2015 Nissan Pathfinder vs. 2015 Honda Pilot

News for Central Illinois Drivers Shopping for the 2015 Nissan Pathfinder…

Are you looking around for a new SUV in Central Illinois? Is the 2015 Nissan Pathfinder on your list? If you can afford an upgrade to a higher trim level, the Pathfinder could make for a decent SUV; its 3.5L V6 engine, seven-person seating, and four different trims make it appealing. But the basic Nissan Pathfinder S comes up short on amenities, with standard features limited to a height-adjustable driver’s seat, cruise control, power accessories, air conditioning, and tri-zone climate control. You will need to upgrade it to access even expected connectivity features like Bluetooth.

Would you like an SUV that’s already well-equipped from the start, has a fuel efficient and powerful engine under the hood, and offers more cargo storage space than the Pathfinder? Then you want the 2015 Honda Pilot. Honda’s SUV seats up to eight passengers, expands its cargo area up to 87.0 cubic feet, and comes with standard features shaking the foundation of the auto world on even the basic LX trim. Honda’s push to redefine the idea of standard features has the LX trim level include Bluetooth phone and audio, a touchscreen infotainment system, a rearview camera, and tri-zone climate control. Each Honda Pilot comes with a 250-hp 3.5L V6 engine, and 2015 Pilot 2WD models earn an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 25 highway mpg.*
