Your Central Ohio Honda Dealers are ringing in the New Year with an exciting lineup of new 2017 Hondas. Two of the newest arrivals at our Honda new car dealerships near Columbus, OH are the completely redesigned and updated 2017 Honda CR-V crossover SUV and the all-new 2017 Honda Ridgeline pickup.

A New Turbo CR-V For 2017

The big news coming from the halls of Honda in 2017 is that they’re equipping the reimagined 2017 CR-V with a responsive and fuel-efficient turbocharged 1.5-liter, DOHC, direct-injected inline 4-cylinder engine that punches out 190 horsepower. It’s the first time we’ve seen Honda’s new turbocharged mill in a CR-V. Sweet.

Even if you choose to stick with the CR-V’s standard normally aspirated 2.4-liter, DOHC, direct-injected i-VTECO engine, you’ll still get 185 ponies and 181 lb.-ft. of torque to play with. Honda’s advanced continuously variable transmission (CVT) with exclusive G-shift Logic Control pairs beautifully with either engine, providing both seamless shifting and helping to improve the CR-V’s fuel economy. In fact, with an EPA-estimated* 26 mpg city/32 mpg highway, the CR-V will take your farther for less.

Fresh New Exterior

Honda also restyled the CR-V’s exterior, giving it a fresh update that features a rear end with new horizontal LED taillights, a longer wheelbase, brilliant new LED headlights, a more aggressive front end with a bolder lower fascia and front bumper, and sporty chrome-tipped dual exhausts. The overall look is more toned and athletic with muscular fenders, a shorter rear overhang, and roofline spoiler adding to the new CR-V’s sporty and fun-loving appeal.

Reimagined Interior

You’ll still find the CR-V’s versatile interior as accommodating as ever, only more so. Once again, Honda sets new benchmarks for quality and craftsmanship in the new CR-V, as evidenced by the abundant use of premium materials throughout.

One significant change is a cool new instrument cluster that features a digital speedometer, multi-information display, and unique horizontal tachometer. The new instrument array not only looks modern and forward-thinking, but it’s also easy to use.

High-Tech Makeover

Speaking of easy to use, we’re pleased to tell you that Honda listened to customers and brought back the volume control knob. This may seem like a minor detail to some, but many people expressed their desire to make life a little simpler. Also simple to operate is the available, tablet-sized 7-inch Display Audio Touchscreen that dominates the dash. It’s your command center for controlling a variety of cutting-edge infotainment technology.  

Push-button start/stop, dual-zone climate controls, an electronic parking brake, rear USB charging ports, 4-way power adjustable front passenger seat, and 8-way power adjustable driver’s seat contribute to the CR-V’s class-leading convenience and comfort. Throw in available leather seats and other luxury appointments to take your CR-V to an unexpected level of sophisticated refinement.

You’ll also appreciate the CR-V’s technologically advanced infotainment and safety features. Bluetooth® Streaming Audio, PANDORA®, and a convenient USB audio interface come standard. Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® allows you to make and receive calls with a touch of a button on the available leather-wrapped steering wheel. And you’ll get SiriusXM™ Radio and HD Radio® when you move up to the EX-L and Touring models.

A New Safety Standard

Innovative safety also puts the new 2017 Honda CR-V ahead of the pack. Thanks to the advanced Honda Sensing™ suite of active safety technologies, you’ll drive your CR-V with confidence. These available safety features include Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, Forward Collision Warning, Collision Mitigation Braking, and Road Departure Mitigation. We should also mention that a multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines is standard equipment.

We expect the exciting and all-new 2017 Honda CR-V to be arriving at our Central Ohio Honda Dealers near Dublin and Lancaster Ohio in the very near future. Please contact the Central Ohio Honda dealer nearest you for updates.

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline – An Instant Hit With Truck Buyers

2017-honda-ridgeline

After a two-year hiatus, the all-new 2nd-generation 2017 Honda Ridgeline for sale near Columbus is already becoming a hit with consumers who are in the market for a midsize pickup that can get the job done, whether at work or at play. That’s not surprising because there’s a lot to like about the new 2017 Ridgeline.

Classic Style With A Modern Flair

For starters, there’s the Ridgeline’s handsome new sheetmetal. Honda designers took a fresh approach, crafting a pickup that’s a match for anything its competitors can throw at it. The lines are clean, classic, and contemporary. Going up against the like of the Chevy Colorado, GMC Canyon, Toyota Tacoma, and Nissan Frontier, the new Ridgeline gets high marks for returning to a more truck-like appearance with a straightforward shape that’s nevertheless modern and aerodynamic. Plus, the Ridgeline is the only unibody truck out there right now, which helps to explain its rock-solid and excellent road manners.

An Interior That Goes The Extra Mile

Honda did the smart thing by giving the Ridgeline a close resemblance to the recently updated 2016 Honda Pilot SUV. The new Ridgeline shares many of the Pilot’s outstanding appointments, infotainment technology, and features, making it a truck that’s easy to live with. The spacious cabin mirrors that of the Pilot, affording the Ridgeline’s interior an upscale appearance packed with clever convenience. The exclusive 60/40 Split Lift-Up Rear Seats, for example, lets you load up lots of stuff in the Ridgeline’s commodious cabin.

A Truckload Of Ingenuity

Speaking of clever, you’ll be amazed at some of the amazing innovations that put the Ridgeline ahead of its competitors. Take the exclusive rear tailgate, which both folds down like a traditional truck but can also swing open horizontally for easier access to the Ridgeline’s bed. A unique In-Bed Trunk® lets you lock up valuable items and keep them out of sight without affecting the truck bed’s usability.

Plus, you’ll groove to your favorite tunes at work or at play with the available and industry-first Truck Bed Audio System. You can also sync your playlists and other smartphone capabilities via the latest Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ technology.

Powerful, Safe & Fuel-Efficient

Motivating the new 2017 Ridgeline is Honda’s powerful and responsive 3.5-liter, 280-hp V6 engine adapted from its Pilot SUV cousin that delivers an authoritative 262 lb.-ft. of torque via a smooth six-speed automatic transmission. Fuel economy is also one of the Ridgeline’s strong suits, getting up to an EPA-estimated* 19 mpg city/26 mpg highway. The Ridgeline can also tow up to 5,000 pounds with the available all-wheel drive and has a rated payload of 1,584 pounds.
