Honda Ridgeline has been a name in Honda's portfolio since 2006. However, the year 2017 marks Ridgeline come back after being off the company's brochures for 2 years. The Honda Ridgeline is unique in more ways than one. Firstly it underpins a unibody structure, which in itself is a seldom-used platform in the case of pickup trucks. Secondly, the Honda Ridgeline comes with a cabin that's every bit as comfort-oriented as a crossover.

My Ridgeline!

Pros - Smooth powertrain. Clever storage. Tech features.

Cons - Tow rating. Off-road prowess. Doesn't look that great.

The pickup best suited for families! The Ridgeline has been the perfect family getaway truck that I always wanted. There's quite a lot of things to like for a family man like me. The cabin is quite spacious for a crew cab offering lot of cubbies spaces throughout the cabin. The rear seat can be folded too to accomodate long objects. The pickup bed is quite better than the Tacoma or Colorado. It's longer than both and offers good in-bed storage. Plus, on the tech front, it comes equipped with most driver aids and even Android Auto. The Ridgeline has always had a car-like demanor with a ride quality which makes you even forget you're in a crew cab pickup! Had a hassle-free experience of buying this used Ridgeline. The sales staff worked out a best financing option for me considering my credit score. The service team here is also well-versed and experienced. 3 years of being a customer at Annapolis Honda, more to come for sure!

Dependable Pickup

Pros - Powerful engine,large and versatile loading bed,plush interiors,

Cons - Rear seat room,no standard AWD, mediocre transmission performance,

A pickup that is a slight deviation from convention. The Ridgeline is not something that you would call an all out butch and capable truck but is more of a versatile machine for those who use it for personal stuff too.It is a comfortable and less stressed machine that you could cover miles on while being guaranteed one of the best dependability. It does whatever you ask it to and the loading bed is pretty large too. I use this truck to take my tools to the workshop and also drop off my children at school. This kind of variability in usage is one of the main reasons I went for the ridgeline instead of a ballsy one. Started from just a call and ended up in the purchase in a couple of days. Thumps up to them and their team.

The ridgeline sport for your daily needs

Pros - Great looks, the bed is sturdy and rust proof, can fit much building materials in the bed

Cons - Could have upgraded to leather upholstery

nice power and design aspects. The ridgeline's driveability is great, the body rolls are minimal and I found the interior to be very bland in general with average materials. However, I really like the space the suspension feels worth the money. for rear passengers to be great.

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline offers a standard front-wheel-drive configuration in all its trims, except for the top RTL-E and Black Edition trims, which get a 4WD configuration as standard. However, the company also offers the option of upgrading the FWD drivetrain on lower trims to a 4WD configuration for an additional cost.

2017 Honda Ridgeline Crew Cab Buying Advice

We recommend you go for the RTL-T trim as this trim adds in a number of features such as an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment display, Honda satellite navigation, and many other features to up the premium appeal of your Honda Ridgeline. Moreover, the RTL-T trim offers all of these premium features at a fair price gap from the base RT trim. 

2017 Honda Ridgeline Engine and Performance

9.0/10

The Honda Ridgeline has been running on the same engine ever since it was first launched in 2006. The 2017 Honda Ridgeline houses a 3.5L naturally aspirated V6 engine that is good for 280 hp and a peak torque of 262 lb.-ft, which kicks in at 4700 rpm. 

The Honda Ridgeline's 3.5L V6 engine is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission that routes all the power to the truck's front wheels, until you upgrade to the 4WD setup or either go for a trim that gets a 4WD drivetrain as standard. We seriously recommend you to upgrade your Ridgeline to the optional 4WD drivetrain as driving a front-wheel-drive pickup makes just as much sense as Jesse Pinkman's puns.

The Honda Ridgeline is comparatively a pretty expensive option in the pickup truck segment. The amount of money you'll shell out to procure the base trim of the 2017 Honda Ridgeline can lend you some pretty premium trims of the rivals stated above. When compared, the GM twins offer the best power and torque figures on the table. 

2017 Honda Ridgeline Crew Cab Acceleration

Pickups are not made for run chases in movies, rather they become a part of Country singer’s music videos where they work and chill on the truck. The 2017 Honda Ridgeline accelerates from 0-60 mph in a matter of 7.3 seconds, which really is not a very respectable figure when seen with the segment standards. The Honda Ridgeline's potency is good enough to provide a smooth curve to achieve reasonable speeds, yet it is barely good enough to let the Ridgeline overtake speeding traffic out on the freeway.

Speaking of the quarter-mile fixture, well the Honda Ridgeline clocks in the quarter-mile lap in 157.7 seconds at a speed of 89.1 mph. The quarter-mile figure for the 2017 Honda Ridgeline is much better than the 0-60 figure, as it's able to close in the gap from the competitors such as the Chevrolet Colorado LT and GMC Canyon.

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline gets a competitive engine, yet the American offerings such as the Colorado and GMC Canyon are able to churn out a lot more power from a similar engine. The Chevrolet Colorado LT and the GMC Canyon SLE post the most handsome set of sprinting figures in the segment. However, these trucks get a more restrictive top speed. Meanwhile, the Honda Ridgeline and the Toyota Tacoma obtain the latter two ranks, yet have greater top speed figures. 

2017 Honda Ridgeline Crew Cab Handling

You may get a chance to criticize the Honda Ridgeline when it comes to sprinting capabilities, but when it comes to the part of ride and handling, the Ridgeline is the absolute rockstar of the segment. The 2017 Honda Ridgeline is a pickup truck, but it handles like a premium crossover. The suspension is great as it has a four-wheel independent suspension. Be it tackling some sharp corners or going for a relaxing cruise on the highway, the Ridgeline is an absolute delight in every situation. 

One of the strongest points of the 2017 Honda Ridgeline is its steering wheel, which is of utmost precise and provides the driver with a great degree of feedback. Apart from this, the truck's stability is commendable with minimal body roll. All this stuff together makes the Ridgeline one of the most fun to drive and engaging pickup trucks. The Honda Ridgeline swears by its refinement and on-road manners. However, the truck is not good for off-road as the ground clearance is low at 8.2 inches and least amongst its competitors.

2017 Honda Ridgeline Crew Cab Braking

Stopping a heavy vehicle is always a tricky task. The greater the weight of the vehicle, the greater is the degree of risk that the vehicle may lose its stability or composure under panic braking. However, the engineers at Honda have done a fine job here, as they've made the process of leashing the 280 ponies of the Ridgeline, a cakewalk. 

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline gets 4-wheel ventilated disc brakes. The pickup truck gets 12.6-inch brake rotors at its front wheels and 13-inches towards the back. Together this setup can make the Honda Ridgeline decelerate from 60-0 mph in a distance of 128 feet, which is indeed a respectable figure in terms of a pickup truck.

The Honda Ridgeline gets the biggest brake rotors in the segment. Moreover, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline comes along with many features such as ABS and EBD to enhance the overall braking capabilities of the vehicle. The braking distance is only available for GMC except Honda, and it manages to perform better by coming to halt from 60 mph in 125 feet.

Towing Capacity

The biggest task for any pickup in the market is to provide the customers a decent towing capacity. Honda has kept this thing in its mind and tried to give Ridgeline a competitive towing capacity to compete with the rivals in the segment. The 2017 Honda Ridgeline offers a towing capacity of 5,000 lbs.

2017 Honda Ridgeline Fuel Economy

8.3/10

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline can spin for 18 miles in the city and can expedite through 25 miles on the highway for every gallon of gasoline you feed it. Summing up these figures, we get a combined mpg of 21, which is the best fuel efficiency figure in the segment. However, things start lagging behind for the 2017 Honda Ridgeline in terms of its fuel storage capacity. The Honda Ridgeline gets a fuel tank capacity of 19.5 gallons, which is the smallest figure in the segment.

The Honda Ridgeline is definitely the most fuel-efficient vehicle in the segment, followed by the Toyota Tacoma, while the homebred pickups post a combined mpg of 17, gaining the last spot in the segment. However, the Honda Ridgeline's smaller fuel tank capacity blurs the pickup's limelight as despite being the most fuel-efficient truck, the Honda Ridgeline gets the poorest overall range, owing to the smaller fuel tank. 

2017 Honda Ridgeline Interior

9.2/10

Pickup trucks are known for their robust appeal as they are made to conquer the toughest of terrains out there. And how a vehicle made to be tough can be comfortable, right? Wrong. The Honda Ridgeline's cabin is a place that can break these beliefs quite easily. The Honda Ridgeline, despite being a pickup, does not compromise on the comfort on offer. 

The passenger space on offer in the 2017 Honda Ridgeline is absolutely commendable. The pickup truck provides ample space for all the passengers, in all directions, at all times. The cabin ergonomics ensure that you munch the maximum number of miles in your Ridgeline and with minimum levels of fatigue. The front seats are very supportive and comfortable with ample cushioning and just the right amount of bolstering.

The quality of materials used inside the cabin is great, and in case you've been in a Honda Pilot before, the Ridgeline's cabin will make you feel at home. The design and layout of the 2017 Honda Ridgeline's dash are really commendable and quite pleasing, as compared to other rivals. 

2017 Honda Ridgeline Crew Cab Infotainment

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline gets two infotainment options - the first one is a 5-inch LCD color display and the second one being an 8-inch touchscreen color display that is made available from the RTL-T trim. Many tech features come standard with the 2017 Honda Ridgeline. Some of the standard infotainment features of the 2017 Honda Ridgeline are:

  • Audio theft deterrent
  • 2 1st row LCD monitor
  • Steering-wheel mounted audio controls
  • Radio data system
  • AM/FM radio
  • Speed sensitive volume
  • Wireless phone connectivity
  • Integrated roof antenna

2017 Honda Ridgeline Exterior

8.2/10

Looks are pretty much a subjective matter, but we'd say that yes, the Honda Ridgeline does look good but in its own very way. The 2017 Honda Ridgeline does not emit the tough or robust appeal that is often associated with pickup trucks. It rather looks like a crossover, with a bed attached at the back of it. 

The large grille on the front along with the headlamps complements the overall character of the car. From the sides, the car looks upright and appealing while at the rear, things remain largely simple with subtle design elements. Speaking of dimensions, the Honda Ridgeline is pretty much a mixed bag.

While the Ridgeline happens to be the widest truck in the segment, which helps it free up more cabin space, it also happens to have the shortest wheelbase in the segment. Unlike all the other competitors, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline offers just a single configuration. Moreover, the Honda Ridgeline also gets the least in class ground clearance, which restricts the truck's off-roading capabilities. Some of the most noteworthy design elements of the 2017 Honda Ridgeline includes:

  • Black door handles
  • Grille with chrome bar
  • Trailer hitch
  • Pickup integrated storage
  • Tailgate w/swing-out rear cargo door
  • Rear step bumper
  • Bedliner
  • Body-colored front and rear bumpers

2017 Honda Ridgeline Safety

7.3/10

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline scores a top 5-star overall rating from NHTSA. Speaking of IIHS, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline bags the Top Safety Pick+ with a "Good" rating in most of the crash tests. Apart from these ratings speaking for the safety, Honda has filled the truck with a variety of active and passive safety features. Some of the most prominent safety features of the 2017 Honda Ridgeline are:

  • Brake assistance
  • Manual adjustable front head restraints
  • Remote keyless entry
  • Side-impact bars

2017 Honda Ridgeline Competition

9.9/10

2017 Honda Ridgeline Crew Cab vs Chevrolet Colorado

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline is without a doubt a comparatively expensive option. The Honda Ridgeline's base trim's cost can get you the Chevrolet Colorado's LT trim. The 2017 Chevrolet Colorado LT gets a 3.6L V6 engine, which is very much similar to the Ridgeline's 3.5L V6, yet it churns out more power, thus lending the Colorado better-sprinting capabilities. The Chevrolet Colorado has better towing and payload capacity than the Honda Ridgeline. However, the Ridgeline scores better than the Colorado in terms of the way it drives, handles, comfort factor, and fuel efficiency. 

2017 Honda Ridgeline Crew Cab vs GMC Canyon

The GMC Canyon is basically a redressed Chevrolet Colorado, with identical powertrain specifications and dimensions. However, the GMC Canyon is one of the most expensive offerings in the segment. The GMC Canyon is a full-blown pickup truck, with humongous dimensions, the heaviest curb weight, and the best in class towing and payload capacities. However, the GMC Canyon is nowhere close to the Ridgeline in terms of comfort and driving dynamics.

2017 Honda Ridgeline Crew Cab vs Toyota Tacoma

The Toyota Tacoma is the most reasonable offering in the segment. The Toyota Tacoma gets a 3.5L V6 engine, which is similar to that of the Honda Ridgeline. However, the Tacoma gets the meekest power figures in the segment, with 278 ponies underneath its hood. The Toyota Tacoma is also the slowest offering in the segment, with a 0-60 acceleration time of 7.5 seconds. The focal difference between the Tacoma and the Ridgeline is of approach. While the Ridgeline prioritizes comfort and road manners, the Tacoma is more inclined towards aggression. 

2017 Honda Ridgeline Final Verdict

The Honda Ridgeline is one hell of a pickup truck that you can buy to be used as a daily driver. The 2017 Honda Ridgeline strikes a fine balance between the utility of a pickup truck and the comfort of a crossover. The Honda Ridgeline is one of the most fun to drive pickup trucks out there, and the enhanced comfort factor is definitely a cherry on top. Yes, the Honda Ridgeline lags behind other rivals in terms of its capabilities as a pickup, but it has a forte of its own, in which it is almost impossible to beat the Ridgeline.
