Engine Architecture and Features

2.4-liter DOHC i-VTEC Direct-Injected Inline-4 Engine
The 2.4-liter, DOHC, i-VTEC® + VTC direct-injected (DI) inline-4 in a CR-V LX is carried over from a 2016 model. This engine is designed to work on Regular Unleaded fuel and is rated during 184 horsepower during 6,400 rpm. Peak torque outlay is 180 lb.-ft. during 3,900 rpm.

2.4-liter engine

Cylinder Block and Crankshaft

The CR-V LX’s 2.4-liter engine has a lightweight die-cast aluminum cylinder retard with a main-bearing singular cradle pattern that creates a firm public to assistance minimize sound and vibration. Cast-in iron cylinder liners yield long-lasting durability. Each biography on a forged-steel crankshaft is micro-polished to revoke middle friction. To urge fibre around a rpm operation and assistance revoke sound levels, a engine is propitious with an middle balancer unit. Consisting of a span of chain-driven counter-rotating shafts located in a oil pan, a balancing complement helps relieve a fundamental second-order harmonic vibrations that routinely impact inline 4-cylinder engines.

To revoke piston-sliding friction, a cylinder bores are equivalent by 8.0 mm from a crankshaft. This gives a joining rods a some-more auspicious angle during any appetite stroke, that reduces side loading on a pistons and in turn, improves efficiency. The engine also facilities a fake crankshaft for high acerbity and low friction. With 4 smaller-diameter counterweights and 4 larger-diameter counterweights, a crankshaft offers optimized flywheel outcome while minimizing sum weight.

Pistons and Connecting Rods 

Lightweight pistons have a delicately optimized dress pattern to minimize reciprocating mass, and reduced weight minimizes quivering and increases handling efficiency. The piston crowns are dished to assistance say fast explosion and to optimize placement of a stratified fuel assign from a approach injector in any cylinder. This tighten control over a explosion routine boosts altogether handling efficiency. Lightweight, high-strength steel joining rods are heat-forged in one square and afterwards “crack separated” to emanate a lighter and stronger rod with an optimally propitious temperament cap.

Cylinder Head and Valvetrain

A lightweight cylinder conduct done of pressure-cast aluminum amalgamate uses front-located empty ports that yield larger leisure in a blueprint of a close-coupled catalytic converter that mounts directly to a cylinder head. With empty passages expel directly into a cylinder head, a need for a normal apart empty plural is eliminated.

A silent-chain drives twin beyond cams and 4 valves per cylinder, and facilities a double-arm tensioner pattern that reduces handling friction. The cam expostulate is designed to be upkeep giveaway around a life of a engine. To serve revoke friction, a finish of a camshaft journals has been improved.

The explosion cover figure and valve angles have been optimized to boost fuel potency and power. The engine facilities an enclosed valve angle of 35 degrees, a slight valve angle that decreases a surface-to-volume ratio and helps emanate a flatter, some-more compress explosion cover that reduces unburned hydrocarbon emissions.

The cylinder conduct facilities a high-tumble intake-port design. In multiple with a explosion cover and piston climax shape, a design’s high spin of airflow decrease helps emanate a homogenous fuel rebate for low fuel expenditure and high airflow for high appetite output.

Turbocharged 1.5-liter DOHC Direct-Injected Inline-4 Engine

For a initial time ever, a CR-V is offering with a turbocharged 1.5-liter DOHC Direct-Injected inline-4 engine. Closely associated to a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine offering in a 10th-generation Honda Civic, a CR-V’s 1.5-liter engine is customary on EX, EX-L and Touring trims. The CR-V’s 1.5-liter turbocharged engine has pivotal enhancements that assistance it rise some-more horsepower and torque than in a 2016 Civic. With rise outlay of 190 horsepower and 179 lb.-ft. of torque, this CR-V is a many absolute prolongation instance of this engine family to date. By comparison, a Civic Sedan’s 1.5-liter turbocharged engine is rated during 174 horsepower and 162 lb.-ft. of torque.

Several facilities mix to emanate a CR-V 1.5-liter turbo’s increasing opening compared to Civic models that are powered by this same engine family. A rebate in application ratio combines with a aloft limit turbo boost vigour – done probable by a new turbocharger impeller pattern and some-more teeming intake and empty systems – to net a estimable advantage in horsepower and torque.

