Fuel Tank Capacity
Large Monroe families most often drive minivans or full-sized SUVs. They’re relatively similar segments, featuring powerful engines, high seating capacity, and roomy cargo bays. It’s understandable if you’re unsure of which vehicle is right for you. If that’s the case, explore our Honda Odyssey vs. Honda Pilot comparison to see how these two Honda models highlight the core differences between a minivan and an SUV. Then, apply for financing and reach out to Middletown Honda to schedule for a test drive to see if you lean more towards the Odyssey or Pilot.
Whether Warwick drivers choose the Odyssey or the Pilot, they’ll enjoy 280-hp 3.5L V6 engines. While the Odyssey barely beats out the Pilot when it comes to efficiency on the base trim, they offer nearly identical numbers across their respective model lines.
As for transmissions, the Honda Odyssey minivan offers a 9-speed automatic transmission with Shift-By-Wire (SBW) and Paddle Shifters on every trim, whereas the Honda Pilot SUV only offers the 9-speed automatic transmission (9AT) with Shift-By-Wire (SBW) and Paddle Shifters on the Touring trim and the configurations above it. As with speed and fuel economy, the differences are negligible.
On a final note, the Honda Pilot offers Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ All-Wheel Drive (AWD) as an upgrade, whereas the Odyssey doesn’t offer AWD.
Goshen drivers will find a lot of overlap in the cabins of the Honda Pilot and Honda Odyssey, from standard Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® and Audio Connectivity to optional features on higher trims like HondaLink®, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility, Honda CabinTalk™, and Honda satellite-linked navigation™. Again, the difference are few. Here’s a small list of optional features that are exclusive to each model:
Honda Sensing® is the Honda brand’s signature suite of driver-assist and safety technologies. This suite comes standard on the Honda Pilot, whereas you’ll have to upgrade to the EX trim on the Odyssey to get access:
Honda Sensing® Driver-Assist Features
Honda Sensing® Safety Features
