2014 Honda Pilot (1)We know that there are many different aspects of a vehicle like the 2014 Honda Pilot that draw West Michigan drivers, but when we compare it to a vehicle like the 2014 Ford Explorer, one sticks out to us: features.

As West Michigan Honda Dealers, we clearly have a favorite horse in this race, but the fact is that if you want great standard equipment, Honda is the way to go. Let’s see how these models compare to each other.

Honda Redefines the Standard

For the 2013 Honda lineup, the automaker took a leap of faith. You see, many different manufacturers required that their drivers upgrade to get features that most people expect to come standard these days. Features like Bluetooth. Features like a rearview camera. Features like a touchscreen interface.

Well, why not just give drivers what they want?

Taking the auto world by storm, Honda redefined the standard for “standard features,” and vehicles like the 2014 Explorer didn’t stand a chance. Here are some of the features that come standard on the 2014 Pilot LX that are either unavailable or require upgrade on the Ford:

  • Tri-zone automatic climate control
  • Rearview camera display
  • High-res 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system
  • Bluetooth HandsFreeLink for phone and audio

Those are just some of the features! If you want an even closer look, here’s our 2014 Explorer and Pilot comparison.
