How the 2020 Honda Ridgeline Beats the 2020 Toyota Tacoma in Macomb

Brad Deery Honda – How the 2020 Honda Ridgeline Beats the 2020 Toyota Tacoma in Macomb

What do you want from a midsize truck? That’s really the question when you compare the 2020 Honda Ridgeline vs 2020 Toyota Tacoma in Macomb, Illinois. The two pickups offer the serious hauling and towing capability that people want. Beyond that, there are some major differences that should help shoppers decide.

Ridgelines are all about giving you more space than a typical midsize truck. The beds measure four inches longer than the Tacoma’s 60-inch bed. Inside the cabin, there’s almost ten cubes of space more in the Ridgeline. That means the backseat offers generous legroom. Honda engineers improved entry by making the second-row doors open wider.

Since the Ridgeline offers more space for people, it can offer more space for cargo when the second-row seats are folded. To access the exclusive trunk, the Honda driver can swing the gate like a door. The weather-sealed trunk is built right into the bed floor. Your belongings stay dry despite the rain. For tailgating, you can pack it with ice and use it as a cooler. Built-in drains will whisk the melted ice away when you are through.

Power is another way that the Ridgeline woos pickup enthusiasts. The entry-level Tacoma is four-cylinder engine with only 159 horsepower. Obviously the Ridgeline’s 280-horsepower V6 will easily outpace that truck on the highway and handle serious hauling duties better.

If you step up to the 2020 Toyota Tacoma V6, the Ridgeline is still ahead by 20 horses. The Toyota V6 generates 260 horsepower vs the Ridgeline’s 280 horses. On the highway, this difference will be felt as the driver handles competitive acceleration. This is especially true if the truck is pulling a load. You can see that in the fact that the Honda claims class-best payload capability.

Many people assume that the Honda’s more powerful engine will mean poorer fuel economy. Actually the Ridgeline has class-leading V6 gas mileage. With its nine-speed automatic transmission, it manages 26 miles per gallon on the highway. Mated with a six-speed automatic, the Tacoma can only claim 22 miles per gallon highway. Ridgelines can also claim an extra mile per gallon in city driving.

Midsize truck shoppers and other pickup enthusiasts should head to Brad Deery Honda. Test-driving a Ridgeline is definitely a fun way to spend your time in Macomb, Illinois.

Why Choose 2020 Honda Accord Over the 2020 Toyota Camry

Brad Deery Honda – Why Choose 2020 Honda Accord Over the 2020 Toyota Camry

The Honda Accord and Toyota Camry are well known mid-size sedans that excel across the board. The Accord is regarded as one of the most athletic cars in the mid-size sedan class; it features a sleek, bold, and stylish design that is very appealing to the eyes. Beyond its beautiful exteriors, the Accord is a performance machine. It draws its power from a turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that produces up to 252 horsepower and an outstanding 273 pound-foot of torque, enough power to take the Accord from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.4 seconds. The family sedan is available with both an automatic and manual transmission, something uncommon with most of its competitors. The Accord boasts of spacious interiors that provide ample legroom for all body shapes and sizes. The top-end trims offer high-quality material finishes and a wide array of tech features to give the driver and passengers with maximum comfort throughout their trips. The Honda Accord is available in six trim levels; the base LX, Hybrid, Sport, EX, EX-L, and the top-end Touring. The Sport trim comes with 19-inch wheels, an advanced infotainment system, and 12-way power-adjustable driver’s seats.

In Toyota’s line-up, the Camry is on the most popular mid-size sedan. The stylish Camry offers several active safety features, agile handling, and smooth ride in general. It is powered by a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that generates 203 horsepower. It provides ample spacious interiors that can accommodate five people, although when tall people occupy the front seats, they significantly reduce the legroom for the passengers in the rear seats. The Camry is also available in six trim options, including; the L, LE, SE, XLE, XSE, and the top-tier sporty TRD. The TRD comes with a powerful V6 engine and features some available upgrades as standard. The base L model features Siri Eyes Free, a forward-collision warning, adaptive cruise control, and lane departure warning.

