep everyone comfortable, too, thanks to its standard tri-zone automatic climate control.
