2015 Toyota Highlander vs. 2015 Honda Pilot

An Update for Eastern Kentucky, Southern Ohio, and West Virginia Drivers Looking for a 2015 Toyota Highlander…

Drivers on the search for a new SUV in the Tri-State area may be entertaining the idea of the 2015 Toyota Highlander, but can it compare against competing SUVs? There can be only one SUV that’s the best, but even with features like a rearview camera, Bluetooth, and a 6.1-inch touchscreen, the Highlander comes up short on many competing models. And then there’s the standard powertrain, a 185-hp four-cylinder getting 25 highway mpg and unavailable with all-wheel drive. We think that if you’re looking at the big picture, the Highlander doesn’t really have what it takes to compete these days.

If you want a fuel-efficient and well-equipped SUV, you don’t have to go far. You can find the 2015 Honda Pilot at a Tri-State Honda Dealer near you, and not only does it come with a 250-hp 3.5L V6 as standard, 2015 Pilot 2WD models earn an EPA-estimated 25 highway mpg,* matching the Highlander’s four-cylinder efficiency. And when it comes to features, the Pilot has an 8-inch touchscreen interface on every trim level along with Bluetooth HandsFreeLink for phone and audio, SMS texting capabilities, Pandora internet radio compatibility, and much more. One last point: the Highlander can only be had with all-wheel drive if you’re willing to upgrade its basic engine to a V6, but you can find Honda’s Real-Time All-Wheel Drive available on every trim level of the Pilot.

Take a look at how these SUVs compare side-by-side, then visit a Tri-State Honda Dealer to test drive a Pilot.
