This truck shatters all preconceived notions you may have about trucks and really steps up the game. If you're wondering just how, we're about to tell you! Stay tuned as we overview this game changer of a truck – the 2017 Honda Ridgeline in Cincinnati!
A Phenomenal Truck Bed
Honda made a seemingly unchangeable detail of trucks the star feature. Think of it as a "smart bed" – "From off-road toys to 4’ x 8’ sheets of plywood, the bed of the Ridgeline was designed with minimal wheel well housings in order to maximize hauling capabilities." Simple enough, right? The actual tailgate itself if smart too, opening multi-way unlike traditional tailgates. You are able to open the truck bed like a door or like a regular tailgate. Honda has also invented a solution to the low-storage problem with the In-Bed Trunk® that allows you to store items securely in the 7.3 cubic feet space located in the bed, and lock it, too. It even comes equipped with a drain plug so you can use it as an ice chest! We could go on about the truck bed's other cool features like the Truck Bed Audio System, but we need to keep moving so let's talk about the interior.
The interior of the 2017 Honda Ridgeline has an available 8-inch display, push start button, one-touch power moonroof, Bluetooth connectivity, 4.2'' multi-information display, and a center console that's big enough for a 10-inch tablet, just to name a few. There's seating for up to five adults comfortably, but if you are only seating 2 or 3 people, the seats are 60/40 lift-up rear seats to make room for extra storage. For the couple that is constantly switching who drives, you'll love the memory seat that has driver memory settings for up to two people.
Beauty and Power
Just when you think this truck can't get any better, you find out about the power capabilities. The Ridgeline is available with front or all-wheel drive but is powered by a 3.5L 280 horsepower V6 engine. And for all of you truck lovers that like a good towing capacity, the Ridgeline can tow up to 5,000 hefty pounds backed up by the 262 lb-ft of torque.
