2022 Honda Pilot Towing Capacity by Drivetrain & Trim

How much can a Honda Pilot tow around Watford City? Now you know that the definitive answer to that question is up to 5,000 pounds. But that’s a bit misleading if you’re only looking at entry-level models, as gaining that ability requires upgrading from standard 2WD to AWD. For a comprehensive guide to the 2022 Honda Pilot towing capacity by trim level and drivetrain, see below:

  • 2022 Honda Pilot Sport Towing Capacity (2WD/4WD): 3,500 pounds/5,000 pounds
  • 2022 Honda Pilot EX-L Towing Capacity (2WD/4WD): 3,500 pounds/5,000 pounds
  • 2022 Honda Pilot Special Edition Towing Capacity (2WD/4WD): 3,500 pounds/5,000 pounds
  • 2022 Honda Pilot TrailSport Towing Capacity (2WD/4WD): Not Available/5,000 pounds
  • 2022 Honda Pilot Touring Towing Capacity (2WD/4WD): 3,500 pounds/5,000 pounds
  • 2022 Honda Pilot Elite Towing Capacity (2WD/4WD): Not Available/5,000 pounds
  • 2022 Honda Pilot Black Edition Towing Capacity (2WD/4WD): Not Available/5,000 pounds

The 2022 Honda Pilot Elite and Black Edition trim levels offer no 2WD option, thus, they automatically tow up to 5,000 pounds. That having been said, the max. Towing capacity is still available if you’re on more of a budget by simply adding on AWD as a standalone option for your Dickinson needs!
