The Toyota 4Runner is a well-established mid-sized SUV and has been going strong in the American automotive market for almost four decades now. Thanks to its durable and practical build, the 4Runner offers enough flexibility for both on-road and off-road usage. That said, competition is stiff with a big list of mid-sized SUVs competing for the top spot, the Honda Pilot being one of the significant ones on the list. Let’s see what qualities help the 2022 Toyota 4Runner stand apart from the 2022 Honda Pilot.
The 2022 Toyota 4Runner is available in eight trims - SR5, TRD Sport, Trail Special Edition, SR5 Premium, TRD Off-Road, TRD Off-Road Premium, Limited, and TRD Pro. The 2022 model year of the 4Runner receives an interesting list of updates - the addition of a new TRD Sport trim and up-gradation of all the 4Runner trims with LED high-beam headlights.

The Honda Pilot has a slight horsepower advantage over the 4Runner. That said, the 4Runner’s higher torque output over the Pilot helps in balancing out both the SUVs performance. Both the SUVs offer a comfortable driving experience. But it is the user-friendly nature of the 4Runner that gives it an edge over the Pilot. And not to forget the nine-inch ground clearance that gives it a slight off-road advantage over the 2022 Pilot.
The 4Runner offers an impressive list of technological features such as Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth connectivity, eight-speaker sound system, Wi-Fi connect, Amazon Alexa compatibility, and SiriusXM subscription as standard on all the variants. Upgrading to the higher-trims updates the infotainment system with features like JBL premium audio system with 15 speakers, Service Connect, Remote Connect, and Destination Assist, to name some of them. The Honda Pilot offers a similar list of features and goes head-to-head with the 4Runner. But if there is one thing that 4Runner can be accredited for, it is the wide list of features offered as standard on all the trims while the Pilot limits its offering based on the trim. The 4Runner and the Pilot come hand-in-glove when looking at the cabin's comfort and space. But again, with more trims/configurations, the 4Runner gives customers the flexibility to choose based on their requirements.
Safety features offered in the 4Runner is lengthy, with features like Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P), Star Safety System™, Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS), Rear Occupancy Alert, and Side-impact door beams, to name some of them. This is what makes the 2022 Toyota 4Runner stand apart from the Honda Pilot thanks to the flexibility and practicality it offers.
