Leave it to Honda to challenge preconceived notions of what the stereotypical pickup truck should be. At the 2016 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, the automaker revealed its latest innovation: the all-new 2017 Honda Ridgeline pickup. Completely redone for the 2017 model year, the midsized truck features the largest interior space and most versatile bed in its segment. Plus, its dynamic powertrain promises spirited performance alongside an outstanding fuel economy rating.
It’s no secret that the vehicles we offer at our Honda dealership near Wilmington, DE, are among the best on the market. Time and time again, Honda is honored with prestigious industry accolades proving its vehicles’ style, smarts, reliability, eco-friendliness and much more. Now, Honda is adding two more awards to its trophy case as the end of the year nears.
When Honda released its new 2016 Civic back in September, it was praised for its dynamic new style, muscular appearance and litany of state-of-the-art technology features. Now it’s being honored by AutoGuide.com as the winner of its 2016 Car of the Year Award.* While the Civic has always been an intelligent choice for compact-car buyers on a budget, this latest iteration is more impressive than ever with its upscale look and available 1.5-liter engine. It was also the first compact car on the market to incorporate both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, making it a leader in the industry and on the road.
While the Civic continues its long tradition of dominating the compact car segment, Honda also did quite well for itself with its latest foray into the world of crossovers. The new-for-2016 Honda HR-V was named a finalist for Green Car Journal’s Green SUV of the Year Award.** This accolade recognizes the HR-V for its outstanding environmental performance, specifically its top fuel economy rating of 35 highway mpg.** With its spacious interior, spirited driving dynamics and sporty good looks, the Honda HR-V is the perfect alternative to larger SUVs with lower fuel economies.
Curious to see what all the fuss is about? Just come down to Price Honda to check out these two new vehicles for yourself. Schedule a test-drive in the 2016 Honda Civic, the new 2016 Honda HR-V or both today!

Honda has always been ahead of the game when it comes to efficiency, and its lineup of crossovers is no exception. That’s why it was so exciting that Honda brought back the hybrid CR-Z! After a long year of waiting for its redesign and release, the 2016 Honda CR-Z Hybrid has once again gone on sale in the U.S.
There’s an all-new Honda Civic on the block, and it made its smashing debut earlier this month at YouTube Studios in Los Angeles. Promising to be the most dynamic, most technologically advanced and most refined Civic brought to market yet, the newest iteration of this old favorite is slated to hit the streets this fall.
Dynamically styled with a more athletic stance and low, wide proportions, the new 2016 Honda Civic has a muscular feel to it that is further accentuated with clean bodylines and sharp wheel arches, while available LED headlights and taillights add some extra-bright stylistic elements. But a sporty compact sedan as such is nothing without a spirited powertrain to match its dramatic look. The 2016 Civic features two all-new engine options, including Honda’s first turbo engine offered in the U.S. The 1.5-liter, direct-injection turbocharged inline-4 powerplant is also expected to return 40 mpg, making it as fun as it is practical. Even if you go for the base engine, you’ll have plenty of power to play with; the 2.0-liter i-VTEC 4-Cylinder engine is the most powerful base engine ever offered on a non-Si Civic in the U.S.
Inside, Honda filled its new Civic to the brim with modern technology galore. Added innovations throughout make for a simpler, more personalized driving experience. Like its sister sedan, the 2016 Honda Accord, the 2016 Honda Civic will offer both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for seamless smartphone integration. Users will be able to get directions, make calls and hear their text messages read aloud right from the incorporated touchscreen. Additionally, the Honda Sensing suite of advanced safety technologies is an available option. The suite of driver-assistive features includes Collision Mitigation Braking, Road Departure Mitigation and Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow.
Be on the lookout for more news and information about the 2016 Honda Civic as it becomes available! In the meantime, browse our selection of other new Honda models at our Dover dealership.
Honda is known for its litany of award-winning models, and the automaker’s latest iteration of the midsized Pilot SUV is no exception. The completely redesigned 2016 Honda Pilot just earned a 2015 TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the IIHS, and we couldn’t be more thrilled. At our Honda dealership near Easton, MD, our goal is to keep our valued clients safe on the road at all times, and we know that there are no better vehicles to do so than our outstanding Honda models. The all-new Honda Pilot is just one of our excellent choices, and a perfect option when you’re trying to find something fit for the whole family.
