2014 Chevy Traverse vs. 2014 Honda Pilot
Those in the Schaumburg area looking for a new crossover SUV are in luck. This segment has a wide variety of impressive models to choose from, highlighted by the 2014 Honda Pilot and the 2014 Chevy Traverse, which is currently available here at Biggers Chevy in Elgin. Both of these vehicles have plenty to offer when it comes to safety, performance, and capability, but the new Chevy Traverse clearly has a leg up on the new Honda Pilot. Here’s why:
- Innovative Safety Technology: The 2014 Chevy Traverse provides an optional collision warning system to alert drivers of an impending crash with front-mounted sensors, and an optional lane departure warning system uses audiovisual cues to notify temporarily inattentive drivers of lane drifting. The 2014 Honda Pilot does not offer any such system, optional or otherwise.
- More Standard Power: Under the hood of the 2014 Chevy Traverse is a 3.6L DOHC V6 engine that produces 281 hp and 266 lb-ft of peak torque. This added horsepower and torque allows for fast, responsive acceleration on-demand. The 2014 Honda Pilot’s standard powertrain is a 3.5L SOHC V6 that is capable of 250 hp and 253 lb-ft of torque, which is not nearly as much as the new Chevy Traverse’s engine puts out.
- Added Control to Drive Your Way: For total vehicle control, the 2014 Chevy Traverse has an available SelectShift feature. This delivers the same convenience as an automatic transmission with the ability to manipulate gears however you see fit, much like a manual transmission. SelectShift gets rid of unwanted shifts while maximizing engine braking by down shifting when cornering. The 2014 Honda Pilot does not have a transmission that allows for total gear control.
