2017 Honda Ridgeline Buyers Don’t Get Much Choice
The Honda Ridgeline sold around 4,000 units while some of the competition sells around 10,000 units each month. One reason could be down to the fact that buyers of the Ridgeline are not offered that much by way of choice, they simply have to pay $29, 500 or not.
There is no choice with the Honda Ridgeline about a short or long bed and there isn’t a choice of cab configuration.
The Honda Ridgeline is offered with the same four doors as the Honda Pilot and the cabin is just about the same as the three row SUV.
There is no choice of engine as the engine in the Honda Ridgeline is the same as that of the Pilot and this is the V6 2.5 litre which offers up 280 horses along with 262 torque. The Ridgeline is offered with the nine speed automatic transmission though and not the six speed automatic.
Buyers of the Honda Ridgeline can choose to lose some of the smaller features if they don’t want to pay out $40,000.
This includes the larger infotainment system, leather seating, keyless entry and more. One of the biggest add-ons is the bed audio system which comes with bed walls that act as the speakers.
One of the biggest things that Honda promoted about the Honda Ridgeline in a Super Bowl ad is the audio system.
