For drivers looking for a stylish and comfortable mid-size SUV that’s tough enough to handle a towing job, the 2018 Honda Pilot is the one to consider. It’s versatile enough to handle smaller tows or larger hauls. The towing capacity will vary depending on whether 2WD or AWD is right for you, with the AWD version better equipped to handle heavier loads.

  • 2WD – 3,000 lbs.

  • AWD – 5,000 lbs.

Towing Capacity: 2WD

As the standard, the 2018 Honda Pilot comes equipped with a 2WD configuration that can tow up to 3,500 lbs. That’s enough capacity to handle smaller or lightweight trailers, jet skis, dirt bikes, and even smaller boats. It’s unsafe to try to tow a load that exceeds your vehicle’s capacity, but 3,500 lbs. is more than enough for many drivers.

  • Small trailers

  • Jet skis

  • Small boats

  • And more

Towing Capacity: AWD

For drivers who need to tow more cargo or heavier items, the Pilot comes with available AWD that will increase its towing capacity from 3,500 lbs. to 5,000 lbs. If you need to tow large campers, an RV, a boat, or similar item, you’ll want to consider upgrading to an AWD configuration.

  • Larger trailers

  • Boats

  • RVs

  • Campers
