Matt Castrucci Honda compares 2014 Honda Pilot and 2014 Toyota Highlander

Mid-size SUV comparison one of many conducted by the Dayton-based automotive dealership

DAYTON, Ohio, April 22, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Throughout the years, Honda vehicles have made their way to the top of best-seller lists as all of the automaker's offerings provide capabilities that are superior to comparable competitors. In an effort to show just how beneficial all of the Honda models are, Matt Castrucci Honda, an automotive dealership located in Dayton, Ohio, is providing consumers with vehicle comparisons that put Honda vehicles side-by-side with some of the other vehicles on the market.


The latest comparison conducted by Matt Castrucci Honda looks at the benefits of the 2014 Honda Pilot over the 2014 Toyota Highlander. The mid-size crossover comparison is extremely helpful for consumers looking for an SUV that is not only spacious, but powerful and fuel efficient as well. The Pilot and the Highlander are quite similar, but with a closer look at the capabilities that matter most to buyers in the market for a mid-size crossover SUV, it's clear to see that one of the models is more capable than the other.

Both of the 2014 models of the Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander are capable of producing the same combined fuel economy ratings of 21 mpg, but when it comes to power, the Pilot is slightly more beneficial. The standard V-6 engine of the Pilot produces more torque than the six-cylinder engine of the Highlander, allowing the SUV to achieve a standard towing capacity of 2,000 pounds. Towing is also more convenient in the Pilot, which comes standard with a trailer hitch.

Perhaps the most beneficial advantage of the 2014 Honda Pilot is that it's more affordable than the 2014 Toyota Highlander. The manufacturer's suggested retail price of the Pilot is just under $1,000 less, which equates to roughly three monthly payments. Consumers are sure to appreciate that the Pilot is just as capable, if not more capable than the Highlander, yet owning the 2014 Honda Pilot is more financially feasible. It's for that reason that the Honda Pilot continues to gain popularity among residents in the Dayton area.

In addition to the helpful model comparisons, Matt Castrucci Honda offers an arsenal of Honda model information. Rather than comparing models, the model information pages highlight each of the available Honda models individually. The newest model-specific web page added to the library of information highlights the 2015 Honda Fit, which recently arrived at the Dayton dealership, and is now available for sale.

Consumers interested in learning more about the benefits of the 2014 Honda Pilot over the 2014 Toyota Highlander are encouraged to visit the Matt Castrucci Honda website, where the complete mid-size crossover comparison can be accessed.
