Honda has defined the midsize and compact sedan segments with the Accord and Civic respectively. The Japanese automaker has a firm foothold in the crossover and SUV market while the Honda Odyssey minivan falls second to none. Now Honda is looking to innovate and stake their claim in the midsize pickup market. The 2017 Honda Ridgeline is available now and it means business. For any questions about the Honda Ridgeline, stop by our dealership today!
Starting at just $29,475, the Honda Ridgeline features both two-wheel and all-wheel drive configurations. Capable of towing up to 5,000 lbs., transporting cargo is a no-brainer.
Under the hood is a 3.5-liter V6 engine that offers 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. Earning an EPA-estimated 19 city/26 hwy mpg, it’s one of the most efficient trucks on the market. Available with the Honda Sensing safety suite, the Ridgeline has you covered from top to bottom and front to back.
While some doubt the Ridgeline’s durability, remember when Chevrolet took a direct shot at Ford’s aluminum body with the rock drop test? Well, Honda put the Ridgeline to the test as well. The entire video is just over two minutes long and features over 800 lbs. of rocks falling into the Ridgeline’s composite bed. The end result is so little damage that it’s hardly noticeable. The same can’t be said for the other full-size pickups, let alone midsize trucks.
