Honda Pilot vs. Acura MDX: Pricing & Performance

If you’re like most Brandon-area drivers, the sticker price is going to be one of the most important factors when choosing a new SUV. Looking at the Honda Pilot vs. Acura MDX, you’ll find that the Honda SUV comes in at $12,850 less than the Acura. That could be a game-changer for many.

With either the Pilot or MDX, you’ll enjoy standard V6 power. Under the hood of the Pilot is an i-VTEC® V6 engine that can deliver up to 280 hp, while the Acura i-VTEC® V6 can provide 290 hp. The Pilot is available with AWD, as is the MDX, and both offer a maximum towing capacity of up to 3,500 pounds, which is enough to haul a small travel trailer or boat out to Lake Claude Bennett.

With a three-row SUV, Jackson drivers can enjoy a comfortable cabin with plenty of room for both passengers and cargo. The Honda Pilot and the Acura MDX deliver just that, although the Pilot interior offers more room for you, your passengers, and everything you want to bring with you:
