Honda Pilot Towing and Engine Specs
Whether you’re hauling a boat to Gulfport Marina or towing a trailer across the Magnolia State, the strength of the Honda Pilot allows it to accomplish these tasks with ease.
The maximum towing capacity of the Pilot will depend on the trim level you choose and towing package that comes with it. The major difference is between the way the Pilot drives. With all-wheel drive technology, you’ll be able to haul up to 5,000 pounds. If you instead choose front-wheel drive, towing capacity maxes out at 3,500 pounds. You’ll maximize Pilot towing capacity with the Honda accessory towing kit, trailer harness, and hitch ball.
Where does this power come from, you might ask? Well, it’s due in large part to the 3.5L V6 engine, which is able to deliver 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque.
Notable Performance Features
There’s a lot more that goes into the Honda Pilot than just the powerful engine and the impressive towing capacity. Most other mechanical features are meant to help with a heavy-duty towing job.
For instance, with Hill Start Assist, the 2019 Pilot will remain steady on uneven ground until you step on the gas and start moving. If there are any bumps along the way, the MacPherson strut comes with a special shock absorber, smoothing out your ride and making sure the kids stay asleep when going over rocky roads.
When paired with all-season tires, the available 20-inch alloy wheels ensure you’re ready for any challenge the road throws at you.
Honda Pilot Handling and Off-Road Capability
Having the available Intelligent Variable Torque Management® AWD system provides better traction than the front-wheel drive version of the Pilot. When the roads get slick, this system responds and provides the traction you’re able to count on.
The optional Intelligent Traction Management system is able to help you tackle difficult conditions with its several modes, which include Normal, Snow, Mud, and Sand. Whether you’re heading to the beach and want more traction or are trying to power through a sticky situation, this system will be there for you.
On top of this system, the 9-speed automatic transmission pairs with the engine to provide a smooth and powerful drive.
