2015 Honda Pilot vs. 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee
When you want a powerful,rugged, dependable SUV in the greater Chicagoland area, we know that a model like the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee might come to mind, but you’re better off with the 2015 Honda Pilot. Available now at Brilliance Honda of Crystal Lake, the 2015 Pilot comes in five different trim levels, features a 250-hp 3.5L V6 engine, and lets you choose from two- or four-wheel drive at any trim level. And that’s just the start of it.
The 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee, on the other hand, comes up short when compared to the Pilot. It’s tough to compete in the SUV world these days, and the Grand Cherokee is clinging onto the past in hopes that the Jeep name will carry it through another year.
Honda Goes All Out for the Pilot
Not only are the features of the Pilot incredible at even the basic LX trim level, but when it comes to safety, the Jeep just does not compare. To start with, take a look at some of the features you can find on every Pilot without having to upgrade:
- Bluetooth HandsFreeLink for phone and audio streaming
- Honda’s i-MID infotainment system with touchscreen
- Rearview backup camera
- Pandora internet radio
- SMS texting
Honda also goes above and beyond on safety features, with head restraints found on all three rows of seating and a design that gives it better scores than the Jeep in NHTSA safety ratings. The Pilot earned a Five-Star Front Driver Crash Test rating to the Grand Cherokee’s Four-Star rating, and Honda’s SUV earned four stars for the NHTSA’s Rollover Safety Rating, while the Jeep only earned three.
There’s Plenty of Space in a Pilot
The Pilot also offers seating for up to eight and plenty of room to move around, with 153.7 cubic feet of passenger room, soundly beating the 105.4 cubic feet in the Jeep. The Pilot can also unlock up to 87 cubic feet of cargo storage compared to the 68.3 cubic feet of the Grand Cherokee.
