2022 Honda CR-V vs 2022 Honda Pilot

Serving Brighton, MI

Several impressive SUVs are available in Honda’s current lineup, including the 2022 CR-V and the 2022 Pilot. The CR-V sits below the Pilot in the lineup, and both of these options are exceptionally well-equipped from bumper to bumper. However, with exciting differences between them, a detailed look at the options with help from our team at Serra Honda Brighton is in order.


The engine offered for the 2022 Honda CR-V is a 190-horsepower, turbo four-cylinder engine. It is combined with a continuously variable transmission. Most of the trim levels are outfitted with front-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is standard in the top-of-the-line Touring trim level. The Honda Pilot, on the other hand, receives 280 horsepower from its 3.5-liter V6 engine. This is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. While most of the Pilot’s trims have front-wheel drive with optional all-wheel drive, the Elite and Black Edition trim levels make all-wheel drive a standard feature.


The 2022 CR-V is a two-row model that is visibly smaller than the three-row Pilot. The CR-V has contemporary styling with a chrome-accented, hexagonal grille and a metal-lined fascia below the grille. The grille angles upward to connect with the LED headlights. The CR-V has a short nose with rigorous definition through the hood. The sides are smooth with accentuation over the fenders and definition through the lower door panels. The 2022 Honda Pilot also has a short nose, and its tapered hood has a mild, linear definition. The nose holds a black, trapezoid-like grille with a black bumper. The headlights are topped with a hook-like LED accent ribbon. You will find two linear elements that stream horizontally from fender to fender through the sides.


The most substantial interior differences between the CR-V and the Pilot are related to the Pilot’s third row. The Pilot is available with captain’s chairs in the second row, a tri-zone climate management system, sunshades for the second row, one-touch sliding seats in the second row, and split-folding seats in the third row. These models are offered with an auto-dimming rear mirror, Honda Sensing® technologies, a power liftgate, heated mirrors, a sunroof, keyless entry, leather material, smart device integration, satellite radio, USB ports, and other gear.
