2017 Honda Ridgeline at Gillman Honda San Antonio

The Honda Ridgeline sport utility truck was unusual when it first appeared on the roads around San Antonio in 2006. As it so often does, Honda decided to throw the rulebook out the window, trading tradition for innovation and practicality. The resulting vehicle, which sold from 2006-2014, retains enough of a cult following that when the company debuted a Ridgeline Baja Race Truck at the 2015 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show, hopes were raised. SEMA tends to be where manufacturers show one-off and experimental models that might never make their way to the public, but a commercial aired during the Super Bowl just months later -- featuring a farmer, a sheepdog, and a herd of singing sheep - that heralded the arrival of the 2017 Honda Ridgeline. It's returning to active duty, and to the Gillman Honda San Antonio showroom, after a three-year absence.

2017 Honda Ridgeline: Technical Specifications

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline comes in seven trim levels: the Honda Ridgeline RT, RTS, Sport, RTL, RTL-T, RTL-E, and Honda Ridgeline Black Edition. Under the hood, all trim levels share a direct-injected 280 horsepower i-VTEC® V-6 engine. Common standard features include a 60/40 rear seat that lifts up for additional storage, pushbutton start, Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® and Streaming Audio, truck bed lights, a multi-angle rearview camera, and the Honda Eco-Assist™ System. Options* on select trim levels include an upgraded 8-inch display, HondaLink®, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, HD Radio, and Honda Sensing.

2017 Honda Ridgeline: New Features

Much of the front half of the 2017 Honda Ridgeline will be familiar to anyone who's seen a Honda Pilot-- the grille is changed, but the outline is still very much the same. The back half is longer and wider than the first-generation Ridgeline, making the box more versatile than it was before. Like its predecessor, it uses unibody construction, but it's a new platform based on the Honda ACE structure. Our favorite new feature, however, is the truck-bed audio system, which turns the bed of the RTL-E and Black Edition trims into an immense speaker system when connected to an audio source or Bluetooth-enabled device.

2017 Honda Ridgeline: Legacy Features

While there are many changes in the new generation Honda Ridgeline, some of the first generation's most interesting features have carried over to the 2017 model. The exclusive dual-action tailgate can open sideways like a door, or fold down like a conventional tailgate. The in-bed trunk allows for added storage without interfering with the useable space in the bed, so you can stow tools in the trunk and leave the bed free for construction materials or larger equipment. It also includes a drain plug so it can double as a cooler to help keep your crew hydrated, and it comes in handy for tailgating as well. The 60/40 split folding rear seats give you even more storage for bulky items you want to shield from the elements.

2017 Honda Ridgeline at Gillman Honda

When the Honda Ridgeline was discontinued in 2014, we were sad to see it go. With the 2017 Honda Ridgeline, it's clear that Honda isn't just trading on the Ridgeline name and the goodwill that goes with it. They've introduced a light truck that might look a bit more conventional than it did the last time out, but that still packs plenty of innovation between the bumpers. We can't wait to see it on our lot again. If you'd like to find out more, call or contact us. And if you'd like to see the rest of the 2016 Honda lineup, like the newly redesigned 2016 Honda Civic, come to our showroom at 16044 I-35 North in Selma, TX today!
