Stick with us today as we compare the 2023 Nissan Pathfinder vs Honda Pilot to help find the perfect fit for you—and stop by Wesley Chapel Nissan near Tampa, FL, to test drive the 2023 Pathfinder firsthand to feel what exhilaration is all about.
Power in Fluid Motion: Pick Your Motor
When you take command of the 2023 Pathfinder, you get your choice between two engines—with the base 3.5L V6 packing 284 horsepower and 259 lb-ft torque to assist you in getting up to highway speeds with ease or embarking on a legendary drive. Meanwhile, if you crave more power, you can also upgrade to the available 3.5L V6 with 295 horsepower and 270 lb-ft torque, helping you put all that power to use to tow up to 6,000 lbs, perfect for teardrop trailers, some campers, and most types of boats and jet skis to prepare for a legendary day in the sun. If you’re in the mood to adventure beyond the paved roads, opt for the available Intelligent 4x4 system, which is geared to help you dominate low-traction surfaces, including mud, sand, or even snow when you venture out of state—select the terrain you’re facing with a dial to help tailor your suspension and power to the path at hand.
By comparison, the 2023 Honda Pilot also provides epic exhilaration with a base V6 loaded with 285 horsepower and 262 lb-ft torque—nearly identical to the Nissan model. Plus, with off-roading tools like an available all-wheel drive system and available drive modes, you’ll also take on a variety of terrains. However, there’s no available upgraded motor—meaning your towing capacity caps at 5,000 lbs, which can still pull a variety of watercraft and powersport vehicles—but the 2023 Pathfinder inches ahead for being able to pull a half ton more weight, allowing you to carry a wider variety of trailers and watercraft, giving the Nissan SUV a win for performance.
Family Fun for Three Rows: Get Comfortable Inside
Take a seat in the 2023 Nissan Pathfinder interior, and comfort comes naturally with tri-zone climate controls and available climate-controlled front seats to help you adapt to each season. For your seat upholstery, you get a choice between a standard and smooth cloth, a durable leather, hyper-luxurious and upscale semi-aniline leather appointments with quilted inserts, or Rock Creek® leatherette-appointed seats with Rock Creek badging if you want a sustainable option that’s able to keep up with your messy adventures.
For your entertainment, a NissanConnect® 8-inch touchscreen comes standard with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ connectivity for syncing to your compatible smartphone for quick access to your playlists and map apps to help you outsmart traffic while jamming out to your favorite tunes.
When you cruise with the Honda Pilot, three rows also come standard with tri-zone climate controls to bring comfort to the full family. Plus, you’ll also get a choice between a standard cloth, available leather-trimmed, or available leatherette. However, keep in mind the prestigious quilted inserts aren’t an option—and the leatherette design lacks the badging that delivers a refined touch, giving an edge to the 2023 Pathfinder for design. A 7-inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay also comes standard on the 2023 Pilot—but you’ll have one inch less space to tap, helping solidify a victory for the 2023 Nissan Pathfinder.
Extra Smarts for Extra Confidence: Meet the Driver Assists
Wherever your next destination lies, confidence protects you, as both SUVs pack standard driver assist systems like Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, and a RearView Monitor to help you see what’s behind when you need to exit a parking lot or squeeze into a tight space without straining your neck. However, the 2023 Pathfinder gains the advantage by adding Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert as standard systems, helping you dominate the highway as the feature warns you when a vehicle enters a hard-to-see area when you want to merge. Plus, the Nissan Pathfinder features an available Intelligent Blind Spot Intervention (not even available on the Pilot), which helps redirect you back to your lane when you don’t have enough time to react to the Blind Spot Warning.
