2015 Pilot vs. 2015 Grand Cherokee
The 2015 Honda Pilot vs. the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee
For families looking for a true all-purpose vehicle that can handle the demands of daily driving, weekend adventures, and outdoor excursions, the 2015 Honda Pilot is a strong choice. This smart and powerful SUV is available now at Silko Honda, and it is truly impressive when experienced in person. Of course, you may also be considering other capable models like the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Our Easton-area dealership is going to take a close look at how the two vehicles compare to each other to help you make an informed decision.
SUVs are great for their rugged capability, but they are not always known for their efficiency. That is why you need to make fuel economy a priority anytime you are considering a make and model. The 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee is able to get 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. The 2015 Honda Pilot with two-wheel drive, by contrast, is rated at 18 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.* While that may not seem like a big difference, over time those gas savings can add up quite a bit, especially with drivers who do a lot of driving around town.
The larger size and stronger build of SUVs makes them some of the safest vehicles on the road, but that doesn’t mean that all makes and models offer equal levels of protection. In front driver crash tests conducted by the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, the 2015 Grand Cherokee scored just a four, while the 2015 Honda Pilot scored a perfect five. In rollover safety ratings, the Grand Cherokee scored a three, while the Pilot scored a four. And thanks to safety features like second and third row head restraints that are standard on the Pilot but unavailable on the Grand Cherokee, every passenger is protected against the most urgent roadway hazards.
Most drivers elect to go with an SUV because they offer ample space for passengers and cargo. If you are looking for a roomy, capable, and customizable interior, the 2015 Honda Pilot is the clear choice. The latest Grand Cherokee offers just 68.3 cubic feet of cargo space, while the Pilot delivers an astounding 87 cubic feet.
Thanks to the Pilot’s design, it is easy to maximize the use of that space. In the Grand Cherokee, your passengers will feel cramped in the 105.4 cu-ft of passenger volume, but be able to ride in comfort in the Pilot’s 153.7 cubic feet of space.
Plus, the Pilot has standard seating for eight, while the Grand Cherokee can only accommodate five. When you need a bigger vehicle to transport a large group of passengers, the Pilot is the clear choice.
SUVs get singled out because of their capability, but that doesn’t mean that comfortable and convenient features are not important, too. The Pilot comes with standard features like a rearview camera, rear-seat climate controls, and a CD player. In the Grand Cherokee, these features are either optional or not available at all. If you want a vehicle that can drive you and your family wherever the adventure takes you, you want to have the best possible experience getting there. That makes the 2015 Honda Pilot the clear choice.
