After a brief hiatus, the Honda Ridgeline is back, delivering superior driving dynamics with the largest interior space offered in a mid-size 4 door pickup. Revealed in Detroit on January 11th at the North American International Auto Show, the Honda Ridgeline sets new benchmarks for versatility and comfort.
Designed, developed and manufactured in the U.S., the 2017 Ridgeline will launch in the first half of 2016. Designed to suit the needs of the “every day” driver, there are a number of features and capabilities that are unlike anything else in today’s market. Such features include:
- Class-leading space
- Class-exclusive features – In-Bed Trunk, dual-action tailgate and the industry’s first in-bed audio system.
- Available Honda Sensing suite of Safety and driver-assisted technologies.
- 8-inch Display Audio featuring Apple Car Play and Android Auto compatibility
The new design, based on Honda’s Global Light Truck platform, has a rigid yet lightweight unibody construction, with fully independent suspension. As such, it helps to deliver an excellent ride with even better handling. Powered by a 3.5 litre, direct-injected, i-VTEC V-6 engine with automatic transmission, the Ridgeline provides segment-leading EPA fuel economy ratings. For the first time ever, we are excited to announce that the Ridgeline will be available in both front wheel and all-wheel drive.
On the interior, the 60/40-split and folding second-row seats not only provide convenience, but give you the versatility that you need. When folded down, the truck can comfortably seat 5 passengers while still accommodating larger items that can be stored under the seat such as a golf bag.
If you’re looking for the convenience of hauling large loads, the truck bed on the Ridgeline is like no other. At 5’ wide and 5’4” long, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline is the only vehicle in its class able to offer 4-foot wide flatbed space. Additionally, the composite of the bed is UV-stabilized and scratch resistant and comes with a dual action tailgate, available 400-watt AC power inverter and the industry’s first in-bed audio system.
