“The Honda Ridgeline – The Midsize Truck that is Redefining the Industry”
Honda has just changed the game in the midsize truck industry, with their 2017 Honda Ridgeline. After a gap of two years, Honda is back with a redesigned Ridgeline, which is getting rave reviews from everyone in the industry. Honda rarely disappoints when it comes out with a new car, and the Ridgeline is another example of just how impressive the automaker has been over the years.
The best thing about the Honda Ridgeline is that it looks exactly like how a traditional truck should look like, without trying anything fancy. The truck bed has also gotten a redesign and now allows easier loading from the side of the truck. One of the standout features of the 2017 Honda Ridgeline is its design and the interior features that it offers.
Let’s take a look at some of the most impressive features of the 2017 Honda Ridgeline:
Power Hungry Beast
The 2017 Honda Ridgeline is an absolute beast when it comes to power under the hood. That was obviously expected from Honda, but they have seriously outdone themselves here. The Ridgeline has a standard 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 280 horsepower and offers 6-speed automatic transmission. If you think that is impressive, there is more for you to get happy about. Honda is now offering different driving platforms for the first time in its midsize pickup truck, and you can expect a front-wheel drive, and all-wheel drive option with the Ridgeline.
Outstanding fuel economy
Fuel economy is another facet that Honda has always impressed us with, and the 2017 Ridgeline is no exception. The previous Honda Ridgeline was regarded as a truck that didn’t provide fuel economy for all its power, and the latest model is all set to correct that. The 2017 Ridgeline will provide 18mpg in the city, and 25 mpg on the highway, which are great figures for pickup trucks.
How does it drive?
Okay, so you know that the car has got impressive features, but how does it actually drive? We decided to take the 2017 Honda Ridgeline for a drive and were more than impressed that it delivered superb power and handled quite well on all terrains. The fact that the truck features and independent suspension allows it to handle better and offer a more comfortable ride than convention pickup trucks.
You will be happy to know that the drive was quite and comfortable, while you could feel the power of the pickup truck.
The 2017 Honda Ridgeline certainly doesn’t lack for anything when it comes to the interior features of the truck. The interior is comfortable, and designed neatly with lots of trays and bins for holding stuff. It is better than the interior of the Tacoma or the Colorado, which should tell you how impressed we were about the interior of the Ridgeline.
Our take on the 2017 Honda Ridgeline is that it is a serious upgrade on other pickup trucks that are currently in the industry. Honda has definitely made a statement and redefined the industry with their latest pickup truck.
