Honda Pilot vs Jeep Grand Cherokee


2016 Honda Pilot versus 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee

A midsize SUV, especially in Colorado, is the ideal vehicle for an active family or those needing more passenger room than a sedan can provide. The 2016 Honda Pilot has significantly more interior space than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, better fuel efficiency and a more powerful engine. With the snowy days and mountain trips in Colorado, the rear wheel drive of the Grand Cherokee is a big disadvantage. But even more important than seating capacity, interior space or performance is safety. The Grand Cherokee has not earned the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ Award as the 2016 Honda Pilot has.

The 2016 Honda Pilot's sleek styling and sophisticated interior are accentuated by the latest in safety and connectivity technology (1). The CVT or continuous variable transmission makes for smooth acceleration as well as improves fuel efficiency. ACE Body Structure is a Honda-exclusive body design that utilizes a network of connected structural elements to distribute frontal crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle. This helps reduce the force transferred to the cabin and more evenly disperse the forces transferred to other vehicles involved. The 2016 Honda Pilot has earned the IIHS 2016 Top Safety Pick+ Award*
