How Much Can a Honda Pilot Tow?

So, how much can a Honda Pilot tow? The Pilot towing capacity varies, depending on which trim level you select. 

  • 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. 

In addition, drivers can also count on a payload capacity of 1,420 to 1,625 pounds for even more support when handling heavy quantities. 

2021 Honda Pilot Performance Specs

Along with the stellar Honda Pilot towing capacity, you’ll have a standard 3.5L V6 engine and 9-speed automatic transmission under the hood that delivers 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. The Honda Pilot lineup is known for its efficiency on the road, thanks largely to its large 19.5-gallon fuel tank capacity.
