Frank Ancona Honda Awaits the Debut of the New 2017 Honda Ridgeline

image00

Honda will unveil the all-new 2017 Ridgeline pickup at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit on January 11, 2016, replacing the award-winning first-generation Ridgeline that has been on the market since 2005.

According to Honda’s website, when the Ridgeline was introduced, it redefined pickups by blurring the lines between full size versatility and compact practicality. The new 2017 model will further improve on the space, comfort and utility that made the original model one of the most forward-thinking vehicles in its class.

Following the 2017 Ridgeline’s world debut at the Detroit Auto Show, the all-new model will make its television debut during a 60-second TV spot during the 3rd quarter of Super Bowl 50.

In a Honda press release, Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda Automobile Division, said, “The big game is the largest and most coveted stage to show the truck. Super Bowl 50 is the right time and the right venue to communicate Honda’s continued leadership in light trucks. The multi-platform approach will enable Ridgeline to come out of the gate strong in 2016.”

The new 2017 Ridgeline is set to launch at Honda dealerships nationwide within the first half of 2016, joining Honda’s expanded lineup of innovative light truck models, including the HR-V crossover, the CR-V, Pilot and the Odyssey minivan.

In an article posted on Autoweek, Conrad said, “We developed this new Honda Ridgeline to offer something new and fundamentally better suited to the way many buyers use their truck. Ridgeline will deliver everything you’d expect in a Honda from incredible packaging and fuel-efficiency to top safety technologies and innovative, segment-first features. We’re honored to once again debut the Ridgeline in Detroit at the North American International Auto Show.”

New safety technologies built into the 2013 Civic include the application of the next-gen Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ II (ACE™ II) body structure, which includes additional front end structures designed to help increase occupant protection by dispersing crash energy in narrow overlap frontal crashes, and should help the Civic obtain a top rating in the new small-offset crash test conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Also new are SmartVent™ side airbags, side curtain airbags with a rollover sensor and the availability of Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) systems, which make their compact-class debut in the 2013 Honda Civic Hybrid.

Featuring the widest array of powertrain choices available in the segment, the Civic lineup is designed to meet the diverse needs of today’s compact-vehicle buyer.

    2012 Honda Civic Hybrid’s New Fuel Efficient feature: ECO Assist

    No Comments on 2012 Honda Civic Hybrid’s New Fuel Efficient feature: ECO Assist

    Here is some information from Honda’s website on the new ECO Assist feature on the 2012 Honda Civic Hybrid.

    He who drives with the most efficiency, wins.

    Push Yourself

    The Civic Hybrid now has a quick and easy way to boost your efficiency. Just push the ECON button[1]. The engine and other power-using systems will then go into super-efficient mode to maximize your mileage.

    Coach is Calling

    If you’re trying to squeeze every mile out of a gallon (and who isn’t these days?), keep an eye on the Honda Eco Assist™[1] feature. Those blue and green bars on either side of the speedometer indicate your level of efficiency as you drive.

    Hybrids Go the Distance

    All Civic models have Eco Assist™, but the Hybrid model makes the most of it by giving you a handy Eco Guide to help you along the way, and by tabulating your Eco Score at the end of each drive.

    Give Me an MPG

    Take advantage of all the gas-saving technology in a new Civic Hybrid, and you can get an EPA estimated 44 mpg[2] on the highway. That’s money in the tank. And a neighborly nod to the environment.

    Leaves, a Legacy

    The Civic Hybrid benefits from all the innovations since Honda introduced the first gas-electric hybrid to the American market in 1999. It’s all led to this latest milestone: a next-generation Civic Hybrid available with an impressive AT-PZEV CARB Emissions Rating[3].

    [1] Eco Assist and the ECON button are trademarks of Honda Motor Co., Ltd., and may not be used or reproduced without prior written approval.

    [2] 44 city/44 hwy/44 combined mpg. Based on 2012 EPA mileage estimates. Use for comparison purposes only. Do not compare to models before 2008. Your actual mileage will vary depending on how you drive and maintain your vehicle.

