Honda Celebrates its Fourth Decade of Producing the Accord
Since the debut of the Accord in 1976, Honda has continued to surprise and delight drivers with new innovations and quality features for four decades. This year, we celebrate the huge success that the Accord has enjoyed, including sales of more than 12.7 million units. Let’s take a closer look now at how the Honda Accord has been able to stand the test of time — not only in Billings and Lockwood, but across the country.
Honda burst onto the U.S. car scene with the core elements that fit the needs of an everyday driver. With the standard of vehicles at the time being high-powered V8s that guzzled gas, the Accord was a first of its kind with only 68 horsepower and stunning efficiency for the time. What made it really stand out was the fact that it was the first vehicle that came with AM/FM radio as standard equipment. This notion is what Honda has built its success around, which has led to more auto innovations year after year.
With the growing demand after becoming one of the top-selling cars in the United States, Honda continues to adapt to the needs of drivers in Billings, Lockwood, and around the country. With millennials becoming a larger part of the buying demographic, Honda looks to innovate in the form of technology features, and so it’s unsurprising that it’s one of the first automakers to offer Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™.
The Accord was also among the first Honda models — along with the CR-V, Pilot, and Civic — to offer the Honda Sensing suite of advanced safety and driver-assistance technologies. The Accord is also one of the only models that makes these features available on all of its trim levels instead of only the upper-level trims.
