Scott Robinson Honda Confirms, Honda Earth Dreams™ Engines Named Among Ward’s 10 Best Engines for 2013

4-cylinder and V-6 engines from all-new 2013 Accord honored


WEBWIRE – Thursday, December 13, 2012

Scott Robinson Honda is excited to confirm, Two Honda Earth Dreams™ Technology engines powering the all-new 2013 Honda Accord were named to Ward’s 10 Best Engines list for 2013. Nearly every 2013 Accord on sale in the United States is equipped with one of the honored engines; the direct-injected 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine and the 3.5-liter V6 engine equipped with Variable Cylinder Management (VCM).

Now in its 19th year, the Ward’s 10 Best Engines competition is designed to recognize powertrains that set new benchmarks in their respective vehicle segments. To be eligible, an engine must be all-new or significantly improved and be available in a production vehicle that will be on sale by first-quarter 2013. To keep the competition in the realm of mainstream vehicles, base price is capped at $55,000.

Honda “Earth Dreams Technology™” is a next generation set of technological advancements which greatly enhance both driving performance and fuel efficiency, using, as its base, advanced environmental technologies to pursue the joy of driving unique to Honda.

The new direct-injected 2.4-liter i-VTEC in-line 4-cylinder powerplant is the standard Accord engine. Offering 185 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque, this engine delivers 4-percent more horsepower and 12-percent more torque compared to its predecessor, while operating on regular unleaded fuel and meeting the strict PZEV and ULEV-2 emissions standards. With its high-flow exhaust system, the Accord Sport Sedan 4-cylinder engine generates 189 horsepower and 182 lb-ft of torque.

In the 2013 Accord sedan, the V-6 engine is paired with a new 6-speed automatic transmission with Grade Logic Control. More compact and efficient than the 5-speed automatic transmission it replaces, the 6-speed automatic significantly improves both acceleration and fuel efficiency.
