2017 RidgelinePlenty of Boulder and Denver drivers have already become fans of Honda’s new truck, and the 2017 Honda Ridgeline reviews are showing us that the country’s top critics feel the same. They’ve lavished praise on the vehicle’s capable drive, first-rate technology, and completely unique bed.

Capability

“We expected it to be comfortable and agile, but it’s also uniquely capable among midsize pickups when it comes to hauling.” – Edmunds.com

An exceptional ride and handling helps the 2017 Honda Ridgeline impress everyone who gets behind the wheel. A 3.5L i-VTEC V6 engine delivers up to 280 hp, so you’ll be able to tow up to 5,000 pounds. As for the maximum payload, it comes in at 1,584 pounds. Off-roading is also strong thanks to the new torque-vectoring AWD system, which is 46 percent faster in engaging the rear wheels than the previous Ridgeline.

Technology

“One area where the new Ridgeline unquestionably has the upper hand in the midsize truck market is safety.” – Automobile Magazine

Look through some 2017 Honda Ridgeline reviews, and you’ll hear plenty about its plethora of features. HondaLink, Apple CarPlay®, and Android Auto™ let you connect your smartphone. A multi-angle rearview camera makes reversing easy, and driver-assistance technologies include Lane Departure Warning, Collision Mitigation Braking, Forward Collision Warning, Road Departure Mitigation, Lane Keeping Assist, and Adaptive Cruise Control.

Awesome Tailgate

“Tailgate party! The Ridgeline’s large-cooler-size in-bed trunk has a drain plug, an ideal feature when storing sodas on ice.” – Kelley Blue Book

The team over at Kelley Blue Book thought that the Ridgeline’s in-bed trunk was great, and we have to agree with them. In fact, the whole bed is something to shout about; an in-bed audio system brings the tunes to your tailgating party, and an innovative Dual-Action tailgate allows you to swing the bed open from the side as well as dropping it from the bottom.
