Waiting for the 2017 Honda Odyssey in Waco?

Posted by Jessica McFall on Fri, Sep 23, 2016 @ 12:09 PM

 

 

If there is one thing that comes to mind for a parent getting in the swing of things for back-to-school, its probably transportation. Taking the kids to and from school, participating in the weekly car pool, going to and fro soccer and dance practices, and picking up dinner all require a not only reliable car, but one that can handle these daily tasks with ease. The 2017 Honda Odyssey in Waco isn't expected to make its debut until November or December, but this new model year is expected to have some really cool features. So stay tuned as Greg May Honda goes through what to expect.

  

The last time the Honda Odyssey received a noticeable facelift was in 2014. Although nothing has been officially unveiled yet, there is good reason to believe that this 2017 Odyssey will be a little more updated. It has been rumored that this 5th generation Odyssey will be based off of 2016 Acura models. Unlike boxy minivans of the past, this minivan will have clean lines and be streamlined for ultimate styling.

  

We can expect the interior to be drastically updated, as are the current 2017 model Hondas. The interior will mirror the exterior essentially, with clean lines and a modern-feel. We have reason to believe that the HondaSensing suite will be offered, as does the 2017 Accord, 2017 Ridgeline and 2017 Fit. This minivan will be the most powerful on the block with at least 250 horsepower, which really makes it a competitive option. There have also been rumors that it will have an improved VCM like the 2016 Pilot and an All Wheel Drive option.

 

Trust us, Greg May Honda is just as excited as you are about the new 2017 Honda Odyssey in San Antonio. We don't even know all of the details yet, but we know it's going to be a game changer in the minivan world! Stay tuned for updates for now, but if you just can't wait you can always check out our 2016 Honda Odyssey inventory!

Looking Forward to the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback in Waco

Posted by Jessica McFall on Thu, Sep 22, 2016 @ 15:09 PM

 

You may have heard a little rumor about Honda coming out with a brand new vehicle – and we're happy to say those rumors are true! Be on the lookout for the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback in Waco, coming (hopefully) soon to Greg May Honda. Until it arrives, we've got a few details on what to expect in this hatchback!

Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda Division of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. says, “The Civic Hatch has been a staple for Honda in Europe, but has long been the forbidden fruit for Honda fans in the U.S. Now, we’re bringing this sporty, stylish and versatile Civic Hatchback to North America, as we amp up the performance of our incredible Civic lineup with each new Civic model.”

It's not forbidden any longer for all of you U.S. citizens! The Civic Hatch styling is European-inspired and a head-turner, for sure, with 5-doors. It will be available in 5 different trims (LX, Sport, EX, EX-L and Sport Touring) with a 1.5L 4-cylinder engine with a 174 horsepower. But it's not just a beautiful, powerful car you're getting, it's a fuel efficient one, too! The anticipated EPA-rated fuel economy is 31 MPG city, 40 highway and 34 combined*! So you can have your cake and eat it too with this new Civic.

The Honda Sensing suite is also available on this new hatchback and includes lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warning, and automated braking). The Honda Sensing safety suite is truly revolutionary in the car world and even though the Civic hatchback hasn't been tested, we can expect top safety ratings in the next year. When you get the latest and greatest with Honda, you're signing up for the most advanced safety features, and sometimes that makes all the difference.

Sleek European styling, a powerful engine, top safety features and incredible fuel economy... What can the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback in Waco not do? While you're patiently waiting for the Civic Hatch to arrive in our Greg May Honda showroom, stick around a while and check out what else we have in stock. We'll be happy to help you out!

Get Excited about the 2017 Honda Accord in Waco!

Posted by Jessica McFall on Mon, Sep 12, 2016 @ 14:09 PM

 

The wait is over- the 2017 Honda Accord in Waco has made its debut in the Greg May Honda showroom! This sophisticated yet affordable sedan is making jaws drop all over the nation because of its eye-catching exterior and innovative interior. If you're even mildly interested in the 2017 Accord, stick around to learn more about what you can expect in this brand new sedan!

