2017 GMC Terrain vs. 2016 Honda Pilot Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The GMC Terrain offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Honda Pilot. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the GMC Terrain and the Honda Pilot.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the GMC Terrain 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). Clearly, the GMC Terrain is a better financial choice over the Honda Pilot, when considering MSRP. 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 GMC Terrain and the Honda Pilot have similar Destination Charges.

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

Drivetrain
The GMC Terrain has much lower torque than the Honda Pilot, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The GMC Terrain has the same turning radius as the Honda Pilot, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Honda Pilot is clearly the choice over the GMC Terrain for pulling heavy loads. The GMC Terrain has a little more horsepower than the Honda Pilot.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the GMC Terrain seats a lot fewer people than the Honda Pilot. The GMC Terrain has significantly less cargo capacity than the Honda Pilot.

Warranty
The GMC Terrain comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda Pilot.
