2017 is an exciting time for pickup drivers and truck enthusiasts alike. With the latest innovations from your favorite makes, you are sure to find the perfect truck for your specific needs. After a two-year hiatus, the all-new Honda Ridgeline will be the new kid on the block, and this truck is built to impress. From your AutoPark Honda professionals, here is what you should know about the 2017 Ridgeline.
A Reimagined Vision
Both the interior and the exterior of the 2017 Ridgeline have been designed to meet and exceed the needs of Honda drivers. The truck bed includes an additional trunk-like storage compartment under the liner and a tailgate that opens two ways, letting you maximize the hauling capacity of the truck. The Ridgeline’s truck beds also have a 150W/400W power outlet for additional convenience.
The look and feel of the Ridgeline interior are similar to those of your favorite Honda sedans, but with the cabin attached to a truck. By combining the best of both worlds, your new pickup is perfect for driving in the city, but it is still tough enough to tow large loads: up to 5,000 pounds, to be exact.
The Cabin of Your Dreams
From integrated technologies, including compatibility with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, to a luxurious feel, the cabin of the Ridgeline is seemingly straight out of a dream. Featuring an 8-inch touch screen in the dash, a push-start ignition, and unbelievably comfortable seats, you’ll have to keep reminding yourself that you are driving a pickup.
A dynamic color display, conveniently located right behind the steering wheel, helps you easily see that your truck is running as it should. On the steering wheel itself, you will find controls for the 8-inch display, making music navigation a breeze. You will also notice a convenient storage console adjacent to the driver’s seat, so you can say “so long” to the days of haphazardly shoving your wallet, phone, and receipts into your cup holders.
More Power, More Fuel Efficient
The new Ridgeline is supplied with a powerful, reliable engine, but that doesn’t mean fuel efficiency was sacrificed in the process. Each trim level of the Ridgeline features a V-6, 3.5-liter, 280-horsepower engine, giving this truck plenty of get-up-and-go power for the average user. Thanks to this more conservative engine, this pickup also has a healthy fuel economy, making the truck ideal for any driving situation.
Built for Improved Safety
Lastly, though most importantly, the new Ridgeline was created with the highest level of safety in mind. Some of the active safety features include: daytime running lights, ABS, a multi-angle rearview camera, and collision prevention systems. A LATCH system, advanced airbags, and three-point seatbelts are also included to keep you and your family as safe as possible when coasting through the busy city streets or bumpy country roads.
The redesigned Ridgeline is expected to do great things next year, and you can benefit from this truck’s outstanding performance when going from point A to point B.
