2017 Honda Ridgeline Redesign

After a short, two-year pause, Honda, the leading Japanese multinational auto manufacturer, is taking an additional shot at the pickup sector, introducing its all-fresh, second-cohort Ridgeline for the model year 2017 at the 2016 auto show held in Detroit. The 2017 Honda Ridgeline is an innovative medium-sized pickup truck, which will release shortly for sale to the public all over the world.

It is expected to come with extraordinary features, particularly highlighting the in-bed acoustic feature, which is appealing and self-explanatory. If the owners of the vehicle would like to play music through speakers in the automobile bed, it is just a key-push away. Although many are quick to reject this unibody mid-size vehicle, it is expected that next Honda Ridgeline 2017 would stack up well to vie with the present competition.

2017 Honda Ridgeline Specs

As the earlier Ridgeline did when it was unveiled at the same Detroit auto show held in 2005, the new Ridgeline 2017 is closely associated with the Pilot crossover and shares its engine and the unibody platform. However, this time, the future Honda Ridgeline will not only be offered with both front-wheel and four-wheel drive systems, making it the only automobile with a cargo bed thus outfitted.
The 2017 model Ridgeline resembles a good, four-door pickup truck when compared to the earlier Ridgeline that had rather an awkward look, a droopy back fascia, buttressed C-pillars and a tailgate, which looked one size excessively small.

The front fascia of the new Honda Ridgeline 2017 is significantly more butch, owing to a low front bumper when compared with the Pilot. This offers the new vehicle a suitably physically powerful and wide countenance, while stylists appreciatively stood firm against the urge to slap on an unnaturally massive grille and soak the thing in dressing and chrome. Definitely, taste has succeeded from stem to firm, with delicate fender arches and body-side surfaces, standard-size mirrors, and straightforward tail lights with a C-shaped lighting pattern.

The entry-level RT is well-equipped with standard features including painted 18-inch five-spoke alloy wheels, a 2-inch receiver tow hitch, dual-action tailgate, lockable in-bed trunk, an incandescent cargo bed light, capless fuel filler, black door and tailgate handles, auto-off halogen projector headlights, LED taillights, push-button start, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel with illuminated controls, console shifter, air-conditioning, cloth bucket seats, 60/40-split lift-up rear seat (with under-seat storage), rear privacy glass, full power accessories and cruise control. A 4.2-inch multi-information screen sits between the main gauges, and the 200-watt seven-speaker sound system includes a USB port, Bluetooth phone and audio support and a 5-inch display screen that’s also connected to a multi-angle rearview camera with dynamic guidelines.

Move up to the RTS and you’ll get 18-inch machine-finish alloy wheels, halogen foglights, body-color door and tailgate handles, smart entry, remote engine start, tri-zone automatic climate control, seatback pockets and a Homelink remote system. The Sport is essentially the same except for unique gray-painted 18-inch alloy wheels, black exterior trim and red interior footwell lighting.

The automaker has not yet revealed the high-tech interior features, but it has been confirmed that the new truck will be provided with triple-zone automatic temperature control, push-button start, leather upholstery and an eight-inch display acoustic system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay functionality. Versatility is improved by 60:40-split back seats that can be folded up or down.

Most notably, the old Ridgeline’s polarizing exterior styling has been scrapped in favor of a more traditional bed design. The change makes it easier to reach into the forward end, and it allowed a 3.2-inch wheelbase stretch that enabled a longer bed. Now 66 inches long, the Ridgeline’s bed is 2.3 inches longer than a Chevrolet Colorado’s and 3.5 inches longer than a Toyota Tacoma’s. As for the Ridgeline’s signature in-bed trunk and dual-action tailgate, they’re still here and as unique as ever.

The next generation Honda Ridgeline also comes outfitted with LaneWatch system of the company that displays a copy from a camera, which is installed under the passenger-side mirror on the middle screen. This feature may be quite useful when compared to that of the small sedans of Honda, chiefly when the cargo bed is completely filled. Furthermore, the greatest payload of the vehicle is expected to be 1600 pounds (approx 728 kg), which is more than that of the Pilot.

Above that is the RTL-E, which adds a power tilt/slide moonroof, LED headlights with auto on/off and auto high beam control, chrome door handles, a power sliding rear window, parking sensors, driver seat memory, a heated steering wheel, a front passenger armrest and a suite of driver aids including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automated emergency braking, lane departure warning with lane keeping assistance and road departure mitigation, blind-spot monitoring and a rear cross-traffic alert system. Its uprated stereo has 540 watts and eight speakers (the extra one is a subwoofer), and it comes with an all-new truck bed speaker system. The bed also gains LED cargo lighting and a 115-volt two-prong power outlet.

2017 Honda Ridgeline Engine

Honda has not yet revealed about the 2017 Honda Ridgeline engine figures. It is confirmed that it will be powered by the same engine as that of the Pilot. Consequently, it will be a V6, direct-injected engine with the displacement of 3.5 liters. Furthermore, this engine is finely tuned to offer the new vehicle more power of 300 ponies and a slightly less torque of 245 lbs per foot than those received by the Pilot, which were 280 ponies and 262 lbs per foot.

There is also a difference in the towing capacity of the new model Ridgeline according to the drive modes. The 2017 Ridgeline will have a towing capacity of 6000 or 7000 pounds in a case of front-wheel drive mode, and 7000 pounds in case all-wheel drive mode when compared to that of 5000 pounds of the earlier model.

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline comes with a 3.5-liter V6 engine that makes 280 horsepower, an increase of 30 hp over the old motor. Power flows out through a six-speed automatic transmission instead of the five-speed used previously, and front-wheel drive is now offered on a Ridgeline for the first time.

The now-optional all-wheel-drive system is a full automatic setup with driver-selectable terrain settings that include Normal, Snow, Mud and Sand. These settings alter throttle sensitivity, transmission shift timing, traction control and stability control intervention thresholds and the front/rear power split, which can range between 100-percent front and 30-percent front/70-percent rear as needs dictate. There is no low-range transfer case as on some of the more traditional trucks in the segment.

The Ridgeline also benefits from an upgraded 3.5-liter V6 and six-speed transmission, a stout combination that’s 30-horsepower stronger and a full 4 mpg more efficient than an old all-wheel-drive Ridgeline. And those in sunbelt states can choose a new front-wheel-drive version that’s even more efficient and costs less.

The Ridgeline can’t match bigger trucks for pulling and payload, but it bests every other truck regardless of size for its ride and handling. Adapted from the Pilot, the Ridgeline’s powertrain is rated at 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Curb weight now ranges from 4,200 to 4,400 pounds. The new power-to-weight ratio slightly more in its favor; the Ridgeline is quicker, and its V-6 sounds pleasant enough as it pulls toward redline.

A 6-speed automatic is the only transmission offered, and it’s a good choice. The 9-speed offered on the Pilot has issues with dithering shift quality and early torque-converter lockup; the 6-speed simply makes a non-issue of putting power to the ground through either the front or all four wheels.

Ridgelines still only come in a single crew cab with short bed configuration. But this time around the forward cabin is as attractive and inviting as a Pilot, and is available with the Pilot’s full range of the latest tech and safety features. Meanwhile, the back row retains the class-leading legroom and unique folding rear seat that made the original Ridgeline so flexible and accommodating.
