2017 Toyota Highlander vs 2017 Honda Pilot near Romeoville, IL

Vehicle shown above is the 2017 Toyota Highlander SE AWD shown in Midnight Metallic Black.

If you are searching for your next new 3-row midsize SUV, then look no further than the 2017 Toyota Highlander. To prove to you how great this vehicle is, we at Thomas Toyota have pitted it against the 2017 Honda Pilot in this comparison of the 2017 Toyota Highlander vs 2017 Honda Pilot near Romeoville, IL. Afterwards, you’ll clearly see that the Highlander outdoes the Pilot in almost every way.

Peek under the hood of each of these 3-row midsize SUV’s and you’ll find they have the same-sized engines. Both the Toyota Highlander and the Honda Pilot have a 3.5L powertrain, except the Highlander is equipped with Sequential MPI and the Pilot with Direct Injection. Even with Direct Injection, the Pilot falls short in the performance category by only producing 280 horsepower. The Highlander, on the other hand, exudes a heart-pounding 306 horsepower! The Highlander also does not sacrifice power for efficiency with its fuel rating of 30/28/29 MPG city/hwy/combined1. The Honda Pilot gives you less thrills and will make you take more trips to the gas station with its fuel-efficiency rating of 19/27/22 MPG city/hwy/combined2. Plus, the Highlander lets you control your speed with an 8-speed automatic transmission, whereas the Pilot only offers a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Now let’s continue the 2017 Toyota Highlander vs 2017 Honda Pilot near Romeoville, IL, comparison on the inside of each. Settle into the driver’s seat of the Highlander and stretch out your feet in the 44.2 inches of legroom. Your legs may feel a little cramped when you drive in the Pilot, as it only gives you 40.9 inches of legroom up front. While both vehicles offer an 8-way adjustable driver’s seat, only the Highlander gives you lumbar support for those long drives along Veterans Parkway. You’ll appreciate the 60/40 split second-and third-row seats for added versatility. The Honda Pilot only offers a 60/40 split third-row seat, which means your space options are more limited.

Not only does the 2017 Toyota Highlander pack a bigger punch under the hood and gives you more comfort, but it also better supports the technology you use on a daily basis. For example, there are no less than five USB ports3 throughout the Highlander to keep your smartphone powered up at all times. Your passengers will not receive this benefit in the Pilot, as it only offers one USB outlet3. Coming standard on the Toyota Highlander is a 6.1-inch touchscreen with which you can control all of your electronics. A touchscreen does not come standard on the Honda Pilot and you’ll only be given a 5-inch screen to utilize.

We are pleased to announce the winner of this comparison between the 2017 Toyota Highlander vs 2017 Honda Pilot near Romeoville, IL: the Toyota Highlander. Come into Thomas Toyota to test drive one for yourself!

I went to the dealership mostly with the intent of just looking and comparing truck prices. The sales representative Terrell Williams was very helpful but no pressure. He open 4 separate trucks. Never pressuring myself nor my wife. I said I was looking for something in the 24000 dollar range. Terrell immediately know a truck that meet the all my needs. Terrell rode in the backseat as my wife and I took the truck on a test drive. Answered all our questions. When we returned to the dealership, Terrell told us what hours and days he worked but said that if we need to come in on his office hour to just let him or dealership know and he would be there. My wife and I spoke and bought the truck. The time we said yes to the truck to the time I drove off the lot with a cleaned plated truck was within 2hrs. Great job by everyone. Thanks Terrell for your time, professional approach, and just being a great guy.
