I hauled gear in the 2017 Honda Ridgeline across six states, drove it through ice and snow, chased a dually on rural backroads and generally did everything you would do with a truck short of tow with it—and my coworker David already did that. I mean to say that I can affirm that the Honda Ridgeline works as a truck.…
The 2017 Honda Ridgeline is very different from your typical mid-size pickup, making many wonder if the Pilot With A Truck Bed is “a real truck.” Well, I just loaded the Honda to near its max trailer rating and drove over the Appalachians with a classic Ford Mustang in tow. The Ridgeline kicked ass. That “real truck”…
Nobody expected the 2017 Honda Ridgeline to be a hardcore off-roader. It simply lacks the low gearing and solid axles typically suited to crushing rocks. But Honda’s new pickup still holds its own over rough terrain, and here’s how. Call it “better off-roading through science.”
Honda announced a second-generation Ridgeline at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, and revealed the finalized design a year later. This week we finally get to test, drive, and apparently even “off-road” it for ourselves. Get your questions in now!
Among reasons to build a front-wheel drive, unibody pickup is fuel economy, so you’d expect the new Honda Ridgeline to conquer its truck competition without breaking a sweat. But now the Pilot-based truck’s fuel economy numbers are in, and they further highlight the trouble with the mid-size truck segment.
Like many of you, I watched with glee as Honda revealed the new Ridgeline earlier this week at the Detroit Auto Show. It’s handsome, I thought. It’s practical. It’s well equipped. It has a nifty little storage area that’s perfect for a) tailgaters and b) human traffickers. As David Tracy said, it’s all the truck most…
After two years of teasers we’ve finally met the 2017 Honda Ridgeline. We don’t have every detail yet, but I have learned that the bed is 64 inches long making it just a little bigger than the standard bed in a four-door Toyota Tacoma, Nissan Frontier or Chevy Colorado.
We won’t get to drive the new 2017 Honda Ridgeline for a while, but what we can do is give you, our beloved readers, a review of the in-bed trunk. It’s marvelous.
The second generation Honda Ridgeline we’ve been hearing about for almost two years now will finally be revealed at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show. Specifically, January 11th at 1:15 p.m. EST.
Honda is returning to off-road racing at the Baja 1000 next month, and will bring their off-road rig to the SEMA show in a little over a week. That means we’ll finally get to peep at least a strong hint of the styling on the production 2017 Honda Ridgeline very soon.
