Explore a thorough breakdown of the 2018 Honda Pilot towing capacity, and learn where to go for a test drive, or for answers to any questions you might have.
Honda Pilot Towing & Performance Specs
The 2018 Honda Pilot towing capacity is 3,500 pounds in front-wheel drive models, and up to 5,000 pounds in all-wheel drive models, when properly equipped. This solid towing capability is directly tied to its overall capable performance. It comes with a 3.5L V6 engine that delivers 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. Plus, the vehicle offers a smooth and comfortable ride, and feels composed around turns.
It comes standard in front-wheel drive, and is available with an Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ system. The vehicle is pretty fuel-efficient, too. When the front-wheel drive model is equipped with the V6 engine and a 9-speed automatic transmission, it can achieve an EPA-estimated 20 city/27 highway MPG.*
Honda Pilot Cargo & Seating
Not only can the 2018 Pilot offer superior towing numbers, it also has plenty of cargo space inside the vehicle. In fact, when the second and third rows are folded down, you have up to 109 cubic feet of cargo space to work with. Plus, with the 60/40 Split 2nd- and 3rd-Row Seats, you can divide your hauling requirements however you like, while still leaving room for some backseat passengers.
Speaking of passengers, the Pilot offers lots of space for them, too, as shown in the following interior dimensions:
- First-row headroom/legroom: 40.1 inches/40.9 inches
- Second-row headroom/legroom: 40.2 inches/38.4 inches
- Third-row headroom/legroom: 38.9 inches/31.9 inches
- Passenger volume: 152.9 cubic feet
This SUV can seat seven or eight, depending on the trim level you choose. It comes standard with a second-row bench seat, which allows seating for eight. Upgrade to a higher trim level, and you get second-row captain's chairs. This reduces the seating to seven, but offers more space between passengers in that row.
Honda Pilot Interior Features
The Pilot has tons of interior technology, comfort and driver aid features to help make your drives more enjoyable. It comes standard with cloth seats, and has available leather and perforated leather seating. Other features include:
- 10-way power adjustment driver's seat with lumbar support
- Available heated/ventilated front seats
- Heated second-row captain's chairs
Furthermore, the Pilot offers tri-zone automatic climate control. This system lets the driver, front-seat, and backseat passengers adjust to their preferred temperature settings. This way, everyone has the exact comfort levels they desire.
