View Inventory

The 2015 Honda Pilot and the 2015 Toyota Highlander should both be on your radar if you’re hoping to upgrade the family crossover this year. While both of these vehicles may meet the needs of most Frankfort or Orland Park, IL area drivers, they’re far from equals. Below you’ll find a detailed comparison of how these two models stack up – and why you might choose one over the other.

Fuel Economy

The 2015 Honda Pilot nets some impressive fuel economy estimates when equipped with the standard 3.5L V6 engine, automatic transmission, and front-wheel drive: 18 mpg city/25 mpg highway/21 mpg combined, according to EPA estimates*. With all-wheel drive it earns 17 mpg city/24 mpg highway/20 mpg combined estimate from the EPA*. The 2015 Toyota Highlander with the 3.5 L V6, automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive earned a comparable EPA rating of 18 mpg city/24 mpg highway/20 mpg combined.


Despite the identical fuel economy estimates, you’ll find more power under the hood of the 2015 Honda Pilot. Its V6 makes 253 hp while the engine in the 2015 Toyota Highlander only makes 248 hp. You’ll appreciate that extra horsepower when fully loaded with passengers and cargo.


Inside the 2015 Honda Pilot you’ll find more space than in the 2015 Toyota Highlander. The Pilot makes way for an impressive 153.7 cubic feet of cargo volume with the seats down. The Toyota Highlander maxes out at 145 cubic feet.

The Honda Pilot also has a higher carrying capacity than the Toyota Highlander at up to 1,633 pounds, so you can take advantage of that extra space. The Highlander can only reach 1,455 pounds.

Features and Options

When you look at the different features in these two models, the difference is pretty stark. The 2015 Honda Pilot comes standard with features like:

  • A rear parking aid with camera
  • Dual zone automatic climate control
  • A leather wrapped steering wheel
  • Floor mats
  • Armrest storage
  • A lift-up glass hatch

None of that is standard on the base 2015 Toyota Highlander.
