2015 Ford Edge vs. 2016 Honda Pilot Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Edge than in the Honda Pilot. The Ford Edge will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Pilot.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Edge as you will with the Honda Pilot, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Edge will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Honda Pilot. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Ford Edge and the Honda Pilot have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Edge is much slimmer than the Honda Pilot, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Ford Edge is slightly shorter than the Honda Pilot, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Ford Edge doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Honda Pilot.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Honda Pilot is clearly the choice over the Ford Edge for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Ford Edge and the Honda Pilot.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Ford Edge seats a lot fewer people than the Honda Pilot. The Ford Edge has less cargo space than the Honda Pilot, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Ford Edge comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda Pilot.
