2017 Honda Ridgeline
After several years on break, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline is back with a bang. This compact pickup truck checks all of the boxes when it comes to capability and comfort. If you’ve been searching for a truck with outstanding safety ratings, a full suite of features, great fuel economy, and off-roading capabilities, then check out the all-new Ridgeline.
The 2017 Honda Ridgeline is not your average pickup truck, it’s a modern all-in-one vehicle. If you’re looking for a comfortable daily driver that also gives you the option to tow or haul when you need to, this is the perfect truck for you. It provides a smooth ride and well-balanced performance while being able to really hold its own off-road as well.
The interior is known for its spacious seating and quality materials. With seating for up to five, it also offers a great variety of unique storage and hauling options, including a separate lockable trunk compartment in the bed of the trunk. A rearview camera, Bluetooth, push-button start, and a 5-inch display all come standard in addition to many more available features.
A V-6 engine is standard across all trim levels, providing the perfect combination of power and efficiency. Whether you’re running daily errands or towing an ATV on a muddy trail, the Ridgeline will handle it with ease. This is one of the only trucks on the market that offers both front-wheel-drive and all-wheel drive. This truck’s capability and comfort combine to make something well-rounded and truly hard to beat.
The 2017 Honda Ridgeline has a full suite of interior technology and comfort features. Standard is push-button start, a seven-speaker audio system with subwoofer, a 5-inch Color LCD Screen, a USB and auxiliary port, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and Streaming Audio, and a rearview camera. There are also illuminated steering wheel-mounted controls to help you keep your eyes on the road.
Available features include Tri-Zone Climate Control, HD & Satellite Radio, a power moonroof, a power sliding rear window, an 8-inch touch-screen audio system with navigation, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Pandora compatibility, SMS Text Function, HondaLink, and a unique truck-bed audio system. These six weather-proof speakers let you blast your favorite tunes from the bed of your truck while tailgating, hanging at the lake, or helping a friend move.
Also in the bed of the truck is a lockable 7.3 cu. ft. trunk. This is perfect for use as a regular trunk, a place to store wet gear, or even a full-on ice chest: it has a drain plug as well. Something else unique about the bed of this truck is the way it opens. For easier access, the tailgate can be opened by swinging it to the side or by the traditional way of folding it down. There is also a 400-watt AC power outlet located in the bed. It’s features like this that really set this truck apart from the others.
With its standard 3.5L V6 engine, great power and acceleration, and quality handling, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline is a true do-it-all truck. From towing and off-roading to long road trips and daily driving, this compact truck is up for the task. Its smooth drive and quiet cabin make it feel almost more like you’re driving a luxury SUV, yet its powerful acceleration reminds you that you’re in a very capable truck. Unlike many of its competitors, this truck is built with a unit-body construction, making it lighter and helping with overall fuel efficiency.
It offers 280 horsepower with 262 lb-ft of torque and can tow up to 5,000 pounds with a max payload of 1,584 pounds. Both front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive are available. The AWD models feature Honda’s Intelligent Variable Torque Management system, which provides extra help with traction and handling, especially in snow and mud. You can even select a driving mode to match the road or terrain conditions that you’re in. The 2017 Honda Ridgeline is ranked as one of the top off-roading vehicles in its class.
This truck has one of the most spacious and comfortable interiors of all of its competitors. With class-leading passenger volume, there’s enough headroom and legroom for even very tall people to feel comfortable. Something that really sets this truck apart from the rest is its folding rear seats. These give you an additional way to store awkward-shaped items if the bed of the truck is already full. The rear seats also fold in a 60/40 split and come with heater ducts to keep your passengers warm.
Seats come in cloth, leather, or perforated leather, depending on the trim. The front seats are available with heating and a 10-way adjustable driver’s seat with power lumbar support. Tri-Zone Automatic Climate control is also available to keep all passengers at their most comfortable temperature. Other options include a One-Touch Power Moonroof, seat memory, a heated steering wheel, and all-season floor mats.
If you’re looking for one of the highest safety-rated trucks of 2017, then the Honda Ridgeline is for you. Standard safety features include Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control to keep you connected to the road in all weather conditions, Electronic Brake Distribution, Brake Assist, a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Guidelines, Tire Pressure Monitoring, and Daytime Running Lights.
Honda Sensing is available starting with the RTL-E Trim. This is a suite of extra safety features like Collision & Road Departure Mitigation, Lane Keep Assist, and Adaptive Cruise Control to give you extra protection. Blind Spot and Cross Traffic Monitoring are also available to help keep you safely in your lane.
Additionally, there are many included passive safety features working to keep you guarded at all times. Advanced Front Airbags, SmartVent Front Side Airbags, and Side Curtain Airbags with a Rollover Sensor are always ready to protect all passengers in the event of an accident. The second row also includes full LATCH systems and child-proof rear door locks to keep the kids extra safe.
From the more basic RT Trim all the way up to the feature-packed Black Edition, Honda gives you six different trim options for the 2017 Ridgeline. AWD is available in all trims except for the RTL-E and Black Edition, where it already comes standard. The base-level trim includes features like Push Button Start, Remote Entry, Bluetooth, and a 5-inch color touchscreen. The next trim up gives you Fog Lights, Smart Entry, Remote Engine Start, and Tri-Zone Climate Control. From there you can choose to upgrade to heated leather seats, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Honda Sensing, and more.
