5-Speed Automatic Transmission
The 5-speed automatic transmission was built with heavy-duty truck use in mind. Clutches, shafts, gear ratios and bearings have all been upgraded for towing and hauling. Transmission shift points have been programmed to take full advantage of engine torque, and shift times are quicker for more positive shifts. A high-capacity automatic-transmission fluid cooler helps ensure greater durability when towing in warm weather conditions.
 Towing requires the addition of the Honda accessory towing kit, trailer harness and hitch ball. Trailer harness standard on RTS and RTL models. Premium unleaded fuel recommended when towing. Please see your Honda dealer for details.
