You want your SUV to perform with might and control, and the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee does just that. Its 3.6L V6 engine churns out 293 hp via an eight-speed automatic transmission, while the 2017 Honda Pilot has a smaller 3.5L V6 that makes just 280 hp with a six-speed transmission to deliver the power. What’s more, should anything go wrong with your vehicle when you hit the road from Sudbury, you have greater roadside assistance coverage with the Grand Cherokee. It boasts 60 months or 100,000 miles of this program, whereas the Pilot offers roadside assistance for only 36 months.


There are certain interior elements and features that make the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee in the segment, especially when compared with the 2017 Honda Pilot. For example, you get SiriusXM radio from the start with the Jeep model, which you won’t on the Pilot. The Grand Cherokee’s cabin also proves quite versatile, with a front passenger seat that folds flat to the floor for additional storage. In the Honda Pilot, the front passenger seat must remain upright at all times. Other noteworthy features offered on the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee but not on the Honda Pilot include:

  • Four-way power-adjustable driver seat with lumbar support (only two-way on the Pilot)
  • Digital/analog display
  • Simulated wood door panel insert

There are also noteworthy safety features on the Jeep that aren’t on the introductory Honda, like rear parking sensors and a tracker system.
