2014 Honda Pilot greater SUV value than Chevy Tahoe
Some would say comparing the Honda Pilot to Chevrolet’s Tahoe is much like comparing apples to oranges. I disagree. Both vehicles utilize a truck based platform, will seat 8 or more while rolling down the road in relative comfort. While it's true that the Tahoe is 11” longer than the Pilot, the interior space difference between the two is negligible. As demonstrated by headroom measurements, the behemoth Tahoe offers a mere additional inch over the cab height of the Pilot. And here lies one of the many short comings of the Chevrolet..
When one purchases a Tahoe, they're buying a downsized Suburban mounted on a ½ ton Chevy truck chassis. And, it rides like a Chevy truck. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve owned many G.M. products over the years and as trucks go they're reliable and infinitely rebuildable.
As to the Pilot, by Honda standards it's big. But when compared to the Tahoe comes in at 1,000 lbs lighter, a foot shorter in curb length and 6” shorter in height. The Pilot's ride is superior due to suspension characteristics shared with the Ridgeline.
