Honda is not a company that rushes into things. When its competitors were making hay with body-on-frame three-row SUVs in the late 1990s, Honda responded with the unibody 2003 Pilot crossover. While many competitors have been forced to rethink their mid-size SUV strategy, the Pilot has soldiered on through three generations with evolutionary, rather than revolutionary, changes.
The 2018 Honda Pilot is available in five trim levels: LX (starting at $30,900), EX ($33,330), EX-L ($36,760), Touring ($41,970), and Elite ($47,470). The Pilot still comes with a 3.5-liter V6 gasoline engine, featuring 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque, and a six-speed automatic transmission with front-wheel drive. A nine-speed transmission is available in Touring and Elite trim levels, and all-wheel drive is available on all trim levels but the base LX.
Here, presented in alphabetical order by brand, are 10 Honda Pilot competitors to consider.
