West Michigan Drivers Gear Up with All-Wheel Drive Honda Models
We know that some of our West Michigan drivers experience snow and ice for nearly half the year, and that’s not to mention the mud the follows it. When you want a vehicle that can get you through any kind of weather or terrain, you need one that is equipped with a state-of-the-art all-wheel drive system. We recommend an AWD Honda model like the Pilot, the CR-V, the Ridgeline, or the Crosstour. Each of these vehicles has all-wheel drive available, and you can find them for yourself at a West Michigan Honda Dealer near you. But what sets these four Honda models apart? We’re glad you asked.
The Compact 2015 CR-V AWD Crossover
Do you want something a bit larger than a sedan but a bit smaller than an SUV? Before the CR-V existed, you’d just have to compromise, but Honda changed that when they created one of the world’s first compact crossovers. And years later, the 2015 Honda CR-V is carrying on that legacy. And the best part? You can get it with all-wheel drive on any of its four trim levels!
Honda’s all-wheel drive system will kick in automatically on the CR-V, shifting some of the 2.4L four-cylinder’s 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels to help your crossover regain its traction and set you back on course. The CR-V reacts quickly, too, with its electronic torque transfer system, which has the added benefit of requiring some of the least maintenance of available all-wheel drive systems.
Need to haul extra cargo but have filled up all the seats and the cargo area? The CR-V can tow as much as 1,500 pounds, making it a welcome member of the family when you want to go camping or out on an adventure. Is it any surprise that the 2015 CR-V was named the 2015 Motor Trend Sport/Utility of the Year?
The Sporty and Efficient 2016 Honda HR-V AWD
When you live in West Michigan, you know that you need to prepare for the winter months in every aspect of your life, and that includes your car. But not everyone needs a crossover the size of a CR-V, and that’s why we’re happy to offer the 2016 Honda HR-V AWD at West Michigan Honda Dealers.
This brand new crossover splits the difference between a Fit and a CR-V and gives you the option of all-wheel drive on all three trim levels. Under the hood is a 1.8L four-cylinder engine with 141 hp and 127 lb-ft of torque, giving your fuel bills a break thanks to its continuously variable transmission (standard on each all-wheel drive model). Honda’s Real Time All-Wheel Drive is easy to use, too: just drive as you normally would.
The HR-V will engage its all-wheel drive when it detects a loss of traction and send some of that engine power to the rear wheels to help keep you on track. Let us show you that you can get a small crossover without having to compromise on style, capabilities, or fuel efficiency; test drive an HR-V at West Michigan Honda Dealers today.
The Family-Friendly 2015 Crosstour 4WD
While each of our four all-wheel drive Honda models serve as excellent family vehicle options, we’re particularly fond of the 2015 Crosstour EX-L V6 4WD. The Crosstour is a mix between a crossover and a sedan, giving you the spacious cargo area and practicality of the crossover utility vehicle with the convenient handling of a mid-size sedan. And when you need the confidence provided by all-wheel drive, it’s there for you.
The available Real Time 4WD system is set to engage whenever it detects any kind of slippage—ice, snow, mud, gravel, you name it—delivering power to the rear wheels until you’ve got a firm grip on the road again and can get back onto solid, stable ground.
You can only find the Crosstour’s 4WD system on the EX-L V6 model, but we think you’ll be glad to see the power available—278 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque—as it lets you tow up to 1,500 pounds when you need it.
The Family-Sized 2015 Pilot AWD SUV
We’re not going to lie; we love the 2015 Honda Pilot here at West Michigan Honda Dealers. It has room for the whole family with seating for up to eight, as much as 87 cubic feet of cargo storage space available, a suite of incredible standard features, and a total of five different trim levels to choose from. And like the CR-V, you can get all-wheel drive on the Pilot at any one of those five trims.
With all-wheel drive available on every Pilot model, we bet you’re wondering just how much power you’ll have access to on this impressive SUV, right? Well, the 3.5L V6 engine under the hood is rated at 250 hp and 247 lb-ft of torque, and if you’re driving the all-wheel drive model, you can tow as much as 4,500 pounds with all of that power.
And then there’s the beauty of Honda’s all-wheel drive system. Not only will this one lock into effect automatically like the CR-V and the Crosstour, but you can lock it manually as well. That’s right, if you start off on uneasy ground and want to have yourself covered, you can manually lock the rear differential of the Pilot at speeds of up to 18 mph. We’re finding it hard to think of any tough spots that the Pilot can’t get out of.
The last thing you want is to be stuck in a situation where you say to yourself “I wish I had all-wheel drive right now.” Visit a West Michigan Honda Dealer near you and let us show you around our many AWD Honda models and help you find the one that’s right for you.
