The 2017 Honda Ridgeline is the second generation of Honda’s innovative midsize pickup truck, redesigned from the ground up to offer both recreational and work users a higher degree of utility and versatility in a modern, rugged and sophisticated midsize pickup with the largest and most flexible cabin in its class; a higher level of confident and refined dynamic performance; and robust cargo-hauling and towing capabilities, including a top of class maximum 713kg payload capacity (varies by trim) and up to 5,000-pound towing (standard on all grades).
Based on Honda’s Global Light Truck platform – with its highly rigid, aerodynamic and tightly sealed unitized body construction, Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) safety body structure, and fully independent front and rear suspension systems with Amplitude Reactive Dampers – the 2017 Honda Ridgeline offers vastly superior ride comfort and handling precision compared to conventional body-on-frame truck offerings, along with the top-in-class cabin quietness and anticipated collision safety performance.
Combining this new platform with a more powerful and efficient direct-injected 3.5-liter i-VTEC™ V-6 engine, a 6-speed automatic transmission with wider ratio spread, and available new Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ (iVTM-4™) torque-vectoring all-wheel drive – the most advanced AWD technology in the midsize truck class – results in class-leading nrCan fuel economy ratings along with superior all-weather traction and handling capability and robust medium-duty off-road performance.
The 2017 Ridgeline also offers customers an expanded array of standard and available premium features and technologies, including a new standard 8-inch Display Audio touchscreen with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® compatibility, Standard Honda Sensing and an available new generation of Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™. A wide array of new standard and available equipment includes Tri-Zone Automatic Climate Control, Proximity Key Entry with Push-Button Start, Remote Engine Start, a power sliding rear window, LED exterior and interior lighting and more.
Premium Style and Features
The all-new 2017 Ridgeline sports a sleek, sophisticated and rugged exterior design, incorporating new premium features including standard LED taillights, and available features such as LED projector headlights and LED daytime running lights.
The premium quality of the new Ridgeline carries over to the interior, where designers have applied high quality, soft-touch materials throughout the cabin and added thoughtful details such as LED map lighting. Additional high-end amenities include a standard 4.2-inch colour display, standard heated front seats and available heated steering wheel, heated rear seats and ventilated front seats. All models also come standard with a Class III towing hitch and a 7-pin wiring connector.
The Ridgeline’s 60/40-split and folding rear seat offers roomy seating for up to three passengers and, with the seat bottoms folded up, has the capacity to carry bulky items like a 47-inch flat screen television or a mountain bike with the wheel intact. Exclusive in its class, the Ridgeline’s large under-seat storage area can carry long items, such as golf clubs, with the rear seats folded down.
Innovative and Versatile Pickup Bed
The 2017 Ridgeline’s new UV-stabilized ultra-high strength steel-reinforced SMC composite bed is longer (+3.9 inches/99.1mm) and wider (+5.5 inches/139.7mm) than in the previous model and is the only bed in the midsize class that can flat haul 4-foot-wide items, such as drywall or plywood panels on the floor between the wheel wells. Importantly, it does not require a bed liner like conventional steel beds. The new Ridgeline bed also boasts numerous Honda-exclusive features and capabilities, including a highly versatile Dual-Action Tailgate, a redesigned In-Bed Trunk™ with fully flat floor, and available world’s first Truck Bed Audio System, making this new Ridgeline the ultimate tailgating vehicle. An available 115V AC in-bed power outlet with up to 400-watt charging (with engine running) and eight standard 350-pound (158 kg) tie-down cleats complete the Ridgeline’s capable and versatile bed design.
Advanced Powertrain and All-Wheel-Drive Technology
The 2017 Honda Ridgeline is powered by a new 3.5-liter direct-injected SOHC i-VTEC™ V-6 engine with Variable Cylinder Management™ (VCM™), mated to a wide ratio 6-speed automatic transmission. Peak engine output of 280 horsepower (+30HP over the previous model) and 262 lb.-ft. of torque (+15 lb.-ft.), along with a 35.4kg average reduction in curb weight and a more aerodynamically efficient exterior design, combine to deliver the quickest acceleration and help the Ridgeline receive the highest nrCAN fuel-economy ratings in the midsize AWD pickup truck class.
the 2017 Ridgeline comes standard with an all-wheel-drive drivetrain layoututilizing Honda’s newest and most advanced AWD technology – Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ (i-VTM4). This entirely more capable system offers reduced weight, improved all-weather traction and enhanced dynamic handling capability. Honda i-VTM4 progressively distributes optimum torque between the front and rear axles and dynamically distributes engine torque between the left and right rear wheels.
Intelligent Traction Management
This new Ridgeline features a button-operated Intelligent Traction Management System that offers different operating modes, Normal, Snow, Mud and Sand. Developed, tuned and tested at various locations in the U.S. and around the world – including Imperial Dunes "Glamis", California; Moscow, Russia; and Dubai, United Arab Emirates – the Intelligent Traction Management system allows the driver to select the operating mode that best suits the driving conditions by simply pushing a button on the vehicle's centre console. Based on the setting selected, the system adjusts the drive-by-wire map, transmission shift map, Vehicle Stability Assist™ and i-VTM4 torque distribution for AWD-equipped models for optimal performance in a variety of road or surface conditions.
The new Ridgeline delivers the most advanced technology and connectivity that Honda has to offer, including a standard 8-inch capacitive touchscreen Display Audio connectivity interface with both Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility for seamless integration of compatible smartphone features and functions, including smartphone-powered navigation capabilities.
The 2017 Ridgeline can also be equipped with a newly designed Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ featuring improved graphics and new capabilities, including 3D renderings of terrain, buildings and road signs, improved lane guidance, live search function and more. Additional standard and available technologies include HD Radio, SiriusXM 2.0 and up to four USB ports including two with 2.5-amp charging capability.
Advanced Safety Performance
Utilizing Honda’s second-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure and “3-bone” front floor construction, along with advanced supplemental restraint systems and standard Honda Sensing™ safety and driver-assistive technologies, the 2017 Ridgeline targets the highest available crash safety ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) including an a 5-star Overall Vehicle Score in the NHTSA’s New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) and a TOP SAFETY PICK+ score from the IIHS, including a GOOD rating in the Institute’s rigorous small overlap frontal collision test.
Honda Sensing™ is the most comprehensive suite of advanced safety and driver assistive features in the midsize pickup truck segment and comes standard on the 2017 Ridgeline; and includes Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC). The 2017 Ridgeline, depending on trim, can also be equipped with Honda LaneWatch™, Rear Cross Traffic Monitor and a blind spot information system; and all Ridgeline’s come equipped with a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera.
