Honda’s all-new 2017 Ridgeline drives like an SUV, has cushy creature comforts and technology of an SUV, yet it has a truck bed and can still carry payload and tow. The Ridgeline may not be...

Very nice, but some things could be improved.

2017 Honda Ridgeline

The ride, stability, noise level, and fuel economy are very good. The plastic lined bed is much better than the painted steel on most trucks, although the bed is shallow. I’m not much a fan of pickups, but the dual acting tailgate and locking trunk sold me on the Ridgeline. The sound quality from the base model radio is poor. Climate control is good. Driver entry for feet is tight due to protruding skirt on seat base, but once in, the seating is quite comfortable. The transmission is smooth but a serious shortcoming is that you can’t lock it into fifth gear for towing. It either hunts between 4, 5, and 6, or you can lock it into fourth, which revs too high. For towing, the fuel tank is way too small, limiting practical range to 250 miles. Available colors are typical boring Honda choices. After 2017, AWD is not available on RT, and the RTS trim went away. I’m pleased with my ‘17 AWD RTS, but with the ‘18 and ‘19 trim level choices, I’d probably pass on the Ridgeline

The best truck ever: great for gardeners.

2017 Honda Ridgeline RTL-E

I have the Honda ridgeline that has all of the bells and whistles. When I bought it I didn't think that I would use all of the features but to get the ones that I wanted I had to get the top of the line model. I have used every single feature on this truck! I garden at a community garden and when I go there on a weekday and am there by myself I turn on the in bed speakers and work listening to music or talk. I have used the plug that is in the bed at the garden, too. The downside to the plug is that it is only a 2 prong plug so some tools are not able to be plugged in. The trunk is used all the time. The downside to it is if you have a load in the bed you cannot get to the trunk so you need to make sure that you have whatever you need out of the trunk before you load up the bed. I love the lane assist and alert features. There are many times that I have been saved from hitting someone while backing up or changing lanes because of them.

Honda’s ridgeline remodel takes it over the top!

2017 Honda Ridgeline

I drove a Ford f-150 for 20 years before switching to my Honda ridgeline. I like the better gas mileage and sporty feel of the ridgeline. I preferred the roominess of the f-150 but get along fine in the ridgeline. I have chronic pain so comfort was a big factor in my choice of a vehicle to replace the f-150. I have had several Honda's in the past and they have all been good cars. Great reliability, quality, economy, resale value and styling. My ridgeline is no exception. I didn't care for the sloping truck bed the ridgeline’s of earlier model years had so I was glad that Honda did a redesign with the 2017 model year. I cannot considered the Toyota Tacoma seriously but the driver’s seat was not very comfortable. I am happy with my Honda ridgeline choice and expect to drive it 20 years before I will need to trade it in for a new vehicle.