    2012 Honda Civic 44 MPG Hybrid Provides Fuel Efficient Alternatives to High Gas Prices

    No Comments on 2012 Honda Civic 44 MPG Hybrid Provides Fuel Efficient Alternatives to High Gas Prices

    Posted By: Jason Heard

    Here is a recent blog post from Gas 2.0, written by Christopher DeMorro, announcing the 44 mpg rating of the new 2012 Honda Civic Hybrid.

    Honda Civic Hybrid: 44 MPG, up to 68.7 MPG?

    Hello, Prius? Yeah, there’s a new guy in the neighborhood, and he’d like to talk about fuel efficiency. His name is the 2012 Honda Civic Hybrid, and he’s got a 44/44/44 mpg rating. And he looks like a car.

    While its not quite the 45 mpg rating we were promised, this 44 mpg rating on the 2012 Honda Civic Hybrid is an impressive feat of engineering for a number of reasons, not the least of which was building a hybrid on one of the top selling vehicle platforms of all time. That could help the Civic Hybrid to attain the sales volume needed to make an impact on the dominant Prius sales. But as I’ve pointed out before, the MPG Gap is quickly closing between Toyota’s hybrid and the rest of the crowd, and they’re doing it in vehicles with more mass market appeal. The Civic Hybrid is 7 MPG behind in highway driving, but only 4 in the city, and I like that I could buy a Civic Hybrid, and most people wouldn’t even notice the difference (on the outside at least.)

    So how did Honda improve its hybrid system for that lovely 44 mpg rating? They gave the new Civic Hybrid lithium-ion batteries to start with, which were 30% smaller than the old nickel-hydride battery pack (that the Prius V gets stuck with here in the states.) They also gave the hybrid a slightly larger engine, from 1.3 to 1.5 liters, which provides more power using the same amount of fuel. The electric motors also had their output bumped up to 20 kW as well. All told, HybridCars was able to get 68.7 mpg on a 10-mile road course set up by Honda, the best mpg score of the day during a media preview earlier in April (where was my invite?? I coulda done better.)

    Alas, the 2012 Honda Civic Hybrid will have a starting cost of $24,050; throw in leather, satellite radio and navigation and you’re talking closer to $27,000. Honda doesn’t have too high of sales hopes for the 2012 Honda Civic Hybrid at just around 1,300 units a month, but with the extra volume from other Civic sales they can continue to invest in fuel-saving technology that will eventually spread out across their whole lineup. Sure, some media outlets aren’t happy with the lack of dynamic changes to the Civic’s looks, but I really like the looks of the most recent Civics. It feels like a completely different class of car from the Civics of old, but it doesn’t come across as trying to make a statement either. It’s just a really, really, really efficient version of the Civic, and that tickles me just right.

    2011 Honda Odyssey Receives Safest Minivan Honors

    No Comments on 2011 Honda Odyssey Receives Safest Minivan Honors

    Here is an article from Auto Evolution, written by Daniel Patrascu, announcing that the Honda Odyssey has recently been named the safest minivan for 2011 by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), and the National Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

    Honda Odyssey, Safest Minivan for 2011

    As a testimony to the way in which Honda’s new Odyssey minivan has been designed, two of America’s most renowned safety organizations, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and the National Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) have both given the model their highest scores in the crash test conducted this year. The achievement, in the case of other models not surprising, comes to establish the Odyssey as the first and single minivan to have achieved top scores from both organizations this year.

    Both of the organizations crash tested the Odyssey in the beginning of the year, but only now the Japanese car maker can safely say that their vehicle is the best in its class as far as the safety of the occupants go.

    The new Odyssey, launched last year, is Honda’s take on a segment that, because of the competition, is growing harder and harder to control. Several important players fight for a piece of the market that stands for a whole lot more in the US than in Europe.

    Honda’s Odyssey, seen by the manufacturer who produces it as one of the most successful minivans it has ever made, is trying to build on the all-American appeal by being designed and engineered in the US and assembled at the Honda Manufacturing of Alabama (HMA) plant, using mostly domestic parts.

    For the new model year, Honda has tweaked the model a bit, adding little extras like a more powerful 3.5l i-VTEC V6 engine (248 hp), a new 3-mode second-row seat design or a rear entertainment system with a 16.2-inch ultrawide split-screen display.