2020 Honda Civic Head-To-Head Against Models Like the 2020 Toyota Corolla

Brad Deery Honda – 2020 Honda Civic Head-To-Head Against Models Like the 2020 Toyota Corolla

The 2020 Honda Civic sedan was created to compete head-to-head against models like the 2020 Toyota Corolla. This year’s Civic came with a host of new features and a complete redesign in a virtual party of sedan dominance. Your Corolla remains fairly unchanged from in year’s past, leaving the new Civic to take the competition.

What features should you be especially excited about this year? Brad Deery Honda had trouble narrowing it down to just five features to tell you about, but we managed to do it. Here are five bold features on the new Civic that you should be ready to celebrate when you buy one of these this year in West Burlington, Iowa.

The Civic’s new Road Departure Mitigation System is a world class driver-assist features that has no equal on the Corolla. When you’re veering out of your lane or departing your course, the new Civic is capable of adjusting steering, braking, and even acceleration in a full program to get you back on track.

Not looking forward to winter driving in your sedan? Well, when you’ve got a Civic, you get heated seating for not just your front passengers, but also your outboard rear passengers. If only every automaker in the world would remember that there are 5 people in a sedan and all of them deserve to be warm and toasty during cold months.

The one-touch power moonroof gives you a Civic with a crisp view of the outdoors, and we all know just how much the power option increases the value of your moonroof options. With just a click of a button, you can smell the fresh air of the outdoors and appreciate the view as well.

On cold days, you’ll be in good hands with a 2020 Civic that is capable of remote start. Grab your smartphone and control your Civic from the comforting confines of your home before starting out for the day. You’ll never have to brave the cold weather again (unless it’s to go hop in your fully heated Civic).

Finally, we’re especially impressed with the Civic’s power this year. Thanks to a robust 174 horsepower powertrain, we’ve finally got the more imposing Civic we’ve always want. It’s the ideal powertrain on both power and efficiency, by far combining the two for the greatest power and fuel economy for you smart, frugal minded shoppers out there.

And those are just the first five features we could narrow down for you. There’s so much more to the Civic than these 5 features! Learn all about Civic trims and amenities now.

Why Buy the 2020 Honda CR-V in West Burlington IA

Why Buy the 2020 Honda CR-V in West Burlington IA

Brad Deery Honda – Why Buy the 2020 Honda CR-V in West Burlington IA

The 2020 Honda CR-V is a brand new creation this year, a testament to Honda’s commitment to one of its newest midsize models. We believe that the CR-V will be a classic in its own class this year, but it especially takes over when it comes to facing off against the 2020 Toyota RAV4. The Rav’s peculiar focus on going more off-road left many interior amenities vacant this year, and we were disappointed with its visibility as well.

The CR-V more than makes up for the emptiness left by the RAV4. With a beautiful hybrid version that has a long driving range and sophisticated, uplifting colors like Sonic Gray Pearl, Radiant Red Metallic, and Crystal Black Pearl, you’ve got a versatile, lively CR-V that really wears its athletic build very well.

Brad Deery Honda is always proud to present the CR-V to our customers every year, but this year’s CR-V is a special treat. Its base model sports 17-inch alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, and a more angled roofline for a genuinely stunning appearance. It’s sporty times two. That’s just the beginning of your fun on the base model, though. It features a 160-watt 4-speaker audio system that works beautifully with the Bluetooth HandsFreeLink system and all of your USB audio perks.

The fully loaded trim sports 19-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights with auto on/off, a 330-watt premium audio system that features 9 speakers, roof rails, and amazing interior ambient lighting that gives you a calming place to meditate after a hard day at work. It also features rain-sensing windshield wipers for a features that’s part convenience, part safety. A hands-free power tailgate makes for easy days of loading and/or unloading your precious cargo supply.

This sporty mid-size SUV continues to impress the not easily impressed year after year. Your CR-V is going to make short work of the RAV4 in any honest comparison. And while off-roaders might find some utility on the RAV4, it’s highly unlikely that most people will pick an off-roader for their family if it’s lacking in other necessary features like those offered by the family-friendly CR-V.
