What’s New in the 2016 Honda Pilot and Chevy Traverse?
The 2016 Honda Pilot received a major facelift for this year’s lineup. It has swapped its iconic boxy body for a new and more modern look that’s reminiscent of the new Honda CR-V. This SUV also features a slew of brand new features, including entertainment and safety technologies.
The Chevy Traverse, on the other hand, only features minimal upgrades for 2016. Its design hasn’t changed, and the only things new about this SUV are a few standard technologies on every trim level and a new leather seating package available for higher trim models.
In the 2016 Honda Pilot, you’ll find a variety of technologies designed for your entertainment and convenience during your travels. Some of these are standard Bluetooth® connectivity and an 8-inch display audio touchscreen system. This works just like your smartphone as you swipe and pinch to access music, calling capabilities, and much more.
The Pilot also includes a rear entertainment system. This lets your back seat passengers play DVDs and Blu-ray® discs to keep them occupied during long road trips.
The Traverse also comes with an available infotainment system as well as a rear seat entertainment system for your passengers. Unfortunately, the system isn’t capable of playing high-definition Blu-ray® discs.
In terms of safety, both the Honda Pilot and the Chevy Traverse can keep you and your passengers protected. These SUVs are equipped with impressive driver assist technologies, including a Blind Spot Information System and a Lane Keeping Assist System.
The 2016 Pilot also includes Honda Sensing™ which provides access to a Collision Mitigation Braking System™, Adaptive Cruise Control, and a Road Departure Mitigation System.
You’ll find an impressive powertrain that features a V6 engine that produces about 280 horsepower and an overall fuel-efficient performance in the Pilot and the Traverse. On top of that, these SUVs offer an available all-wheel drive system for enhanced performance capabilities.
Those driving in this year’s Honda Pilot will also have access to the available Intelligent Traction Management System. With this, torque distribution is improved to ensure stability and control in low-traction situations, such as driving on slippery, sandy, or muddy roads.
While the all-wheel drive system in the Chevy Traverse is impressive, this SUV doesn’t offer an additional performance system designed to handle adverse road conditions.
