2017 Honda Ridgeline: Too Expensive To Matter

By  | 

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline offers up a comfortable ride and it is an excellent utility vehicle. However what is killing off the vehicle is the steep price tag.

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline has the global light truck platform and it shares a great deal of the structure of the Honda Pilot. However it is a superb choice for towing and hauling. You could say that it is a Pilot with a bed and not the cargo area that is covered.

It comes with the V6 3.5 litre engine offering 280 horses and 262 of torque by way of a six speed automatic transmission and it comes in all-wheel drive or front-wheel drive.

While it does have a lot in its favour what is off-putting to consumers is that it comes in with a price tag of $41, 370 and this is the base price. People have said that they would be interested in purchasing the 2017 Honda Ridgeline if it came with a price tag in the region of $18,000, but for just a little over $43k they could get themselves an F150 Lariat.

Some consumers have also pointed out that the dealerships only stock the upper levels of the Honda Ridgeline and these come with even higher price tags. People have also pointed out that you can get a Chevrolet Colorado that comes with similar specs to the Ridgeline for $5k less.

But what do you think about the price tag of the 2017 Honda Ridgeline? Is it worth $41k?
