2014 Honda Pilot vs 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee
When you compare two of the most popular vehicles in a segment, the matchup can get pretty intense. The 2014 Honda Pilot vs 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee comparison is no exception.
These two crossover SUVs are actually quite similar under the hood. Though they are considered crossover SUVs, they lean more towards the SUV aspect, size and weight-wise. Therefore, the base models both come standard with V-6 engines, and have nearly identical performance. The torque is slightly higher in the Grand Cherokee, but the difference is barely noticeable, however it does assist the Grand Cherokee in offering a 6,200 pound towing capacity which is 1,700 pounds more than the capacity of the Pilot. This may be a problem for those who bring an unnecessarily large luxury RV along on their off-road journeys, but for those who would much rather rough it and sleep under a tent, the Pilot is the better option.
Get Superior Space in the 2014 Honda Pilot
Start with the fact that the 2014 Honda Pilot is capable of seating three more passengers if needed. The extra third row seat extends the overall passenger volume of the Pilot by nearly 50 additional cubic feet. The addition of the seat gives the Grand Cherokee a larger cargo volume—35.1 cubic feet compared to the 18 in the Pilot—but once the seat is folded down, the Pilot takes the victory. It offers nearly 20 cubic feet of storage more than the Grand Cherokee when both vehicles have the back rows of seats folded down. Despite the extra space, the Pilot is still able to achieve a higher city fuel economy than the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It’s only a difference of one mpg, but that adds up when you consider how long the Pilot will be a part of your family.
