Interior

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline interior design is clean and classy for a truck. I am not a truck lover, but testing 2017 Ridgeline made me change my mind. The 2017 Honda Ridgeline design offers new levels of premium quality, convenience and user-friendly technology in spacious, versatile package. The new 2017 Honda Ridgeline reaches higher into the premium end of the truck market with major upgrades to interior quality. It is the perfect mix between a pickup truck and a nice sedan.

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline has more premium features than ever before, including available heated front seats and a heated steering wheel. I am not a “memory seating” lover, but I appreciate that all this features are offered as a standard equipment on the new line-topping Honda Ridgeline RTL-E.

Technology

The 2017 Ridgeline incorporates the latest car technology, including Pandora and both Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® compatibility. All Honda Ridgeline trims feature includes comfortable five-passenger seating. The three-person second-row seating offers spacious under seat storage. The storage can be quickly flipped vertically to convert fully to cargo mode.

 

The instrument panel is highlighted by striking new high-contrast instrumentation, a 4.2-inch full-color Multi-Information Display (MID) and an available 8-inch Display Audio touchscreen.

Bottom Line

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline AWD RTL-E is a great pickup truck that is unlike any other truck out there. It continues the tradition of something very different in the midsize truck segment. This is a good choice for those who are looking for a heavy duty work vehicle with good characteristics but also like the interior feeling of a sedan, with safety features on the road and great details.
