GMC Acadia Vs. Honda Pilot
Has your choice of mid-size SUV come down to the GMC Acadia or Honda Pilot? Well, you’re in luck, because we’re comparing these two models in three categories:
One of the very nice things about the GMC Acadia is that in addition to performing beautifully on pavement, it also has very nice off-roading ability. If you go with the AT4 trim, you will get a 3.6-liter V6 engine that pumps out 310 horsepower. In addition, it comes with an off-road-tuned all-wheel drive system, as well as hill descent control. The Honda Pilot has no off-roading capabilities.
No matter where you go, the GMC Acadia will keep you connected and entertained throughout the journey. Every model comes with a very user-friendly infotainment system with an eight-inch touchscreen, as well as USB ports, a Wi-Fi hot spot, and wireless Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay®. You will also get satellite radio, a six-speaker stereo, and Bluetooth®. Upgrades include navigation, a rear-seat entertainment system, HD radio, and wireless device charging. The tech features in the Honda Pilot are severely lacking, as it doesn’t come with a touchscreen, smartphone connectivity, or satellite radio.
You’ll get several built-in safety components in the GMC Acadia. These include rear parking sensors, lane change alert, rear cross-traffic alert, blind spot monitoring, and a rearview camera. The Teen Driver System is also included, and this lets you keep tabs on the habits of young drivers, as well as put restrictions on speed limits and stereo volume. Parking sensors, rear cross-traffic alert, and blind-spot monitoring aren’t standard features with the Honda Pilot and require an upgrade.
