The 2021 Honda Pilot has been an acclaimed family SUV since its debut in 2002. Over time, the model has evolved. In addition to being a spacious and safe choice around East Stroudsburg and Stroudsburg, the Pilot also provides ample capability. The Honda Pilot towing capacity for 2021 is a great example of how useful the SUV can be.

At Ray Price Honda, folks come from all over Jim Thorpe, Easton, and Bethlehem, PA, to test drive the Pilot. If you're thinking about doing the same but want to first learn about the Pilot's capability, this article is for you! 

Honda Pilot Maximum Towing Capacity

When you have the Honda Pilot properly equipped, the SUV will provide a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds. That impressive figure means you can easily bring along boats or trailers or other vehicles on a long weekend trip.

Traction is important when trying to tow. For the Pilot, a handy Intelligent Traction Management system is offered. With this intuitive technology in place, you can select between specific drive modes such as Snow, Mud, and Sand. These drive modes are on top of the already terrific Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ all-wheel drive system.

Honda Pilot Performance Features

A hearty V6 engine rests under the hood of every 2021 Honda Pilot. If towing is your priority, this means each trim has similar levels of capability.

The V6 boasts 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. The all-wheel drive system is available on every trim while the Intelligent Traction Management system is available on every trim but the standard LX.

A 9-speed automatic transmission is the sole gearbox. It's a shift-by-wire design that also features paddle shifters. The paddles give you the choice of moving through gears yourself, creating a more engaging on-road experience.

When driving the Pilot, the V6 is quiet and refined thanks largely to an Active Noise Cancellation™ system.

Finally, fuel economy is a strength. Across all Pilot trims with 2WD, it reaches an EPA-estimated 20 city/27 highway MPG.1

Honda Pilot In-Cabin Storage Space

Attaching a trailer to your Honda Pilot is just one of the ways you can bring along extra supplies for road trips. The trunk of the SUV, even if you have the 2nd- and 3rd-row seats in use, provides plenty of capacity as well.

Maximum storage measures 109 cubic feet if you fold the second and third rows flat. Storage space measures 55.9 cubic feet behind the second row and 18.5 cubic feet if you have both rows in use.
