Starting Price

While the 2016 Honda Pilot and Chevy Tahoe share some similarities, in other aspects, like price, they couldn't be more different. The Honda Pilot has been lauded for offering all the benefits of a modern family SUV at a highly affordable price, as it has a starting MSRP of $30,145. The 2016 Tahoe, meanwhile, starts out at a hefty $47,000, and when better-equipped, can easily skyrocket about $60,000. If you are in search of a mid-size SUV that provides great value for your family, then pass on the Tahoe and get into the affordable 2016 Honda Pilot!

Standard Fuel Economy

When it comes to standard fuel economy, the 2016 Honda Pilot and Chevrolet Tahoe are worlds apart. The Pilot's 3.5-liter V6 engine, connected to an automatic transmission, returns an impressive 19 city/27 highway/22 combined mpg EPA-estimated fuel economy rating in 2WD trim. The Chevy Tahoe's rather poor, EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 16 city/23 highway/18 combined mpg is mainly due to its large 5.3-liter V8 engine and its much heavier weight. If you use the combined mpg rating as the average for day-to-day driving, you will see that the 2016 Pilot has a four mpg advantage over Chevy's Tahoe. If you are looking for a spacious and capable SUV that won't cost you a fortune at the fuel pump, choose the Pilot!

Standard Horsepower and Performance

Every 2016 Honda Pilot is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine, producing a capable 280 hp and 262 lb.-ft. of torque. You can have your Pilot equipped with either 2WD or an advanced all-wheel drive system (AWD); either way, you will find that your new Honda SUV features stunning performance, matched with impressive efficiency. Chevy's Tahoe comes equipped with a 5.3-liter V8 engine as standard, and like the Pilot, can also be equipped with 2WD, or have power sent to all four wheels. While the Pilot's efficient V6 may be no match for the Tahoe's V8 when it comes to horsepower, things even out when you consider that the Pilot weighs in at a whopping 1,300 pounds less than the Tahoe. Acceleration and overall performance of these two SUVs are quite similar out on the roads, and with the Pilot, you get the bonus of superior fuel economy. If you want performance and fuel efficiency in your mid-size SUV, the choice is clear: the 2016 Honda Pilot.

Head Room and Standard Cargo Volume

The Honda Pilot may weigh significantly less than its rival from Chevy, but that doesn't mean that it gives up interior space when compared to the Tahoe. If you or any of your regular passengers are quite tall, you will especially want to check out the new Pilot, as it offers up to one inch of additional headroom when compared with the Chevy Tahoe. Third-row passengers will also notice a significant difference in space, as the Pilot's third row offers a whopping seven inches more of legroom! The 2016 Pilot also tops the Tahoe in standard cargo room, meaning when all rows of seating are in the upright position.

Safety Features and Technology

One of the many highlights of the 2016 Honda Pilot SUV's safety features is the Honda Sensing™ system, which includes a suite of smart technologies to better alert the driver to possible obstacles or collisions. The Road Departure Mitigation system utilizes a small camera, which identifies road markers, like lane dividers and raised pavement markers, and alerts the driver if it detects that the vehicle is about to leave the road; it can even take corrective action to avoid the vehicle from doing so! A Lane Keeping Assist System adjusts the steering wheel if it detects that the Pilot is straying from the center of the detected lane without signaling first. The Pilot's Adaptive Cruise Control helps you maintain a set following distance behind the vehicle in front of you, so you don't have to constantly change your speed manually. Honda's Collision Mitigation Braking System™ helps bring the 2016 Pilot to a stop if it detects an otherwise unavoidable collision with a vehicle in front of you. These are just a few of the highly advanced driver-assist technologies that you can find on the Pilot. A review of the available high-tech safety features on the 2016 Honda Pilot includes:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow (ACC)
  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Dynamic Guidelines
  • Lane departure warning system
  • Lane keeping assist system
  • Lane sway warning system
  • Pedestrian detection
  • Radar- or camera-based collision preparation system
  • Automatic braking, high-speed or partial
  • Forward collision warning

Safety Ratings

The 2016 Honda Pilot and Chevy Tahoe are both very safe SUVs, but the Pilot comes out on top once again, due to its 5-Star Overall Rating from the NHTSA. The Tahoe achieved a 4-Star Overall Rating in its crash tests, and faltered in the Rollover Safety Test, where it managed only a 3-Star Rating. On top of the better safety ratings, another great reason to choose the Pilot over the Tahoe is that Honda offers a more comprehensive package of safety features, including its popular Honda Sensing™ system.