1.5-liter turbocharged engine

Cylinder Block and Crankshaft

The 1.5-liter turbocharged inline 4 has a lightweight die-cast aluminum retard with particular reinforced categorical temperament caps to minimize weight. Cast-in iron cylinder liners yield long-lasting durability. Each biography on a lightweight forged-steel crankshaft is micropolished to revoke middle friction.

Pistons and Connecting Rods 

Like a Civic models that are powered by this same engine family, a CR-V’s 1.5-liter engine’s pistons have “cavity-shaped” crowns that assistance say fast explosion and minister to softened efficiency. With a high appetite output, a reshaped piston crowns in a CR-V revoke a application ratio from 10.6:1 to 10.3:1, to concede a engine to work good during a aloft limit boost pressure. The lightweight pistons have a delicately optimized dress pattern to minimize reciprocating weight, that minimizes quivering and increases handling efficiency. The pistons are cooled by twin oil jets destined during a underside of any piston crown. Special cooling channels in a CR-V’s pistons also assistance keep handling temperatures in check. Ion-plated piston rings assistance revoke attrition for larger handling efficiency. Lightweight, high-strength steel joining rods are heat-forged in one square and afterwards “crack separated” to emanate a lighter and stronger rod with an optimally propitious temperament cap.

Cylinder Head and Valvetrain

The direct-injected 4-cylinder turbocharged engine has a lightweight pressure-cast aluminum amalgamate DOHC cylinder head. With empty ports expel directly into a cylinder head, a need for a normal apart empty plural is eliminated.

A low-friction, silent-chain drives twin beyond cams and 4 valves per cylinder. The cam expostulate is upkeep giveaway around a life of a engine. To assistance serve revoke weight, new thin-wall vale camshafts are used.

To advantage fuel efficiency, emissions and power, a turbo engine utilizes sodium-filled empty valves. A vale cover within a valve contains sodium that is cooled by a empty pier cooling jacket. As a cover reaches tighten to a valve head, a sodium helps to cold a whole valve. Since a valve is internally cooled it doesn’t need a enriched fuel rebate that is generally used in turbo engines to assistance cold a empty valve. The following leaner rebate reduces emissions, increases fuel potency and helps boost power.

The cylinder conduct includes tiny M12 sparkplugs, down from a some-more common M14, to save space and weight. The conduct also includes direct-injection multi-hole fuel injectors with a small-diameter bore. Higher-pressure approach injection optimizes fuel atomization, permitting for some-more fit combustion. To yield a high-tumble intake assign that serve enhances explosion efficiency, both a intake pier and piston climax have special designs.

The CR-V turbo engine facilities twin Variable Timing Control (VTC) that can change a timing of both a intake and empty camshafts independently. With a turbo engine’s non-static cam timing, a cam timing can be optimized to fit a pushing conditions. Under light loads, valve overlie can be increasing to revoke pumping waste and urge fuel efficiency. When engine speed is low and engine bucket is large, such as during initial acceleration, a volume of overlie is increasing to boost a scavenging effect, that improves torque and responsiveness. When engine speed is high and engine bucket is also high, such as during full-throttle acceleration, a volume of valve overlie is reduced to boost engine output.

Low Inertia Mono Scroll Turbo System with Electric Wastegate

The turbocharged CR-V engine employs a small-diameter, low-mass turbine for limit responsiveness. The mono corkscrew housing pattern helps a turbo build boost even during comparatively tiny stifle openings and low rpm. The electrically actuated wastegate allows boost vigour to be precisely controlled. Unique to a CR-V, a new, reshaped 9-blade turbine impeller takes a place of a 11-blade impeller used in Civic models that are powered by this same engine family.

Designed to work on Regular Unleaded fuel, a engine’s limit boost vigour is set during 18.5 psi., adult from a limit of 16.5 psi in Civic turbocharged models.

A vast low-restriction intercooler is positioned low in a front of a car where it receives unrestricted airflow when a car is in motion. Intake atmosphere travels from a atmosphere filter, to a turbo compressor, on to a intercooler, afterwards to a engine’s intake ports. The intercooler helps revoke a heat of atmosphere entering a engine, creation it denser for larger performance. To revoke weight, a turbo complement is plumbed with rigid, lightweight creosote combination estuary pipes to lift intake atmosphere to and from a intercooler. Compared to a identical initiation complement used in a Civic, a CR-V initiation complement has a 4-percent alleviation in flow, contributing to larger appetite outlay in a CR-V.

