Honda Pilot Vs
While family vehicles are more typically all about functionality, but it’s important to remember that they do not forego exterior beauty. Both of these vehicles have excellent curb appeal. And both vehicles accentuate exactly what each of their respected brands represents. They have style that is both trending and interesting. The 2016 Ford Edge has a unique look that immediately sets it apart from other vehicles in its class. It as a short back and rounded, but long front end with a metal grille proudly displaying the Ford emblem. Its futuristic take of the family vehicle allows it to be a vehicle that looks unlike anything else. The 2016 Honda Pilot is a muscular bodied vehicle that has the DNA of a larger SUV, with a dash of minivan in there, while still maintaining its smaller physique. Starting at the back, the Honda Pilot looks strong in its stance, with accents that flow along the side to a stout front end. The front face, with two wide-eye head lights that can both snarl and smile at you depending how you drive the Pilot, perfectly accentuates the front grille with its centered Honda “H”. The Ford Edge is the hot new car on the scene, blazing a trail for the past 2 years, but the Pilot has a decade of reliability and development a style already under its belt with a variety of trims. It is for that reason that the 2016 Honda Pilot is the winner of this round.
Reliability & Style You Need in an SUV
While the exterior of the family vehicle is important, the priority for the 2016 Ford Edge and the 2016 Honda Pilot is of course, their interiors. Both vehicles have an interior design based primarily around technology, technology unique to their respected brands. The 2016 Ford Edge is spacious, and comfortable, with optional smooth leather seating, that is both plush and form fitting. The Edge has a center console that is easily accessible and easily workable, all while offering a comprehensive amount of entertainment and technology all built to improve your drive.
The 2016 Honda Pilot, takes technology to a whole other level. Its center hub, a beautifully displayed touchscreen system, offers a wide variety of audio functions and other features. Features like Navigation, or HondaLink, which make you feel like you’re driving a car with its very own brain.
The seating is roomy, and lush, with everything perfectly placed, with more than enough head and foot room to lounge as a passenger inside the pseudo luxury vehicle. Both of these vehicles succeed in their task; to make a vehicle that uses intelligence to drastically improve your ride. But the one that does so in a more clear and comprehensive way, is the 2016 Honda Pilot.
Best Power & Performance in an SUV
While a family vehicle needs to be comfortable, there’s a certain expectation tied to it, an expectation of functionality. Under the hood, both these vehicles do something impressive. The 2016 Ford Edge has 245 Horsepower and 275 lbs-ft of torque out of 2.0 L DOHC Engine. It’s an impressive amount of power and its fuel economy is tough to match. The 2016 Honda Pilot goes a different route, with a whopping 280 horsepower and 262 lbs-ft of torque and a CVT transmission to help balance out all that power.
It’s enough power to send a chill down your spine with just a touch of the gas pedal. It’s an incredible feeling. At the same time, with the help of Honda’s innovative Econ Mode, The Pilot has a level of fuel economy that rivals any vehicle in its class. Both of these vehicles, while taking different lines when it comes to design, are fully capable and built to survive even the harshest road conditions, something of a necessity given the unpredictable Edmonton weather. But, it all comes down to a matter a maturity. The 2016 Honda Pilot has been around nearly ten years longer than the Edge, and thus has that much more experience in creating a better vehicle. It is for that reason that the Pilot is the winner in the performance department.
Both of these vehicles can be deemed of success given what they are capable of, and what they’ve accomplished. They both give you a unique and enjoyable driving experience. They are stylish and comfortable. They are exactly what you want out of a family vehicle. The Ford Edge is economical, and efficient, but it lacks the power and intelligence that the Pilot has. The Pilot, takes your expectations and demolishes them with something you never thought possible. A power, yet effacement SUV that is fully loaded and exciting to drive. It is clear to me that the 2016 Honda Pilot is the winner, based on its ability to outperform, and outsmart its competition.
