When Honda first debuted the Ridgeline in 2005 it quickly became popular thanks to its unusual shape and unique features such as a cooler under the truck bed. Unfortunately with the rise of fuel prices Honda began falling behind the established truck manufacturers until the Ridgeline was eventually discontinued in 2014. For 2017, the Ridgeline in back and has been totally redesigned to take advantage of the once-again falling fuel prices. One look at the Ridgeline and you’ll spot the similarities with the current Pilot SUV -but since the Pilot is currently breaking sales records for Honda- that seems to be a good thing. Keeping in tradition the Ridgeline features a 8.5 cubic foot watertight compartment under the bed perfect for throwing ice in. Meant to be the perfect tailgate truck, the Ridgeline also features a unique in-bed stereo system delivering high quality sound outside the vehicle.
The Ridgeline’s sole engine option is Honda’s familiar 3.5L V-TEC V6 delivering 280-hp and 262 lb/ft of torque to the front wheels. Those looking to go off-road can option for the torque-vectoring all-wheel drive system. Fuel economy has risen for 2017 with FWD models returning 19 mpg city and 26 mpg highway and AWD equipped models only taking a 1 mpg hit which is still 4 mpg better than the last generation Ridgeline. The only fault to the Ridgeline’s powertrain is the transmission option being a six-speed unit that for today is a bit outdated. Towing is rated at 3,500lbs for FWD models and 5,000lbs for AWD units.
The 2017 Ridgeline’s interior has barely recognizable compared to the previous generations. Interior features now include a three-zone automatic climate control system, push-button and remote start, LED interior lighting, and a 4.2-inch multicolor infotainment system. An eight-inch touchscreen display complete with Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, and a satellite navigation system is also available (and recommended). The interior dimensions of the Ridgeline have grown to make more room for the occupants while the new available leather patterns and colors create a welcoming cabin.
The return of the Ridgeline will surely prove profitable for Honda, especially once you consider that the growth in size mean it can now hang with the big boys from Chevrolet and Toyota. With it’s unique styling, distinguishing features (like that under bed ice chest), and a high-class interior, the Ridgeline is coming back strong. The Honda Ridgeline competes against the Chevrolet Colorado, Nissan Frontier, and the Toyota Tacoma.
