The 2013 Honda Pilot vs. the 2013 Ford Explorer

2013 Honda PilotWith an eight-seat passenger capacity, plenty of cargo room, and power to boot, the 2013 Honda Pilot SUV is a favorite among Raynham and Easton families.  A bold looking grille and body also make it one of the best-looking vehicles in its class. And like the rest of Honda’s lineup, it is available with a full list of modern features and is designed first and foremost with safety in mind.

While many drivers think Ford is synonymous with SUVs, the Pilot actually has quite the leg up on the popular 2013 Explorer in quite a few respects. For example, while the Pilot can seat 8, the Explorer only has room for seven. This is only one of many advantages that Honda drivers enjoy. Let’s explore some more.

The Honda Pilot Offers More Standard Features

There are quite a few features enjoyed by Honda Pilot LX drivers that are missing from the similarly-priced base Ford Explorer, including quite a few safety features. Here are just a few of them:

  • Active head restraints in the front row, as well as second and third row head restraints
  • A rearview camera for easier backing, a must for families with smaller children and pets
  • Electronic brake distribution
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Arm rest storage

The Pilot also has a greater total storage area: 87 cubic feet compared with 80.7 cubic feet.
