Mud, snow, sand, and uncertain terrain are no match for Honda all-wheel drive cars, which offer the traction and control you need in a wide variety of road and weather conditions. When you need the right amount of torque applied to all four wheels, all-wheel drive automatically adjusts for prevailing conditions. Honda’s lineup of AWD-capable vehicles offers the perfect selection for drivers who need comfort, dependability, and strength for the road ahead.

You can enjoy the efficiency, power, and versatility you desire along with the stability you need.
Come rain, ice, or snow, weather doesn’t discourage the 2019 Honda Ridgeline AWD from hitting the road. The all-wheel drive works in conjunction with Honda’s Intelligent Variable Torque ManagementTM (i-VTM4TM) AWD 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.
Drivers that find themselves quickly adding up the miles will appreciate the fuel efficiency of the 2019 Honda Ridgeline. With an impressive, EPA-estimated rating of 18 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway, you won’t be making frequent fuel stops. Power isn’t sacrificed in the name of fuel economy, as the Ridgeline’s 3.5L V6 engine produces a healthy 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque, capable of towing up to 5,000 pounds.
The 2019 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.
With enough room for the whole family and a plethora of safety and modern technology features, the 2018 Honda CR-V is more than capable of handling any road trip or daily commute. The crossover SUV is a safe choice for any situation. To make your drive through Illinois even more safe, Honda’s Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control SystemTM is available on all four CR-V trim levels.
Drive with confidence in the toughest of road conditions, including slippery or snowy roadways, while the AWD system does all of the work. The Real Time AWD system continuously adjusts to driving conditions, only assisting when necessary. The system works independently, sending torque to each wheel as-needed. This includes wet or slick surfaces, icy roads, mud, or dry pavement. Torque is also sent to the outside wheels during extreme cornering, making your drive that much more precise and safe.
The 2018 Honda CR-V includes two engine options: a 2.4-liter in-line 4-cylinder with an output of 184 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque or a 1.5-liter with 190 hp and 179 lb-ft of torque. Both engines come with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) with sport mode, which allows drivers to manually shift through the gears without having to work a clutch.
Versatility and control combine in the 2018 Honda HR-V, which offers several traction technologies, including vehicle stability assist and traction control, along with the available AWD drive system that uses intelligent control to constantly monitor and adjust for traction issues on the road. All of this capability comes with an engine that offers up to 31 mpg on the highway and a continuously variable transmission (CVT).
The 2018 HR-V offers three different interior configurations to help you bring along the gear you need, whether your adventures involve snow, mud, or sand. The utility mode provides up to 58.8 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded down, the long mode offers nearly eight feet of room with the passenger side and rear seats down, and the tall mode permits almost four feet of vertical space when the rear seats are folded up.
The 2018 Honda Pilot is the answer to any road trip with spacious seating for the whole family, a wealth of safety features, and available all-wheel drive (AWD) for optimum handling and traction. The Pilot utilizes an Intelligent Variable Torque Management (i-VTM4) AWD System that automatically activates when the rear wheels lose traction, instantly sending more torque to the wheel or wheels in need to boost traction, handling, and responsiveness. All of this without a second thought, the AWD system functions on its own without any input from the driver. However, the system can be manually controlled if the need arises by locking the rear differential in place with the flip of a switch to enjoy AWD mode up to speeds of 18 MPH—extremely useful when driving through deep snow or mud.
Every 2018 Honda Pilot is standard equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 engine capable of 280 hp, 262 lb-ft of torque, and the ability to tow up to 5,000 pounds, when properly equipped. A 6-speed automatic transmission comes standard on the LX, EX, and EX-L trim levels, while Touring and Elite models carry a 9-speed automatic transmission with shift-by-wire and paddle shifters for a manual-like, gear-shifting experience. In addition to an i-VTM4 AWD System, the Pilot can be outfitted with available Honda LaneWatch and Honda Sensing for comprehensive protection from every angle.
