2017 Honda Pilot LX vs 2017 Ford Explorer

SUVs are great vehicles because they combine all the best features from trucks and sedans including towing capability and respectable fuel economy. They also make perfect alternatives to minivans because of their large passenger capacity and cargo volume. The Honda Pilot is the largest available SUV in the lineup and makes a great alternative for customers seeking that comfortable interior room. The 2017 Honda Pilot LX vs 2017 Ford Explorer comparison shows the similarities and differences between the two base models.

The 2017 Honda Pilot LX is the base model for the Pilot lineup but it is by no means basic. The Pilot LX and Explorer are powered by the same 3.5-liter V6 engine. The Honda Pilot comes standard with an eight-passenger seating configuration while the Explorer offers a maximum seating capacity of seven-passengers. The Honda Pilot is also larger than the competing Ford Explorer meaning that Pilot passengers have more interior space for maximum comfort and cargo volume is not affected giving passengers more than enough cargo volume.
