Drivers in the Casper, Glenrock, Douglas, Riverton, Lander, and Worland area need a car that exudes power and a car that balances affordability, seating, and towing capacity. Now available at Honda of Casper, the 2016 Honda Pilot delivers in all of these areas. To illustrate this, let’s compare it to its closest competition, the 2016 Toyota Highlander.


Performance is where the 2016 Honda Pilot shines. Just compare the power of the two SUVs. The 2016 Honda Pilot features a a six-speed automatic transmission and an aluminum-alloy V-6 engine with 280 horsepower. Every model of the Pilot gets at least an estimated 26 mpg highway*, and it boasts a 19.5 gallon fuel tank, which means you’ll spend more time on the road and less time at the pump.

The 2016 Toyota Highlander only gets 25 mpg, and its fuel tank is only 19.2 gallons. These are small differences, but even minor discrepancies can become major inconveniences when choosing between cars. What’s more, the 2016 Honda Pilot gets 3,500-5,000 lbs of towing capacity, depending on the model, but the Highlander gets 1,500-5,000 lbs depending on the model. For some jobs, that just won’t be enough.


Power isn’t everything, though. You want a comfortable, safe SUV—not just a powerful one. The 2016 Honda Pilot again outshines the Highlander on these features:

  • Seats 8
  • Multi-angle rearview camera
  • Leather-trimmed interior available
  • Heated seats available
  • Bluetooth handsfree calling, SMS texting, and wireless audio streaming

  • Honda satellite-linked navigation system
2016 Toyota Highlander

  • Seats 8
  • Single-angle rearview camera
  • Fabric-trimmed interior
  • Heated front seats available
  • Bluetooth handsfree calling, and wireless audio streaming

The Highlander stands up well in a number of areas. However, the 2016 Pilot simply offers that little bit extra, and that little bit makes all the difference.

Which Vehicle is Right for You?

The case is clear: no matter what you need it for, the 2016 Honda Pilot delivers. The 2016 Toyota Highlander is a comfortable, quality car, but it gets edged out by the Pilot in every way. The only arena where the Highlander can even compare is in starting price, but even there the starting prices are almost identical. If the 2016 Honda Pilot offers higher quality for a competitive price, it is clearly the superior choice of SUV.
