Production was halted on the former Ridgeline at the conclusion of the 2014 model year. Evidently the two years that passed between the 2014 Ridgeline’s end and the advent of the 2017 model were productive ones for Honda, as the all-new Ridgeline has come to the road totally revamped and boasting impressive power and innovative amenities—including some firsts in the industry!
Seven Ridgeline models comprise the lineup for the 2017 model year:
Ridgeline RT: Priced at $29,475 MSRP*
Ridgeline RTS: Priced at $31,515 MSRP*
Ridgeline Sport: Priced at $33,015 MSRP*
Ridgeline RTL: Priced at $33,780 MSRP*
Ridgeline RTL-T: Priced at $35,930 MSRP*
Ridgeline RTL-E: Priced at $41,370 MSRP*
Ridgeline Black Edition: Priced at $42,870 MSRP*
The mighty Ridgeline hasn’t missed a beat, and this impressive truck serves up amenities that come right to the cutting edge—including a variety of industry firsts.
Standard features found onboard the Ridgeline include:
World’s First In-Bed Trunk: This outside-the-box feature is the only one of its kind in the automotive industry. That’s right—the Honda Ridgeline is the first truck in the world to offer an in-bed trunk. Delivering 7.3 cubic feet of space, the Ridgeline’s in-bed trunk is large enough to fit an ice chest—and it even has a drain plug, so it can serve as an ice chest itself if need be. This amazing storage location is also lockable and includes built-in grocery bag hooks and guides for cargo dividers.
World’s First Dual-Action Tailgate: The Ridgeline’s innovative tailgate is also an industry first, employing a specially designed hinge system that lets drivers open the tailgate vertically—folding it down—or horizontally, swinging it out like a door. When folded down, this impressive tailgate can hold up to 300 pounds.
World’s First Truck-Bed Audio System: Standard in the RTL-E and Black Edition models, this first-in-the-industry feature includes six exciters located in the truck-bed wall that pump out sound with up to 540 watts of power. When you want to take the party outside or you want to hear your tunes while you’re working, the Truck-Bed Audio System delivers quality sound outside your vehicle. This feature also includes Bluetooth controls so you can operate the system right from your smartphone or device.
Intelligent Traction Management System: This standard feature intelligently adjusts the Ridgeline’s handling performance, letting drivers tackle terrain confidently on a variety of surfaces. Four driving modes are included: Normal, Snow, Mud, and Sand.
Truck-Bed Lights: Standard on every Ridgeline model are lights that have been integrated into the bed of the truck, providing much-needed illumination when drivers are loading or unloading cargo or performing other work at night or in a dark garage. Upgraded LED truck-bed lights are featured in the RTL-E and Black Edition.
While the Ridgeline is certainly designed for utility, it has also been thoughtfully and carefully tailored for comfort.
This unique truck features standard seating for five passengers with up to an incredible 109.7 cubic feet of passenger volume, transitioning easily from work time to family time with lots of comfortable room for your loved ones as well as space for your buddies when you want to hang out after work.
Interior amenities include a tri-zone automatic climate control system with humidity control and air filtration (standard in all but the base trim), plentiful technology features, a leather-trimmed interior (standard in the four highest trim levels), and heated front seats (also standard in the four highest trim levels).