Common Engine Features

Direct Injection System

The engine’s direct-injection complement enables increasing torque opposite a engine’s full handling operation along with aloft fuel potency and low emissions. A multi-hole injector delivers fuel directly into any cylinder (not to a intake port, as in compulsory pier fuel injection designs), permitting for some-more fit combustion. The complement facilities a compact, high-pressure, direct-injection siphon that allows both high fuel upsurge and tapping suppression, while non-static vigour control optimizes injector operation.

ECON Mode

Every 2017 CR-V is versed with a immature ECON symbol located on a core console nearby a change lever. Activating ECON mode helps urge fuel potency by modifying stifle mapping and HVAC operation. The Drive-by-Wire stifle complement provides some-more light response, and to save additional energy, a meridian control’s fan speeds are lowered incrementally and other meridian control complement characteristics are altered formed on a conditions.

Friction Reducing Technology

All CR-V engines make use of friction-reducing technologies designed to urge engine efficiency:

  • The outdoor skirts of a lightweight aluminum pistons underline a low-friction molybdenum cloaking practical in a dot pattern 
  • Plateau honing of a cylinder walls removes little high points to serve revoke attrition while improving a long-term wear characteristics of a engine.  
  • Low flexibility oil (0W-20)  
  • Other contributors to altogether handling potency are a special 2-stage oil siphon use valve, low-friction oil seals, special low-drag piston ring design, low-friction cam sequence and a lightweight crankshaft. 

Drive-by-Wire Throttle System

The CR-V ‘s Drive-by-Wire stifle complement replaces a compulsory stifle wire with intelligent wiring that “connect” a accelerator pedal to a stifle valve inside a stifle body. The outcome is reduction under-hood confusion and revoke weight, as good as quicker and some-more accurate stifle actuation. Plus, a specifically involuntary “gain” rate between a stifle pedal and engine offers softened drivability and optimized engine response to fit specific pushing conditions.

Exhaust System

All CR-V trims use a single-pipe empty complement for light weight and simplicity. CR-V models that are powered with a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine have a special hi-flow empty complement with twin empty outlets.

100,000+/- Mile Tune-up Intervals

Both CR-V powerplants need no scheduled upkeep for 100,000+/- miles or more, other than periodic inspections and normal liquid and filter replacements. The initial tune-up includes H2O siphon inspection, valve adjustment, and a designation of new hint plugs.

Maintenance Minder™ System

To discharge nonessential use stops while ensuring that a car is scrupulously maintained, a CR-V has a Maintenance Minder™ complement that ceaselessly monitors a vehicle’s handling condition. When upkeep is required, a motorist is alerted around a summary on a Multi-Information Display (MID) on a LX trim or Driver Information Interface (DII) on all other trims. (See a Interior territory for some-more information.)

The Maintenance Minder™ complement monitors handling conditions such as oil and coolant heat along with engine speed to establish a scold use intervals. Depending on handling conditions, oil change intervals can be extended to a limit of 10,000 miles, potentially provident a owners substantial responsibility and nuisance over a life of a vehicle. The owner-resettable complement monitors all normal use tools and systems, including oil and filter, tire rotation, air-cleaner, delivery fluid, hint plugs, coolant, stop pads and more. To revoke a intensity for motorist distraction, upkeep alerts are presented usually when a ignition is initial incited on, not while driving.

Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT)

The CR-V ‘s customary Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) offers well-spoken and predicted rigging ratio transitions and glorious acceleration matched with fit low-rpm cruising. The CVT is comprised of an engine-driven torque converter that in spin drives 2 variable-width crane connected by a steel belt. With a pointed middle faces, a belt can round a pointed pulley faces during varying hole depending on a pulley width, that alters a effective ratio between a pulleys. Since there are no stairs in a pulley faces, a operation of probable rigging ratios is radically infinite. This ultrafine control of a rigging ratio is a pivotal to a CVT’s larger potency over a compulsory involuntary delivery with a singular series of dissimilar rigging ratios. Instead of approximating a scold ratio for a conditions like a compulsory involuntary does, a CVT can precisely name a best ratio from impulse to impulse but stairs or slippage. Computer control of a delivery allows a ratio between a crane to be altered roughly now to best fit a pushing conditions and accelerator pedal setting.

