Comparing the 2018 Honda Pilot and the 2018 Dodge Journey

When it comes time to purchase a vehicle, drivers have many options to choose from. Chances are, you’ve tried to narrow down your search as much as possible. Alas, sometimes we still wind up with a few options that we just can’t seem to decide on. Don’t worry! At Bob Brady Honda, we’re here to help. We want our drivers to make the most well-informed decision possible. To do this, we’ve taken a look at two potential models you might be interested in: The 2018 Honda Pilot and the 2018 Dodge Journey.

The first step in choosing a vehicle is finding a few options you enjoy and then comparing them. Luckily, we’ve taken a closer look at the 2018 Pilot and the 2018 Journey below. Keep reading for more information!

The 2018 Honda Pilot

The 2018 Honda Pilot is offered in five separate trim levels. Spread across the trim levels are countless features that you and your passengers are certain to love. For instance, the Pilot provides several technology features such as HD radio, Bluetooth®*, voice recognition, a rear entertainment system, USB ports, a Blu-Ray player, a navigation system, and more. You also receive a variety of safety features such as lane departure warning, forward collision warning, automatic high beams, lane keeping assist, rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, blind-spot monitor, adaptive cruise control, and more. 

While you might pay a little bit more in price for the Honda Pilot, it’s well worth it due to the features you receive. Also, the fact that the Pilot comes with five unique trim levels shouldn’t be overlooked. This means you can decide which trim, features, and more is best for you. If you’re looking for a spacious SUV, the Pilot is a great choice!

The 2018 Dodge Journey

The 2018 Dodge Journey comes in four distinct trim levels. Highlights of some of the features include: a height-adjustable driver seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, keyless ignition and entry, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, leather upholstery, rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, satellite radio, and more. Unfortunately, many of the features listed are only available when equipped as packages. That’s not all bad though – this allows drivers to pick and choose which trims and packages they prefer. 

By selecting which features you want, you’re likely to pay a bit less than if you went with the Pilot. However, if you wish to have the most up-to-date features in your ride, you can expect the price to go up with the increase of packages and top-level trims. One important aspect of the Journey you might like to know: It does not offer an automatic engine start/stop system.

How Can You Choose?  

When weighing the pros and cons of your top two favorite vehicles, it might be hard to decide which one to choose. Now that you know a bit about both rides and all they have to offer, hopefully you’re one step closer to making a decision. If not, let’s look at our recommendation.

First of all, the Honda Pilot offers more trim levels than the Dodge Journey. This means that more features are spread across the trim levels. Although this does increase the price a bit, we’re willing to bet that you’d prefer to have the features you want easily, rather than having to worry about equipping packages to the Journey in order to get the features you want. 

The outcome? We suggest the 2018 Honda Pilot! We believe the Pilot wins out due to the fact that it offers a large selection of features and has plenty of space. Now, let’s learn about where you can find the 2018 Pilot!
