2015 Honda CR-V Earth Dreams
A staple of the mid-size Accord for several years, Honda’s Earth Dreams technology debuts inside the CR-V for the 2015 model year. As far an engineering emphasis is concerned, Earth Dreams works to improve thermal efficiency by reducing frictions that affect the automaker’s engine components. This is simply one facet of a comprehensive powertrain program, however.
In addition to engine efficiency, Earth Dreams also includes improvements to Honda’s transmission system. Whereas outgoing CR-V models featured a five-speed automatic gearbox, the 2015 Honda CR-V in Chicago now features an efficient continuously variable transmission. This improvement raises CR-V’s highway fuel economy returns to an EPA-estimated 34 mpg*—a welcomed mark of valuable progress when compared with 2014’s 31 highway mpg** measure.
2015 Honda CR-V Touring
Beyond the fuel economy enhancements brought about by the adoption of Earth Dreams, Honda is also using the 2015 CR-V to improve its crossover SUV safety efforts. A clear expression of this intent is seen in CR-V’s all-new Touring package. Now featuring advanced safety technologies like Collision Mitigation Braking, Lane Departure Warning and Adaptive Cruise Control, the 2015 Honda CR-V Touring represents its automaker’s most complete SUV safety option to date.
