The 2017 Honda Pilot is a premium SUV that has a lineup of five editions. The 2017 Chevy Tahoe is also a reliable SUV that comes in three trims. Featuring the Variable Cylinder Management and Active Noise Cancellation, the Pilot offers a smoother ride than the Tahoe. Both models have advanced accident-avoidance systems, but the Pilot offers better active safety features that are powered by the Honda Sensing technology.



The 2017 Honda Pilot runs on the i-VTEC V6 engine that uses direct fuel injection for efficient combustion. Depending on traffic conditions, the Variable Cylinder Management will disengage some of the engine's cylinders in order to conserve gasoline. Additionally, the Eco Assist System optimizes the Honda Pilot on suburban roads and highways. In urban settings, the Idle Stop function will keep this SUV running efficiently. Thanks to the Active Noise Cancellation and Active Control Engine Mount System, this Honda offers a quiet and smooth ride. Although the Chevy Tahoe's EcoTec3 V8 engine is quite powerful, it wasn't designed with efficiency as a top priority. With a curb weight of just over 4,000 pounds, the Honda Pilot is quite agile for an SUV. This model also gets good traction through the Intelligent Variable Torque Management (i-VTM4) AWD System. The Intelligent Traction Management gives the Pilot enough confidence to handle snow, mud, sand and other rough terrains. The Chevy Tahoe's AWD and Autotrac transfer case are sophisticated, but they still don't match the capabilities of the i-VTM4 system.


The Honda Sensing package adds several accident-avoidance features to the 2017 Honda Pilot. Front crashes are unlikely to occur when the Collision Mitigation Braking System turns on. If you don't react to the vehicle's Forward Collision Warning, then the automatic braking function will take over. The Chevy Tahoe's Low Speed Forward Automatic Braking and Forward Collision Alert also reduce the risk of accidents. Capable of issuing audible and visible cues during critical situations, the Lane Departure Warning and Road Departure Mitigation System are some other Honda Sensing installations. When combined with the Lane Keeping Assist System, these features are more advanced than the Tahoe's Lane Change Alert and Lane Keep Assist. With the Honda LaneWatch, you'll also get a wide-angle view of your surroundings while attempting to merge into an adjacent lane. Additionally, you could use the Blind Spot Monitoring and Cross Traffic Monitor to safely drive on the highway. By turning on the Adaptive Cruise Control, you'll know that the Honda Pilot will maintain a steady speed or automatically slow down as necessary.


A 10-way power driver's seat is installed in the 2017 Honda Pilot. This advanced seat includes lumbar supports and a memory system for two positions. Heating is available in the vehicle's front seats and second-row captain's chairs. The third row in the Honda Pilot includes a 60/40 flat-folding bench seat that can accommodate up to three people. Premium leather upholstery with perforations covers the seats in the Pilot and Tahoe. Both SUVs also come with tri-zone automatic climate control systems with cabin filters. Additionally, the Honda Pilot's HVAC system offers humidity control for extra comfort.
