Honda CRV makes a good truck subsitute.
By utahcrver on
2014 Honda CR-V LX 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
I was originally looking for a small truck to replace my 2000 Xterra. But the gas mileage was not to my liking. I them started looking at some of the smaller SUV' s I settled on the Honda CRV for my needs. I pull a small utility trailer for my business and never pull more than 1000 lbs. The 2.4 liter engine is powerful enough for my needs, I still can get over 30 mpg pulling my small
trailer. I just finished taking a 1200 mile road trip.
And using the ecomode got 34.9 mpg. Ride quality, handling and comfort were great.
My favorite features are as follows. Higher seating position. No wheel well protruding into the foot areas. I now have hands free Bluetooth and love it. I got the base LX model, but there a lot of good features that come with it.
Not much in the way of improvement that I can think of.
