Which Comes Out Ahead? 

When you need three-rows of stylish luxury in your SUV, you know that the Ford Explorer has what it takes to give you the comfort that you need with the performance specs that you'll want on your free time. If you want to know that your SUV has your back in unpredictable circumstances, then there's nothing better than having the latest safety features equipped. The Ford Explorer does more than provide you with reliable transportation, and it stands out in Leesville among the rest as a premium SUV. 

When compared to the Honda Pilot, the Explorer sticks out in many ways and excels at doing what the Pilot cannot. If you're ready to see up close what a new Ford Explorer has that a Honda Pilot doesn't, then you're in luck. We've put together a quick comparison for you to see before you even leave DeRidder to come for a test drive. 

Technology, Performance, & Comfort

  • The Pilot offers one engine: a 3.5-liter V6 engine with 280 horsepower. The Explorer offers three engine options, including a 3.5-liter V6 engine with 365 horsepower.
  • Towing in the Ford Explorer is better than in the Honda Pilot, giving you 5,000 pounds of towing in Many LA when properly equipped.
  • Both models are comparably-priced and comparably-equipped, but the Explorer gives you the Ford-exclusive SYNC 3 Infotainment System that the Pilot cannot offer.
  • The Explorer offers a trailer hitch standard on select trims, while the Honda Pilot will have you accept it as an accessory on select trim levels.
  • If you want four-wheel drive, you better stick with the Ford Explorer because the Honda Pilot can't give that to you. Unless you want to settle for all-wheel drive, you'd be better suited to choose the Explorer.
