2020 Honda Pilot vs. Its Competition

2020 Honda Pilot
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Telluride and Palisade are mechanically related upstarts from Hyundai and Kia that are newcomers to the class.

Top trims pile on the features and comforts and are a must-see for any shoppers.

The Ford Explorer is new for 2020, too.

It’s bigger compared to rivals, but so is its price tag.

The Chevy Traverse is a stalwart in the class and offers up confident power.

The Ascent trades on its standard all-wheel-drive system and Subaru looks, but relies on turbo-4 power exclusively.
