2019 Honda Passport: Explore the Towing Capacity of this Rugged SUV

March 22nd, 2019 by

The 2019 Honda Passport is an all-new SUV that is rugged with off-road capabilities and available all-wheel drive. Edmunds.com says the Passport offers “a spacious interior with lots of passenger and cargo space” as well as “impressive off-road capabilities for a car-based crossover.” For drivers who need to tow trailers, campers, RVs, boats, and more, the Passport can be equipped to tow up to 3,500 lbs. with front-wheel drive or up to 5,000 lbs. with all-wheel drive.


The Honda Passport comes standard with front-wheel drive and can tow up to 3,500 lbs. Attempting to tow a load that exceeds your vehicle’s limits is extremely dangerous and can be detrimental to the mechanics of your vehicle, but for many drivers who need to tow lightweight moving trailers, teardrop campers, jet skis, and more, the Honda Passport 2WD models might be more than sufficient.


For drivers who need to tow larger and heavier loads, when equipped with all-wheel drive, the Passport can tow up to 5,000 lbs. Every trim level of the Honda Passport comes with available all-wheel drive, so even if you’re considering the entry-level model, you can still equip the Passport to tow heavy loads including speed boats, RVs, and other cargo within the 5,000 lbs. limit.


Powered by an athletic V6 engine, the Honda Passport earns up to 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. The Passport accelerates quickly, which makes trickier driving situations, such as merging or passing on the highway, much easier.