The 2016 Honda Pilot passed all five of its IIHS crash tests with flying colors, earning a top rating of GOOD in all five categories, including Moderate Overlap Front, Side, Roof Strength, Head Restraints and Seats as well as the notoriously difficult Small Overlap Front. To earn the coveted TOP SAFETY PICK+ title, though, it also had to excel in its Front Crash Prevention test. The TOP SAFETY PICK+ designation is reserved only for those vehicles that have an available front crash prevention system that ranks as either advanced or superior in the IIHS’ eyes, and we’re excited to say that the 2016 Honda Pilot does. It received a rating of “superior,” the highest rating available in this category.
With this outstanding achievement, Honda is one step closer to its goal of creating a three-row mainstream SUV with the highest available government and safety ratings. Not only is the Pilot the most technologically advanced Honda vehicle you’ll find on Delaware’s roadways, but it’s filled with a host of state-of-the-art safety features. Its available Honda Sensing package offers a suite of driver-assistive technologies that improve situational awareness and help prevent collisions before they can occur. These technologies include the Collision Mitigation Braking System with Forward Collision Warning, Lane Keeping Assist System, Adaptive Cruise Control Lane Departure Warning and Road Departure Mitigation. Plus, a rearview camera comes standard on each model.
See what makes the 2016 Honda Pilot so extraordinary when your buy or lease your own at our Dover Honda dealership!
It’s a big month over at Honda, as the automaker opened its brand-new Silicon Valley R&D facility where its team will work to create innovative technological advances to incorporate into its award-winning lineup. While Honda’s higher-ups have confirmed that the Silicon Valley facility will focus on innovation and collaboration, its team will also work toward exploring new applications for connected mobility. To mark this special occasion, Honda took the opportunity to unveil its most technologically advanced Accord yet.
The eagerly anticipated 2016 Honda Accord features many technological boons but, most importantly, it’s one of the first cars on the market to offer both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The incorporation of these two platforms will allow Honda drivers to seamlessly connect their mobile phones with their cars, no matter which type of device they prefer. Users will be able to intuitively swipe, tap and pinch their 7-inch Display Audio touchscreens to control the Accord’s sound system, display settings and more. The Display Audio touchscreen is set to come standard on EX trims and above, and can also include HondaLink Assist and HD Radio capabilities, placing additional tech right at your fingertips.
Besides the innovative entertainment amenities the new Accord will offer, drivers will also have the power to add on the Honda Sensing suite of driver-assistive technologies. Intelligently engineered to protect you and your passengers, the Honda Sensing suite includes a Collision Mitigation Braking System with Forward Collision Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, Road Departure Mitigation with Lane Departure Warning and Adaptive Cruise Control.
We’re excited about all the modern tech advances that the latest iteration of the best-selling Accord will offer. It’s expected to arrive at our Honda dealership near Salisbury, MD, within the month, so stay tuned to find out when you can see it in person!

They say great things improve with age, and Honda’s cars are no exception. Over the past 40-plus years, Honda has released nine generations of its best-selling Civic. Some have been more stylish, some have been sportier and some have focused on efficiency. But now, Honda is releasing its 10th-generation Civic for the 2016 model year, and it’s completely unique from every one of its predecessors.
Honda debuted the new 2016 Civic at the New York International Auto Show earlier this month, and it’s absolutely stunning. With its refreshingly sporty design and incredible powertrain offerings, it promises to be the most fun-to-drive Honda Civic yet. A longer wheelbase and hood along with a lower, wider stance and 20-inch wheels give it new flair, while its spirited performance will make it an all-around exhilarating ride.
“The new Civic will be, flat out, the most dynamic, the most technologically advanced and the most refined and stylish Civic we’ve ever made,” said John Mendel, executive vice president, Automobile Division, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. in a release. “In every way, this will be an epic Civic.”
The new Civic lineup will include the coupe and sedan models you already know and love, and will bring back the 5-door hatchback version. Plus, for those who want an even more spirited performance, the Si and Type-R versions will be available. Each model is set to exceed benchmark levels of efficiency, dynamic performance and safety. For the first time, a new 1.5-liter VTECH Turbo engine with direct injection will be offered. Drivers also have the choice of pairing their engine with a short-shifting 6-speed manual transmission or a more-eco-friendly-than-ever-before CVT.
