Albany Drivers Find Variety in Honda’s All-Wheel Drive Vehicles

There’s a stereotype about all-wheel drive vehicles, that they are built for off-road use first and won’t serve you that well in day-to-day driving. We can’t speak for the competition, but here at Capital Region Honda Dealers, our four different all- and four-wheel drive models are built for the road first and then optimized for traction on slick terrain or if you’re heading off-road.

We can help you find the right one for you when you visit us, but here’s a quick preview of the five different options.

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline AWD knows how to tame both the urban landscape and the harsh weather that takes over New York, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts during our winter months. The intelligent AWD system adjusts to road conditions by distributing power to the wheels from a 280 hp, 262 lb.-ft. of torque, 3.5L V-6 engine, keeping grip at maximum levels. When called upon, that power is capable of towing up to 5,000 lbs.1

While powerful, the Ridgeline’s V-6 engine is also efficient – capable of 18 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.2 The independent suspension, found on all four corners, provides a more stable, comfortable ride. To keep your vehicle on a straight line, the Intelligent Traction Management System works together with the AWD to keep your Ridgeline controlled and balanced.

Functional cargo space is a specialty of the 2017 Ridgeline. In the floor, under the rear seat, is a sealed storage compartment that allows you to expand interior space. If you require even more room, the seats fold up to create a 50 cubic foot area of storage that is large enough to haul a bicycle. The box of the Ridgeline is outfitted with a weather-protected trunk beneath the truck bed which is easily accessible through the dual-action tailgate that both folds down and swings open. The 2017 Honda Ridgeline AWD is comfortable and capable, no matter what the road throws your way.

The HR-V is a brand new addition to the Honda lineup, and like Honda’s other popular crossover utility vehicles, the 2016 Honda HR-V AWD is available in all of the same trim levels as the front-wheel drive model. Under the hood of each HR-V is a 141-hp 1.8L four-cylinder engine with 127 lb-ft of torque, and HR-V AWD models feature Honda’s unique Real Time All-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Control.

Unlike some competing all-wheel drive systems, the HR-V AWD kicks in automatically when it detects a loss of traction on the front wheels; to help give your crossover a better grip on the road, some of the engine’s 127 lb-ft of torque is sent to the rear wheels until you’re back on solid ground. It’s tough to beat the peace of mind that comes with knowing your crossover is able to quickly respond to uneven terrain, snow, ice, and slick pavement.

If you are looking for a family vehicle around Albany that has a remarkable fuel economy and the confidence that only all-wheel drive can deliver, the 2016 Honda HR-V AWD is for you.

The 2016 Honda CR-V AWD: Compact and Practical

The crossover is often the go-to family vehicle for Albany drivers, and that’s why we’re glad that the 2016 Honda CR-V can be had with all-wheel drive on all five trims. In addition to the 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque offered up by the 2.4L four-cylinder engine, you can have the confidence that your crossover can overcome rough terrain with ease.

The Honda AWD system offers reduced vibration and noise as well as a remarkable fuel efficiency, because it only kicks in when the CR-V knows all-wheel drive is needed! It can automatically send power to the rear wheels electronically, which makes it one of the most responsive all-wheel drive systems yet simultaneously requiring low maintenance. And if you need to haul more than the cargo hold of the CR-V allows, the CR-V can tow up to 1,500 pounds when you need it.3

The 2016 Honda Pilot AWD: A Family-Friendly SUV

It’s tough to narrow down everything we love about the 2016 Honda Pilot AWD, but one  of the biggest perks is that you can have all-wheel drive on each of Honda’s five Pilot trim levels: LX, EX, EX-L, Touring, and Elite. With the Pilot, you can have the full-size SUV you need with any of the latest comfort and tech features and Honda’s dependable all-wheel drive.

The automatically engaging variable torque management system that makes Honda’s all-wheel drive so remarkable wouldn’t be much without the 3.5L V6 engine under the hood with its 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. And if you need to put it to work, the 2016 Pilot AWD is capable of towing as much as 5,000 pounds.4

Unlike many SUVs, the Pilot AWD can have its system engaged manually if you’ve started in muddy or rocky territory, you can lock the rear differential at speeds of up to 18 mph. When you’re behind the wheel of the 2016 Honda Pilot AWD, there won’t be much that stands in your way.

There aren’t many vehicles like the Crosstour on the road, walking the line between mid-size sedan and crossover. It’s expanded since its original debut as a special take on the Accord, and now it’s even better. If you want a versatile family vehicle with the peace of mind offered by all-wheel drive, the 2015 Crosstour 4WD is the way to go.

Found on the 2015 Crosstour EX-L V6 4WD, this model’s added traction engages automatically whenever the vehicle detects that you’re on uneven or slippery ground. Its hydraulically actuated design makes it one of the most practical family vehicles on the road. As if that’s not enough, the 2015 Crosstour 4WD sports Honda’s V6 engine capable of 278 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque, with the ability to tow as much as 1,500 pounds in a pinch!5
