The 2020 Honda CR-V Towing Package
Most of our Minot customers know the Honda CR-V is one slick-looking, sporty crossover. But did you know this small SUV is capable of towing small loads? That’s especially true when you add the Honda CR-V towing package, which includes the reliable Honda CR-V tow hitch. But how much can a Honda CR-V tow, in the first place? What comes with the tow package? How can I equip my CR-V for towing? Let’s talk about that.

How Much Can a Honda CR-V Tow?

How much can a Honda CR-V Tow? It turns out the CR-V can tow more than you’d expect for a vehicle of this class and size. Its maximum towing capacity is 1,500 pounds. That’s not as much as a large pickup, but it’s enough for towing an ATV, jet ski, or even a small boat wherever you need to take them in the greater Bismarck area. Of course, your vehicle will need to be properly equipped in order to tow anything. So, let’s talk about essential parts of a Honda CR-V towing package.

What Comes in a Honda CR-V Towing Package?

While there is no actual “package” of towing accessories for the CR-V, per se, there are certain available accessories that you will need in order to start towing. They include the following

  • Honda CR-V Tow Hitch (commonly known as a “trailer hitch”), which includes:
    • Draw bar
    • Retaining pin
    • Clip
  • Trailer hitch ball (comes in the 2 inch size or 1 7/8 inch size)
  • Trailer hitch harness

Other Features That Will Help with Towing

There are a number of safety features in the CR-V that help out, not only with towing, but driving under just about any conditions. Here a few:

  • Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control: Helps to keep the vehicle on the road when wet.
  • Hill Start Assist: Keeps your car from rolling in reverse when you’re on a hill and you move the foot from the brake to the accelerator.
  • Brake Assist: Increases the brake pressure when the driver is braking in order to avoid an accident.
  • Real-Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™: Improves engine performance by distributing torque.
