After a long period of time Honda Ridgeline makes a return for the 2017 model year. The new model comes completely redesigned as the 2017 Honda Ridgeline.
Exterior and interior design
The new generation of Honda’s pickup model is coming with complete redesign. What we can expect is to see some new standards in the class of mid-size pickup truck models. The new 2017 Honda Ridgeline will have more sporting exterior design. Exterior redesign will bring Ridgeline 2017-series more robust and modern style. The new 2017 Honda Ridgeline will get more traditional pickup profile. New model will have longer and flatter hood. The tailgate will be divided into two parts, and the new 2017 Honda Ridgeline is on its way to the new unibody platform. The suspension will be 4×2 and 4×4, although so far it has been available only as a 4×4. When we talk about the interior of the new vehicle, we will surely notice a lot more space, especially for the legs. Interior of the truck comes luxuriously equipped and sophisticated, but at the same time it will keep its sporty look. The 2017 Honda Ridgeline will come with a wide range of high-technology features. Some of these features will be: hands-free calling, USB port, Bluetooth connection, updated satellite navigating, safety belt, air bags, auto vehicle parking aid, and other safety options. The rear seats will have a 60/40 split and lift up to allow more storage floor like in the previous model.
