Honda Pilot Towing Capacity
When you’re looking for a larger SUV, you’ll more than likely want one with a significant towing capacity. Luckily, the Honda Pilot has the capability to pull a few extra things around Wellington, Boynton Beach, Palm Beach, and Lake Worth, and our team at Braman Honda of Palm Beach is here to tell you all about it!
Honda Pilot Overview
First, let’s take a cruise around the Honda Pilot, itself. With its spacious third-row seating, along with impressive fuel economy ratings, the Pilot proves itself to be a reliable, ahead-of-its-time, family-friendly SUV.
Additionally, the 2019 Honda Pilot offers several standard assistance features that will offer you an all-around easier drive. Such features include Automatic High Beams, Forward Collision Warning, Collision Mitigation Braking, and more! These allow not just assisted driving, but can aide with easier towing, as well.
Honda Pilot Cargo Space
If you’re interested in the Pilot’s towing capacity, we’re betting you’ll have to throw some extra things in the back to get to your destination. The 2019 Honda Pilot offers a total of 83.9 ft3 with both seats folded, which is plenty of space for extra luggage, or maybe helping a friend with moving.
If you just need to make a quick trip to the grocery store, you’ll find plenty of room with 16.5 ft3 of space behind the third row. Fold down the third row and open up to 46.8 ft3 of cargo room.
Power & Performance of a Pilot
The Pilot’s strength comes from its powerful V6 engine. Although this is the only engine offered, it certainly holds its own. Producing 280 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, you’ll be cruising from Point A to Point B with an extra boost.
However, this doesn’t mean the Pilot lacks in fuel economy. With an EPA-estimated 19/27 MPG city/highway1, the Pilot excels in its class. With these outstanding ratings, you’ll save in both time and money at the pump.
Honda Pilot Towing Capacity
The towing capacity of the Honda Pilot depends on whether you choose a 2WD or all-wheel-drive model. All models come standard with 2WD, with the option of adding AWD – except for the Pilot Elite, in which AWD comes standard.
If the 2WD option is for you, you’ll be able to pull up to 3,500 pounds. That’s still enough strength to tow lightweight travel trailers, speedboats, jet skis, or maybe your ATVs for a camping trip.
If AWD is more your style, you’ll up the Pilot’s towing capacity to 5,000 pounds when properly equipped. This means you’ll be able to tow RVs, campers, and larger boats and trailers.
