What is the Honda Pilot Towing Capacity?

Honda Pilot Towing Features

In addition to it’s towing capabilities, the latest iteration of the Pilot comes with intelligent safety features that help support you and your vehicle during your toughest jobs in Warwick. These are a few of the available safety features for the Honda Pilot:

  • Multi-angle rearview camera: When you’re struggling to see what’s behind your trailer, this rearview camera will display guidelines to help you navigate into the toughest parking spots and make turns like a pro.
  • Hill start-assist: This system helps prioritize engine power when you’re towing a load up or down a hill. While making your climb, additional power will be sent to help drive your Pilot up the hill. On your descent, the system will apply the breaks when you take your foot off the gas pedal for additional safety.
  • Intelligent Variable Torque Management AWD System: This intelligent technology helps boost towing performance while also sensing and adjusting to road conditions in Goshen to make your ride safer.

Honda Pilot Cargo Space

If 5,000 lbs of towing capacity isn’t enough, Middletown drivers will be happy to learn that the 2020 Honda Pilot has a payload capacity of up to 1,625 pounds with seating available for eight passengers. Additional cargo capacity of up to 109 cubic feet is also available with the third and second seating rows folded.
