A lot is expected out of the 2017 Honda Ridgeline. Let’s call it one cool, clean pick-up with handling anyone can love. This vehicle is expected to hit the roads in the late fall of 2016. Look to secure a basic model with front-wheel drive. The six-speed automatic will be packed tight with a V-6, 300-hp and a 3.5 cylinder engine. With the price set at its affordable range, you may even get this truck on the road faster you thought.
The interior of the Ridgeline has a spacious cabin for starters. Push to start capabilities, quality finishes, a four door model and leather trim take this vehicle to an impressive level of class. Let’s not forget the touch-screen display of over 7 and half inches. It has complete Android and Apple compatibilities for the avid mobile user.
This vehicle is fortunate to have quite a few features we don’t see on your typical pick-up truck. What’s inspiring to most are the blacked-out features like quality fender flares you can actually get dirty, roof rails for your weekend outdoor trip and crossbars; great step-up running boards and a skid plate you’ll get some use out of. But the specs for this vehicle doesn’t end there. Honda incorporated features even we were surprised to see. The ready and rough towing kit is a steal. It comes already manufactured with a usable 2-inch ball connection. The bed is protected by a solid tonneau cover. And we get four doors with individual access inside.
That’s a heck-of-a-deal for a utility ride with the power to do real work. This truck boasts of a new towing capacity of 5,000 lbs that many are just waiting to start using. Its performance will be unique as the manufacturer doesn’t intend to out class the ever popular F-150 or Chevy’s Silverado. It will be in a league of its own and has already defined it preference of sport. Consider easy parking, maneuverability and a heavy punch packaged with the horses you’ll need. Unfortunately, though, the truck won’t come with a turbo diesel option.
We’re surely impressed by it. The 2017 Ridgeline has many safety components. A Collision Mitigation Braking System, a Lane Keeping Assist, Road Departure Mitigation, Honda sensing technology, driver assist technology and airbag systems.
