2019 Honda Pilot

Consumer Guide Automotive Honda’s popular midsize crossover has long been a Consumer Guide Best Buy, and revisions to the freshened 2019 Pilot only serve to make it better.

As this is a “refresh” and not a redesign, the Pilot platform and appearance haven’t changed much. Oh, the grille is different – taking on what Honda deems as a “more rugged” demeanor to reflect Pilot’s admittedly good off-road prowess – but the vehicle still looks and drives like a Pilot … which is just fine.

2016 Honda Pilot Review

Honda’s Pilot midsize SUV is redesigned for 2016, with swoopier lines replacing the former boxy look. In the bargain, it received revised powertrains and numerous high-tech features. It is due to go on sale June 18 at a starting price of about $31,000.

Consumer GuideWhen it debuted for 2003, Honda’s Pilot made its mark as a car-based “unibody” midsize SUV in a segment dominated by heavier, clumsier truck-based entries. Since then the tide has turned, and the Pilot has found itself facing some stiff competition.

2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe

2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe

Consumer Guide Automotive

There’s no moss growing under the feet of Jeep engineers and product planners these days. About a year ago, the brand introduced its first plug-in-hybrid vehicle: the Wrangler 4xe. Approximately 30,000 units found buyers last year, which Jeep says makes the Wrangler 4xe (pronounced “four by e”) America’s best-selling plug-in hybrid. Last summer, the fifth generation of Jeep’s Grand Cherokee debuted with the all-new 2021 Grand Cherokee L—the first Grand Cherokee with three rows of seats. Late last year, a redesign of the traditional two-row, five-passenger Grand Cherokee was introduced on a shorter version of the L’s all-new unibody platform. That’s all history now—along with the equally new Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer full-size SUVs—and Jeep’s engineers are on to their next act: the 2022 Grand Cherokee 4xe. It’s an intriguing mix-and-match that combines the Wrangler 4xe’s powerful plug-in-hybrid powertrain with the redesigned Grand Cherokee.
