2021 Honda Pilot vs. 2021 Toyota Highlander

2021 Honda Pilot vs. 2021 Toyota Highlander

If you are in the market for a three-row SUV with plenty of power and space for your next adventure in Muscle Shoals, you have likely come across the Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander over the course of your search. It’s not hard to see why both vehicles are popular with Tuscumbia drivers, but one is more deserving of that coveted spot on your driveway. Compare the 2021 Honda Pilot vs. Toyota Highlander to see why the Pilot should be at the top of your list. 

Pilot or Highlander: Price

Price is often a top concern for many Sheffield shoppers. Right off the bat, you will notice that the Pilot is the more budget-friendly choice of the two. 

  • 2021 Toyota Highlander — The Highlander starts at $34,810 MSRP for the base L trim. Drivers have the option to upgrade to the LE, XLE, Limited, or Platinum configurations.
  • 2021 Honda Pilot — The base Honda Pilot comes in at just $32,250* for the LX trim level. Those who choose the Pilot will have more trim levels to choose from, making it easier to find a well-rounded SUV with the perfect menu of features. Pilot configurations for 2021 are as follows: LX, EX, EX-L, EX-L w/ Navi & RES, Touring 7- & 8-Passenger, Elite, and Black Edition.

Pilot or Highlander: Performance

When it comes to performance on the roads of Madison, these SUVs are matched pretty evenly. While the Highlander has a negligible advantage in a few areas, Athens drivers will need to decide whether it’s worth the extra $2k. Compare the Honda Pilot vs. Toyota Highlander performance specs below:

2021 Honda Pilot LX

  • 3.5L V6 engine 
  • 280 horsepower 
  • 262 lb-ft of torque 
  • 6-speed automatic transmission

2020 Toyota Highlander L:

  • 3.5L V6 engine
  • 295 horsepower 
  • 263 lb-ft of torque
  • 8-speed automatic transmission

Pilot or Highlander: Interior Dimensions

When shopping for a family vehicle, space is often a key consideration. With the Honda Pilot, you will have 152.9 cubic feet of space, so you never have to worry about feeling cramped inside the cabin. The Toyota Highlander offers just 141.3 cubic feet of space for passengers, so you may not be quite as comfortable on your next road trip. Explore the Pilot and Highlander interior dimensions below:
