Both the vehicles are two mid-size vehicles, which are at same price points. But all you need to do is which one is better so you can invest in any one of them. Let us look at the quick facts first. GMC Acadia is related to Chevrolet Traverse & the Buick Enclave which were also similar vehicles. On the other hand the Honda pilot shares its design with Honda Ridgeline & Honda Passport. Let us have a look at them one by one for better understanding.
2021 GMC Acadia
The base price of 2021 GMC Acadia is around $30,000 – $32,000. The best aspects about it are the choice of three engines, available AT4 off road version & modern infotainment system. But still we would like to see some changes in it too like love to see a bigger cargo, better third seat options, active safety features & standard lower trims. So, let us have a look in depth at what all we can expect from 2021 GMC Acadia.
It comes in a few variants mostly in 2-2-2 configurations except for the base SL thay gets a middle row bench and one version which is off-road themed AT4 that skips the third row. You can find loads of passenger space but in some models it is limited to 12.8 cubic feet only. You can find a trio of engines which are offered by GMC: a 2.5 liter four, a 2.5 liter turbo four, and a liter V6. The 2.0 liter can be paired only with FWD that generates 193 HP & can two 1,000 pounds. The V6 is standard on the AT4 & Denali that delivers 310 HP & can tow 4,000 pounds.
In the new 2021 model there is a new trim package for the SLE & SLT with amazing & new wheels, grille, roof rack, & other exterior elements. You will find wireless versions of Apple CarPlay/Android auto in the cars.
The Acadia 2021 is offered in 5 trims which are SL, SLE, SLT, AT4 & Denali trims. If we talk about road themed AT4 is very simple & clean AWD system & hill control. You can also find blind spot monitoring & rear cross traffic alerts are standard. In the SLT, AT4 & Denali additionally have forward collision warning along with pedestrian detection & even automatic emergency braking. In all these trims models, you will find a user-friendly infotainment system with an 8 inch touchscreen in all the trims panel.
2021 Honda Pilot
The Honda Pilot is priced at $33,000. The best thing we like about the Honda Pilot is its spacious interior with usable third row, standard V6 engine & hard body exterior which makes it a strong resale value. There are few things which we will update as an off road themed variant so it would give a sport themed version.
If you are looking for a family friendly three row SUV then this is the car for you. It is powered by a 3.5 liter V6 making 280 horsepower & 262 lb-ft of torque paired with a nine-speed automatic. It has a maximum cargo space of 82.1-83.9 cubic feet, & there’s 16.5 cubic feet behind the third row.
The 2021 Honda Pilot is sold in LX, EX, EX-L, SE, Touring, Elite, and Black Edition trim levels. Forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assistance, and adaptive cruise control are standard on all trims. Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are included on all but the base LX. Besides those two safety features, the EX also brings a power driver’s seat, heated front seats, and the 8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Leather seating is the big add-on with the EX-L, which also includes a power liftgate, second-row sunshades, and an acoustic windshield.
Here we have mentioned the specifications of both the SUVs. So GMC’s V6 is more powerful than the Honda’s but it costs extra as it is not fuel efficient. So you can go for either of the vehicles whichever suits your needs & budget. We hope we have helped you with this information.
