2014 Honda Pilot vs 2014 Ford Explorer
The 2014 Honda Pilot vs 2014 Ford Explorer are two vehicles ideally suited for family life where they both boast a stylish way to carry around large amounts of cargo and/or passengers. With the two SUVs being so evenly matched, it’s hard to really determine which model maybe right for you. However, upon further examination, it’s clear that the Pilot has some undeniable advantages that may just be the details you are looking for in your next vehicle.
Like any capable SUV, there needs to be enough power to carry those large amounts of cargo, passenger and perhaps a family boat or camper. Both SUV options use solid platforms with a 3.5-liter engine and offer a standard 2,000 lb. towing capacity. However, the Pilot does more than just supply engine power for everyday life; it also has earned the reputation as the most efficient 8-passenger vehicle in its class.
