Now the 2015 Honda Pilot has arrived to our Waco dealership, and Greg May Honda is excited to provide you with some information about this new Honda and its new Special Edition trim level.

The new, 2015 Honda Pilot Special Edition (SE) offers some exciting special features, including a DVD rear entertainment system, pewter grey aluminum alloy wheels, a power moonroof with tilt feature, and Sirius XM radio. The Pilot SE also boasts sophisticated-looking special edition badging.

And the automaker will publish exclusive footage from major music festivals like Austin City Limits, the Governors Ball in New York, and Music Midtown in Atlanta.

2014 Venza vs. 2014 Crosstour in Waco

 

Greg May Honda in Waco is here with another car comparison for you if you're in the research step of your car buying process. Here's how the 2014 Toyota Venza and 2014 Honda Crosstour compare in terms of their perks:  

2014 Honda Crosstour: Overview of Perks  

2014 Honda Crosstour

  • The new Crosstour's engine options are mightier than the new Venza's. The Crosstour's 4-cylinder engine produces 11 more horsepower than the Venza's 4-cylinder engine (192 vs. 181). And the Honda's V6 engine produces 10 more horsepower (278 vs. 268).

  • In EPA tests, the 2014 Crosstour outperforms the 2014 Venza in terms of fuel economy. Its 4-cylinder engine gets an estimated 31 mpg on the highway, while the Venza's 4-cylinder engine only gets an estimated 26 mpg on the highway. And its V6 engine gets around 28 mpg on the highway, while the Venza's V6 engine lags behind, only getting around 25 mpg on the highway. (Based on 2014 EPA estimates. Use for comparison purposes only. Your mileage will vary).

  • To further enhance fuel efficiency, V6 Crosstour models come with an engine control system, which can shut down half of the engine's cylinders while the car is cruising.

  • With front and rear gas-charged shocks as well as variable-assist power steering, the Crosstour offers superior handling capabilities. Without these features, the Venza doesn't handle as well on choppy roads and in parking lots.

  • The new Crosstour offers handy ergonomic flourishes like extendable sun visors and armrest-mounted mirror controls. The Venza isn't equipped with these features.

2014 Toyota Venza: Overview of Perks

2014 Toyota Venza 

  • Toyota Venza owners benefit from free scheduled maintenance for two years or 25,000 miles (whichever comes first).

  • In Consumer Reports tests, the 2014 Venza stops a few feet shorter than the 2014 Crosstour from high speeds. This means that its brakes may act more responsively on the road.

  • The Venza offers 6.6 extra feet of passenger volume in comparison to the Crosstour.

  • The new Toyota wagon comes with standard dual zone air conditioning, which offers drivers and front passengers more control of their temperature settings.

At Greg May Honda, we think the 2014 Crosstour comes with more noteworthy advantages than competitors like the 2014 Venza. If you're interested in the Crosstour, we hope you'll set up a time for a test drive with us!

Here are some of the 2015 Honda Fit's unique advantages:

2014 Toyota Highlander vs. 2014 Honda Pilot in Waco

 

Wading through the sea of SUV options in Waco? You may be wondering how the 2014 Toyota Highlander and 2014 Honda Pilot compare. Greg May Honda wants to give you an overview of the distinct benefits offered by each of these SUVs. Here's what you need to know:   

2014 Honda Pilot Benefits  

  • The Pilot offers comfort the Highlander just can't match. With standard dual zone air conditioning, 8.7 cubic feet more passenger volume, and active noise cancellation, the Pilot is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the open road.

  • The new Pilot's towing capacity is 500 pounds more than the Highlander's (2000 lbs. vs. 1500 lbs.).

  • With the seats folded down, the Pilot offers a total of 87 cubic feet of cargo space. The Highlander only offers 78.6 feet.

  • For better control on all terrains, the Pilot uses front and rear gas-charged shocks. The Highlander, on the other hand, doesn't come with gas charged shocks.

  • The new Honda SUV has 3.8 more gallons of fuel capacity than its Toyota rival.

  • The new Pilot's turning radius is .8 feet tighter than the Highlander's.

  • An engine control system, which shuts down engine cylinders on easy rides, helps the Pilot conserve gas. The Highlander's engine doesn't offer the same fuel conservation abilities.

  2014 Toyota Highlander Benefits 

  • The 2014 Highlander has larger tires than the 2014 Pilot, which enables the vehicle to better control its traction.

  • Some passengers may find themselves more comfortable in the Highlander because its second and third row seats recline. The Pilot's second and third row seats can only stay upright.

  • Select Highlander models come with a lane departure warning system and blind spot warning system, which enhance the safety of occupants.

  • The Highlander is equipped with 6-speed automatic transmission, which some car owners may prefer the Pilot's 5-speed automatic transmission.

At Greg May Honda, we think the 2014 Toyota Highlander gives the 2014 Honda Pilot a run for its money, but it doesn't quite match up to its Honda competitor. We hope you'll learn more about the new Pilot and consider scheduling a test drive with us!

5 Things to Know About the 2014 CR-V in Waco

 

2014 Honda CR-V

The CR-V craze won't be over for years to come. Why? Each year, Honda improves their flagship crossover while sticking with features that work. If you want to know more about the 2014 CR-V, Greg May Honda is here with the details! Here are five things to know about the 2014 CR-V in Waco:

1. The 2014 CR-V isn't overlooked at award ceremonies.

U.S. News and World Report named the 2014 CR-V #1 in the affordable compact SUV class. Edmunds named the CR-V the Best Five-Passenger SUV You Can Buy, and Kelley Blue Book listed the CR-V as one of the best cars for families.

2. The new crossover's engine is more impressive than ever before.

The 2014 CR-V comes with a 2.4-liter, DOHC i-VTEC, 4-cylinder engine that produces 185 horsepower and 162 lbs.-ft. of torque. It's the mightiest CR-V engine to ever grace the road with its presence, and drivers are able to feel its extra power.

3. It's built with smart performance features.  

The experience of driving the 2014 CR-V is enhanced by features like grade logic control, which automatically shifts the CR-V to the best gear for better performance, as well as a drive-by-wire throttle system, which increases the CR-V's responsiveness to driver commands.

4. The new CR-V excels in the safety department.

You can't go wrong with daytime running lights, a tire pressure monitoring system, a LATCH mounting system for kids' car seats, anti-lock brakes, vehicle stability assist, airbags that can detect the weight of passengers, and traction control. The CR-V is, without a doubt, a safety leader.

5. The SUV's wired for superb wireless connectivity. 

Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, Bluetooth streaming audio capabilities, and steering wheel-mounted controls are standard features in every CR-V. These features allow drivers to hook their smartphones up to the vehicle's audio system and make phone calls, access audio translations of texts, and flip through Pandora stations right from their steering wheels.
