Honda Pilot Towing Features

The 2020 Honda Pilot comes equipped with a number of smart features that enhance its towing capabilities in and around Branford. These features include

  • Hill Start Assist: If you are driving up a hill or steep incline, Hill Start Assist will automatically apply the brakes as you move your foot from the brake pedal to the gas pedal to avoid rollback.
  • Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ AWD System: All-wheel drive not only boosts the Pilot SUV’s towing capacity, but it also provides the traction and control you want in wet, icy, or slippery road conditions in and around Middletown.
  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Guidelines: This advanced rearview camera system makes parallel parking or hitching a trailer easier and safer.

Honda Pilot Payload & Cargo Space

While the Honda Pilot towing capacity is impressive, this SUV offers additional capabilities that add utility, as well, whether you’re running errands in Westbrook or heading out on a road trip. The Pilot interior provides seating for seven to eight passengers and can be easily configured to optimize space for passengers or cargo. When the third-row seat is folded, you get up to 46.8 cubic feet of cargo space, and when folding down both the second and third rows, the maximum Pilot cargo capacity is 83.9 cubic feet. In addition, the Pilot payload capacity of 1,420 to 1,625 pounds allows you to haul everything you need on your next New Haven adventure.
