Honda ended production on the Ridgeline model in 2014. The automaker then took some time to regroup and design a model that would fit in with today’s driving standards.
And have they returned in a big way with the 2017 Honda Ridgeline.
The new 2017 Honda Ridgeline maintains the unibody mid-size pickup design, but the totally redesigned look proves that the little vacation the truck took has paid off.
The Ridgeline is designed for capable hauling and towing. That’s why the truck will continue to feature a robust four-wheel drive system, and a six-speed automatic comes standard.
It also features a more than capable 3.5-liter V6 powertrain, which ups the engine’s output to 280 horsepower. To help efficiency, the engine features cylinder deactivation, effectively turning off cylinders when they are not needed.
There are also some great new features, including an industry-first in-bed audio system.
We first saw the Honda Ridgeline over ten years ago. Back then, its unique design was immediately popular. With the all-new redesign, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline should prove to be more popular than ever.
The Ridgeline's comeback is something we've been looking forward to, and fortunately, Honda hit it out of the ballpark with a truck that stands out from the pack.
