How Much Can a Honda Pilot Tow?

To answer the popular question of how much can a Honda Pilot tow, customers will be impressed to see that the base trim Honda Pilot LX has a towing capacity of 3,500 pounds when paired with 2WD. But that’s just the beginning! Drivers can also upgrade their model with the Intelligent Variable Torque Management AWD System to achieve an even greater towing capacity of 5,000 pounds. This incredible towing performance is due in large part to the Pilot LX’s standard 3.5L V6 engine and 6-speed automatic transmission that produces 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. You also won’t have to worry about wasting your gas, as the Pilot LX also comes with a large 19.5-gallon fuel tank capacity.

Honda Pilot Towing Features

To ensure that your Pilot is capable of handling any job thrown its way, the Pilot LX and subsequent trims come equipped with the towing features you need to ensure a seamless, stable, and secure performance every time. These are just some of the towing features you’ll have access to behind the wheel of the Pilot LX:

  • 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 Union can throw at you.
  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Guidelines: Use the handy rearview camera to snag the best parking spaces or hitch a trailer or camper.

Honda Pilot Payload & Cargo Space

A strong SUV doesn’t just start and end with an outstanding towing capacity. That’s why the Pilot LX also offers drivers a payload capacity of 1,420 to 1,625 pounds. In addition to this added performance, the interior of your Pilot can be customized to ensure you have everything you need along for the ride. Drivers can adjust or fold down the second-row seats for 46.8 cubic feet of cargo space, or even fold down all second and third-row seats for a maximum cargo space of up to 83.9 cubic feet.
