V6 Performance
Pilots earn 280 horsepower and 262 lb.-ft. of torque. The Highlander offers a money-saving turbo, a 306-horsepower hybrid and a smart V6. It is rated at 295 horsepower and 263 lb.-ft. of torque. Clearly the Highlander has an edge when it comes to performance. Helping it along, the Highlander has a special eight-speed automatic transmission. Get financing.

Crash Avoidance
Only the Highlander comes equipped with the crash avoidance systems required by the NHTSA for 2022. Ahead of its time, the Toyota has a forward collision warning to watch for slowing cars. A pedestrian watch keeps an eye out of people in your path. An autobrake tries to slow the vehicle if either alert is given. A lane watch trains its sensors on the lane lines. It may trigger a lane assist if its warnings go unheeded. You won’t find any of these systems on the Pilot unless you pay more for a package or a higher trim level.

Driver Aids
To help you in busy traffic, Toyota includes adaptive cruise control. You just get regular cruise control with the Pilot. You can step up to better if you are willing to pay more for the Honda. Likewise, only Toyota gives you automatic high beams on every Highlander.
