Tri-State drivers can drive with complete confidence in any weather in the 2017 Honda CR-V, 2018 Honda HR-V, 2017 Honda Pilot, or 2018 Honda Ridgeline with all-wheel drive. All-wheel drive systems offer greater handling and improved traction during hazardous weather conditions, like storms and blizzards. No matter the forecast, this truck and SUV lineup packs a punch with the help of Honda’s powerful engines and versatile features.
Come rain, ice or snow, weather doesn’t discourage the 2018 Honda Ridgeline AWD from hitting the road. The all-wheel drive works in conjunction with Honda’s Intelligent Traction Management System, distributing power to each wheel individually (as needed) to retain maximum grip of the road. Independent suspension can be found on all four corners of the Ridgeline, rather than a solid axle in the rear, as is the case with other pickup trucks. In turn, the tires will have solid contact with the road in any weather condition, creating a smooth and stable ride.
Just as Tri-State Honda Dealers span the distance across three states, some drivers also find themselves frequently covering a lot of territory in their vehicle. The drivers that find themselves quickly adding up the miles will appreciate the fuel efficiency of the 2018 Honda Ridgeline. With an impressive, EPA-estimated rating of 18 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway,1 you won’t be making frequent fuel stops. Power isn’t sacrificed in the name of fuel economy, as the Ridgeline’s 3.5L V-6 engine produces a healthy 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque, capable of towing up to 5,000 pounds.2
The 2018 Ridgeline excels when it comes to transporting cargo. If you need to keep your possessions out of the elements, there is a weather-protected storage area underneath the rear seats, as well as a lockable, In-Bed Trunk located within the actual floor of the truck bed. The rear seats also fold up, when not in use, allowing for an additional 50 cubic feet of cargo area. Accessing the In-Bed Trunk is made easy thanks to the Ridgeline’s dual-action tailgate that swings open to allow for closer interaction, but it also folds down to accommodate longer pieces of cargo.
The newly redesigned 2017 Honda CR-V looks sleek and sophisticated on the outside, but this compact crossover can stand up to rough terrain like a champion. The CR-V is powered by a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine that generates 184 hp with 180 lb-ft of torque for a spirited ride on or off the road.
Available on every trim level, Honda’s intuitive all-wheel drive system senses when the CR-V requires additional traction and automatically sends power to the rear wheels. This creates a more elegant driving experience with less noise and lower maintenance, while offering top-notch responsiveness.
Despite its smaller size, this crossover can tow up to 1,500 pounds of equipment with ease.3
Eastern Kentucky, Southern Ohio, and West Virginia drivers in the market for a new crossover but looking for something a bit smaller than the CR-V, we have a solution for you, and it’s the 2018 Honda HR-V AWD. Like its front-wheel drive version, the HR-V AWD is available in three distinct trim levels, and each model has a 1.8L four-cylinder engine under the hood.
When Honda’s Real Time All-Wheel Drive system detects a loss of traction on the front wheels, it sends some of the engine’s 141 hp and 127 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels via a continuously variable transmission (CVT) to help get a better grip on the pavement. This state-of-the-art CVT helps ensure your HR-V AWD will be both capable and fuel efficient, always having the ideal gear ratio for a given situation.
Let us show you that you can have a compact crossover with all-wheel drive without having to compromise on features, fuel economy, or passenger space—visit a Tri-State Honda Dealers location to test drive the 2018 Honda HR-V.
The 2017 Honda Pilot blends family-friendly features and bold looks with a rugged powertrain. Add all-wheel drive to any of the five trim levels to boost handling in any weather condition.
The Pilot’s Variable Torque Management System automatically activates when the vehicle encounters a lower-traction environment, like an ice patch or s slick road. The driver can also flip to manual mode for extra control in an emergency scenario to lock the rear differential up to speeds of 18 mph.
All-wheel drive beautifully complements the athletic 3.5L V6 engine, generating 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. Not only can the Pilot drive comfortably in any weather conditions, but this SUV can tow up to 5,000 pounds.4
