How Much Can a Honda Pilot Tow?

So, how much can a new Honda Pilot tow? When fully equipped, the Honda Pilot towing capacity reaches 5,000 pounds. This also depends on the trim level you select. Here are the options available:

  • The Pilot LX, EX, EX-L, Special Edition, and Touring trim levels feature a maximum towing capacity of 3,500 pounds with standard 2WD, and a maximum towing capacity to 5,000 pounds when you upgrade to the available Intelligent Variable Torque Management AWD System
  • The Pilot Black Edition only comes with AWD so you can make the most of the lineup’s stellar 5,000-pound towing capacity. 

Also, you can expect a payload capacity of 1,420 to 1,625 pounds for the support you need when bringing along heavier quantities of cargo.

2021 Honda Pilot Performance Specs

The Honda Pilot towing capacity wouldn’t be as stellar without the standard 280-hp, 3.5L V6 engine and 9-speed automatic transmission under the hood. This Honda Pilot lineup is also known for its efficiency thanks to its large 19.5-gallon fuel tank and added efficiency technologies.

2021 Honda Pilot Towing and Safety Features 

In order to give you a balanced performance, the Honda Pilot offers plenty of additional performance and safety features. Here are a few of the Honda Pilot towing features and safety innovations you won’t want to miss out on:

  • HondaLink: Stay connected to your Honda model’s fuel range, service schedule, and more from afar. 
  • Eco Assist System: This system will inform you of the status of your fuel usage to help you improve overall efficiency when braking or accelerating.
  • Hill Start Assist: Sensors detect when you’re on a hill, and notify the system to apply the brakes as you move your foot from the brake pedal to the gas pedal. 
  • Intelligent Variable Torque Management AWD System: Not only does this system boost the Pilot’s towing capacity, but it also helps it tackle nearly any kind of driving surface.
  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Guidelines: Use the handy rearview camera to snag the best parking spaces or hitch a trailer or camper.
