Honda Pilot vs Ford Escape

The 2016 Honda Pilot and 2017 Ford Escape are high-performing, yet very different crossover SUVs. The Pilot is a midsize, 3-row option that is ranked No. 3 on our list of midsize SUVs, and was the winner of our 2016 Best 3-Row SUV for the Money and Best 3-Row SUV for Families awards. The compact, 2-row Escape holds the No. 2 spot on our list of compact SUVs. The Pilot is fully redesigned for 2016, and the 2017 Escape has been treated to a significant refresh (and was last fully updated in 2013).

Ford introduced the Escape in 2001 and Honda introduced the Pilot two years later. Both vehicles are in their third generations.

If you’re open to the idea of both compact and midsize SUVs, you might find yourself comparing these near-best-in-class options. Keep reading to find out more about their pros and cons.
