Although it can still be classified as a pickup truck, the Honda Ridgeline has been completely re-imagined and redesigned to function as so much more. This sports utility truck has features that would appeal to any type of driver, whether they be traditional pickup drivers or families with kids who want some added utility. The Ridgeline is perfect for those who work hard during the week and also want to play hard on the weekend.
The 2017 Honda Ridgeline has excellent ratings, earning a 5 out of 5 from Car and Driver and a 4.9 out of 5 from Edmunds.com. The Ridgeline has been heralded for its smooth handling, which has been compared to Honda’s Accord sedan for its on-road mannerisms.
This truck can actually tow more than it weighs, using a tow hitch with a seven-pin connector that can tow up to 5,000 pounds (the truck itself weighs up to 4,500 lbs.). The Ridgeline features a 3.5 liter single overhead cam V6 engine capable of 280 horsepower and is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.
Unlike most pickup trucks, the Ridgeline utilizes all-wheel drive and gets up to 19 miles per gallon in the city and up to 26 mpg on the highway.
The 2017 Honda Ridgeline has several innovations and utilizes the latest in technology to make for a safe and entertaining ride. Available luxury features include:
- 8-Inch Touch-Screen Display
- One-Touch Power Moonroof
- Tri-Zone Automatic Climate Control
- Heated Steering Wheel
- Apple CarPlay™
- Android Auto™
- Blind Spot Information System
- Honda Lane Watch™
- Honda Sensing™
One of the most innovative parts of the Honda Ridgeline is what makes a truck a truck, its bed. Underneath the shallow 17-inch bed lies an industry first, large, lockable trunk with a removable drain plug, making it ideal to use for tailgating. The Ridgeline’s layered bed line is made from a textured composite polymer which makes it more resistant to dents, scrapes and scratches.
Traditionally a truck’s bed has been known for its utility and not its entertainment value. The Honda Ridgeline’s bed accomplishes both with its built-in outlet with enough wattage to plug in a big screen TV or power tools.
Your new favorite truck also features Truck Bed Tunes which lets you listen to your favorite music through the industry-first Truck Bed Audio System. The dual-action tailgate can also drop like a traditional pickup gate or swing open to the side.
The Ridgeline provides a comfortable, quiet and smooth ride unlike many other trucks. The interior can provide seating for up to five adults with multiple rear seat configurations utilizing Honda’s Lift-Up rear seats. The front seats also feature memory seat settings with two savable positions.
An Award-Winning Truck
Honda’s efforts in making the Ridgeline an amazing truck have been recognized across the auto industry. The 2017 Ridgeline has been named the North American Truck of the Year, a very high honor! The 2017 Ridgeline is also the first and only pickup to earn a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, when equipped with available front crash prevention system and LED headlights.
