Tri-State drivers can drive with complete confidence in any weather in the Honda CR-V, Honda HR-V, Honda Pilot, or 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.
Looks can be deceiving and that is certainly the case with the 2018 Honda CR-V AWD. This sporty crossover looks stylish and refined, but underneath is a rugged SUV that can stand up to almost any weather scenario or road condition. Honda’s Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System makes this possible and is available on any of the four CR-V trim levels.
This progressive AWD system gives your CR-V better grip and handling to keep you confident in any weather condition. The system senses which rear wheel needs more traction and automatically sends more torque to that wheel, as necessary. Because it only works when needed, the CR-V’s Real Time AWD System increases fuel efficiency while also reducing road noise.
Choose the LX trim level and get a 2.4L in-line 4-cylinder with an output of 184 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque or upgrade to the EX, EX-L, or Touring model equipped with a 1.5L turbocharged engine capable of 190 hp and 179 lb-ft of torque. Either powertrain is paired with a 6-speed continuously variable transmission (CVT). Further proving its SUV credentials, the 2018 Honda CR-V AWD can tow up to 1,500 pounds when properly equipped.
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 2018 Honda Pilot can safely take you and the whole family anywhere you need to go with confidence. Thanks to Honda’s available Intelligent Variable Torque Management (i-VTM4) AWD System, slippery road conditions and loose terrain are no longer a concern.
Traction, handling, and responsiveness are taken care of by the Pilot’s i-VTM4 AWD System, which automatically activates when the rear wheels need traction. The system intuitively sends more torque to the rear wheel (or wheels) as needed, with no input from the driver. If you need more control in deeper snow or mud, switch over to the manual mode and lock the rear differential for all-wheel drive at speeds up to 18 MPH.
The 2018 Honda Pilot AWD is outfitted with a muscular 3.5L V-6 engine mated to either a standard 6-speed automatic or an available 9-speed automatic transmission. This powertrain is capable of generating 280 hp, 262 lb-ft, and boasts a towing capacity of up to 5,000 pounds—eliminating any doubt whether or not the Pilot is a powerful performer.
