Explore the Impressive 2017 Honda Ridgeline Utility Offerings

The 2017 North American Truck of the Year winner* has been making waves in the automotive world with its impressive innovations and first-in-the-market amenities. Among its many standout features, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline’s utility capabilities will have drivers hugely impressed. Geared up to haul, tow, hold cargo, and even accommodate your family, the game-changing Ridgeline is all a truck should be—and more.

As a reviewer at Edmunds.com said of the Ridgeline: “The 2017 Ridgeline is a solid cargo hauler, inside and out. The crew cab’s short bed is longer than competitors, has a higher payload rating, is the only one that holds 4-foot-wide sheets, and has a lockable in-bed trunk and a two-way tailgate.”

Keep reading to learn more about some of the Ridgeline’s many outstanding capabilities!

Impressive Capability

The mighty Ridgeline is a powerful machine when it comes to towing and hauling.

The truck’s standard 3.5L V6 engine delivers 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque and enables the pickup to tow up to 5,000 pounds. The Ridgeline further boasts 1,584 pounds of payload capacity when equipped with all-wheel drive.

This versatile truck additionally has up to 7.87 inches of ground clearance (when equipped with AWD) for tackling off-road excursions. An available Intelligent Variable Torque Management system (i-VTM4) provides modes for handling normal conditions as well as snow, mud, and sand, so drivers can feel confident going wherever adventure takes them.

Not Your Average Bed

In addition to its performance might, the Honda Ridgeline is also a master of innovation—starting with its outside-the-box bed.

Designed with minimal wheel housings, the bed of the Ridgeline is configured to let drivers maximize hauling capability. The truck bed offers 33.9 cubic feet of usable space. In addition to that, the Ridgeline features the driving world’s very first in-bed trunk. Integrated into the bed, this lockable trunk provides 7.3 cubic feet of cargo space and even has a drain plug, so drivers can use this innovative trunk space as an ice chest or a place to stash wet gear. The in-bed trunk can also accommodate accessory cargo dividers as well as built-in grocery bag hooks.

Another of the Ridgeline’s innovations is an available truck-bed audio system—also the first of its kind in the automotive market. This exterior audio system delivers 540 watts of power through six exciters in the truck-bed wall. The system can be controlled via Bluetooth connectivity through a compatible smartphone or other device.

Even the Ridgeline’s tailgate is a pioneering feature. The truck’s dual-action tailgate has a specially engineered hinge system that enables it to open both vertically and horizontally—something no other truck tailgate is able to do.

The amazingly outfitted Ridgeline’s bed further includes an available 150-watt/400-watt power outlet located in the truck-bed wall, which can power tools and even a television right there in the back of the truck.

Functional Interior

Utility and function are also outstanding inside the Ridgeline, with impressive seating and cargo options to accommodate both passengers and gear.

The Ridgeline has standard seating for five occupants with up to 109.7 cubic feet of passenger space.

There’s plenty of room for cargo, as well. The truck has 60/40-split lift-up rear seats that allow a variety of configurations for packing in whatever driver and passengers need to bring along. The second-row seat also conceals 2.9 cubic feet of under-seat storage—perfect for hiding away valuables and other cargo that drivers don’t want to leave visible.

Other convenient storage nooks within the Ridgeline include multifunctional center console storage, a lockable glove compartment, seatback pockets, a sunglasses holder, and front and rear beverage holders.
