2018 Ford Explorer vs. 2018 Honda Pilot

2018 Ford Explorer Silver


2018 Honda Pilot Blue



The 2018 Honda Pilot is an attractive, capable SUV, but a 2018 Ford Explorer has more to offer O'Fallon families than its competitors -- competitors that include the Pilot. The larger sibling of the Escape, the Explorer brings easy access, more cargo room, and convenient autonomous features not found on any Honda SUV.

Cargo Volume

Collinsville Explorer owners will enjoy greater cargo capacity and ease of access than Honda Pilot owners:

  • The Ford Explorer offers 21 cubic feet of standard cargo volume when the rear seat is in place. For large parcels, drivers can opt for power second and third-row seats on the Explorer Sport and Platinum trims that provide push-button access.
  • The Honda Pilot offers just 18.5 cubic feet of standard cargo capacity and lacks automatic folding rear seats.

Both SUVs offer families access to powerful connectivity and convenience features, but the Explorer beats the Honda in several fundamental ways:

  • The Explorer trims offer an exterior keypad entry and enhanced Active Parking Assist autonomous feature to make accessing and parking the vehicle simple.
  • The Honda Pilot doesn't offer access to a keypad entry system or autonomous parking equipment.
