2017 Honda Ridgeline

The latest Honda Ridgeline specs boast innovative updates that redefine the world of pickup trucks and what consumers can expect from them. This January, the Ridgeline was recognized at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit when it took home the 2017 North American Truck of the Year Award. It’s the second time the Ridgeline has won this prestigious award, and the 2017 Ridgeline gave the judges plenty of reasons for the honor.

North American Truck of the Year Award

One of the reasons the North American Truck of the Year Award is so respected is because it comes from several independent experts working as a team, rather than being associated with one trade journal or website. More than 50 Canadian and American members of the automotive media band together to select the winner based on very specific categories. They look at innovation and design, how the vehicles handle on the road, safety performance, driver satisfaction, and value for the price. The group presents the award every year with great fanfare at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

Latest Model Ridgeline

2017 Honda Ridgeline

The latest Ridgeline specs come with all of the capabilities buyers expect in a pickup, plus a wealth of available innovations, some of which have never been seen before:

  • The world’s first Truck Bed Audio System uses the truck bed walls to pump out tunes.

  • Its lockable In-Bed Trunk® acts as a safe storage area, and it even has a drain plug so you can use it as a cooler.

  • Its Dual-Action Tailgate makes loading up easy because you can open it either way— down or to the side.

  • A 150W/400W outlet provides power for your work tools or tailgate party.

Did we mention that the latest model Ridgeline is the first and only pickup to earn a Top Safety Pick + rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety when equipped with available LED headlights and the front crash prevention system?

Last but not least, the rugged, chiseled Ridgeline features a unibody design and construction, giving it ample room for passengers and in the truck bed.
