2021 Honda CR-V Touring Driving

How much can a Honda CR-V tow? You might think this compact SUV doesn’t have much towing power, but it actually sports an impressive 1,500 pounds of Honda CR-V towing and an 850-pound payload capacity to boot! To get towing on their SUV, Gainesville drivers don’t even need any special Honda CR-V towing package, as this vehicle comes standard with a Honda CR-V tow hitch. Learn more about Honda CR-V towing from Honda of the Avenues.

What Can a Honda CR-V Tow?

For many, the question isn’t really, “How much can a Honda CR-V tow?” but really “What can a Honda CR-V tow?”. This compact SUV, while very useful for city driving, can also adapt to your needs if you want to go camping outside Orange Park, or head out to the lake. Here’s a list of a few things that you can attach to the Honda CR-V tow hitch:

  • Small teardrop camper
  • ATV
  • jet ski
  • small fishing boat
  • And more!

Honda CR-V Tow Hitch 

On a lot of vehicles, you’ll see that there’s a special towing package. There’s actually no Honda CR-V tow package, just the Honda CR-V tow hitch and other equipment that comes with it, like: 

  • Drawbar
  • Retaining pin
  • Clip
  • Trailer hitch ball (comes in the 2-inch size or 1 ⅞-inch size)

If you’re having trouble using these features or think you’re missing some, our St. Augustine-area service and parts center can help.

Other Honda CR-V Towing Features

While there’s no Honda CR-V towing package, there are a number of performance features on the CR-V that’ll help a lot with towing. The CR-V has been designed for smooth, controlled driving experiences, which are especially important when you’re taking advantage of the Honda CR-V towing capacity. Here are some technologies that make the difference:

  • Real-Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™:This proprietary AWD system sets the CR-V apart, sending power to all the wheels with a system of advanced sensors. 
  • Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control: Traction is very important for towing, which is why the help this feature provides is invaluable. 
  • Brake Assist will sense when it needs to apply pressure, and Hill Start Assist prevents roll-back when you’re on a hill and switching pedals.
