2016 Chevrolet Suburban
2016 Honda Pilot
If you’re in the market for an SUV with power, size, and cutting-edge technology, the 2016 Chevrolet Suburban is the right vehicle for you. To help you explore the advantages of the Suburban, we at Tom Gill Chevrolet have compared it with the 2016 Honda Pilot, a leading mid-sized SUV.
Power and Towing
Searching for a vehicle that can handle the streets of Cincinnati and Florence? The Chevrolet Suburban wins hands down in horsepower. The 5.3L V8 engine provides 355 hp, while the Pilot’s 3.5L V6 only reaches 280 hp. When considering torque, the results are similar: 383 lb-ft for the Suburban, and 262 lb-ft for the Pilot.
The Suburban has a decisive lead in towing capacity as well. While the 2WD Honda Pilot manages 3,500 lbs, all models of the 2016 Chevrolet Suburban are rated for 8,300 lbs of towing. If you’re looking to take a boat down to East Fork Lake over the weekend, the Suburban gives you the power to haul whatever vessel you’re towing.
Enough Size for a Comfortable Ride
No matter how you measure it, the 2016 Chevrolet Suburban is a larger vehicle than the 2016 Honda Pilot:
- Overall Width: 80.5 inches vs. 78.6 inches
- Wheelbase: 130 inches vs. 111 inches
- Overall Height: 74.4 inches vs. 69.9 inches
The Suburban interior is larger as well, providing the space to haul construction materials for weekend projects around the home. While the Pilot offers 83.9 cubic feet of space behind the first row, the Suburban boasts an impressive 121.7 cubic feet. It also offers a more comfortable, spacious ride for all your passengers, beating the 2016 Honda Pilot on both front and rear head room.
At all trim levels, the Suburban has more up-to-date technology options than the Pilot:
- The 8-inch touchscreen is standard for all 2016 Suburban trim levels. While the Pilot has a similar system, Edmunds criticized its touchscreen, noting that the “interface isn't intuitive.”
- The LT and LTZ models of the 2016 Chevrolet Suburban feature the Lane Departure Warning System, while comparable trim levels of the 2016 Honda Pilot do not.
- The Suburban’s Vehicle Communications and Assistance Service from Onstar seamlessly integrates hands free calling, automatic crash response, and even functions as a 4G hotspot.
