The 2017 Honda Ridgeline Technology Features

  • Honda Ridgeline

    The 2017 Honda Ridgeline is decked out in technology features that help you stay connected, entertained, and safe on the road. From the base RT trim to the top-of-the-line Black Edition, you’ll have a long list of standard technology equipment right at your fingertips. Even the entry-level model is better equipped than other pickup trucks on the road. So no matter which trim level you choose, you’ll have all the technology you need to drive better and stay relaxed. But before you stop into a Metro Milwaukee Honda Dealer to check it out firsthand, let’s go over some of the technology that you can expect to find through the trim levels.

Connectivity Technology

It’s never been easier for drivers to stay connected while on the road. The 2017 Ridgeline is well equipped with connectivity technology from the start. Standard features that you’ll find include:


Ridgeline MPG Screen

Multi-information screen—A 4.2-inch screen that sits between the main gauges displays valuable trip information and makes it easy to take in fuel levels, outside temperature, and distance traveled all in at a glance.


Steering Wheel–Mounted Controls—Answer the phone, change the music, or turn down the volume, all without taking your hands off the wheel.

Ridgeline Display

Audio System—The standard 220-watt seven-speaker sound system includes a USB port and syncs up to your phone with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and HondaLink. You can access maps, social media, or your entire music library on your phone.

Ridgeline Navigation

5-inch Touchscreen—The control panel in the center allows you to navigate through the interface easily and intuitively, from choosing the music to choosing the route and everything in between.

Ridgeline Multi Angle Rearview Camera

Multi-View Camera—Displayed on the 5-inch touchscreen, this camera gives you three different views: wide, normal, and top-down. And with dynamic guidelines, you can back up in and out of tight spaces with ease.


As you go up the model lineup, you’ll see even more features and available equipment that builds upon the standard technology. Starting with the RTL-T trim, the 5-inch display here becomes an 8-inch touchscreen with an upgraded 225-watt sound system. Navigation, Pandora integration, an SMS text message feature, and additional USB ports are also upgraded features you’ll find here.

For even more sound, the RTL-E and top-of-the-line Black Edition trim include an upgraded 540-watt sound system with eight speakers.

Safety Features

Whether you’re on the daily commute or a long road trip, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline has a long list of features that help you drive better and safer. Along with the rearview camera that can help drivers back out safely and have eyes all around them, other features you’ll find inside every Ridgeline model include anti-lock brakes, stability and traction control, daytime running lights, tire pressure monitoring, and more.

Going up the trim levels, you’ll find more driving aids that bolster the Ridgeline in the realm of safety. Features include:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control—Sensitive to the speed of vehicles around the Ridgeline, this system adjusts your cruising speed with the flow of traffic.
  • Forward Collision Warning—Alerts drivers when the Ridgeline is approaching a vehicle too quickly.
  • Collision Mitigation Braking—This system can automatically engage the brakes to avoid a forward collision.
  • Lane Departure Warning—Drivers will be alerted if the Ridgeline starts to sway out of its lane. And with Lane Keeping Assistance and Road Departure Mitigation, it can help keep the Ridgeline centered and on track.
  • Blind Spot Monitoring—This feature can assist drivers by monitoring activity in their blind spot and warning when approaching vehicles are detected.
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Alert System—Using the same sensors at the Blind Spot Monitoring system, this system activates when you put the Ridgeline in reverse, giving you the go-ahead when the coast is clear.
  • Automatic High Beam Control—This system can detect light sources up ahead and, whether it detects headlights or taillights, can switch from high beam to low beam for better nighttime visibility.
  • Parking Sensors—T hese sensors detect objects or obstructions and warn the driver to avoid collisions when parking.

More Convenience Features

The technology in the Ridgeline doesn’t stop with just connectivity and safety—mixing practicality with elements of luxury, there are more features inside that makes the Ridgeline stand out even more from other vehicles on the road. Convenient features that you’ll find as either standard or available equipment include:


Honda Ridgeline Push Button Start

Standard Push-Button Start—Forget digging in your pocket or purse for your keys. Start the Ridgeline with just the push of a button.

Honda Ridgeline

Available Audio System in the Box—This industry-first audio system uses the technology of six exciters, forgoing traditional speakers that could be easily damaged by cargo or weather. This system is embedded into the wall of the truck bed, is waterproof, and will still pump out music, even if the bed is filled with dirt or mulch.

Ridgeline Entry

Available Remote Engine Start—Start the Ridgeline’s engine before you climb inside, giving the cabin a chance to warm up in the winter or cool off in the summer.

Honda Ridgeline

Available Power in the Bed—The bed also has an available 115-volt two-prong power outlet so you can plug in power tools you’re working with and charge up devices.
