What year was Honda CRV motor power upgrade. 2004?


I was trying to recall what year it was when I first heard the good news that the new model CRV had more power, as the only fault of my 1997 model was creeping up freeway hills. I want to get a new used crv and want to know which year the improvement was made. I was thinking 2004. Anyone out there must know! thanks PB


I believe the significant improvement was in 2002. Your year is truely anemic I agree.
