The 2017 Honda Ridgeline beat out the Ford F-series Super Duty and Nissan Titan trucks to clinch the award. The points are awarded by a jury of nearly 60 automotive journalists from the USA and Canada. The Ridgeline was awarded 364 points, the Ford F-series 193 points, and the Nissan Titan 72 points.

The 2017 Ridgeline was recognized for unique features such as using an automotive unibody frame design with a truck body for an improved passenger ride, a distinctive locking “trunk” under the cargo bed, and a rear tailgate that can be opened from the top or from the side in a car-like fashion. Other features of the Ridgeline include rear passenger seats that fold up and out of the way to create a flat cargo area inside the cabin, towing capacity of up to 5,000 pounds when properly equipped with a tow package, minimum wheel well housings that allow 4×8 foot sheets of plywood or drywall to be carried in the cargo bed, and an industry-first truck bed audio system.

The interior of the 2017 Ridgeline is designed for comfort and convenience. An available 8-inch color touchscreen infotainment system provides a wealth of vehicle and entertainment options. Push button start with a smart key is available. A driver-centered multi-function display screen in the gauge cluster offers a range of features controlled by multiple buttons on the steering wheel. The center console is large enough to hold a 10-inch tablet. The 2017 Ridgeline also has a long list of available safety features including lane keeping assistance, adaptive cruise control, collision mitigation braking system, and road departure mitigation system.
