Living in the Richmond, KY, area means that we have plenty of access to the great outdoors. However, to get the most out of the wild you need a vehicle that’s up to the task. Luckily, here at Gates Honda, we’ve got an incredible selection of outdoor-ready vehicles.

To help you narrow down your search, we’re highlighting some of our favorite features on two of our most popular outdoor models.

Let’s start with the 2019 Honda Passport. This 2019 Honda model is all new this year, which means that it’s got only the latest features and design elements. If it looks familiar to you, that’s because it’s based on the larger three-row Honda Pilot, another great outdoor vehicle. We love it because of its spacious interior with plenty of passenger space, comfortable seating, and enhanced off-road ability. Cargo space comes in at 41.2 cubic feet behind the second row and 77.9 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down. It has a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds. Powering the 2019 Honda Passport is a 3.5-liter V6 engine that puts out 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque.

Next up is the 2019 Honda Ridgeline, the Honda response to pickup trucks. Pickups make some of the best outdoor vehicles, and this Honda model is no exception. The 2019 version is part of the second Honda Ridgeline generation introduced in 2017 and features a superior ride with exceptional handling, a unique two-way tailgate bed, and a sophisticated all-wheel-drive system with an independent rear suspension.

If you’re looking to get outdoors this summer in the Richmond, KY region, we invite you to stop by Gates Honda to explore all your outdoor-ready options like the 2019 Honda Passport and 2019 Honda Ridgeline. We’re confident that we can find the right vehicle for your needs. Visit us today.

What to Expect from Honda in 2020

The 2019 Honda Fit is a fan favorite here at Gates Honda for its subcompact stature and unique nature. While it’s not as roomy as the 2019 Honda CR-V or 2019 Honda Passport, the Honda Fit brings plenty to the table for drivers looking for efficiency.

Honda automakers want to keep this little car the fan favorite it is. That’s why the 2020 Honda Fit, which will debut at the Tokyo Auto Show later this fall, is getting all the treatments as it enters a new generation.

As part of the next-generation upgrade, the new Honda Fit is getting a bit of a redesigned look to the exterior. From the few photos we’ve seen, it appears that the upcoming model is going to be bolder and sportier looking, featuring a prominent front fascia.

While we have yet to get an authentic look at the interior, it seems like Honda automakers have done a lot of work to give drivers and passengers a more pleasant experience. The dashboard features a sleek horizontal two-toned appearance, vertical air vents, and a high-mount infotainment screen that elegantly rises out of the dash.

The new Honda Fit isn’t the automaker’s only project, however. It seems that Honda is ready to move into production on the Honda e, the final stage of an all-electric model we have only seen in prototypes, then called the Honda Urban EV.

It’s still uncertain when, or if, we’ll see the new Honda Fit hybrid model or the new Honda e here in the Richmond, KY area, but we’re confident that our favorite automaker will continue to provide us with plenty of fantastic options. For now, stop on by to shop current models for sale like the 2019 Honda Accord.

At Gates Honda, we want to put you in the perfect vehicle for your needs, whether that is a new Honda model or one of our used vehicles. Regardless of which vehicle you purchase, however, you will need to sort out financing options. This is where Gates Honda can make things smooth and easy for you.

While securing an auto loan may seem like a daunting task, it really isn’t that bad when you break it down. It helps if you do some work in advance, however. The first thing you should do is request a copy of your credit report from the three leading credit reporting agencies. You should look over each report to make sure it’s accurate. If you notice any mistakes, you need to take action to have them corrected.

Next, you need to create a budget. You should approach your budget with a dual mind set. First, you need to determine the amount you can afford to put down when you purchase a vehicle. You then need to figure out how much you can afford to pay on your car loan every month. Keep in mind that your loan payment will not be the only automotive expense you’ll need to cover every month. You’ll also need to pay for fuel, insurance, and maintenance.

With your budget set and your credit reports accurate, it’s now time to get pre-approved for a loan. You can submit an application to get pre-approved by Honda Financial Services on our website. Alternatively, you can swing by our Honda dealership near Lexington, KY to work with our finance experts directly.

Whether you want a new or pre-owned vehicle, we make the car loan process easy at Gates Honda. Stop by today!

Shopping for an automobile should be a lot of fun. Unfortunately, looking for a new car can be overwhelming at times because of all the different body styles and models that are available in the marketplace. You can take some of the stress out of the car buying process by researching different kinds of cars and choosing the body style you want to get before you visit a dealership.

When you visit our Honda dealership near Lexington, KY, you’ll see that our Honda lineup includes a variety of body styles. If you’re shopping for a car for a young driver, you may want to look through our Honda sedans. The sedan is a perennially-popular body style that has four doors and a full-size trunk. While some models have seating for four, most sedans can accommodate five passengers.

If you’re a college student, you may want some additional cargo space because you might have to move at the end of each school year. The 2019 Honda Fit is a five-door hatchback that has plenty of room for you to transport your stuff from one location to another.

Parents may find they need even more cargo space than a hatchback can provide. Drivers who need more cargo room and a vehicle that can accommodate more than five people should consider buying or leasing a 2019 Honda Odyssey or a three-row 2019 Honda Pilot. Minivans and SUVs like those vehicles are great picks for larger families.

Motorists who want a comfortable truck that can stand up to the jobsite will want to take a 2019 Honda Ridgeline for a test drive. This capable truck is versatile enough to handle the jobsite as well as a night out on the town with your friends.

To find the body style that’s best for you, visit Gates Honda now!
