THE ALL-NEW 2017 RIDGELINE A Truckload Of Ingenuity H onda didn’t set out to build a typical pickup truck. The world is filled with those already. Instead, they created a capable pickup with unique features that could only come from Honda. Like a dual-action tailgate, lockable In-Bed Trunk and the only available Truck-Bed Audio System. A pickup with a roomy cabin that seats five comfortably and has the most passenger volume in its class. The stylish yet smart all-new Ridgeline. It’s the Honda of trucks. PERFORMANCE Hit The Ground Running With its impressive performance, the temptation to hit the road has never been more powerful. So start planning your next adventure, because the Ridgeline is raring to go. RIDE AND HANDLING INNOVATIVE FEATURES Loaded With Smart Thinking N-BED TRUNK — The Ridgeline is the only pickup with a lockable trunk. This revolutionary feature provides 7.3 cubic feet of secure, versatile storage space with no compromise to bed utility. It has a drain for quick water removal and easy cleaning. DUAL-ACTION TAILGATE Want easy access to the In-Bed Trunk? Swing the tailgate to the side and you can reach right in. Have something large to load? Just lower the tailgate. And the over-four-foot-wide bed lets you easily haul large, flat items such as sheets of plywood. Take It Away TRUCK-BED AUDIO SYSTEM Turn the entire bed into a premium audio system. Six exciters use the walls of the truck bed to pump out 540 watts of sound. Since it can be operated via Bluetooth, you can control music with your smartphone from a distance. OFF-ROAD CAPABILITY EXTRA-VERSATILE SEATING The 60/40 split lift-up rear seat with underseat storage provides the ultimate in versatility. Fold the rear seat up for an ample amount of space that accommodates items four feet tall. And thanks to the flat floor, you can stow bulky cargo, like camping gear, under the seat and still have plenty of room for rear-seat passengers. Wherever you venture, the Ridgeline deftly delivers a smooth ride and handling that’s vastly superior to other pickups. And since it has a spacious cargo bed, you can take your toys with you. Roll With It Driving up a snowy mountain pass. Ascending a sandy hill. Navigating a rain-soaked dirt road. Neither snow nor sand nor mud shall intimidate the Ridgeline driver, because this super-capable truck has available technologythat lets you tackle virtually any terrain with confidence.
