Here at Key Honda of Rutland, we have a wide selection of new Honda SUVs to benefit the outdoor adventurers out there. Those of you thinking of hitting the trails of Camel's Hump or heading down to the Burlington Bike Path along Lake Champlain might wonder what outdoor gear your desired Honda SUV can handle. Honda crossovers come available in all shapes and sizes, so let us go over what each one can handle here at Key Honda of Rutland. You can find us conveniently located less than a 60-mile drive away from Lebanon.

Honda HR-V

The Honda HR-V is the most compact crossover we have, but a popular choice among outdoor adventurers. Its sleek design and high ground clearance can accommodate outdoor trails of Killington Peak, and it can hold bike racks quite easily. However, as its engine generates 141 total horsepower, the Honda HR-V is generally not recommended for towing boats.

Honda CR-V

Drivers will likely recognize the new Honda CR-V for its spacious interior and family friendliness. Its cargo area can easily accommodate outdoor gear, with roof racks and bike racks available as accessories. While the Honda CR-V offers a towing capacity of up to 1,500 lbs., it might not have the ability to accommodate boats. Make sure you verify the weight of what you carry to prevent damage to the engine or chassis.

Honda Passport

The Honda Passport stands as one of the most adventure-savvy crossovers of the Honda brand. Its engine and all-wheel-drive give the Honda Passport great off-roading capabilities, with special underfloor storage compartments for bike helmets and backpacks alike. With two-wheel-drive, the Honda Passport can tow 3,500 lbs. and with AWD, it can handle up to 5,000 lbs. of towing, making it excellent for bringing boats out to Otter Creek Gorge near Middlebury, VT.

Honda Pilot

If you seek out roomiest SUV, look no further than the three-row Honda Pilot, upon which the Honda Passport was based. As with its successor, the Honda Pilot can accommodate 3,500-5,000 lbs. of towing, making it an excellent choice for boats, jet skis, and the like.
