Honda took it upon itself to redefine the truck with the 2017 Ridgeline. For a car builder always willing to alter the automotive landscape, Honda does it once more with a truck that is really three vehicles and one.
Reconfigured for 2017, mostly on the exterior, the Honda Ridgeline becomes more truck looking – but a more refined one as well. Only in a crew cab and only with a V6, the Ridgeline stakes its claim as to what it wants to be before letting what’s unique about it to flourish.
The Ridgeline has the smooth ride and the comfort of a car. It is sophisticated, both inside and out, but still has enough truck qualities to satisfy most truck owners.
The bed has a large storage compartment and the tailgate swings out for easier access. The bed is also designed to eliminate wheel-well intrusion into the bed. The results are easier use and more space for hauling.
The 280-hp V6 and available AWD round out the Ridgeline’s alpha identity as a truck. It is also front wheel drive, which gives the Ridgeline an advantage in handling compared to the competition. Available bed speakers give the Ridgeline another unique feature.
Unit Body construction of the Ridgeline also helps with handling and ride quality, making the truck more rigid as well as lighter.
Outside styling of the Ridgeline takes truck features and makes them more refined. Aerodynamic and sleek, the Ridgeline has the looks to fit into an urban landscape, but makes it up with truck qualities and unique features. The dual tailgate swings out or lowers. In the bed is a deep storage compartment with a drain plug. Standard LED brake lights help the Ridgeline stay in focus for others on the road.
The interior is spacious with room to store a 10’’ tablet in the center console. Push button start eliminates the need for a key. Inside there is plenty of room to seat five, and the rear seats fold up and out of the way. The materials in the Ridgeline are upscale with leather trimmed seats, and leather wrapped steering wheel, and shift knob.
Available features are heated steering wheel, 8’’ touchscreen, and Tri-Zone Automatic Climate Control.
The Ridgeline possesses Honda’s ACE body structure, and Advanced Airbags with Smart Vent and roof mounted Side Curtain airbags. Standard safety features in a Ridgeline include Vehicle Stability Assist, ABS, Electronic Brake Distribution, and Multi Angle Rearview Camera.
