2013 Honda PilotAs many drivers in the Frankfort, IL area know, the 2013 Honda Pilot brings nearly unmatched utility, impressive fuel economy, and rugged good looks to the midsize crossover segment. At Community Honda of Orland Park, we think it’s a good choice for those who are split between a minivan and a large truck-based SUV. It’ll probably also be tempting to those looking at wagons or large sedans, due to its added interior space. When it comes down to it, we think the Honda Pilot is even a better choice than competitors like the 2013 Toyota Highlander.

Reasons to Choose the 2013 Pilot

  • Fuel economy – The top consideration for almost all car buyers these days is gas mileage, and that’s one place that the 2013 Honda Pilot LX 2WD really shines. It beats the Toyota handily: the Pilot gets 18 mpg city/25 mpg highway/21 mpg combined,* while the 2013Toyota Highlander V6 4×2 comes away with 18 mpg city/24 mpg highway/20 mpg combined.
  • Power – Usually, you equate better fuel economy with lower power — that’s not the case here. The Honda Pilot has a V6 good for 253 hp — that’s a bit better than the 248 hp of the Toyota.
  • Safety – In NHTSA front driver crash tests, the Pilot gets a perfect five-star rating, while the Highlander only gets four. In the rest of the ratings, the two are evenly matched, but that’s a very important test. The Honda Pilot also gets active head restraints to protect against neck injuries in all three rows, while the Highlander is only equipped with that feature in the first two rows.
  • Rearview camera – For both safety and convenience, the Honda comes standard with a rearview camera to make it easier to park and back into traffic. This feature is not standard on the Highlander.
  • Convenience – Sometimes the little things really add up to a more convenient and comfortable driving experience. Take, for example, automatic dual-zone climate control. This allows everyone in the car to stay comfy in any weather. That feature is standard on the Pilot, but unavailable on the Highlander.
