2022 Honda Pilot vs 2022 Toyota 4Runner

2022 Honda Pilot vs 2022 Toyota 4Runner

Mid-size SUVs are the sweet spot in the SUV segment as they offer just as much practicality and space as power and demeanor, and this makes them a vehicle of choice by a vast majority of SUV buyers. And two mid-size SUVs stand out in this segment, and they are the Honda Pilot and the Toyota 4Runner. Both these SUVs offer a wide range of features and configurations along with peppy and potent powertrains making them preferred choices in the segment. That said, both these SUVs go head to head making them stiff competitors in a blood thirsty segment. Let’s look at what each one of them has to offer.

The 2022 version of the Honda Pilot receives a list of updates that include full LED headlights, an eight-inch touchscreen display with Android Auto & Apple CarPlay capability, addition of a new Sonic Gray Pearl exterior color, and the discontinuation of the LX and EX trim levels. On the other hand, the 4Runner gets a new TRD Sport trim and new LED high-beam headlights. Interested in any one of these SUVs? Contact us today to know more.

Both the SUVs have similar power offerings. The Honda Pilot has a 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque power output while the Toyota 4Runner comes really close with 270 horsepower and 278 pound-feet of torque. The Honda Pilot comes with a smooth-shifting nine-speed automatic transmission compared to the 4Runner’s five-speed automatic transmission that is not as refined. The Pilot offers front-wheel drive as standard while the 4Runner’s come with rear-wheel drive as standard. Both the SUVs can be configured with four-wheel drive system. Towing capacity of both the SUVs are similar. One small advantage that the 2022 Pilot has over the 4Runner is its lower curb weight of 4,041 pounds compared to the 4Runner’s 4,400-pound weight giving it a small performance push. But again, the 4Runner’s nine-inch ground clearance makes it a lot more practical than the Pilot which has a 7.3-inch ground clearance.

Coming to the interiors, the Honda Piot comes standard with an eight-seat configuration which helps in accommodating a lot more occupants compared to the five-passenger capacity of the 4Runner. Not to forget that 4Runner can also be configured with optional third-row seats. Coming to features, both the SUVs offer a wide array of technological features like Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and Bluetooth connectivity. The Toyota 4Runner goes a step above providing Wi-Fi Hotspot capability and SiriusXM subscription standard on all the trims. That said, all the other features are pretty much standard on both the trims. Both the vehicles offer a good amount of comfort with ample amount of space for all passengers.

Both the vehicles have a wide array of standard safety features like Lane-Keeping Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning, and Tire Pressure Monitoring System, to name some of them. This makes both the SUVs fitting competitors, as well as considerable options for customers.
