2015 Toyota Highlander vs. 2015 Honda Pilot

Before Driving a 2015 Toyota Highlander in Central Illinois…

Central Illinois drivers looking for that new SUV might be tempted by the 2015 Toyota Highlander‘s history, but is it the right crossover SUV for you or your family? Entry-level Highlander LE models come with features like a rearview camera, Bluetooth connectivity, and a 6.1-inch touchscreen, but it does come up short of many competing SUVs. The Highlander has a standard four-cylinder engine with 185 hp and up to 25 highway mpg, but if you need all-wheel drive, you’ll have to upgrade the Highlander to its V6 engine. There are many solid features you can upgrade to, wouldn’t it be nice to drive a well-equipped SUV without having to upgrade?

There can be only one SUV that fits your needs just right, and we think that when you want a fuel-efficient, powerful, spacious, and state-of-the-art SUV, you need only look to the 2015 Honda Pilot. Available now at Central Illinois Honda Dealers, basic 2015 Pilot LX models are helping redefine the idea of what “standard features” should be thanks to standard amenities like an Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, SMS texting capabilities, Pandora internet radio, a rearview camera with guidelines, and tri-zone climate control. Add in the Pilot’s standard 250-hp V6 engine and the 2015 Pilot 2WD’s EPA-estimated 25 mpg highway fuel economy,* and it’s easy to see which SUV comes out ahead when comparing the Pilot and the Highlander.
