Traverse vs Pilot

Getting close to purchasing a 2020 SUV and I'm stuck between the Traverse and Pilot. Any thoughts? Anyone have any issues with newer a model Traverse? I like the way the Traverse looks on the outside, but I give a slight edge to the Pilot interior. Both ride nice, but the Pilot is a bit quieter. The Traverse has a bit more power. I appreciate any differentiating factors you guys could provide.

(Per-purchase important to me) I found the Traverse to be the only one in it's class that could fit 4 foot wide sheet goods. Takes minutes to convert from 7-person vehicle to 2-person vehicle with HUGE storage capabilities.

(Since I've owned my 2019 for about 1+ years) Love the power, fuel economy, and huge interior storage capabilities.

I don’t know about the Honda Pilot. But, I think my 2019 has too much road noise for the price point. 2019 LT2 45k dollars. Aside from that, I like it. It’s my third Traverse and I drive about 17k per yr in a metro area.

I tested several competitors and obviously I chose the Traverse. IMO, based on these...
- More Power
- More standard features/Premier
- More room/I'm 200 lbs + seats are just wider.
- 20" wheels

I drove to Denver, Colorado Springs, Royal Gorge, Vail, Pikes Peak, through the mountains from St. Louis. Very smooth and nice ride. 300+ hp had no issues in the mountains.

Good luck on your decision.

For me, I needed the roomiest third row seating and cargo space (with third row up) and the 2019 Traverse was best in class.
