2015 Honda Pilot vs. 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda Pilot offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Jeep Grand Cherokee, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Honda Pilot and the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Convenience
With the Jeep Grand Cherokee, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Honda Pilot, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Honda Pilot is a better financial choice over the Jeep Grand Cherokee, 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. The Honda Pilot carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Pilot is much wider than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Honda Pilot takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Honda Pilot and the Jeep Grand Cherokee are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Honda Pilot has a larger turning radius than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is clearly the choice over the Honda Pilot for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Honda Pilot has a lot less horsepower than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Honda Pilot more than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. With the Honda Pilot, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Warranty
The Honda Pilot comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
