What is the Honda Pilot's Towing Capacity?

The Honda Pilot can tow either 3,500 pounds with front-wheel drive and 5,000 pounds with all-wheel drive. The Honda Pilot has much higher towing capabilities than the average mid-sized SUV of its class, thanks to its standard 280-horsepwoer SOHC i-VTEC® engine, which generates 262 pound-feet of engine torque and features direct fuel-injection and Variable Cylinder Management™ (VCM®). With capabilities such as these, there are a lot more options as to what you can bring with you on the drive to National City or El Cajon, such as U-Haul trailers, small storable campers, and even boat trailers, if they are lightweight enough. Be sure to ask about the towing capability when you check out our new inventory and come to test drive the all-new 2019 Honda Pilot right here at Penske Honda Chula Vista! We are located right here at 580 Auto Park Road in Chula Vista, CA.

A Dynamic All-Wheel Drive

Our inventory of new Honda Pilot models come standard with your choice of either front-wheel drive or the Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ (i-VTM4™) All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system, which comes standard on the Honda Pilot Elite trim level. While the FWD system provides a great deal of traction and capability, the i-VTM4™ AWD system doubles down on these qualities by providing a more intuitive traction control system to take on any adverse road conditions, including rain, snow, and gravel roads. This AWD system utilizes advanced hydraulics in the rear wheels, which can be altered to concentrate engine torque more responsively when increased traction is needed and increase the stability of the SUV as a whole. Aside from the increase in traction, the AWD system increases turning responsiveness and increases the amount that this mid-sized SUV can take, with the proper towing equipment.
