2017 Honda Ridgeline

Honda is returning to the midsize pickup market with a slim looking 2nd-generation Ridgeline. Honda plans to reach annual volumes of around 50,000 cars, estimating that 20 percent of Honda owners also have a truck in their garage. But if Honda does not meet the demand it could face capacity constraints because the Ridgeline will be built at the same Alabama plant that is currently occupied by the Pilot. Ridgeline has to meet some tough competitors: Nissan Frontier, Toyota Tacoma, Chevy Colorado, GMC Canyon. With the unique truck design, it does have some weaknesses like low ground clearance. Here are some known specifications:

Engine – 3.5-liter, V-6 engine, 6-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard on all but the highest trims; all-wheel drive is a $1,800 option.

Technology – Optional 8-inch touch screen with navigation and real-time traffic updates, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, Apple’s Siri Eyes Free voice commands

Safety – 6 airbags, standard backup camera, optional blind-spot monitoring, pre-collision warning and braking, lane-keeping assist, rear cross-traffic monitor
