Smoother Ride

The 2018 Honda Pilot is as smooth a ride as they come. This is because the Pilot has in independent suspension system on both the front and rear axles. While the Durango has this feature, the Pilot also has standard front and rear stabilizing bars which helps keep the Pilot flat and controlled during cornering. The Durango does not offer a rear stabilizing bar. The Pilot (except LX model) offers an optional drift compensation steering that can compensate for adverse road conditions. This system would help the vehicle stay straight and not drift from side to side. Again, the Durango does not offer this feature.


More Room


Despite the Pilot being 6.7 inches shorter than the Durango, the Pilot actually has more passenger volume than the Durango. The Pilot not only seats 8 compared to the 7 on the Durango but also has 152.9 cubic feet of passenger volume compared to 133.9 cubic feet. For even more passenger comfort, both the second and third-row seats recline in the Pilot. Unfortunately, only the second-row seats recline in the Durango. As for cargo room, you’ll be glad 109 cubic feet of cargo room with the second seat folded compared to 84.5 cubic feet in the Durango.
