How Much Can You Haul With a Honda SUV?

Honda towing capacity

There are three Honda SUVs that are capable of towing:

  • CR-V
  • Passport
  • Pilot

No matter if you have a compact or midsize automobile, you can still bring along larger objects for work or play. Curious to know what items you could tow with these Honda SUVs? Keep reading!

Honda CR-V Towing Capacity

The  Honda CR-V has a maximum towing capacity of 1,500 pounds. This is in its standard form when equipped with a 190-horsepower 1.5L 4-cylinder engine and Continuously Variable Transmission.

The CR-V may be a compact SUV, but it can still tow a great deal. Heading to the mountains with a couple buddies? Hitch a small pop-up trailer to the back of the vehicle, and you’re ready to go.

Honda Passport Towing Capacity

With the Honda Passport being a midsize SUV, it can tow a bit more. How much depends on whether you opt for the front-wheel-drive (FWD) or all-wheel-drive (AWD) model.

If you go with FWD, you’ll have a maximum towing capacity of 3,500 pounds. Need that extra traction? Go with AWD and receive a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds.

Both versions of the Passport are powered by a 3.5L V6 engine. It churns out 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque, which helps give it that extra hauling capability.

Honda Pilot Towing Capacity

The 2021 Honda Pilot is a midsize SUV that has the same towing capacities as the Passport. So, if you get the standard FWD model, you’ll have a maximum towing capacity of 3,500 pounds; the available AWD bumps that up to 5,000 pounds.

This is when you have the 280-horsepower 3.5L V6 engine and 9-speed automatic transmission inside the automobile. So, what exactly can this SUV tow? This table lays it out for you:

Maximum Towing Capacity Examples of Objects to Haul
3,500 pounds Lightweight boat
