2019 Honda Odyssey Towing Capacity

2019 Honda Odyssey

With seating for up to eight people and an available Rear Seat Entertainment System, the Honda Odyssey is great for both running errands and road trips. While it has lots of space inside, can it tow extra cargo for you too? The team at Honda of Bay County finds out for families in Panama City, Springfield, and Callaway with this look at the 2019 Honda Odyssey towing capacity.

The Honda Odyssey can tow up to 3,500 pounds of extra cargo. To bring your utility trailer, jet skis, or fishing boat along on your next vacation, it runs on a 3.5L V6 engine with Intelligent Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (i-VTEC®).

This design allows it to run smoothly while also producing up to 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. To manage this power, you’ll have a choice between either a 9- or 10-speed automatic transmission with shift-by-wire and paddle shifters.

Together, these can help the Honda Odyssey both tow your gear and get up to an EPA-estimated 19 MPG city and 28 MPG highway across all its trim levels.1

Safe & Convenient Towing Features

Once you’ve got the trailer hitch ready, the 2019 Honda Odyssey offers several ways to make hauling your cargo easier and safer. It starts with lining up with your trailer. Whenever you put your van in reverse, the infotainment system’s screen will show you both what’s behind you and what path you’re on thanks to the Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Guidelines.

Once you’re connected to your cargo, you can hit the road with some safety features. The Intelligent Traction Management system comes standard, so you can get your cargo through tough weather. There’s also Hill Start Assist to help you get your gear up and over any steep inclines.

There are also driver-assistance features that can give you just as much awareness as your rearview camera. An available Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Monitor can help you tell when it’s safe to change lanes, while Adaptive Cruise Control can adjust your speed with the flow of traffic.

Interior Cargo Room

For maximum cargo room as well as quickly and conveniently getting in and out, the Magic Slide 2nd-row seats® are available for the middle of your van. These can help you carry big boxes with up to 144.9 cubic feet of cargo room.
