If you found yourself here because you’re interested in learning more about the 2016 Honda Pilot in San Antonio, then you’re in luck! At Benson Honda, we love the 2016 Honda Pilot and want to show you how it compares to similar cars in its class, like the 2016 Ford Explorer.
Let’s start with the obvious logistics. The Pilot is more efficient than the Explorer, weighing 400-550 pounds less and 3.8 inches shorter. It’s easier to handle, maneuver and park in those tight, front spot parking spaces that you’d miss out on if you were driving an Explorer! The Pilot holds 8 people, while the Explorer only carries 7. No more taking two cars out to dinner or even on a road trip. However, if you don’t need the third row seat, that’s okay because the Pilot’s cargo capacity is larger than the Explorers by over 10 cubic ft.! No more borrowing your uncle’s truck, you can fit what ever you need in the back of your Pilot. With the second and third row seats down, you have an entire 109 cubic feet of cargo space. Do you frequently tow things? The Pilot can handle 1500 more pounds than the Explorer can, so you don’t have to worry about who’s going to tow the boat on the lake this holiday!
On top of those incredible Honda Pilot qualities and specs, you receive several extras that the Explorer doesn’t offer. These extras include a multi-angle rear view camera, Forward Collision Warning that automatically applies the breaks at full-force (something the Explorer doesn’t offer), the option for a 9-speed automatic transmission, Bluetooth streaming audio, a USB audio interface and HondaLink! The Explorer offers Bluetooth, Sirius XM at an additional cost, and MyFord Touch, which is similar to HondaLink, but less user-friendly.
The choice seems simple to us, and we hope it’s simple to you, too! You’ll get so much more in your brand new 2016 Honda Pilot in San Antonio than you could ever get in the 2016 Ford Explorer. Stop by Benson Honda today or shop our new inventory online! See you soon!
