Both three-row vehicles have 8.0-inch infotainment systems, but the 4Runner is available with more advanced features from the Toyota Connected Services.

Performance Features

Performance Features

Displacing 4.0 liters during combustion, the 2022 Toyota 4Runner’s V-6 engine block whips out 270 horsepower. Supplemented by the VVT-i functionality, the six-cylinder powerhouse pumps out 278 pound-feet of torque. Having a displacement of approximately 3.5 L, the 2022 Honda Pilot’s V-6 engine delivers 16 lb-ft of less torque. However, this i-VTEC engine with SOHC valves has a peak output of 280 hp. Both three-row SUVs are powerful enough to handle a trailer that’s packed with a maximum of 5,000 pounds in accordance with the SAE J2807 regulations. The standard hitch-receiver on the 4Runner includes four-pin and seven-pin connectors for the wiring harness.

Off-Road Features

Off-Road Handling

Mounted on the 2022 Toyota 4Runner’s overhead console in the front row, the signature Crawl Control dial optimizes off-road capabilities. Offering up to five unique modes, this patented technology regulates the throttle and braking system for climbing sloped terrains at a steady pace. Similarly, the Multi-Terrain Select maximizes traction on unpaved trails. With additional leverage from the Active Traction Control, all tires get a good grip on rough landscapes. This full-size Toyota SUV also offers a locking rear differential that creates uniform rotation in the rear wheels as necessary. A limited-slip center differential from Torsen is another class-leading hardware that’s optional on this legendary vehicle. A full-time 4WD system is highly recommended for tackling tough terrains in the USA. This driveline works smoothly with an electronically controlled automatic transmission system, which makes up to five gear speeds. The robust ECT-i system includes the Sequential Shift Mode that prevents sudden upshifts or downshifts. You won’t find such advanced functions on the 2022 Honda Pilot’s nine-speed automatic transmission. Similarly, this midsize Honda SUV doesn’t have as many off-road technologies as the Toyota model. Nevertheless, the optional Intelligent Variable Torque Management AWD gives the Pilot some good leverage for managing harsh weather and treacherous ground. This premium Honda model includes the Hill Start Assist, which is comparable to the 4Runner’s Hill Start Assist Control. Additionally, the Toyota model is available with the X-REAS Sport Enhancement, TRD FOX, and Kinetic Dynamic suspension systems.

Technology Features

Electronic Technology

The 2022 Toyota 4Runner’s multimedia center is available with the latest Connected Services. Some main highlights from this subscription-based suite include Wi-Fi Connect, Destination Assist, and Remote Connect. You won’t find as many connectivity features from the 2022 Pilot’s HondaLink suite. Both three-row SUVs come standard with an 8.0-inch color touch screen. Having a custom design from JBL, the Toyota’s most advanced sound system includes 15 total speakers. You’ll only get ten speakers from the Pilot’s most sophisticated audio system, including the Multi-Zone design.
