Honda Ridgeline
Honda took the wraps off an all-new Ridgeline pickup truck at this year’s auto extravaganza in Detroit. Remaining unique in the truck market with unibody construction, the Ridgeline carries over a number of features that stand out now as much as they did at the truck’s introduction 10 years ago, including the in-bed storage trunk and dual-action tailgate — which is both left- and bottom-hinged. The Honda of pickup trucks now gets the industry’s first in-bed audio system, making the Ridgeline an excellent option for a tailgate party. The bed is wider and longer than the previous generation; with 48 inches between the wheel wells, Ridgeline can handle the obligatory 4X8 sheet of plywood, laid flat. The 2017 Ridgeline will be powered by the same 3.5-liter V6 engine found in the new Pilot. Although horsepower specs have not been released, output will likely be similar to the 280 horsepower found in the Pilot.
