If you're a growing Springfield family searching for an SUV that can accommodate your every need, you have plenty of options available to you. Two of the more popular choices include the Ford Explorer and the Honda Pilot. Given each SUV's reputation for being reliable, spacious, and safe, your choice may prove difficult. Allow our Ford dealership to play referee in the battle between the Ford Explorer vs. Honda Pilot. 

Ford Explorer vs Honda Pilot: Performance

Large SUVs need plenty of power under the hood, and while the 2022 Ford Explorer and Honda Pilot both have powerful engines, the Explorer comes out on top. 

The Ford Explorer offers drivers three available engine options, one of which is a hybrid but the most powerful of the bunch is the 3.0L EcoBoost® V6 engine. This rugged motor delivers up to 400 horsepower, 415 lb-ft of torque, and can tow upwards of 5,600 pounds when properly equipped.

The sole engine offered by the Honda Pilot is the 3.5L V6, which generates a mere 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque while reaching a towing capacity of 3,500 lbs (2WD) and 5,000 lbs (AWD).

If you're looking to tow more and command the road with confidence, or interested in going green the Ford Explorer is the clear choice with its three engine options. 

Ford Explorer vs Honda Pilot: Interior Design and Features

The Ford Explorer and Honda Pilot make sure the entire family has enough room to stretch their legs and fit all their cargo at the same time. The Ford Explorer interior dominates passenger space with superior legroom per row.
