A More Rugged 2021 Honda Ridgeline Revealed

2021 Honda Ridgeline | Vallejo, CA | Avery Greene Honda

The 2021 Honda Ridgeline is bringing even more rugged good looks to the pickup truck segment. This truck has undergone a redesign for its newest model year, building on its reputation for capability and convenience.

With more sculpted lines and a wider stance, the 2021 Ridgeline looks like it’s ready to hit the trail. Better yet, it has a payload towing rating of 3,500 pounds for FWD models and 5,000 pounds for AWD models, which means you can easily take your boat, trailer, and other gear with you on your next adventure. Add its responsive steering and improved ride quality, and it will likely feel as if you’re driving a smaller vehicle when you’re behind the wheel.

In the truck bed, there have been a range of improvements. For instance, the tailgate opens like a traditional tailgate or sideways for easy access to the truck bed. There’s 50 inches separating the rear wheel wells in the bed, making the Ridgeline the only truck in its class that can accommodate 4-by-8-foot building materials flat on the floor. It even has a locking, weather-proof bed trunk that can store up to 7.3 cubic feet of gear for valuables and more.

Inside, the Ridgeline combines high-quality materials and comfort to make the Ridgeline a solid option for your commute through Vallejo, California. It has a standard eight-inch touchscreen display, Apple CarPlay®, and Android Auto™. It also has 60/40 split-folding rear seats that allow you to fold them down to fit even more cargo, including a full-size bike.

The 2021 Honda Ridgeline is available now, so stop into Avery Greene Honda for a test drive.

2022 Honda Civic Prototype | Avery Greene Honda | Vallejo, CA

The Honda Civic is bringing a whole new style for the 2022 model year. Honda recently revealed the all-new 2022 Honda Civic on Twitch, and it will boast a full redesign both inside and out, along with even more innovative technologies.

This 11th-generation Civic is built around the vehicle’s legacy, bringing classic elements to the design. It will have a low, wide stance, bold details, a low beltline, and an open and airy cabin.

On the inside, the unclutter lines of earlier Civic generations remain, creating a sophisticated, yet exciting look that brings a warm, welcome feeling to the cabin. The 2022 Civic uses minimal cut lines and breaks to give the driver a clear view of the road ahead, while the width of the dash is highlighted with a honeycomb mesh accent. These conceal the air vents, keeping the dash design from looking too busy.

With this all-new model, you will also receive some new Civic-first technologies. This includes a digital dash for important driving information like your speed and a new 9-inch touch-screen display.

For the newest model year, the Civic will also come outfitted with the most up-to-date advanced driver-assistance features available. These safety features include an upgraded Honda Sensing® suite and new airbag designs, so you can feel more confident as you drive around Vallejo, California.

The all-new 2022 Honda Civic will go on sale in the late spring of 2021. If you want to be one of the first to cruise around Vallejo in the all-new Civic, contact the team at Avery Greene Honda.

New Honda Brand Campaign Goes Rugged

Honda Ridgeline | Vallejo, CA | Avery Greene Honda

When you think “rugged,” you might not automatically think of Honda. The brand is looking to change that, though, with its newest brand campaign.

A new Honda brand campaign focuses on the bold capability that each of the Honda SUVs and truck has to offer. The first spot in the campaign focuses on the 2021 Passport and Pilot, including the Pilot Special Edition. It focuses on their on- and off-road capability, while also giving consumers a glimpse of the redesigned 2021 Ridgeline.

“Honda SUVs and trucks have always had excellent on-road manners and surprising off-road capabilities,” said Jay Joseph, vice president of Automobile Marketing, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “In a truck-trending market, we will showcase Honda SUVs and our pickup in environments that display the capabilities hidden beneath their sleek exteriors, demonstrating they can face most any challenge en route to that next great adventure.”

The new commercials are also the debut of the Honda brand’s new voice — actor and WWE superstar, John Cena. Cena’s voice will be used across all of the marketing for Honda cars and light trucks.

“I’m looking forward to this new relationship with Honda because I’ve always been a big fan of Honda products, and how deeply involved they are in the community,” said Cena.

Each model of the brand’s award-winning light truck lineup will appear in this new multi-channel brand campaign. It will also show off the company’s off-road powersports products, such as the Honda Talon sport side-by-side.

If you’re interested in learning more about this new campaign – and checking out the 2021 Honda lineup’s ruggedness for yourself — stop into Avery Greene Honda in Vallejo, California.

How to Transport a Christmas Tree

How to Transport a Christmas Tree | Vallejo, CA | Avery Greene Honda

There’s nothing that says it’s the holidays quite like a live tree strung with bright lights and with presents nestled underneath it. If you’re planning on heading out to a tree farm in Vallejo this year, though, it’s important that you know how to transport a Christmas tree home safely. These are the tips you should keep in mind when you pick up your tree.

Have the right vehicle. Before you get your tree, make sure you have the right vehicle. A truck like the Toyota Tacoma or a SUV like the Toyota Highlander are solid options, though any vehicle that has a roof rack is good.

Bring the correct tools with you. You will need the right tools to keep the tree on the roof, since it needs to be extremely secure — especially if you’re traveling at high speeds on a California highway. The right supplies include nylon ratchet straps and a blanket to put under the tree so you can protect your vehicle’s paint job. You should also make sure that your tree is bagged or netted before you load it up on the roof.

Position it properly. When you place the tree on the top of your roof, make sure that the tree’s trunk is facing the front of your vehicle. This makes it more aerodynamic and less likely to fly off the vehicle. You should anchor it to the car right above the bottom branches and towards the top of the tree, too.

Once you know how to transport a Christmas tree, you’ll be able to make spirits bright every season going forward. The team at Avery Greene Honda hopes to make your spirits bright, too, the next time you visit us for service or when you’re shopping for a new vehicle.

Tips for A Safe and Healthy Thanksgiving in 2020

Tips for a Safe Thanksgiving | Avery Greene Honda | Vallejo, CA

Thanksgiving is a time for togetherness and being thankful, but this year it might look a bit different. Because safety guidelines throughout California are constantly changing to keep everyone safe, it’s important to consider making a new tradition this year for a safe and healthy Thanksgiving 2020.

Think small. Rather than having a big feast filled with family and friends, it might be a good idea to have a small dinner with only the people who live in your household. If you truly want to have a big celebration, you can always bring everyone together virtually, sharing recipes that other usually make and eating while chatting online.

Take precautions. If the guidelines in Vallejo allow you to have people over, you should take extra precautions to ensure you all stay healthy. Consider eating outdoors and wear a mask if there are multiple people around. Also, you should wash your hands throughout the cooking process — more than you usually do — to help prevent the spread.

Understand your space. Measure the available space you have and only invite the number of people that will fit into the space while social distancing.

Avoid high-risk activities. According to the CDC, there are many high-risk activities that are common during the Thanksgiving season that should be avoided. This includes going out into crowded stores for Black Friday shopping, attending crowded parades, or taking part in a crowded race.

From everyone here at Avery Greene Honda in Vallejo, we wish you a happy, healthy, and safe Thanksgiving 2020.
