Power Up Your Possibilities with 2017 Honda Ridgeline Performance Delivery

  • Honda Ridgeline

    If you’re looking for a powerhouse pickup truck that goes above and beyond, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline performance delivery and innovative features are sure to impress you.

    Towing power, exceptional fuel economy—the Ridgeline offers it all. This impressive pickup is making waves in the automotive world—are you ready to find out why?

Under the Hood

Each Honda Ridgeline model is powered by a direct-injected 3.5L SOHC i-VTEC V6 engine that delivers 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. This mighty engine is mated to a standard 6-speed automatic transmission.

The Ridgeline’s engine delivery outdoes the standard engine output of competitors like the 2016 Nissan Frontier, which generates just 152 hp and 171 lb-ft of torque at the base-model level; the 2016 Toyota Tacoma, which produces only 159 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque at its base trim level; and the 2016 Chevy Colorado, which offers just 200 hp and 191 lb-ft of torque in its base-model engine.

Performance-boosting features offered onboard the Ridgeline include variable cylinder management, an Eco-Assist System, Hill Start Assist, a high-capacity radiator with two high-power fans, and an available heavy-duty transmission cooler.

Towing Power and Payload

If you’re looking for a truck that is perfect for both work and play, the Ridgeline delivers big.

Onboard the Ridgeline AWD models, towing capacity is an outstanding 5,000 pounds, and the Ridgeline 2WD models serve up 3,500 pounds of towing power, which means drivers can hitch up work trailers, storage trailers, toy trailers, and camping trailers and tackle jobs and recreation with the power they need!

The Ridgeline also features standard towing pre-wiring, which the Chevy Colorado, Toyota Tacoma, and Nissan Frontier don’t.

Payload capacity onboard the Ridgeline is up to 1,588 pounds, enabling drivers to load up whatever adventure gear or work equipment they need.

Fuel Efficiency

When it comes to fuel economy, the Ridgeline is near the top of its segment—a fact drivers will be glad of when it’s time to fuel up.

In 2WD Ridgeline models, fuel economy is rated at an EPA-estimated 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway,* while AWD Ridgeline models achieve an EPA-estimated 18 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.*

When comparing the Ridgeline’s fuel efficiency to that of its top rivals, it quickly becomes apparent that the Ridgeline deftly surpasses the offerings of those competing trucks.

For instance, the 2016 Chevy Colorado 4×4 models that are equipped with a V6 engine achieve just 17 city mpg and 24 highway mpg. 2017 Toyota Tacoma 4×4 models equipped with a V6 engine deliver between 17 and 18 city mpg and between 20 and 23 highway mpg. In the 2016 Nissan Frontier 4×4 models, fuel economy is 15 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway.

Intelligent Traction Management

Whether you’re onboard a 2WD or AWD model, the 2017 Ridgeline features a new push-button-operated Intelligent Traction Management System. For the AWD models, this system offers four operating modes: Normal, Snow, Mud, and Sand. In 2WD models, the system has two modes: Normal and Snow.

In the 2WD models, as previously mentioned, drivers will enjoy higher fuel economy ratings, while the AWD trims are well-equipped to tackle adverse weather conditions and various types of terrain.

Available for the Ridgeline in 2017 is the Intelligent Variable Torque Management (i-VTM4) AWD system, which makes encountering sand and other low-traction conditions a veritable breeze.

Superior to four-wheel drive, the i-VTM4 AWD system has no transfer case, so the driver isn’t involved in choosing high, low, or 4×4 mode. Rather, Ridgeline operators simply push a button on the center console to select Snow, Mud, Sand, or Normal as the options appear on the instrument panel display. The system’s preprogrammed algorithms take over from there and do all the thinking in terms of which wheels need power and how much to achieve optimum traction.
