Let's explore how the 2015 Honda Pilot holds up against the Toyota Highlander.
When you've got a heavy passenger hauler like the 2015 Honda Pilot, you know you need a potent engine for a smooth ride. A robust 3.5L V6 with 258 hp and 253 lb-ft of torque powers the Pilot, and it's mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission. FWD is standard, but a 4WD system is offered as an option. By contrast, the Toyota Highlander is powered by either a 2.7L 4-cylinder with 185 horses or a 3.5L V6 with 270 horses and 248 lb-ft of torque. A 6-speed automatic transmission is standard, and an AWD system is optional. The 2015 Honda Pilot has a more robust engine than the Highlander's 4-cylinder and more torque than its V6.
When you have a large SUV and need that all-important 3rd row for increased passenger capacity, you want those riders to be comfortable. They will be in the 2015 Honda Pilot, which offers up ample headspace at 38.9 inches and legroom at a generous 32.1. They'll be cramped in the Highlander, however, with only 35.9 inches of 3rd-row headroom and 27.7 inches of legroom.
If you're on a road trip or you have a packed house, the cargo space in a large SUV is of the utmost importance. You'll get plenty of it in the 2015 Honda Pilot, which offers up 18 cubic feet of space behind the 3rd row while the Toyota Highlander can only manage 13.8 cubic feet. And if you're not to capacity and fold that third row down, you'll get a generous 47.7 cubic feet of space in the Honda Pilot vs. the Highlander's 42.3. Clearly, the Honda Pilot is much more spacious.
