Find out more below!  

Honda Pilot vs. Chevy Traverse: Fuel Economy

While fuel economy is important to many drivers, it is even more important for drivers who are constantly on the road, taking their family to places whether that is dropping their kids off at school or dropping their partner off to work. Let’s take a look at how the MPG ratings compare between the 2022 Honda Pilot and 2021 Chevy Traverse on their respective lowest trims for both FWD and AWD below!

Save some money no matter how much you need to drive on the North Salt Lake roads with a new Pilot! You can also save some before you hit the road when you use the new Honda specials at Performance Honda Bountiful during your purchase. 

Honda Pilot vs. Chevy Traverse: Convenience & Comfort 

Besides saving gas money on constant commuting, you might be wondering how comfortable and convenient these SUVs are on longer rides. Driving with 8 passengers can sometimes get chaotic, especially when you’ve been on the roads for a while and someone’s getting restless. While both of these Honda and Chevy SUVs offer a suite of interior features, the 2022 Honda Pilot ultimately offers more convenience and comfort features already at its base trim, so you don’t need to upgrade and pay more to enjoy what is much needed driving 8 passengers around! 


From the standard leather seating in the base trim to keep everyone comfy and happy to the HondaLink® app where you can control and oversee information for your SUV, the Pilot features make it easy to navigate this important yet challenging task. See what else you can get standard on the base trim, the 2022 Honda Pilot EX-L, below:
