HondaThe 2015 GMC Acadia might seem like an impressive crossover at first glance, but what does General Motors have to offer you for such a steep price? Can it compare to a competing model like the 2015 Honda Pilot? There’s only one way to find out for sure—with a test drive—but we’ve got a nice side-by-side comparison of the two models for you so that you can decide before visiting a West Michigan Honda Dealer for a test drive.

Setting the Pilot Apart

The first thing that most drivers notice is that, for its price, the Pilot is one of the best SUVs on the market. By offering drivers standard features ranging from a touchscreen infotainment system to standard Bluetooth to a rearview camera, the Pilot has become one of the most competitive SUVs on the road, and that’s not counting all of the available options.

Now, let’s talk about the Acadia. To start with, GM does provide drivers with access to some of the features you’ll find on the Honda Pilot, but it doesn’t quite compare to Honda’s SUV. Here are just a few features that you’ll find on the Pilot that drivers will have to upgrade for on the Acadia, if they’re even available:

  • Dual-zone climate control
  • First row active head restraints
  • Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity

The biggest difference we think that drivers will notice, however, is the price. Despite Honda giving you access to features comparable to the Acadia, the Pilot costs quite a bit less: the 2015 Pilot 2WD LX is priced starting at $29,870 (MSRP)* to the GMC Acadia’s $33,975.
