Long Island Honda Dealer | NY 2017 Ridgeline
The 2017 Honda Ridgeline is perhaps the most ingenious pickup out today. It offers much flexibility in how it can be configured and used, even working well as a comfortable passenger vehicle. You can also choose between two-wheel or all-wheel drive for most model trims, with those being the RT, RTS, Sport, RTL, RTL-T, RTL-E, and Black Edition.
All trims use a powerful 3.5 liter V-6 developing 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. This engine is a 24-valve single overhead cam i-VTEC® design with direct fuel injection, an aluminum-alloy block and head, and a drive-by-wire throttle system. It is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission with available heavy-duty cooler (standard on RTL-E and Black Edition). The highly engineered engine includes features such as Eco Assist™, Active Noise Cancellation™, Variable Cylinder Management™, an active control engine mount system, hill start assist, and direct ignition with engine immobilizer. There are no tuneups scheduled for +/- 100,000 miles. EPA-estimated mileage ratings are 19 mpg city and 26 mpg for two-wheel drive, or 18 mpg city and 25 mpg highway for all-wheel drive. With all-wheel drive, the 2017 Ridgeline is rated to two up to 5000 pounds and the integrated towing receiver and 7-pin electrical connector are standard.
The 2017 Honda Ridgeline has many innovative features inside and out. Starting with the cargo bed, Honda uses an innovative design with minimal wheel wells to create a larger useful cargo space. You can lay out 4x8 foot sheets of plywood or drywall if needed. There is an available 150W/400W outlet in the bed for power tools or your next tailgate party. In the bed of the cargo area is a separate 7.3 cubic foot lockable storage area with a drain plug so you can use it as an ice chest for your next picnic. You can even add industry-first audio system in the bed for your next outdoor event or to add some tunes to your work day. The tailgate can be opened from the top or side for convenience, and has a rating of 300 pounds when opened down, allowing you to use the tailgate as a cargo bed surface for oversized materials.
The interior of the 2017 Ridgeline is all about comfort and convenience. Connectivity to audio, apps, and more is provided through an 8-inch touch screen. The stylish padded steering wheel contains a wide range of controls for audio, cruise, and smartphone connectivity. Directly ahead of the driver is a large 4.2-inch multi-information screen providing information on mileage, audio, or phone activity. Leave your key in your pocket with the smart key and pushbutton start. There is a large center console with enough room for a tablet computer, including a charge point. The rear seats fold 60/40 for cargo loading, and the floor is flat to create a large internal cargo area. Everyone will stay comfortable with available three-zone climate control. You can go anywhere in comfort with available leather trimmed seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. You can add steering wheel heating for comfort on cold days. Get more fresh air with the available one-touch moonroof, standard on the RTL-E and Black Edition. If you have more than one driver, you can add memory seating for two distinct driver positions.
Active and passive safety features keep everyone safe on weekend jaunts or trips to the job site. An advanced frame and body structure is strong yet lightweight. Front and side airbags protect all passengers. Active safety features include vehicle stability control, traction control, anti-lock brakes, electronic brake distribution, brake assist, a multi-angle rearview camera, tire pressure monitoring, and daytime running lights with LEDs on some trims. The RTL-E and Black Edition include Honda Sensing™, a group of features including collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, forward collision warning, and lane departure warning.
