600 × 636
?If you're looking for a midsize SUV that can keep up with your needs for power and capability, the reliable Ford Explorer offers plenty of cargo space, three rows of seating for passengers, and ample strength for your daily adventures around Glenolden. But what happens when rivals like the Honda Pilot encroach on its territory? We compared the two to find out how the Explorer fared against its competition and discovered that the Pilot left us wanting more.

Ford Explorer vs. Honda Pilot

Interior Space

Families in Glenolden will appreciate the Ford Explorer for its ruggedness and practicality. Transporting gear in the Explorer is easy thanks to its ample cargo space. While the Pilot has a touch more storage space if you fold all the seats down, the Explorer boasts 21 cubic feet of space behind the third row over the Pilot's 16.5 cubic feet, making it easier to carry more gear even when you have all the seats filled.

Compared to the Honda Pilot, the Ford Explorer has:

  • More room behind the third row
  • More front headroom
  • More front legroom
  • More legroom in the second row


If you want more punch from your daily drive around Glenolden, the Ford Explorer offers a potent turbocharged four-cylinder V6 engine that can put out up to 365 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. This sets up the Explorer to have superior highway passing power and, when properly equipped, a towing capacity of up to 5,000 pounds.

The Honda Pilot only offers one powerplant: a V6 engine that caps out at around 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. That's good for light towing (about 1,500 pounds), but the Explorer has the Pilot soundly beaten in this category.
