Your 2015 Honda Accord V6 Options
Unlike most mid-size sedans available to Central Illinois Honda Dealers, the 2015 Honda Accord comes with a V6 engine option alongside its standard four-cylinder offering, and if you’re looking for a high-powered alternative on your mid-size sedan or coupe, it should certainly do the trick.
But what’s the difference between the Accord V6 and four-cylinder, and is it worth the drop in fuel economy for the added power?
Upgrading to the 3.5L V6
Obviously if you’re looking at the 3.5L V6 on the 2015 Accord, you’re looking for a car with more power, and you’re going to get it.
- The 2015 Accord’s four-cylinder engine is rated at 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque, specs that aren’t bad at all for a mid-size sedan.
- Upgrading to the 2015 Accord V6 raises the power output to 278 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque. That’s more powerful than many family-sized SUVs and minivans.
Now, we know what you’re thinking: “How much do I have to sacrifice to get that kind of fuel economy?” The truth is that you’ll likely barely notice the difference in fuel efficiencies between the two vehicles:
- 2015 Accord LX models with a CVT earn an EPA-estimated 36 highway mpg and 27 city mpg.*
- The 2015 Accord EX-L V6 and Touring Sedans, on the other hand, have a six-speed automatic transmission and earn an EPA-estimated 34 highway mpg and 21 city mpg.*
We think that’s a small price to pay to be able to have a high-powered mid-size sedan in your garage, don’t you? Did we mention that each Accord V6 model comes with leather upholstery, heated front seating, and some of the latest in automotive convenience and safety technologies? That’s just another benefit of the EX-L and Touring trim levels.
