  • 2017 Honda Ridgeline

Seven Fresh Models

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!

Turned-up Performance

The mighty Ridgeline models are each powered by a 3.5L SOHC i-VTEC V6 engine that features direct injection and Variable Cylinder Management and produces 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque.

Towing capacity in the Ridgeline trims is 3,500 pounds in the 2WD models and 5,000 pounds in the AWD models—plenty of power to tow along toys, trailers, and more wherever you’re headed.

In terms of fuel economy, the 2WD Ridgeline models deliver an EPA-estimated 26 mpg on the highway and 19 mpg in the city,** while the AWD models achieve an EPA-estimated 25 mpg on the highway and 18 mpg in the city.**

Outstanding Standard Features

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:


Honda Ridgeline

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.

Honda Ridgeline

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.

Honda Ridgeline

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.

Honda Ridgeline

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.

Honda Ridgeline

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.

Standout Safety

Cutting-edge amenities continue in the Ridgeline when it comes to safety, as the Ridgeline serves up some of the latest safety and driver-assist features the automotive industry has to offer, including:

  • Protecting Your Blind Side: A Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Monitor comes standard in the RTL-E and Black Edition models and is available for the other Ridgeline trims, using sensors located behind the rear bedside to alert the driver when there is an approaching vehicle in the truck’s blind spot.
  • Protecting Your Right Side: Available Honda LaneWatch helps drivers change lanes and make right turns with greater confidence, employing a camera that is integrated into the passenger-side exterior mirror. When the right turn signal is activated or the LaneWatch button is pressed on the turn signal switch, a real-time display is activated to show images of what is on the Ridgeline’s right side.
  • Honda Sensing Helpers: Available Honda Sensing technologies help drivers operate the Ridgeline more safely. Included among them are a Collision Mitigation Braking System, a Road Departure Mitigation System, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, a Lane Keeping Assist System, and Adaptive Cruise Control.
  • Intelligent Airbags: The Ridgeline’s advanced airbag system includes standard SmartVent front side airbags, which deploy or deactivate based on the size of the passenger detected in the front seat, helping protect children and smaller passengers. A rollover sensor also comes standard for the side curtain airbags, signaling the front passenger-side airbag to inflate into the space between the door and the passenger when a severe side impact is detected.
  • A View of What’s Behind You: It’s often difficult to see what’s behind a high-profile truck—and that can lead to disaster when you’re operating in reverse. A standard multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines shows Ridgeline drivers just what they’re missing as they back up.

Not Your Average Truck: Roominess & Design

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).
