|Honda Model||Towing Capacity|
Towing capacity is how much weight your vehicle can haul. Many factors determine this, including vehicle horsepower, torque, suspension set up, and chassis configuration. Other key factors that affect the towing capacity include the rear axle ratio, curb weight, and transmission. All of these factors combine to create a towing capacity, which is where there is often a difference in the 2WD and 4WD versions of the same vehicle.
Typically, the more power a vehicle has, the more it can tow. Depending on the weight you plan to haul, let's take a look at three popular Honda SUVs and their towing capabilities so that you can find the best new SUV for your needs.
Starting with the popular Honda CR-V, drivers of this new mid-size sport SUV can enjoy the confidence of up to a 1,500-pound towing capacity. When you want a new SUV that gives you a turbocharged engine, 190-horsepower, the Honda Sensing® safety suite, and light towing, then the new CR-V should not be missed. Hook up a small trailer or load up the family's fleet of bicycles on a hitch-mounted bike rack and attack the weekend.
Next is the rugged mid-size Passport SUV, which gives you intelligent traction management, underfloor storage, and a 3.5-Liter V-6 engine capable of 280-horsepower. When you want to stay nimble in traffic but gain the ability to haul up to 5,000-pounds, then the new Honda Passport is the vehicle for you.
When you're looking for a mid-size family SUV with seating for eight, we have the new Honda Pilot. With a 5,000-pound towing capacity and a capable V-6 engine, the new Pilot gives you performance and luxury. In the higher trim models, we find leather-trimmed seats, a one-touch power moonroof, and a wireless phone charger for your compatible device.
