2020 Honda Pilot

The Honda Pilot is known for having a smooth ride and spacious interior. However, it also boasts a high towing capacity for work or weekend excursions around the Atlantic City or Egg Harbor areas. As a result, this SUV may be what you need for your lifestyle.

To help with that decision, the team at Boardwalk Honda created this thorough breakdown of the 2020 Honda Pilot towing capacity. Read through the information below, then contact us to see this automobile in person.

Honda Pilot Towing & Performance Specs

The 2020 Honda Pilot towing capacity is up to 3,500 pounds in front-wheel drive models, and up to 5,000 pounds in all-wheel drive models when properly equipped–so if you’re looking for a vehicle to hitch a couple ATVs or a small trailer to, the Pilot can handle it with ease.

This solid towing capability is directly tied to the vehicle’s 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 with front-wheel drive and is available with an Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ system—the latter giving you optimum control on any road surface.

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, figures that apply to all trim levels.*

Honda Pilot Cargo & Seating

Not only can the 2020 Pilot offer superior towing numbers, it also has plenty of cargo room 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 second- and third-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

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 for passengers in that row.

Other available features include:

  • 10-way power adjustment driver's seat with lumbar support
