Honda Wants You To Dream And Do With Two New CR-V Adventure Builds

Honda brings two custom built 2020 CR-V models to SEMA. See what the fully accessorized models bring for outdoor enthusiasts.


Honda is getting on the adventure bandwagon and brings two new 2020 CR-V SUVs to the SEMA 2019 show for outdoor enthusiasts to get away from civilization. American Honda is celebrating its 60th anniversary in the U.S., and the hot-selling CR-V takes center stage.

Honda brings the gas model and the all-new 2020 CR-V Hybrid to the show both fully customized with outdoor gear. The adventure outdoor theme is new for Honda and it’s a big market they would like to tap into. Honda has the new rugged Passport, and they want to see if the two accessorized CR-V models are a hit with SEMA fans.

2020 Honda CR-V “Dream” Build

Honda brings a 2020 CR-V “Dream” Build by Jsport Performance Accessories for outdoor enthusiasts. It’s designed for a younger generation with active lifestyles who use their small SUV to get away from civilization on the weekends. The CR-V comes equipped with a multitude of outdoor gear accessories. 

Modifications include a 1.5-inch lift kit, side steps, front bumper, rear tire gate, and Plateau modular roof rack from Jsport, 17-inch KMC off-road wheels with Nitto Ridge Grappler all-terrain tires, and a Roofnest Falcon clamshell-style rooftop tent. The cargo area has been up-fitted with an organization cabinet and a slide-out refrigerator.

2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid “Do” Build

The second adventure CR-V Honda brings to SEMA is its new Hybrid model also outfitted with goodies from Jsport Performance Accessories. Honda says it's designed for “weekend warriors” looking for a versatile vehicle that will transport them and their gear to the nearest trailhead, “while retaining the everyday practicality that the CR-V provides.”

The 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid “Do” Build comes fitted with a 1.5-inch lift kit, side steps, and roof basket from Jsport, 17-inch KMC off-road wheels with Nitto Terra Grappler all-terrain tires, and a Cannondale mountain bike mounted to the roof basket.

We like the direction Honda is going with the 2020 CR-V SUV. These will appeal to a generation of consumers with active lifestyles. The Japanese automaker should take the show vehicles and bring them as production models for its U.S. customers.

Adding accessories and graphics does not an "adventure" CR-V make. It really could use some sort of two-speed transfer case (mine struggles on some of the unpaved roads I have taken it on) and a return to a traditional automatic or Honda's dual clutch transmission...or even a manual. Beefier suspension components and axles would be welcome along with that lift kit also. It can't replace the capabilities of a 4Runner, now would it be for hard core offroading, but a CR-V could be capable of some mild offroading if there were a more rugged option available. And at that point, might as well get a Passport that has usable V6 power, not an anemic 1.5L turbo...
