Always a valid consideration with a large SUV, this turned out to be a pretty close competition. The standard 3.6-liter V6 that propels the Jeep Grand Cherokee produces 295 horsepower to top the Pilot's 3.5-liter V6 and its output of 280 horsepower, but the Pilot narrowly tops the Grand Cherokee when it comes to pound-feet of torque.

However, the Grand Cherokee has available -- and powerful -- HEMI® V8 engines that come with the SRT and Trackhawk trim levels; the Honda only offers the one engine throughout the entire trim lineup.

If you ever need to tow something behind your SUV, you'll want to consider the Grand Cherokee. It boasts a trailer weight rating more than twice that of the Pilot's.


These aren't the basic SUVs of yesteryear, so each of the competitors comes loaded with standard features -- even for the introductory trim levels. However, the base model Grand Cherokee includes some standard features that the Pilot doesn't offer, like heated mirrors, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a rear parking aid. Those extras make quite a difference if you're operating on a budget.


Both SUVs come with the same coverage when it comes to basic new car, drivetrain, and corrosion protection. The Pilot comes with a 3-year/36,000-mile Roadside Assistance plan, which pales when compared to the 5-year/60,000-mile coverage that the Grand Cherokee enjoys.
