It's not a secret that the 2023 Ford Expedition has been dominating the SUV market. With its rugged exterior, flexible interior, and powerful engine, it's no wonder why this vehicle has become so popular among families. However, it has some competition from other SUVs in its class: the 2023 Honda Pilot. Let's take a look at how these two vehicles stack up against one another to see which is better for you and your family:
Design & Style
- Exterior Design
The 2023 Ford Expedition and the 2023 Honda Pilot have been completely redesigned. The new models have a modern look with sharp lines to make them stand out in a crowd. Both SUVs also have an aerodynamic body style and large wheels to give them an athletic look.
The 2023 Ford Expedition has a long hood, wide fenders, and sleek headlights that give it an aggressive appearance. The hood features two stylish vents that run from front to back along its length, while the headlights feature distinctive LED daytime running lights that run across the top edge of each headlight assembly. This SUV also comes equipped with a Sport model for those who want something more aggressive than their standard model's appearance; these come equipped with larger tires and other styling changes like blacked-out grille inserts for an even more dramatic look!
The 2023 Honda Pilot may not be as striking as its competitor from Ford Motor Company. Still, it does offer some attractive design elements of its own, including full LED taillights that sweep across most of this SUV's rear end - including around each side mirror - giving this vehicle ample lighting visibility when driving at night or during inclement weather conditions (rain/snow).
- Interior Design
As for the interior design, there's little to say about the 2023 Ford Expedition. It may be outdated and bulky, but it can get the job done. The Honda Pilot is a bit nicer with its dual-screen system, but it has some quirks that need to be corrected.
In terms of space and comfort, the 2023 Ford Expedition wins again due to its sheer size and large seating capacity. The Honda Pilot is alright, too; it doesn't have as much room as its opponent here does.
Technology & Safety
Technology is a big part of the driving experience in this vehicle class, and there are some significant differences between the two vehicles.
The Ford Expedition boasts an impressive 22-speaker, B&O sound system with 1,000 watts of power. You can also connect your phone wirelessly to the car's SYNC 3 infotainment system for easy access to your favorite apps and music. The Honda Pilot has an 8-speaker audio system that only offers about half as much power as Ford's B&O system (650 watts). However, it has a built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot that lets you connect up to eight devices at once—a feature we don't see in many other vehicles on the market today.
Both cars have safety features like lane keep assist and adaptive cruise control but differ quite significantly in terms of their radar detection capabilities. The 2023 Ford Expedition has rear cross-traffic alert, while the 2023 Honda Pilot doesn't offer any blind spot monitoring at all!
The 2023 Ford Expedition comes standard with a 3.5L V6 EcoBoost engine, while the 2023 Honda Pilot is equipped with a 3.5L V6 SOHC i-VTEC engine. Both of these engines are highly efficient and produce similar levels of power and torque, but they differ in their design and performance characteristics.
The Bottom Line
Overall, the Ford Expedition wins. It has a more powerful engine, more cargo space, and more safety features than the Honda Pilot. It's also significantly cheaper to buy, and the cost of ownership is lower than its rival.
