Space and comfort are paramount in any SUV. Which of these models offers the features needed to enjoy an enhanced commute?

The Wiggle Room You Need

Inside the Honda Pilot you’ll find a respectable amount of passenger space. This SUV features three rows of seats, the capacity for up to eight passengers, and 158.4 cubic feet of passenger volume. Yet, the Wagoneer outshines the Pilot.

While featuring the same number of seats, the Wagoneer delivers 179 cubic feet of passenger space. How does the extra room equate to the specific dimensions of each row? Let’s find out.

Honda Pilot
Headroom (first/second/third row) 41.3/40/39 inches 40.5/40.2/39.3 inches
Legroom (first/second/third row) 40.9/42.7/36.6 inches 41/40.8/32.5 inches
Shoulder room (first/second/third row) 66.1/65.2/64.4 inches 61.9/61.7/59.5 inches
Hip room (first/second/third row) 63.4/63/51.6 inches 58.4/57.4/44.6 inches

While having a few wins of its own, the Honda Pilot can’t compete with the overall, more evenly distributed space offered by the Wagoneer.

Sit Back & Relax

The cabin of your SUV is like your second home. Make sure it has all the amenities you need. This is easy when you drive the Wagoneer, as it elevates the riding experience with features like:

  • Leather-trimmed upholstery
  • Heated and ventilated front seats
  • 3-zone automatic temperature control

The fine details found in the Wagoneer are second to none, adding a touch of sophistication and luxury that’s missing from the Pilot since the above features—with the exception of the temperature setting— are only optional with this vehicle.


It’s essential to stay connected while on the go. Will the Wagoneer or the Honda Pilot help you achieve this mission? Let’s find out!

Modern Innovation at Your Fingertips

There's no shortage of modern amenities in the Wagoneer. Some of the most popular features include:

  • Wireless smartphone integration and charging
  • 10.1-inch touchscreen display
  • In-vehicle entertainment with Amazon Fire TV built-in
  • 10.25-inch available Front Passenger Interactive Display
  • Optional 19-speaker McIntosh® entertainment system

The Honda Pilot offers some of its own entertainment features, but it lacks when compared to those features of the Wagoneer. For example, the Pilot maxes out at 12 available speakers. It also doesn't offer a front-passenger display or Amazon Fire TV capabilities.

360 Degrees of Safety Monitoring

Your safe arrival is a top priority. Thanks to several standard and available driver-assist technologies, the Wagoneer and the Honda Pilot work overtime to ensure maximum safety from Point A to Point B. This is achieved by features like Forward Collision Warning and Active Lane Management technology, found standard with both SUVs.

Still, you’ll find the Wagoneer offers more safety features without the need to upgrade to a higher trim level. For example, the Wagoneer comes standard with front and rear parking sensors, a feature that’s optional on the Pilot.

The Wagoneer also comes optionally with Intersection Collision Assist, something not found on the Pilot, that can help you stay alert to oncoming traffic while navigating an intersection.






Powerful performance capabilities can help you better enjoy your commute. Let’s explore the potential each SUV has to make the hairs on your arm stand tall.

Thrilling for Everyday Travels

The Wagoneer and the Honda Pilot offer robust engines, but the powertrain of the Wagoneer truly stands out. Under its hood, it sports a potent 5.7L V8 engine, producing a staggering 392 horsepower. It’s matched with a TorqueFlite® 8-speed automatic transmission that delivers smooth and efficient performance at all speeds.

On the other hand, the Pilot comes equipped with a 3.5L V6 that produces 285 horsepower, which pales in comparison to the Wagoneer’s offering.

Powerful Enough for Adventures

Thanks to the power produced by the Wagoneer’s engine, this SUV can tow up to 10,000 pounds when properly equipped. This provides the strength and endurance you need for any task, whether that be embarking on a peaceful day of fishing or taking ATVs out for a wild adventure.

Beyond offering less performance output, the Pilot also can’t compete with the towing capabilities of the Wagoneer, as it maxes out at a 5,000-pound capacity.

The Choice Is Clear

In a head-to-head matchup, the Wagoneer emerges as the superior SUV. While the Pilot is a respectable choice in the SUV market, the Wagoneer’s commanding performance, advanced safety features, and expansive, luxurious interior set it apart. It’s more than just a vehicle—it’s an SUV designed to enhance every journey and adventure that caters to all your driving needs around Marietta, Kennesaw, and Canton, GA.
