2022 Honda Pilot vs. Its Competition

2022 Honda Pilot
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

Fierce competition starts with the divine Hyundai Palisade and Kia Telluride twins, which are the same crossover underneath but boast distinct styling and tech personalities.

Shop both—if you can find them.

The Subaru Ascent remains a strong choice for its value and safety, plus its turbocharged punch.

We like the Chevy Traverse, though it can get quite expensive and even though its styling is pedestrian.

If towing is important, the sublime Ford Explorer delivers the goods with up to 400 hp underhood.
