Short answer: Yes! The 2018 Honda CR-V does have all-wheel drive as an optional drivetrain. In fact, on every configuration of the Honda CR-V, you can upgrade to the AWD powertrain for your Gretna commute. This makes AWD an accessible system for drivers across the Lincoln area. Learn more about the Honda CR-V AWD system with this guide from Honda of Lincoln.

What is Real Time AWD?

The Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ is available on every configuration of the Honda CR-V. The system helps give drivers better control on the Omaha roads by:

  • Redistributes torque between the front and rear while turning, enhancing stability
  • Sends power to the rear wheels when climbing hills for better traction
  • Regains traction lost due to less-than-ideal road conditions

This AWD system gives you the confidence you need when taking trips to the Canopy Street Railyard. With this AWD system, you’ll have better traction and more control in your hands while behind the wheel of the new Honda CR-V.

Should I Choose AWD?

While this is a matter of personal preference — a preference you’d likely discover during a test drive — we highly recommend AWD drivetrains. Though driving with an AWD vehicle requires a few more stops for gas, the Honda CR-V with AWD is reliably efficient. The Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ proves itself to be a great convenience on any adventure you take — especially when the road conditions worsen due to winter weather.
