When you are looking for a new vehicle, you might feel overwhelmed by all of the options out there for models that appear very similar on the surface. That is why doing comparisons can come in handy, because it allows you to put two models that seem similar up side by side to examine their differences and determine which one will provide more of the features and capabilities you are looking for. This comparison looks at the base models of the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs 2018 Honda Pilot.
While the Honda Pilot offers more seating space, fitting up to eight passengers compared to just five passengers in the Grand Cherokee, and it has slightly higher fuel economy ratings, reaching 22 combined mpg versus 21 combined mpg estimated in the Grand Cherokee, it does not offer nearly as many comfort, safety, and convenience features as the Jeep Grand Cherokee does, which is why the Grand Cherokee is the better option for consumers overall. Let's take a closer look at some of the key features and differences between these two models!
