2017 Honda Ridgeline: Crazy Options Cost You A Fortune

By  | 

Everyone paid attention to the 2017 Honda Ridgeline and that’s exactly what Honda wanted – even if it means for them to be critiqued later on. You would feel their desperation in wanting you to buy yourself one of the Ridgelines. As much as it has garner much attention during the show, Honda decided to up the game with the ultimate tailgate party platform option.

Short story, for 2017 Honda presents a Ridgeline pickup with unparalleled interior comfort, highway road manors, exceptional active and passive safety features as well as the largest cab and widest truck bed in the midsize truck segment. And then there’s the personal connectivity and entertainment side of Ridgeline, and when you think that the truck has got it all, there’s something that we didn’t see coming.

That’s where the insane tailgate option comes into picture and, here’s what you have to know. For 2017, Honda fans willing to write the check can opt for a bed-wall-integrated 600 watt stereo system. Need more power? Look to Ridgeline’s available 400 watt power inverter for 110 volt power tool, drink blending and game side flat screen television powering requirements. Combine this with Ridgelines ultimate ice chest, the hidden trunk, and let the ultimate tailgate party or camping trip begin.

Now, would you consider buying yourself a Ridgeline if it’s priced at the $42,000 mark (which is a combination of the MPG of 24+ and a base MSRP shadowing Pilot’s $30,145, along with a fully-loaded 4WD Elite)?

    No, at 42,000 I am not even going to consider this vehicle. I would like to get one. I’ve been following the release info. My first car was a civic, my current car is almost 12 years old, and I’m a physician so in theory I should be able to afford this, but that is just too much.

    Agree. No.
    I bought and returned the 2016 Toyota Tacoma as it was a big let down after having waited for the new release.
    I am hoping the Ridgeline meets my expectations, not only on MPG, ergonomics, feautures, but on price.
    It will be a losing position to price themselves out of a market.
    Time will tell.
