Weak acceleration

There are only a few minor changes in available features for the 2018 Lexus GX 460.If you're seriously considering the GX 460, you probably want to venture off-road in it. But if that's the case, you'll want the added ground clearance the Luxury trim's adaptive air suspension provides. Without it, the GX 460's ground clearance is worse than some crossovers.

PROS
Impressive off-road capability in a segment largely without it
High view out
Easy-to-use interior controls

CONS
Rough ride on broken pavement
Poor fuel economy and acceleration
Seats are uncomfortable
Compromised cargo space and third-row seat

The Lexus GX 460 pairs scads of off-road hardware with lots of luxury trim, but most drivers will be better off with a crossover.

Pros
Solid truck feel
Strong, smooth V-8
Smothering ride
Comfortable cabin
Lots of off-road tech

Cons
Tailgate opens sideways
Light steering
Poor fuel economy
Brake feel
Shallow, narrow cargo area

By:

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
