2017 Nissan Pathfinder vs 2017 Honda Pilot near Orland Park, IL

2017 Nissan Pathfinder vs 2017 Honda Pilot near Orland Park, IL

*Vehicle shown above (left photo) is the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder Platinum in Brilliant Silver with optional equipment. 

There's Plenty of Space for Everyone in the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder.

When it’s time to buy a mid-size crossover SUV, we at Thomas Nissan of Joliet want to make sure you pick the right one. This matchup between the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder and 2017 Honda Pilot will surely aid in your decision. It’s time to discover why the Pathfinder is the better of the two options.

First of all, the 2017 Pathfinder performs with the power and stamina you expect in a top-notch SUV. Its standard 3.5L V-6 engine churns out an impressive 284 horsepower, while the Pilot’s 3.5L V-6 engine only manages to supply 280 horsepower. The latest Pilot reaches a fuel efficiency rating of 18/26 MPG city/hwy1 in AWD and 19/27 MPG city/hwy1 in 2WD. However, the current Pathfinder achieves an astounding fuel efficiency rating of 19/26 MPG city/hwy2 in AWD and 20/27 MPG city/hwy2 in 2WD. With a highway cruising range of 526.5 miles, the 2017 Pathfinder leaves the 2017 Pilot in the dust with its 507-mile highway cruising range. Thanks to the Pathfinder’s available hill descent control3, maintaining control while driving downhill is a cinch. Unfortunately, the Pilot does not offer this feature as an option at all. As you can see, the current Pathfinder wins this battle, hands-down.

Standing out on the road is important in more ways than one. Not only do you want to drive a car that looks good, you also want other drivers to see you coming.  As you head to Orland Square Mall, admirers are sure to notice the 2017 Pathfinder’s dazzling LED daytime running lights. Standard dual power outside mirrors with LED turn signal indicators on the Pathfinder make it easy for other drivers to tell when you are changing lanes. Roof rails and chrome door handles come standard on the Pathfinder, adding a sporty flair to its elegant appearance. The 2017 Pilot fails to distinguish itself in the same way, with its body-colored door handles and standard halogen headlights. Roof rails and dual power outside mirrors with LED turn signal indicators are only available in the Pilot’s higher trims.

Last but not least, the current Pathfinder offers a surplus of space for you and all your passengers to enjoy. Its 42.2 inches of front headroom and 42.3 inches of front legroom mean you can spread out with room to spare. The current Pilot cuts it close, with just 39.5 inches of front headroom and 40.9 inches of front legroom. Also, their passengers have a mere 38.4 inches of legroom and 152.9 cubic ft. of total volume to utilize. Meanwhile, Nissan Pathfinder passengers can take advantage of a whopping 41.7 inches of rear legroom, as well as a gargantuan 157.8 cubic ft. of total volume to stretch out in. This extra space is definitely a welcome bonus, especially when carpooling or traveling long distances.

With a commodious cabin, brilliant exterior, and prominent performance, the Pathfinder takes home the crown in this duel between the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder vs 2017 Honda Pilot near Orland Park, IL. Come see the 2017 Pathfinder for yourself, here at Thomas Nissan of Joliet. We are always more than willing to assist our customers with any questions or concerns. We look forward to your visit!
