2019 Honda Civic Type R vs 2019 Honda Pilot vs 2019 Honda Ridgeline

In terms of power and performance features, what is the best model in the Honda catalog? We decided to pursue this question. So, with that in mind, we’ve chosen a few 2019 Honda models to compare. Those would be the 2019 Honda Civic Type R performance hatchback, the 2019 Honda Pilot full-size SUV, and the 2019 Honda Ridgeline pickup truck!

2019 Honda Civic Type R Engine Specs and Performance Features

The 2019 Honda Civic Type R comes with only 1 trim level and therefore only has 1 engine option. This performance hatchback from Honda comes with a 2L turbocharged inline 4 engine. This produces 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque.

This is, as we will see when comparing below, the largest amount of engine power produced in any vehicle within the Honda catalog. However, as a performance vehicle, the 2019 Honda Civic Type R has certain disadvantages, such as cabin and cargo space. However, if you’re looking purely for thrills then the 2019 Honda Civic Type R is an excellent choice!

2019 Honda Pilot Engine Specs and Performance Features

The 2019 Honda Pilot is equipped with a 3.5L V6 engine across every one of its trim levels. This engine produces up to 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. With a 6-speed automatic or a 9-speed shiftable automatic transmission, drivers also get the choice of front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive when selecting their preferred 2019 Honda Pilot layout.

The rest of the advantages of the 2019 Honda Pilot are expected yet notable, such as its 8-passenger seating and maximum cargo capacity of 83.8 ft3. These don’t relate to power and performance, but it speaks volumes that the 2019 Honda Pilot is able to offer these additional features while maintaining a high standard of power and performance.

2019 Honda Ridgeline Engine Specs and Performance Features

The 2019 Honda Ridgeline has the exact same engine as the 2019 Honda Pilot along with an identical power output in terms of horsepower and torque. However, its build as a pickup truck offers many distinct performance features when weighed against the 2019 Honda Pilot SUV. However, a test drive is the best way to gauge your enjoyment.

The 2019 Honda Ridgeline has a maximum payload of just over 1,500 lbs, a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 lbs, and available intelligent AWD. Additionally, the 2019 Honda Ridgeline has many truck bed features exclusive to its class.


2019 Honda Passport vs 2019 Honda Pilot


For additional performance features and needs, we’d also recommend giving a close look to the upcoming 2019 Honda Passport. It will have the same engine as the 2019 Honda Pilot, but with a more compact and adventurous build that comes with new and exclusive features.