 

Now around for more than 40 years, the Accord has had time to evolve into the best possible option for a mid-size sedan. Through trial, error and successes, Honda has truly perfected what we now know as the 2017 Accord! The Accord is equipped with features like mounted steering wheel audio and cruise controls, Bluetooth, rearview camera on all models, Honda Sensing suite, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and even available navigation. For extreme comfort, there is also an available 10-way power seats with memory functionality for those of you that switch off the driver's role every now and then.

 

On the outside you can see that the striking and sleek lines are a tribute to the Honda Accord's overall air of elegance and sophistication. The LED lights, however, show that the Accord means business. Daytime running lights allow the Accord to be unmistakably visible whether its day or night, and you never miss a beat. This model year, the Accord is available in 9 different bold colors including our favorite, San Marino Red!

 

As far as power goes, the Accord offers four and six cylinder engine options. The standard 2.4L 4-cylinder engine puts out a powerful 185 horsepower, which really beats out rival sedan options in terms of performance. Even more impressive than that is going the next step up with a 6-cylinder engine that measures 3.5L, producing 278 horsepower (available on EX-L and Touring sedans). It's hard to find a car today that is elegant and powerful – but the Accord makes it look easy.

 

Power, refinement, cutting-edge technology and more - the 2017 Honda Accord in Waco redefines what it means to be a sedan. Greg May Honda cordially invites you to take this unique sedan for a smooth ride around town, we know you'll love it!

New Chevy Colorado vs. 2017 Honda Ridgeline in Waco

Posted by Jessica McFall on Mon, Jul 25, 2016 @ 15:07 PM

Everyone is talking about trucks in Waco, and for great reasons! Trucks today aren't what they used to be; they're so much more than extra cargo room. They're still functional, but trucks today are luxurious enough to pull up to the valet without a second glance. Upgrade your ride by choosing a brand new truck. First, let's go over your options. Today at Greg May Honda, we're looking at the new Chevy Colorado and the 2017 Honda Ridgeline in Waco!

 

To start with the fun stuff, the Ridgeline has way more technology and comfort offerings. The Ridgeling RTL-E Black Edition has memory seats that activate different, customized positions for the driver. But memory seats aren't the only feature that the Colorado doesn't offer, it's the one-touch power windows, the push-start button, dual-zone AC, standard adaptive cruise control, standard Bluetooth wireless (Bluetooth costs extra on the Colorado), an in-bed trunk, a 115-volt electrical outlet, and rear AC vents (a must in Texas). With all of these features combined, you'll be significantly more comfortable in the Ridgeline.

 

You wouldn't want to choose a truck without maximum performance capabilities, so the Ridgeline is the way to go. The Honda truck's 280 horsepower V6 engine is refreshing as it's quite a bit faster than it's predecessor. The Chevy truck on the other hand touts only 200 horsepower and has the acceleration more of a mid-size care than SUV. Speaking of SUVs, the Ridgeline has the cabin-feel of the SUV being wider and favoring its cousin, the Honda Pilot. This is great news for those of you who plan to cart the family around in the new truck! The new Colorado is slightly larger than previous generations, but still feels narrow and cramped.

 

On top of all of this, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline in Waco is takes more safety measures than does the Colorado. The Ridgeline (RTL-E/Black Edition) has standard Collision Mitigation Braking System, which warns the driver of a potential collision and will automatically brake if the driver doesn't react to alert. The Colorado offers a warning system, but not the automated braking feature that could potentially reduce the collision. The Ridgeline also offers a cross-path warning system and a 3D high-strength frame that surrounds the passenger compartment that provides extra impact protection.

 

Stronger, safer and more comfortable, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline in Waco is hard to beat! Greg May Honda is proud to offer such an incredible truck to our customers, so we invite you to take a test drive today! We promise you won't leave disappointed. See you soon!
