In 1995, the CR-V was Honda's first in-house designed SUV. Unveiled at the 1996 Chicago Auto Show, the CR-V was well-received as an attractive alternative to Toyota's RAV4. Originally introduced with a single trim level, the CR-V featured a 2.0 liter engine with 126 horsepower and a double wishbone suspension. A few years later, the CR-V received an engine makeover that gave the road-ready SUV even greater power. The second generation of the Honda CRV underwent a major facelift with an all-new exterior design, new engine and a MacPherson strut front suspension. Honda introduced its customers to luxury in a compact SUV with features like a leather interior, heated seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and heated side mirrors. The move to a more upscale interior gave Honda CRV reviews and reviewers something to talk about, as did the third generation CR-V. It possessed an updated, nuanced body style and a laundry list of convenient technological features and amenities that made the CR-V perfect for crawling about urban jungles or navigating rugged rural terrain. Vandergriff Honda has a wide assortment of new and used Honda CRV SUVs with special deals and financing options available.

Every now and then, the road gets a little steep. When it is needed, the CR-V utilizes the Grade Logic Control System. Grade Logic Control alters the 5-speed automatic's shift schedule, reducing the frequency of shifts while traveling up or downhill. Using inputs that monitor throttle position, vehicle speed, acceleration and deceleration, the Grade Logic Control system compares the operating parameters with a digital map stored in the transmission's computer. When the system determines that the Honda CRV is on a hill or other steep surface, the shift schedule is adjusted to automatically hold the transmission in a lower gear for better climbing power or increased downhill engine braking.
