At our Toyota dealership, we are happy to compare these two SUVs and find out exactly where the Toyota Highlander excels over other models in its class. Then, swing by and take one out for a test drive!


Toyota Highlander Vs. Honda Pilot

  • The Toyota offers three engine options to choose from: a 2.7-liter, a 3.5-liter V6 and a hybrid option. The Honda Pilot only offers you one option, so you don't have the ability to pick the engine that suits your lifestyle.
  • When equipped with the 3.5-liter V6, the Highlander produces more horsepower and more pounds per feet of torque.
  • Both models offer an all-wheel drive option but Toyota provides some variety with a Dynamic Torque-Control AWD System and an Electronic On-Demand AWD system with intelligence. Honda only provides one option.
  • When it comes to finding the perfect model for you and your passengers, the Toyota Highlander offers more legroom and headroom in the front than the Honda Pilot can manage.

  • If you're looking for the most efficient model, the Toyota Highlander manages better mpg on the highway than any variation of the Honda Pilot. It also has a larger gas tank, so it can manage longer trips in between trips to the pump.
  • If you're a music lover, the Toyota Highlander starts you off right with a larger touchscreen and a better-equipped infotainment center than what the Honda Pilot offers on its base model.
  • Both models come equipped with plenty of safety technology to keep you and your family safe while you navigate around busy traffic.
