While both the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the latest Honda Pilot are admirable crossover utility vehicles, you’ll find that the Grand Cherokee simply doesn’t offer the level of standard equipment that is offered in the Pilot. When it comes to safety, technology, communications, and comfort features, the Pilot is simply better equipped.
Base Trim Comparison
Compare base trim levels and you’ll find that the Honda Pilot comes out ahead when it comes to both price and standard equipment. The Pilot 2WD LX is priced at $31,045 MSRP,* and the Jeep Grand Cherokee starts at $33,745 MSRP. The Pilot comes with features that are missing from the Grand Cherokee, including:
- Variable Assisted Steering
- Second- and Third-Row Head Restraints
- Split Third-Row Seat
- Seating for eight—the Grand Cherokee only seats five
- Rearview Camera
Mid-Level Trim Comparison
The Honda Pilot 2WD EX is priced at $32,580 MSRP,* and the Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited starts at $37,365 MSRP. Even with that big price difference, you’ll find some important features in the Pilot that are missing in the Jeep. Those include voice-activated controls for audio and Bluetooth, and rear-seat heating and air-conditioning controls.
Top-Tier Trim Comparison
The 2016 Honda Pilot Elite is priced at $46,570 MSRP,* while the Grand Cherokee Summit starts at $52,595 MSRP. In this trim level, the Honda Pilot includes a remote tailgate release and power liftgate, rear sound controls, and the Honda Sensing safety system, featuring forward collision prevention, adaptive cruise control, and more. The Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit doesn’t offer any of those features in the top-tier Summit trim.
