2014 Honda Pilot (1)When you’re looking for your next family vehicle in the West Michigan area, you may think that the 2014 Ford Explorer Limited is well-equipped and offers a great value, but if you’re in that camp, we have a suggestion for you: visit a West Michigan Honda Dealer and check out the 2014 Honda Pilot Touring 4WD.

These high-end SUVs both offers something great for your family, but at the end of the day, we think you’ll agree with us that the Pilot is the better choice for your value.

The Pilot 4WD Gives Drivers More

One of the things we love about the Pilot is that it’s one of the most versatile options around, no matter the trim level. If you want the control of four-wheel drive, you can get it. In fact, the Pilot 4WD Touring is actually more fuel efficient than the Explorer, getting an EPA-estimated 24 highway mpg and 20 city mpg* while the Explorer only gets 23 highway and 19 city mpg.

That might seem like a small difference, but it will add up over time. And that’s only the start of it. Here are some of the features you’ll find on the Pilot Touring that are either optional or unavailable on the Explorer Limited:

  • Tailgate power lock/unlock
  • Remote trunk/tailgate release
  • Navigation system

And that’s just some of the features. We’re particularly surprised to see the Explorer not including a navigation system for drivers at this high of a trim level. And to round things out, the Pilot earned a 5-Star safety rating from the NHTSA for Front Driver Crash Tests, while the Explorer only managed a 4-Star rating.

While these high-end trims offer some interesting comparison options. We want you to know that the Pilot comes out ahead of the Explorer at even the basic level. See our comparison of these two SUVs and decide for yourself: the 2014 Explorer vs. the 2014 Pilot.
