Toyota 4Runner vs Honda Pilot

2018 Toyota 4Runner in Barcelona Red Metallic

It’s time for another battle of the full-sized sport utility vehicles! As the roads become ever more crowded with SUVs, people looking for a high-performing family vehicle are turning to these truck-like options to get them where they need to go. While most manufacturers are focused on smaller or midsize crossovers, Toyota and Honda, perennial competitors, are still offering full-sized options for buyers such as the 2018 Toyota 4Runner and the 2018 Honda Pilot.

It’s no surprise that drivers across Miami, Kendall, Doral and Hialeah are curious about the differences between these two vehicles, and which one is the better overall. Take a look at the similarities and differences between the Toyota 4Runner vs. Honda Pilot, and learn where you can go to test drive the winner.

Toyota 4Runner vs Honda Pilot Updates

It’s always good to start a comparison with what new features each vehicle brings to the table for the model year. While the Honda Pilot hits floors completely unchanged this year, the 2018 Toyota 4Runner arrives with some new equipment packages available, increasing the potential options for customization and more off-road capabilities.

When you add this to the fact that the 4Runner already comes with six trim levels to the Pilot’s 5, you get a lot more opportunity to build the exact car you want out of the new 4Runner.

Toyota 4Runner vs. Honda Pilot Body Style

2018 Toyota 4Runner Cargo SpaceAnother advantage the 4Runner has over the Pilot is that the Toyota model is a true sport utility vehicle. It features a truck-like, body-on-frame construction which provides greater strength and power, including a solid back axle like that you’d find on a pickup truck. It’s one of the few SUVs still constructed like this, and it also allows for higher ground clearance and the special KDSS, or Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System, which better off-road traction.

The Pilot, on the other hand, is a crossover, which means, at its heart, it’s a big car. While its engine might provide enough power and its AWD solid traction, it simply can’t match the sheer power and capabilities of a body-on-frame true sport utility vehicle like the 4Runner.

To put this into numbers, the 4Runner gets 278 pound-feet of torque at the base level, whereas the Pilot gets only 260 pound-feet. In addition, the 4Runner offers true 4-wheel drive, while the Pilot offers only all-wheel drive, and the difference is noticeable when it comes to traction and power to the wheels.

Toyota 4Runner vs. Honda Pilot Towing Capacity

The 4Runner also offers greater cargo space and towing capacity. In terms of space to stow and haul gear, the Toyota 4Runner offers 47.2 cubic feet with the seats up, and 89.7 cubic feet with the seats down. The Pilot, however, gives you just 16.5 cubic feet with the seats up, and only 83.9 with all seats folded.

Finally, the 4Runner can tow up to 5,000 pounds when properly equipped, while the Pilot’s capability maxes out at 3,500 lbs.
