2019 Honda CR-V Towing Capacity

Honda CRV

The 2019 Honda CR-V has a towing capacity of 1,500 pounds when properly equipped. This is important for anyone in the Gulfport, Long Beach, and Biloxi areas to know, especially those who want to tow a jet ski to the gulf or take a pop-up tent camping.

To learn more about the CR-V towing capacity, check out this overview from the team at Pat Peck Honda.

2019 Honda CR-V Powertrain and Towing Capacity

The capacity to tow comes from the powertrain under the hood of the 2019 Honda CR-V. You get to choose between two different engines based on your performance needs:

  • 2.4L I-4: 184 horsepower & 180 lb-ft of torque
  • 1.5L turbo I-4: 190 horsepower & 179 lb-ft of torque

Both engines have the same towing capacity, so the right engine for you depends on what you need in terms of acceleration, dynamics, and overall drivability.

A continuously variable transmission (CVT) rounds out the powertrain. A CVT can enhance your towing capabilities by optimizing your shift schedules. After all, this kind of transmission doesn’t have any set gears. Instead, it allows for nearly infinite shift points between the upper and lower limits.

You can also choose between front-wheel drive or traction-enhancing Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™.

Cargo Volume in the Honda CR-V

In addition to what you can haul behind you, the Honda CR-V lets you pack heavy when you head out on your next family vacation with plenty of cargo space available.

It seats a total of five passengers with a trunk volume of 39.2 cubic feet for all your gear and other luggage. If you need even more room, fold down the second row completely and you’ll have access to the full 75.8 cubic feet of cargo volume.

With a 60/40 split rear seatback, you can optimize your space between passengers and cargo as needed.

The CR-V also has an available Hands-free Access Power Tailgate that makes it convenient to load up the cargo space. For example, if you have your toddler in your arms after your weekly grocery shopping, you can open the hatch simply by waving your foot under the rear bumper.

CR-V Towing Technology

Honda CRV

If you’re going to be towing with your Honda CR-V, you’re going to want to have the right towing technology. This SUV gives you plenty to work with here.

For example, standard Vehicle Stability Assist helps you handle curves with ease as it uses strategic braking to keep all four wheels headed in the right direction as you come around a tight bend.

The standard Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with available dynamic gridlines can also help you align your hitch with your trailer. It does this by turning your 5-inch or 7-inch infotainment display screen into a live video feed of the area directly behind your CR-V while in reverse. This gives you a clearer view of what’s behind you and where you’re heading when backing up.

Another useful feature is the available Lane Departure Warning and Lane Keeping Assist System. If you start to veer off course while towing a heavy load, this feature will issue an alert and gently steer you back into your intended lane of travel.
