Family SUV Comparison: 2022 Toyota Highlander Vs. 2022 Honda Pilot

2022 Toyota Highlander Vs. 2022 Honda Pilot

Toyota's hot-selling Highlander mid-size crossover SUV is here for the 2022 model year! It goes head-to-head with other three-row vehicles to provide families with a smart alternative to larger and pricier SUVs.

The 2022 Toyota Highlander is one impressive crossover SUV, but motorists may be wondering how it compares to other options in the three-row SUV segment, like the 2022 Honda Pilot.

While the aging Honda Pilot has received minor updates as of late, in many ways, it simply cannot compete with the fresh style and amenities of the 2022 Toyota Highlander.

Let's take a look at these two mid-size family vehicles and help you decide which may be a better fit for your family.

Power & Fuel Economy

The 2022 Toyota Highlander and 2022 Honda Pilot utilize a 3.5-liter V6 engine connected to an automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive (FWD) is standard on both models, with all-wheel drive (AWD) available.

The 2022 Highlander's potent V6 engine generates more power, rated at 295 hp, coupled with an 8-speed automatic that helps ensure maximum efficiency. This Toyota family SUV returns a stellar EPA-estimated 29 mpg** highway rating.

With the 2022 Honda Pilot, drivers can expect up to an EPA-estimated 27 mpg** highway from the SUV's 280-hp V6 engine. Honda's 9-speed automatic now comes standard, yet the Pilot still can't match the Highlander's highway fuel efficiency.

If you'd like to tow a boat or trailer with your new family vehicle, then both the 2022 Highlander and Pilot models can assist since each offers a max tow rating of 5,000 pounds. If you want to determine if the new Highlander's performance advantages translate to a better choice for your family, then it's time to head over from nearby Brandon, FL, to our dealership for a test drive!

Cabin Technologies

When you're looking to maximize modern in-vehicle technology and safety systems in your new family hauler, you'll be impressed by what the 2022 Toyota Highlander delivers! This roomy ride comes fitted with an 8-inch touchscreen display equipped with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® capability. A 12.3-inch touchscreen display complete with integrated Dynamic Navigation is available.

Contrasting the 2022 Highlander's huge, high-tech touchscreen multimedia interface with the aging Honda Pilot's system, and you'll agree this is yet another decisive win for the Toyota. The Pilot's 8-inch touchscreen can't match the available 12.3-inch setup in the Highlander.

Where Honda's Pilot boasts a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera, the 2022 Highlander is offered with an available bird's eye view camera, which may provide a more expansive view of your surroundings.

Moving onto safety technology, the fresh new 2022 Highlander treats motorists and their families to the forward-thinking Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 suite of driver-assistance features. This high-tech package includes many systems designed to keep drivers alert and all occupants safer.

Every 2022 Highlander boasts the following advanced safety systems:

  • Updated Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
  • Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
  • Automatic High Beams
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
  • Lane Tracing Assist
  • Road Sign Assist

Honda's 2022 Pilot features a package of driver aids including adaptive cruise control, a pre-collision system and lane-keeping assist to enhance on-road confidence, but it lacks some technologies that the new Highlander and its Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 suite provide.

With intelligent Toyota safety systems like Road Sign Assist, your 2022 Highlander can display helpful road information like the current speed limit.
