Honda Cars That Are Great for Camping

October 7th, 2018 by

What do you enjoy doing during the fall? Do you tailgate, leaf peep, or attend as many fall festivals as you can? While all those things are fun, camping is also a favorite activity for many drivers this time of year.

With temperatures continuing to drop and the leaves starting to turn color, now is a wonderful time to sit around a campfire with friends and family members. Of course, any camping excursion can be made even better when you’re driving a versatile Honda vehicle like the 2019 Honda Pilot or the 2019 Honda Ridgeline.

The eight-passenger Honda Pilot is offered in five main trims. Every trim is powered by a 3.5-liter, V6 engine that’s paired with a six-speed automatic transmission on every model except the Touring and Elite trims. The SUV’s top two trims are equipped with a nine-speed automatic transmission instead. All-wheel drive is standard on the Elite model. Front-wheel drive is standard on the other trims, with all-wheel drive available as an option.

Being Honda dealers serving Lexington, KY and nearby areas, we’re thrilled to tell you that the 2019 Honda Pilot is equipped with Honda Sensing™, which will help you reach your campsite safely. This suite of advanced safety and driver assistive features includes adaptive cruise control, a front collision warning and mitigation system, road departure intervention, lane keeping assist, and automatic high beams.

If you’d prefer to go camping in a truck instead of a capable SUV, the 2019 Honda Ridgeline is for you. Available in six trims, the new Honda Ridgeline is outfitted with a 3.5-liter, V6 engine and a six-speed automatic transmission. The Honda Ridgeline is eligible for either front- or all-wheel drive. Like the Honda Pilot, the 2019 Honda Ridgeline has many desirable features, such as Bluetooth™ connectivity, a touchscreen interface, and a rearview camera.
