Pilot or Highlander: Price

Price is of paramount importance for most Greeley-area drivers, so it makes sense that you’d look at cost first and foremost. So, which is the better value: the Pilot or Highlander? In terms of base pricing, the new Pilot promises a better deal.

  • Honda Pilot: $32,550 MSRP*
  • Toyota Highlander: $35,085 MSRP

Keep in mind, too, that the Honda Pilot comes in a variety of configurations, which allows you the opportunity to customize your SUV to your liking while remaining within your budget.

Pilot or Highlander: Dimensions

Your three-row SUV’s dimensions can mean the difference between a comfortable drive around Laramie and complaints from passengers. When it comes to the Pilot interior as compared with that of the Highlander, the numbers speak for themselves. The new Pilot simply provides more room for passengers and gear. 

  • Total Passenger Volume: Passengers have plenty of space to stretch out in the Honda Pilot, with 152.9 cubic feet of total passenger volume. Things may be a bit more cramped in the Highlander, though, as it offers just 141.3 cubic feet for passengers.
  • Shoulder Room: Front-seat passengers will enjoy 62.0 inches of shoulder room in the Pilot and only 59.0 inches of shoulder room in the Highlander. These figures are similar for backseat passengers, at 62.0 inches and 58.7 inches, respectively.
  • Cargo Space: With all seats occupied, the Pilot guarantees 16.5 cubic feet for cargo, as compared to 16.0 cubic feet for cargo in a full Highlander SUV. Fold the seats down to reveal between 83.9 cubic feet and 109.2 cubic feet in the Pilot, or 84.3 cubic feet in the Highlander.
