When buying a mid-size three-row SUV, chances are that one of the number one consideration for you is interior space. Whether it's cargo space or passenger space, versatility is important to buyers in this segment. The 2021 Honda Pilot and the 2021 Ford Explorer are among the most spacious models in their class, but the Pilot has a clear advantage.

It also has the advantage in terms of safety, reliability history, and even price. Let's take a closer look.

More space in the 2021 Honda Pilot

The first thing that sets the 2021 Honda Pilot apart not only from the Ford Explorer but from the rest of the mid-size three-row segment is interior space. The Honda Pilot is the only SUV in its class to offer more than 3,000 liters of total cargo space, about 500 liters more than the Ford Explorer.

When we know that a Honda Civic offers just under 400 liters of cargo space, we see that the difference between the Pilot 2021 and the Explorer 2021 is notable. Indeed, you have the equivalent of a second vehicle more in terms of space in the Honda Pilot 2021. With all the seats in place, the cargo space is similar between the Honda Pilot and the Ford Explorer, but space for passengers, regardless of row, is superior in the 2021 Honda Pilot.

We also have to talk about the value offered in the 2021 Honda Pilot. Although both SUVs are offered at about the same starting price, the Pilot has more equipment from the base model. Plus, if you take a look at the best-equipped models from the Pilot and Explorer lines, respectively, you'll be entitled to just as much gear in the Pilot, but for about $ 10,000 less.

The 2021 Honda Pilot offers the Honda Sensing suite of technologies as standard, including adaptive cruise control, automatic braking with pedestrian detection and collision mitigation, lane departure detection and prevention and a host of other technologies. In addition, the Pilot offers airbags up to the third row.

The Honda Pilot ultimately has a better reputation for reliability. The Pilot has also obtained a better safety rating and offers better resale value. In short, when it comes to a three-row SUV, the Pilot has the edge where it counts. Come learn more today!
