Honda's redesigned mid-size truck, the 2017 Ridgeline
The 2017 Honda Ridgeline is the second generation of Honda’s midsize pickup truck, redesigned from the ground up. With a starting MSRP of $29,475, the all-new 2017 Honda Ridgeline comes in a total of seven trim levels and offers many new features.
Additionally, Honda combines this new platform with a new direct-injected 3.5-liter i-VTEC V-6 engine that produces 280 horsepower (30 more horsepower over the previous model) and 262 foot-pounds of torque (15 more). Fuel economy ratings are 19 mpg in the city, 26 mpg on the highway and 22 mpg combined for 2WD models and 18 mpg in the city, 25 mpg on the highway and 21 mpg combined for AWD models.
The seven 2017 Ridgeline models offer a variety of distinctive exterior trim finishes, including chrome and black chrome, body color and black. Up front, all trims have Honda’s chrome grille bar and body-color grille frame. Door handles are body color with the exception of mold-in-black finishes on the Ridgeline RT and Sport, and chrome on the RTL-E. The Sport also includes unique badging.
The 2017 Ridgeline is available in seven exterior colors (three interior colors) and its bed is now longer (by 3.9 inches) and wider ( by 5.5 inches) than in the previous model.
The premium quality of the new Ridgeline carries over to the interior, where designers have applied high quality, soft-touch materials throughout the cabin and added thoughtful available details such as Tri-Zone Automatic Climate Control, Push-Button Start, Smart Entry, and much more.
The Ridgeline offers seating for five with rear shoulder room listed at 61.5 inches, rear hip room of 56.6 inches and rear legroom of 36.7 inches.
The second-generation Ridgeline was designed, developed and is manufactured in America using domestic and globally sourced parts. Its exterior and interior design was developed by Honda R&D Americas Inc. in its Los Angeles design studio, while vehicle development was undertaken at the company’s Raymond, Ohio, new-model development center. Additionally, Honda Manufacturing of Alabama, LLC, in Lincoln, Alabama, is the exclusive manufacturing home for the 2017 Honda Ridgeline.
