Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility has been added to Pilots with the 8-inch touchscreen (EX and above). Otherwise, the Pilot carries over unchanged.

Pros
A versatile, roomy interior with spacious rear seats
Ride is smooth and compliant in most conditions
Better fuel economy than rivals
Multiple clever storage compartments

Cons
Nine-speed automatic transmission lacks refinement
Collision warning and adaptive cruise control are overly sensitive
Third-row access is narrow
Touchscreen interface isn't very intuitive

The 2017 Honda Pilot ranks 3 out of 18 Midsize SUVs. Though it’s a little more expensive than other midsize SUVs, its standard V6, roomy cabin, and available active safety features make the 2017 Honda Pilot a smart choice.

Pros
Plush, roomy seats
Adult-friendly third row
Cavernous cargo bay
Great safety scores

Cons
Complicated audio and climate controls

By:

The 2017 Honda Pilot is a capable, refined crossover SUV with all the goodness of a minivan, save for the sliding doors.
The Honda Pilot was one of the first big crossovers to completely shun the old SUV idiom. No blocky, bluff styling, no truck-like frame, no rugged low-ratio transfer case or knobby off-road tires. The first Pilot had slim roof pillars, a cushy Civic-like cabin, and lots of seats.

Pros
The boxy look's been banished
Lavish new interior light-years ahead of the old
Better seats, better cargo space
Android interface, lots of ports for plugs
Gas-mileage gains

Cons
Maybe not as distinctive in styling
9-speed automatic can get confused
Blind-spot monitors only on most expensive model
One-touch seats only on EX-L and pricier models

The 2018 Chevrolet Suburban ranked #4 in Large SUVs. Currently the Chevrolet Suburban has a score of 8.1 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 22 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Comfortable ride
Spacious, upscale cabin
Outstanding cargo space

Cons
Lower towing capacity than rivals
Generation earns subpar predicted reliability ratings
Lower safety score than rivals

By:

The 2018 Chevrolet Suburban is the ultimate weekend road-trip vehicle ready to haul nine people, their luggage, and even an 8,300 pound trailer. Try that in a crossover.

Pros
Upscale interior
Strong V-8 engine
Superlative towing ability
More fuel efficient than you might think

Cons
High cargo floor
Rides more like a truck than rivals
Expensive at every level
Throwback looks

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Unless you need the Suburban's nine-passenger configuration (which is only available on the base LS model), we recommend going with the midlevel LT trim. It comes with a substantial amount of standard equipment and is a solid pick as is. But we'd suggest getting the Luxury package to add some useful driver safety aids and a power liftgate.

Pros
Seating for up to nine passengers
Cargo capacity is generous
Strong V8 engine can tow and haul plenty of cargo

Cons
Maneuvering in tight spaces is challenging
High cargo floor means more effort to load objects
Lazy gas pedal response makes engine feel weaker than rated
