The towing capacity of a 2014 Honda CR-V is 1,500 pounds. This is for LX, EX and EX-L models. In order to pull this amount, engine or other drive train upgrades are sometimes needed.
A 2014 Honda CR-V has a four-cylinder motor, which makes it more fuel efficient than a six-cylinder motor. However, towing power is lower with the smaller engine.
Towing capacity is important information if a driver intends to pull a burden. Keeping within the manufacturer's recommendations ensures safety and prevents damage due to an overweight load. Safe towing also requires appropriate trailer lighting and dependable tires. In addition, if a towing trailer is used, its weight limit must be followed.
