    Honda teases new butched up CR-V due out Summer 2022

      All-new 2023 CR-V adopts a more rugged look.

    The CR-V took over from the Civic as Honda's best selling model in 2014 as crossover sales exploded.  The current CR-V went on sale a few years later in 2016 and further extended that growth, keeping sales over 370,000 units most years since.  In the CR-V's best year of 2019, the crossover eclipsed the Civic by about 60,000 units.

    When you've got sales like that, you generally don't mess with success.  But even with numbers like those, the CR-V comes in second in sales to the Toyota RAV-4. The RAV-4 took on a more rugged look for 2019 and Toyota's biggest problem has been keeping them in stock.  So with an eye on that success, Honda decided to pull on a pair of hiking shoes when redesigning the 2023 CR-V.

    While we don't have full details yet, the teaser shots show the new CR-V will adopt the butch looks of its big brother the Honda Passport.  We expect a carryover of the existing 1.5 liter turbo producing 190 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 179 lb-ft of torque between 2,000 and 5,000 rpm routed through a CVT.  The CR-V currently offers a hybrid option with 212 horsepower and a combined 232 lb-ft of torque.  Honda says that the hybrid system will be getting some enhancements for "a sportier driving experience and more capability".

    I'm getting very tired of scraping absolutely everything in my car and having my tail stick out when I park in a parking garage for work and have been seriously looking at a CUV. Two that I've looked at are the CRV and the RAV4. I thought the CRV needed "something extra" to sway me honestly.

    @Drew Dowdell Have to say that the look of this CR-V is good and looks very similar to the upcoming Honda Prologue EV. Cool to see that they are getting away from the generic look Honda has had for the last 3 decades.

    Well have I got the article for you.

    How come Honda always seems to come in second to Toyota in every segment both compete in?  As for the CR-V: all-new or simply an MCE?

    Honda and Toyota will frequently claim "all-new" for their vehicle, but that's a pretty squishy subject for both. They will frequently evolve their platforms enough that it gets to be called all-new. Honda is claiming "all-new" for this CR-V, but it's probably going to have the same engine and transmission, maybe slightly tweaked in some way.

    • I am not aware of travel cases for internal drives. Usually you have the drive and once you have made sure you own static electricity is discharged on your body, open the computer and unplug the power cable and data cable to the HD. Then you unscrew the screws holding the drive in. Put the drive into an Anti-Static bag and then usually into a box that has foam padding on all sides to protect the drive and then tape it up to close it.  With both drives in their proper storage bags, you can then have both drives in between foam insulation for handling any dropping of the box, etc. Pack them in a box and tape shut, should then easily handle going through your carry on or checked in luggage. To ship a hard drive, you need to: Secure the hard drive in its original packaging or anti-static bag. If you don't have an anti-static bag, place the drive into a zipped freezer bag to prevent any moisture getting into the drive during transit. Sandwich the drive between foam or wrap it in bubble wrap to absorb any minor shocks. Put the hard drive in a padded shipping box. Close and seal the box. Label your package. Amazon.com : hard drive shipping box This is pretty much all you need.
    • Either a co-pilot first time landing or something truly went wrong on the plane.
    • The incoming rectangular lamps on many GM cars in that era made them much more attractive.  They made a big difference. Now, as far the powerplant went, the notion of 500 cubic inches was mindboggling even during the malaise era.  If you want to see someone's jaw drop, tell a European that their engines have 8200 cc or 8.2 liters.  For those who aren't driving the occasional Mustang or Camaro you see, they freak out at anything over 2,500 or 3,000 cc.
    • Thank you for the response. I want to reinstall them into the computers, especially the "newer" one.  The old one has been a real champ.   The reason for not leaving them in the desktop is that the basic tower might have to be transported ... and not by me.  That means it will be out of my possession for a while.  Since the HDs would be traveling with me, they'll have to get scanned through airport security a time or two.  I'm guessing that shouldn't mess with the data.   I've already backed up the C drive on several large 1 TB portable hard drives.  I don't want to touch the basic functions and files on the computers since I don't know how that all works.  I stay away from the drives and files I am not familiar with. I tend to donate other things to charity.   I did give the Regal I once owned to charity.   A good friend told me that, about a month or two later, he saw it being driven around the city by its new owner and we had a good laugh. This is what I want to do.  I'm just trying to figure out if the guy or gal at Office Depot can size a case based on looking up the unit and the HD in it.  Any ideas on that part?  Or should I do that and approximate the size and weight of the part to get the cases?
    • I'm wondering about a lot of things related to this.  I am sure that, sadly, the passengers inside were jolted.  This is way different from a rough landing. Why was it even necessary to do it?  What was going on at the airport property at that time?  How does one even pull this off?  I've seen some vids of where they barely touch and then go off again, but this one looks way more complicated.
