Honda Pilot vs GMC Acadia

2016 Honda Pilot
2016 GMC Acadia

Although there are many midsize SUVs on the road today, the drivers of Oak Lawn and Cicero are turning to the Honda Pilot as their next vehicle purchase, available now at Honda City Chicago. With seating for up to eight people, 109 cubic feet of cargo space, and yet an engine with powerful performance with impressive efficiency, the sleek lines of the newly remodeled Honda Pilot bring home the win. When compared to the GMC Acadia, drivers of Oak Lawn and Cicero are choosing the 2016 Pilot.

Performance

 The 2016 Honda Pilot features a 3.5-Liter, V6, 24-Valve, SOHC, direct-inject engine that brings up to 280 hp and 262 rpm torque. This engine has 9-speed automatic transmission and an Intelligent Traction Management system with improved torque distribution that is excellent in low traction situations, such as mud, snow, and sand, allowing you to manage Chicago winters with ease or adventure out of the city for a weekend getaway. While the GMC Acadia has a similar engine, it cannot bring the same efficiency to the table. The 2016 Honda Pilot will get 27* mpg highway or 19* mpg city, while the Acadia gets a mere 24 mpg highway and 17 mpg city. If you want to pay less at the pump, choose to bring home and fill up the aerodynamic 2016 Honda Pilot.

Additionally, if you choose to tow something behind your SUV, the Honda Pilot can pull more weight. 1500 lbs extra weight to be exact.

Safety

 The 2016 Honda Pilot, as with the lineup of all Honda vehicles, is known for its safety. With top safety marks in many categories, you can rest assured that when you drive home a Honda, you will get there safely, even if there is an emergency along the way. A multi-angle rearview camera helps you see what is behind you in a variety of spots. Available Forward Collision Warning alerts you to potential barriers in front of you, while the Lane Departure Warning alerts you when you are drifting from your lane without signaling. Daytime running lights keep you visible, and in some trims, these are LED lights for clearer light at lower efficiency. The 2016 Honda Pilot has these features and more. What does it have that the GMC Acadia doesn't? Everyone knows that even with the best safety features, emergencies happen. When it does, the 2016 Honda Pilot will keep the head and neck of you and your passengers safe with head restraints in each row of your seating.

Design

 This impressive midsize SUV has been redesigned for the modern family. Its new sleek lines will turn heads on the road. Few people will guess how much you can haul on the inside with that sporty exterior. Yet, it's not merely for looks as we already know. The design is aerodynamic for incredible efficiency. A power tailgate that opens with the push of a button, or smart entry that gives you easy access to your car. A one-touch moonroof is available on some trims as well.

The inside of the 2016 Honda Pilot is equally impressive. The entertainment system can stream audio from your Bluetooth capable device, as well as make phone calls through the audio system. There is also an MP3 jack to stream music that way, all through an impressive sound system. The 8-inch display keeps you connected while driving; easily touch the screen to access its features, and customize it so that your favorite features are easily accessible.

The Honda 2016 Pilot comes out on top when it comes to the interior room for passengers and for storage. An overhead console storage area keeps some of your things out of the way yet easily accessible. Yet, it has more room overhead than the GMC Acadia. It also has more room hip room, leg room, shoulder room, and overall passenger volume.