Continuously non-static delivery (CVT)

The CR-V’s CVT delivery is an expansion of a CVT that is offering in Accord 4-cylinder models, a 2016 CR-V and turbocharged variants of a 2016 Civic. There are name differences in a CVT, depending on that CR-V engine it is interconnected with. As in a Civic, a turbine twin-damper pattern for a torque converter provides parsimonious control and helps lessen turbo loiter in models with a 1.5-liter engine. The delivery also incorporates refinements to a jail purchase check and torque converter when interconnected with turbocharged CR-V models to assistance well-spoken initial acceleration. Final expostulate ratios are also opposite between a 2.4-liter and 1.5-liter CR-V powertrains.

G-Design Shift Feature

The CR-V ‘s CVT is designed to yield a best rigging ratio for a pushing conditions, and to offer a some-more healthy pushing feel than some prior CVT transmissions that might have something of a away “rubber-band” feel compared to a compulsory involuntary transmission.

During full stifle acceleration, a new era of G-Design change proof employs stepped ratios as a car speed increases. This helps give a delivery a some-more “connected” feel as a engine rpm and car speed boost together. This stepped operation also improves acceleration opening incrementally.

CVT Automatic Modes

The delivery can be operated in 3 opposite entirely involuntary brazen modes with a console-mounted straight-gate shifter. The D mode is ideal for many pushing situations, and combines fuel potency with well-spoken operation and manageable appetite when needed. The S mode is for some-more performance-oriented driving, and facilities some-more assertive delivery mapping to keep engine rpm aloft for larger acceleration and response. The L mode is ideal for situations when additional engine braking is desired, such as in alpine driving.

S-Range Control

To concede a motorist to change a operation of a CVT, a console-mounted rigging selector includes an “S” or Sport mode that provides a sport-shift report that delays upshifting for some-more accessible power, and provides larger engine braking.

Continuously Variable Transmission Gear Ratios

Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System

The 2017 CR-V is offering with a updated Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™. Software and hardware upgrades outcome in an boost in engine torque (up to a sum of 40-percent) that can be sent to a back wheels, formed on a pushing conditions. The outcome is softened opening in low traction conditions when AWD comes into play.

The compress and fit Real Time AWD provides a high grade of 4-wheel-drive sophistication in rain, snow, mud roads and dry pavement. Real Time AWD offers a optimal change of assured capability and user friendship in a lightweight and fuel-efficient design. The motorist can simply step on a accelerator and let a complement maximize use of accessible hold and climbing capability. System operation is totally involuntary and probably pure in smoothness.

The capabilities of a complement are prioritized to serve support high fuel potency and all-around drivability on-road as good as off-road. Assisting a front wheels when it is beneficial, Real Time AWD now powers a back wheels when starting from a stop, even on dry pavement, operative in team-work with Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA) and a Motion-Adaptive Electric Power Steering (EPS). The Real Time AWD complement can work during all speeds when needed. When torque send to a back wheels is not required, such as when cruising, expostulate force to a back wheels is decoupled for reduced drag.

The CR-V’s all-wheel expostulate complement consists of a compulsory front-wheel-drive system, a compress send box that distributes torque by a propeller missile regulating a length of a vehicle, a back differential, an electronically-controlled hydraulic pump, a multi-plate clutch, and left and right rear-wheel driveshafts. The multi-plate purchase connects a propeller missile to a back differential and is operated by an electric engine pushing a hydraulic pump. For 2017, a limit hydraulic vigour has been increased, ensuing in a 57 percent boost in a accessible torque send to a back axle. The electric engine is tranquil by a Intelligent Control System, that means that a complement can actively dispense appetite formed on a conditions. The complement doesn’t merely conflict to front round spin; it minimizes round spin before it happens by promulgation appetite to a back wheels accordingly. For efficiency, a electric engine activating a hydraulic siphon is idled when not required, serve shortening drag within a complement and assisting to revoke appetite consumption.

When starting on sleet for example, a complement sends appetite to a back wheels right from a start, minimizing a intensity for front round spin. The complement can also detect when a CR-V is climbing a mountain and sends a larger volume of appetite to a back wheels in team-work with a Brake Hold feature. Brake Hold maintains stop vigour after a stop pedal is released, giving a motorist time to accelerate and uniformly resume motion. The Intelligent Control System now assesses a road’s slope angle regulating a G-sensor and a spin of hold as rescued by VSA permitting combined initial apportioning of torque to a back wheels for well-spoken starts.
