Will my 2019 2wd tow 5,000 lbs if I add the transmission cooler or would I have to have awd to be able to tow 5,000? I've seen some conflicting information. Thanks.

According to Honda, maximum towing capacity for AWD models is 5,000 lbs while maximum towing capacity for 2WD models is 3,500 lbs. Some owners tow more in disregard to the manufacturer's specifications. That flags safety concerns. In an event of an accident while towing more than what the manufacturer stipulates, the legal implications is something to worry about.

It WILL, but as above the question is SHOULD it tow that much. To have your warranty cover it and be legally covered in case of an accident, it should be AWD.

Either way add the ATF cooler if you'll be towing - cheap protection for your transmission!
