Features of the 2017 Honda Ridgeline
The Honda Ridgeline stands out as a different sort of pickup truck. When Honda engineers re-introduced the Ridgeline in 2017, they went back to the drawing board and rebuilt the pickup truck from the ground up. Let’s see what makes this pickup so different by exploring the unique features of the 2017 Honda Ridgeline.
Unique truck bed of the Honda Ridgeline
The most ambitious design choices come in the bed of this wonderful truck. For starters, the dual-action tailgate enables both easy access and easy loading no matter what you intend to do. You can fold it down like a normal tailgate and it can hold up to 300 pounds, or you can swing it to the side and reach deep into the bed without crawling in.
A further innovation is the inclusion of an in-bed trunk. With 7.3 cubic-feet of cargo space, you can store the perfect tailgate party or all your valuables, as this trunk locks. This impressive feature makes the Ridgeline the only pickup truck in the world to have a trunk. Both the dual-action tailgate and the in-bed trunk come standard across the entire Ridgeline lineup for 2017.
Ridgeline seating capacity
Unlike many other pickups where you have to opt for and pay extra for a cab suitable for more than two people, the Honda Ridgeline features standard seating for five. What’s more your back row passengers get their own separate doors that can operate independently from the front doors. That’s a feature typically reserved for the top-level cab on other pickup trucks.
Honda Sensing availability on the Ridgeline
One thing that easily sets Honda Apart from many other auto manufacturers is the Honda Sensing suite of safety technology. On the Ridgeline, you can take advantage of Honda Sensing features on the RTL-E and Black Edition trim levels. Take a look at the list below to see some of the features included along with Honda Sensing on the top Ridgeline trims.
