How Much Can Your 2020 Honda Pilot Tow?

The ultimate towing capacity for your 2020 Pilot will depend on the trim level of your vehicle.

The LX, EX, EX-L and Touring models come with standard 2WD. That allows them to generate a towing capacity of 3,500 pounds.

Pilots with the optional Intelligent Variable Torque Management AWD System enjoy added towing capacity—to the tune of a 5,000-pound limit! Powered by Honda’s 3.5-liter, V6 engine, which puts out 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque, the 2020 Honda Pilot has all the power you’ll need.

Here are some of the impressive towing features that will help you get the job done:

  • Intelligent Variable Torque Management AWD System: Not only does this system boost your vehicle’s towing capacity, it also helps your Pilot easily conquer any kind of driving surface 2020 might throw at you.
  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Guidelines: The handy rearview camera can be a real lifesaver at the boat launch or when you’re hitching up the trailer (it’s also pretty handy if you need to slide into a tight parking spot).
  • Hill Start Assist: Sensors detect when you’re on a hill and notify your Pilot’s on-board computer to apply the brakes as you move your foot from the brake pedal to the gas pedal.
