2017 Nissan Pathfinder

2017 Nissan Pathfinder vs 2017 Honda Pilot in Joliet, IL

If you’re looking to upgrade your family's three-row crossover, but aren’t sure which of the many options on the market is right for you, let us help here at Thomas Nissan! We know you’ll love everything about the all-new Pathfinder, so much, in fact, we have compared it to one of its top competitors. So, instead of spending all weekend researching, take advantage of this 2017 Nissan Pathfinder vs 2017 Honda Pilot in Joliet, IL, comparison.

To start things off, we took a look at what awaits under each hood. Both the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder and the 2017 Honda Pilot are powered by a standard 3.5L V6 engine. However, the one in the Pathfinder edges out the Pilot’s engine with 284 horsepower, compared to 280 horsepower. The same can be said for fuel efficiency, as the Pathfinder squeaks by the Pilot with a rating of 20/27 MPG city/hwy1, the Pilot’s rating just falls short with 19/27 MPG city/hwy2. Most notably, perhaps, is the fact that the Pathfinder has a standard 6,000-lb. towing capacity3, making it easy to bring your boat out to Lake Michigan. You may not be able to haul as much when you drive the Pilot, as it only has a maximum 5,000-lb. towing capacity4.

Our head-to-head between the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder vs the 2017 Honda Pilot in Joliet, IL, also compares exterior features. You are sure to notice right away that the Pathfinder comes standard with roof rails5 – a feature only found in higher trims of the Pilot. Also, the Pathfinder provides greater visibility than the Pilot with its standard LED Daytime Running Lights, another element that is only in top trims of the Pilot. In terms of convenience, you’ll find remote keyless entry as standard on the Pathfinder. And, when your hands are full of groceries from Jewel-Osco, the Pathfinder has the available Motion Activated Liftgate. Just kick your foot under the rear bumper and it’ll open automatically. No such feature is found in any trim of the Pilot.

If you plan on spending a lot of time in your three-row crossover, you want to make sure it’s supremely comfortable and feature-packed. In the 2017 Pathfinder, Tri-Zone Climate Control is standard, which is only found in higher trims of the 2017 Pilot. When road-tripping to Milwaukee, both options have an available rear entertainment system. In the Pilot, you’ll have a 9-inch flip-down monitor with DVD and Blu-Ray Disc™ compatibility. However, the Pathfinder boasts, the Tri-Zone Entertainment System6, which includes dual 8-inch monitors mounted on the back of the front headrests, where your little ones can watch movies, play video games, and even hook up to a laptop.

In terms of tech up front, the Nissan Pathfinder prevails over the Honda Pilot here, too. The Pathfinder has a standard 8-inch multi-touch display, while the Pilot only has a measly 5-inch LCD screen as standard. In the Pathfinder, this comes equipped with SiriusXM® Satellite Radio7 and HD Radio™, both standard. You’ll only find such musical options in top trims of the Pilot. Additionally, only the Pathfinder has the available Around View® Monitor8, showing you a 360-degree view around your vehicle, which is sure to come in handy when parking in downtown Chicago.

Our side-by-side look at the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder vs the 2017 Honda Pilot in Joliet, IL, has a clear winner – the Pathfinder. When you’re ready to take one for a test drive, visit us here at Thomas Nissan, or give us a call to schedule a cruise down North Larkin Avenue at 815-741-5353.
