2022 Ford Explorer vs. 2022 Honda Pilot at Chapman Ford

The new 2022 Ford Explorer offers spacious comfort, impressive power, and deluxe features for every adventure. This SUV seats up to 7 people across three rows with an adjustable interior and a dashboard equipped with Ford's engaging SYNC 3 features.  While competitors like the 2022 Honda Pilot offer quite a lot, when compared to the new Ford the Pilot offers slightly lower fuel economy at an EPA-estimated 27 highway mpg-compared to the Ford's EPA-estimated 28 highway mpg.

Additionally, while the new Pilot arrives with optional AWD, the Ford Explorer comes with Intelligent 4WD with a Terrain Management System that includes seven selectable drive modes for ample traction in varying road conditions and terrain. Ultimately, the 2022 Ford Explorer comes out on top as the better SUV, but let's take a closer look at what each great vehicle has to offer.


Remarkable Power

The new 2022 Ford Explorer features an efficient and strong engine with three different option to choose from: a 2.3L EcoBoost engine that offers 300 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque, a rumbling 3.0L V6 EcoBoost engine that gives you 400 horsepower and 415 lb-ft of torque, and a versatile 3.3L V6 hybrid engine that supports you with 318 horsepower and 322 lb-ft of torque. The 2022 Honda Pilot comes with a V6 engine with 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque, which is powerful, but not in the same league as the new Explorer.

The Ford Explorer comes with a host of technology features that make every ride more comfortable and convenient. The Explorer's new touchscreen comes preloaded with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Amazon Alexa, and FordPass, enabling everyone in the vehicle to easily use 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspots.
