No.

I drove a company 2014 Ford Escape SUV, it already had rust in the interior of the engine bay and had rust on the upper wheel well. My Honda Pilot 2007 doesn't have any visible rust.

Unless there is a line item that states a coating was added, I'd assume no different. Usually extra protection is something a dealer would love to advertise (and charge for).

Skid plates on SUVs and trucks may block the amount of road salt that makes it way up into specific areas, but that also blocks the water at car washes from spraying those same parts clean. Double-edged sword.

Very cool. I lived right by the State Fairgrounds at 8 Mile and Woodward. Had a house in the same neighborhood as Roger Smith, John Salley, and the Arch Bishop of Detroit. I bought what was basically a 1920's mansion, extremely high quality with everything custom, with a manicured yard, a conservatory, etc. NO ONE wanted to live there without armed guards so I got the house cheap. I'm sure it is a great neighborhood now and the house worth a ton.

You bet they are. Just look at all the old International Scouts and Toyota Land Cruisers still on the road.

Seriously, those are two of the worst ever vehicles for rusting to hell in a hurry, both generally considered SUVs though their owners loathe to consider them so as it's too wimpy a term for their tastes.
