The five passenger Honda Ridgeline Crew Cab has been fully redesigned for 2017. The sharp Ridgeline returns after a 2 year hiatus reinvigorating the midsize pickup segment. You’ll find improved horsepower and fuel economy, a newly available two-wheel-drive option, advanced technology and safety features, some new high-end trim levels and a resized bed. Ridgeline still delivers a carlike ride and easy handling.
A very popular change for the 2017 Ridgeline styling has been lowering access to the front of the bed to a more traditional profile. This change allowed a 3.2 inch wheelbase expansion that supports a longer bed. At 66 inches, the Ridgeline's bed is now 2.3 inches longer than a Chevy Colorado and 3.5 inches longer than the Toyota Tacoma. The Ridgeline's unique in-bed trunk and dual action tailgate are still there and as distinctive as ever.
The Ridgeline also benefits from an upgraded 3.5-liter V6 and six-speed transmission, a stout combination that's 30-hp stronger and a full 4 mpg more efficient than the all-wheel-drive Ridgeline.
The 2017 Honda Ridgeline is offered in seven trim levels: RT, RTS, Sport, RTL, RTL-T, RTL-E and the Black Edition. The RTL-E and Black Edition are AWD only; the others are available in front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.
The RT standard features include: painted 18 inch five-spoke alloy wheels, a 2 inch receiver tow hitch, dual action tailgate, lockable in bed trunk, an incandescent cargo bed light, capless fuel filler, black door and tailgate handles, auto-off halogen projector headlights, LED taillights, push button start, a tilt and telescoping steering wheel with illuminated controls, console shifter, air-conditioning, cloth bucket seats, 60/40-split lift-up rear seat, under-seat storage, rear privacy glass, full power accessories and cruise control.
Up front you’ll find a 4.2 inch multifunctional screen between the gauges; the 200-watt seven-speaker sound system includes a USB port, Bluetooth phone, audio support and a 5 inch display screen connected to a sophisticated rearview camera.
Standard at the RTS level: 18 inch machine-finish alloy wheels, halogen foglights, body-color door and tailgate handles, smart entry, remote engine start, tri-zone automatic climate control, seatback pockets and a Homelink remote system. Looking at the Sport, standard features are mostly the same with the exception of added gray painted 18 inch alloy wheels, black exterior trim and red interior footwell lighting.
The RTL adds six-spoke 18-inch wheels, leather seating and a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats, and eight-way power adjustments among other enhancements.
The RTL-T offers all that and is the only trim with the Honda LaneWatch system, among a few more serious upgrades in sound and tech. Coming up on the RTL-E, Honda adds a power tilt/slide moonroof, LED headlights and LED cargo lighting in the bed among a wide package of upgrades.
Top of the line is the sexy Black Edition, a uniquely badged RTL-E only available in Crystal Black Pearl with black-painted wheels, black trim and grille, a black headliner, black leather seats with red stitching, red perforation accents and red interior ambient lighting, gorgeous!
With all this comfortable and agility, it is a stellar choice for a daily driver.
For those times you want to get out and have some fun and use it as a truck, you’ll be in love with the advanced all-wheel-drive system taking on the unpredictable terrain - and don’t forget that tow rating of 5,000 pounds!
