All-new for 2017, the Ridgeline is available in seven trim levels and in two-wheel or four-wheel-drive configurations.
The redesigned model features such standard equipment as LED taillights, a multi-angle rearview camera, push-button start and a 4.2-inch color LCD screen.
A wide range of options includes LED projector headlights, LED daytime running lights, and a host of technology features, such as a larger touchscreen display, satellite navigation and a truck-bed audio system.
The new Ridgeline is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque (increases of 30 and 15, respectively, over the previous model), which comes mated to a standard wide-ratio six-speed automatic transmission.
"We've advanced the best and most beloved elements of the original Ridgeline and combined them with an outstanding new platform and the most advanced technology to create new value in the midsize pickup segment," said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda Division, in a statement. "The result is an amazingly versatile Honda truck with uncompromised capability."
Edmunds says: With the arrival of the new 2017 Honda Ridgeline, shoppers will find another tough competitor in the hotly contested midsize pickup truck market segment.
