Plan on towing with your new SUV? Would you like a vehicle ready to go off-roading? Just looking for a comfortable and fun ride as you cruise around Edgewood, Bel Air, and Aberdeen, Maryland?

To help you figure out if the Grand Cherokee or Pilot is the right SUV, our Thompson Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram (CJDR) of Harford County team takes a closer look at the specs and feature of the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. Honda Pilot below.

2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs Honda Pilot: Performance 

With four engine options and other systems available, you can tune the Jeep Grand Cherokee to give you the exact type of performance you need. Need strong towing capabilities to pull along your trailer or boat? The vehicle can be configured to tow up to 7,200 pounds. At most, the Honda Pilot can tow 5,000 pounds, when properly equipped.

The 2020 Grand Cherokee also offers trim levels that add an unmatched level of excitement to your drive. The Trackhawk is powered by a Supercharged 6.2L V8 engine. This unleashes 707 horsepower and 645 lb-ft of torque, which takes the Grand Cherokee from 0 to 60 in just 3.5 seconds.

Across all trim levels, the 2020 Pilot only offers a 3.5L V6 engine, which produces 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque.

While the Pilot also has an all-wheel drive system to handle various weather conditions, the Jeep Grand Cherokee has multiple 4x4 systems for an incredible performance over slippery road conditions, as well as other terrain for true off-roading adventuring.

2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs Honda Pilot: Interior

Wherever you go, you'll have a comfortable ride in the 2020 Grand Cherokee. That's because the car comes with premium features that aren't standard in the Pilot.

For example, a dual-zone temperature control system will maintain your desired temperature for the duration of the ride, so you don't need to keep adjusting the air conditioning like you'd have to do in the Honda Pilot. It also lets your front passenger adjust their side as hot or cold as they would like it.

Also, only the Grand Cherokee comes standard with a power driver's seat. With its 8-way adjustment, you can move and angle your seat with the push of a button. It also comes with a 4-way power lumbar adjustment, which takes the fatigue out of longer commutes.

2020 Grand Cherokee vs 2020 Pilot: Technology

2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee


2020 Honda Pilot

7-inch touchscreen display


5-inch LCD screen


Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay®


Also standard in the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee is the Uconnect® 4 system. On its 7-inch touchscreen display, you can access various system settings, multimedia options, and various applications from your phone.

That is because the system comes with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay®. This allows you to have text messages read to you, make calls, listen to your saved music, and pull up directions using your maps application.

The 2020 Honda Pilot has a multimedia system that comes with just a 5-inch LCD screen and Bluetooth® technology. You will be able to stream your own music or make a hands-free phone call, but that is the limit of connectivity you will have to your device, since Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ aren't standard.
