Honda Towing Capacity Guide

Honda Towing Capacity Guide

One of the primary benefits of owning a robust set of wheels is being able to haul all sorts of attachments to enhance family get-togethers, camping trips, and more. Since many of Honda’s SUVs, as well as its flagship pickup truck and minivan, are capable of towing, Fischer Honda is here to break it down and explain what each model can do. If you have any remaining questions, don’t hesitate to contact our helpful team!

Honda SUVs

To begin, let’s take a look at the three SUVs in Honda’s lineup that have the muscle to tow—the CR-V, Pilot, and Passport. On the lower end of the spectrum, we have the CR-V, which boasts a 1,500-lb. towing capacity1 across all trims for the 2019 iteration. This level of strength is ideal for people who just want to haul some additional cargo behind them. For improved brawn, opt for either the 2019 Pilot or Passport! Both models provide a standard 3,500-lb. towing capacity2 with 2WD and up 5,000 lb. of towing capacity2 when you opt for AWD in certain trims. This increase in vigor is thanks in part to the 3.5L V6 engine at the heart of these midsize SUVs.

Odyssey & Ridgeline

Though you might not necessarily think of minivans as particularly powerful vehicles, the 2019 Honda Odyssey puts this notion to rest. Due to the fact that this model is powered by the same 3.5L V6 engine as the Pilot and Passport, it’s also capable of hauling various loads. Whereas the LX, EX, and EX-L trims provide a 3,000-lb. towing capacity3, the Touring and Elite editions crank this up to 3,500 lb. of towing capacity3 for improved utility. Of course, if you plan on choosing the Honda Ridgeline as your next compact pickup truck, then towing power is a given. Similarly to the Passport and Pilot, the 2019 iteration of the Ridgeline delivers a 3,500-lb. towing capacity4 with 2WD and, when equipped with AWD, up to a 5,000-lb. towing capacity4.

Towing Safety

In order to enjoy your time on the road when towing, it’s crucial that you understand proper safety procedures. Since towing affects your vehicle’s turning, braking, and stability, it’s highly recommended for drivers new to towing to find a safe location to practice certain maneuvers, such as backing up to an attachment. When you’re at the dealership for a test drive, our staff can also give you a few pointers. Once you feel comfortable and know how to adjust your input, you’ll be ready to take your camper into the wild, your boat to Lake Michigan, and anything else you wish to accomplish.

We hope that this Honda towing capacity guide has shed some light on the specific capabilities of all Honda vehicles capable of towing. For more information and a demonstration, visit Fischer Honda today! You’ll find us waiting for you at 15 E Michigan Ave in Ypsilanti, MI.

No dealership is perfect. Especially when we're talking about service but my experience here was pretty good. I went there to get something fixed in the wheel well and the service parts they were easy to work with. The cashier was friendly and personable. After a bit of banter and delay, the cashier gave me a "good person discount" when I asked for a "poor person discount". It was like $6 but it was a kind and memorable thing.

First off shout out to Joshua Campbell (Idk if he works there anymore) who sold me that beautiful Scion back in 2017 when I was in need of a car. Also a huge shout out to Curtis who recently sold me my new car! Both times I came into Fischer Honda, I had a very smooth and stress free experience. I got in and got out within an hour or 2 (my fault if it lasted longer because I didn't have the necessary documents). Curtis was an awesome salesman who didn't talk no more than he needed too and we both had the same views of many situations so it made the process even more smooth and relaxing. When its time for another car, I WILL be going back to Fischer Honda!

My mother went to Fischer Honda today to get a new car. Her salesman was Aaron Smith and he did a fantastic job helping her select the right car for her, making her feel comfortable and helping her to understand all of the technology in the car. She is 72 years old and is intimidated by car dealerships and he put her at ease and she couldn't be happier with her experience! Thank you Aaron and Fischer Honda for excellent service!

Fischer Honda is a friendly, reputable full service dealer. They are honest, do fine work in the service department and are comfortable to deal with in sales. They are trustworthy. I purchased my last car from Kelly in 2006 and am working with her again now on a purchase. My car has been well maintained completely by Fischer. It's been driven a lot but is going to stay in the family as it had lots of life left.
