Performance Capabilities

The 2017 Toyota Highlander and 2017 Honda Pilot are both capable crossover SUVs offered with all-wheel drive and a selection of drive modes to choose from based on terrain and weather conditions. However, while both models are offered with a 3.5L V6 engine for real SUV muscle, you’ll end up getting greater performance out of the Highlander. By the numbers, the V6 engine on the Highlander produces a hardy 295 hp and 263 lb-ft of torque, while the V6 on the Pilot only gets 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque.

However, only the Highlander enjoys its advanced safety suite as standard equipment, which means even the base model gets Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, and Autonomous Emergency Braking. This way, no matter your budget, you know the Highlander has your back when it counts.
