The 2018 Honda Pilot is a mid-size SUV that is versatile and comfortable and able to handle a tough towing job. Whether you need to tow smaller trailers or larger loads, the Pilot is a great SUV option that can handle it all. The towing capacity varies depending on whether the 2WD or AWD system is right for you, with the AWD configuration better equipped to handle more weight and larger loads.

  • 2WD – 3,500 lbs.
  • AWD – 5,000 lbs.

Towing Capacity: 2WD

As the standard, the Pilot comes with a 2WD configuration but it still is able to tow up to 3,500 lbs. That’s enough for a smaller or lightweight trailer, jet skis, dirt bikes, and more. It’s unsafe to try to tow a load that exceeds your vehicle’s capacity, but 3,500 lbs. is more than enough for most drivers.

  • Lightweight trailers
  • Jet ski
  • Smaller boats
  • And more

Towing Capacity: AWD

For drivers who need to tow larger loads, the Pilot comes with available AWD, which increases the towing capacity from 3,500 lbs. to 5,000 lbs. If you need to tow a large trailer, an RV, a large camper, or something similar, you’ll want to consider upgrading to AWD.

  • Larger trailers
  • Boats
  • RVs
  • Campers
