The 2017 Honda Ridgeline Safety Features Are State-of-the-Art

  • Honda Ridgeline

    Safety is a top priority for all Honda models, and we think the 2017 Honda Ridgeline safety features are some of the most advanced in its class. Detroit drivers looking for a truck with advanced active safety amenities, state-of-the-art reactive safety features, and driver assist technologies, the Ridgeline is waiting for you.

Active Safety

These standard and available safety technologies help actively avoid accidents through a combination of automatic response safety features and warning systems.

  • Vehicle Stability Assist: If this safety system detects a loss of traction, it can adjust engine speeds, braking, and torque to even things out and counteract oversteer or understeer.
  • Advanced Braking Technologies: Anti-lock brakes work to keep the Ridgeline wheels from locking up during hard braking, Electronic Brake Distribution ensures each set of brakes applies the right force to slow the truck down evenly, and Brake Assist applies the maximum brake force during emergency braking.
  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: Back up with confidence that the path behind your Ridgeline is clear with the standard multi-angle camera; just shift into reverse and it will send a view of what’s behind the truck up to your in-dash screen.
  • Daytime Running Lights: Standard on all Ridgeline models, these lights help make the truck more visible during daytime driving so that it catches the eye of other drivers who may not be paying attention.

  • Collision Mitigation Braking: If the Ridgeline senses a forward collision is likely and detects that the driver hasn’t applied the brakes, this Honda Sensing safety feature can automatically brake the wheels to slow or stop the truck.
  • Road Departure Mitigation: A camera connected to this Honda Sensing safety feature tracks typical edge-of-road signs and issues a warning if it senses the Ridgeline heading off-road unintentionally. It can course-correct with steering and brake adjustments as well.
  • Forward Collision Warning: Radar systems on the front of the Ridgeline let this Honda Sensing safety feature detect the distance to a vehicle and warn the driver if it senses the truck is approaching too quickly and a collision is likely.
  • Lane Departure Warning: This Honda Sensing safety feature monitors pavement markings and alerts the driver with audio and visual warnings if it detects the truck drifting from its lane.

Passive Safety

These 2017 Honda Ridgeline safety features are waiting to be put to use, designed to respond to an accident and help secure, cushion, and protect passengers.

  • Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) Body Structure: The very frame of the Ridgeline is designed to offer safety during an accident, built with reinforced sections in common collision areas and designed to crumple in ways that direct crash energy away from passengers.
  • Airbags: A combination of dual-stage multiple-threshold front airbags, SmartVent side airbags, and side curtain airbags (with rollover sensor) work to protect passengers during collisions.
  • Three-Point Seat Belts: All seating positions come with three-point seat belts as standard to keep passengers secure in an accident; front seats include an automatic tensioning system and a seat belt reminder for added safety.
  • LATCH Anchors: Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) is a universal child safety seat anchoring system that lets you easily secure a car seat in any of the three rear seating positions.
  • Child-Proof Locks: Rear door locks on the Ridgeline have a child-proof setting that keeps any curious kids from tugging at the handle while you’re out and about.

Driver Assist Technology

In addition to the Ridgeline’s available auto high-beam headlights, these available driver assist technologies take safety to new heights on Honda’s pickup.

  • Honda LaneWatch: A camera mounted on the passenger-side mirror lets this available safety feature give you an actual look at what’s in the blind spot of the Ridgeline when you signal.
  • Blind-Spot Information System: Rear radar sensors can detect the presence of a vehicle in the Ridgeline’s blind spot, alerting you via an indicator light and giving you peace of mind when it’s time to change lanes—remember, nothing is a substitute for a visual check of the blind spot, though.
  • Lane Keeping Assist: This Honda Sensing feature uses a front-mounted camera to track markings on the pavement, alerting the driver and giving the wheel a gentle nudge to keep the vehicle centered in its lane.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control: Found on the Honda Sensing package, Adaptive Cruise Control uses radar sensors to track the speeds of other vehicles and adjust cruise control settings accordingly, letting you keep pace and focus on the drive ahead.
