Honda’s Georgia Plant Receives $100 Million Investment

Honda’s Georgia Plant Receives $100 Million

When it comes to the minivan segment, the Honda Odyssey is a game-changer. With extremely thoughtful features like a rear-seat entertainment system, an in-van vacuum cleaner, and a 115V power outlet, there’s no doubt that this van is ahead of the curve. Yet, it’s about to become even more advanced, thanks to Honda’s investments in its northwest Georgia Plant.

When Honda’s Georgia plant receives $100 million in investments from Honda, it will be put towards developing the first-ever 10-speed automatic transmission for front-wheel drive vehicles. The first vehicle to receive the new 10-speed automatic transmission will be the 2018 Honda Odyssey. Later, the same transmission will go into other Honda and Acura vehicles, but for now the Honda-engineered transmission is getting tested on the minivan.

So, why the change? The new 10-speed automatic transmission is expected to greatly increase fuel efficiency as well as acceleration. It should also change gears more quickly, making highway driving more productive and responsive.

Over 18,000 Georgians are employed at automobile factories of some kind. Honda’s new transmission isn’t just good for its lineup, but it’s positive for the job market, too. We can wait to test it out at Bryan Honda, and invite you to join us as soon as it’s available to test drive.

Updated 2017 CR-V More Spacious and Efficient

Honda updated 2017 CR-V - More Spacious and Efficient

The Honda CR-V is a best-selling member of its class for a reason, and that’s because it’s packed with tons of cutting-edge features that make driving easy, fun, and more convenient than ever. Practicality pairs with style and performance to make a great family car. Now, the updated 2017 CR-V is more spacious and efficient than ever, and adds a ton of value to this already excellent and reputable vehicle.

The 2017 CR-V is entering a brand-new generation, with the fourth-generation model sitting on a new platform with an all-new design that’s as striking yet affordable as ever. The more modern look gives away the CR-V’s more capable driving dynamics, thanks to two efficient engine options and a CVT for boosted fuel economy. The 190-HP turbocharged 1.5-liter engine is the more efficient of the two with a fuel rating of 29 mpg combined.

The updated 2017 CR-V also features a longer wheelbase as well as increased height and width, allowing for even more volume in the interior for passengers and cargo. You can now expand the cargo area to up to 76 cubic feet by folding down the rear row, too. Either way, the new CR-V is committed to being more modern, efficient, and comfortable than ever.