    Honda Civic GX Tops Greenest Cars List for Eighth Straight Year

    No Comments on Honda Civic GX Tops Greenest Cars List for Eighth Straight Year

    Here is a blog post from Forbes, written by William Pentland, about the Honda Civic GX receiving the top vote for the greenest vehicle from the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy

    Honda Claims Greenest Car Honors, Again

    Honda’s Civic GX took the top spot in the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy’s 14th annual “green car” rankings for the eighth consecutive year.

    Honda managed to secure the title amidst a rapidly expanding field of electric cars, plug-in electric hybrids, gasoline hybrids, diesels, natural gas vehicles, and the relentlessly improving “conventional” gasoline vehicles. But below the top spot, the “Greenest” list sees a shake-up: the all-electric Nissan Leaf places second, followed by the gasoline-powered Smart Fortwo. Hybrids take the next three spots, followed closely by Ford’s new Fiesta SFE and the Chevrolet Cruze Eco. Also notable on this year’s list is the Hyundai Elantra, with a 4 mile-per-gallon jump in fuel economy over the 2010 model. Rounding out the “Greenest” are the Mazda 2 and the much-touted Chevrolet Volt “extended-range EV.”

    The strong showing of conventional vehicles in the top twelve is a testament to how serious manufacturers have gotten about recasting these vehicles as fuel-sippers with transmission refinements, weight savings, and sophisticated internal combustion engines.

    “We’re seeing an increasing number of highly efficient gasoline options from both foreign and domestic automakers along with the first electric vehicles. Ford introduced the Fiesta this year and Chevrolet debuted the Cruze, both of which do exceedingly well in our ratings,” said ACEEE vehicle analyst Shruti Vaidyanathan.

    No Comments on USA Today Announces: Honda Odyssey earns top five-star safety rating

    Once again, Honda comes up on top when it comes to safety ratings.  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has recently awarded the 2011 Honda Odyssey with a five star rating from their new crash-test rating system.

    Honda Odyssey earns top five-star safety rating

    The 2011 Honda Odyssey received an overall rating of five stars in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s new crash-test rating system, the safety agency announced today.

    The Odyssey’s overall composite score is composed of a five-star frontal, four-star rollover and a five-star rating for the combined side pole and barrier tests. The side barrier test is an area where other vehicles have shown weakness with the safety agency’s new testing format. The side pole test simulates a 20-mph side-impact crash into a 10-inch-diameter pole or tree at a 75-degree angle just behind the A-pillar on the driver’s side.

    According to Honda, the four-star rollover rating is actually the highest rating a vehicle of this body type can achieve under NHTSA’s testing methodology:

    The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety recently announced the Odyssey received a top score of Good in all of its crash tests but hasn’t completed a roof-strength test that is required to earn the Top Safety Pick designation.

    Out of the more than 50 models NHTSA has tested so far, only 11 have earned a five-star rating under the revamped system: Acura MDX, BMW 5 Series, Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Cruze, Chevrolet Silverado, Chevy Traverse, GMC Acadia, GMC Sierra, Honda Accord, Hyundai Sonata and Volvo XC60. NHTSA still has few more models left to test for 2011.

    7/8/2010

    Although, I didn’t buy my Honda at Frank Ancona, I did take it there for an oil change. I called and they were able to get my car in that afternoon, unlike some other dealerships. I pulled in and my car was taken car of quickly. They have a WONDERFUL waiting room. There is coffee, juice, snacks, children’s books/toys, and a clean environment. They also gave my Honda a quick car wash before bringing it back to me. I highly recommend this dealership!

    Awesome place. They really take care of you here. They get the job done, and do it right the very first time! 5 stars all the way!

    by Soccer Mom 03/02/2009

    I have been going to F.A Honda’s Service dept for the past 6 months or so. I have been very pleased with the Service. David Ricketts is very professional and honest. He does not recommend unnecessary maintainence work to be done. Being a single mom and someone who doesn’t know too much about car maintenance, I’m very comfortable taking my van to that Service dept. I know they will NOT ” take me for a ride”.
