Whether driving through rain or shine, Michigan drivers will be thrilled by the 2017 Honda CR-V, 2018 Honda HR-V, 2018 Honda Ridgeline, and 2017 Honda Pilot with all-wheel drive. Honda’s all-wheel drive boosts traction and handling in bad weather conditions. These three SUVs have the athletic prowess to tackle off-road adventures and the refinement to cruise comfortably through the daily commute. From icy roads to rocky trails, Honda all-wheel drive vehicles can handle any environment or road condition with style.
The 2018 Honda Ridgeline AWD was engineered with the geography of Central Michigan in mind. From the urban landscapes to the forested hills, the Ridgeline is at home in both settings, and everywhere in between. All road conditions are tamed thanks to the AWD working in unison with Honda’s Intelligent Traction Management System. It maximizes grip by adjusting power to the wheels individually, as needed. The independent suspension, equipped on all four corners of the Ridgeline, creates a smoother ride and allows for improved traction.
Power comes in the form of a 3.5L V-6 engine which generates 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque, allowing for 5,000 pounds of towing capacity;1 however, the 2018 Ridgeline does not trade fuel economy for power. The Honda Ridgeline AWD get’s an impressive, EPA-estimated 18 mpg in the city and 25 mpg when you are road tripping on the highway.2
Outdoor recreation is made easy with ample cargo space throughout the 2018 Honda Ridgeline. Weather-protected compartments can be found within the truck bed courtesy of the lockable, In-Bed Trunk, as well as space underneath the rear seating. When not in use, the rear seats can fold up to create 50 cubic feet of extra cargo area–large enough to fit a bicycle. Accessing the cargo in the truck bed has never been easier thanks to the Ridgeline’s dual-action tailgate, which swings open and folds down in a traditional manner.
The newly reimagined 2017 Honda CR-V AWD may showcase effortless refinement on the outside, but under the hood, this compact crossover can deliver a rugged performance. All four trim levels offer all-wheel drive with a peppy 2.4L 4-cylinder engine with 184 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque.
The CR-V features a unique all-wheel drive system that only activates as needed. This leads to better fuel economy, powerful torque, and reduced noise while navigating tough terrain.
Not only does this crossover provide a controlled and comfortable ride, but the 2017 Honda CR-V can tow up to 1,500 pounds as well.3
If you haven’t heard of the 2018 Honda HR-V AWD before, then it’s time to take notice. We’re proud to have this third-generation compact crossover in stock now at your Mid-Michigan Honda Dealers, because it means we have another option to offer our drivers who want a crossover they can depend on all year.
Just like the two-wheel drive option, you can find the HR-V AWD model in three different trim levels, each with a 1.8L four-cylinder engine rated at 141 hp and 127 lb-ft of torque and sporting a continuously variable transmission (CVT). And thanks to Honda’s Real Time All-Wheel Drive, whenever the HR-V detects a loss in traction, it will send some of that torque to the rear wheels and get you a better grip on the road.
With room for up to five and a versatile and expandable cargo space, the 2018 Honda HR-V AWD makes for an excellent vehicle in the city or out in the country.
The Pilot features a Variable Torque Management System that automatically kicks into gear in lower traction conditions, which keeps each wheel under control. Flip the system into manual mode to lock the rear differential in emergency situations.
When all-wheel drive is paired with the 3.5L V6 engine, the 2017 Honda Pilot delivers 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. That’s plenty of power to take an adventure off-road or tow up to 5,000 pounds.4
