The 2017 Honda CR-V Has the Power and Space for Your Mountain Adventures

  • 2017 Honda CR-V

    The 2017 Honda CR-V is built for the uncertain gravel roads of Montana. It has an amped-up engine and the towing power to haul your gear across any terrain. Take a closer look at what the CR-V can do.

What Is the 2017 CR-V Capable of?

The CR-V comes standard with an Inline 4-cylinder 184 hp engine on the base LX model, while the EX, EX-L, and Touring trims come equipped with a single-scroll MHI TD03 turbo that can muster 190 hp. You can take control of all that power with the available Real Time AWD that makes for speedy distribution of power, improved acceleration, greater efficiency, and better handling. The system automatically transfers power from the front to the rear wheels to avoid loss of traction in adverse conditions. The AWD system makes these changes so smoothly, you won’t even notice them when driving onto different terrain. The smart shifting of power where it’s needed most also improves your fuel economy. Standard on all CR-V models is the Hill Start Assist system, which prevents the vehicle from unexpected rolling while pulling away from a parked position on steep grades. The CR-V is held in place after releasing the brake, allowing the driver to engage the throttle without inadvertently rolling.

The CR-V seats five comfortably so you’ll be able to take your whole crew to the jobsite or all the kids to practice. Customize your comfort with a six-way manually adjustable driver’s seat in the LX and a 12-way power-adjustable driver’s seat in the EX, EX-L, and Touring models. Multiple drivers can save their preferences with the two-position memory and get comfortable quickly in colder climates and harsh winters with the heated front seats. All models are equipped with fold-down 60/40-split rear seats for easy storage.


The more than 39 cubic feet of cargo space in the CR-V gives it an edge over the competition when it comes to hauling. Power tools for the next job or supplies for the next cookout can easily fit into the CR-V’s spacious cargo area. Up your storage game with these available accessories:

  • Cargo Liner: Easily protect the cargo area, floor, sides, and back of the second-row seats. It even folds neatly over the rear bumper to keep it safe from scrapes, nicks, mud, and dirt.
  • Cargo Net: Keep those groceries from sliding around in the back by storing items securely.
  • Cargo Organizer: Rigid partitions and compartments keep anything you’re hauling in order.
  • Cargo Tray: Added protection for the floor from spills and mud. You can even clean it with soap and water. The cargo tray matches the interior and has raised sides for even more protection.

Maybe you’ve loaded up the cargo area with tents and hammocks for the weekend or coolers for the hiking trip—never fear; the CR-V offers even more storage on the roof:

  • Roof Rails: Versatile and made to handle up to 165 pounds of gear, the roof rails allow you to bring along a variety of items.
  • Kayak Attachment: For the times when you’re headed to the river for the weekend and plan to hit the rapids. The kayak attachment features adjustable saddles to fit any size kayak and are soft yet durable to ensure no scrapes. Ratcheting tie-downs and two straps are included.
  • Roof Box: For lanterns, extra tents, and other gear, the roof box features 13 cubic feet of secure, lockable storage and a rear opening for convenient loading and unloading.
  • Snowboard or Ski Attachment: Head to the snow-covered mountains with up to four pairs of skis or two snowboards. Lock them in place and easily unlock them using the oversized push button designed specifically for loading and unloading while wearing gloves.

Towing Capabilities

You’ve loaded up the cargo area with supplies and packed your gear onto the roof. It wouldn’t be an SUV without the ability to tow some large loads. The CR-V’s monster towing capacity of 1,500 pounds ensures you won’t have to leave anything behind. The CR-V has all you need to start towing, including a draw bar, retaining pin, and clip. You just need to provide the trailer. You can pass any rugged terrain like Montana’s gravel roads with the 7.8 inches of ground clearance on the 2WD version. A write-up in Car and Driver states, “Its 8.2 inches of ground clearance with all-wheel drive mean navigating unmapped roads is possible.” The CR-V is ready for your adventures. Are you?
