2017 Honda Ridgeline: High Price To Pay For Insane Options

By  | 

With the introduction of 2017 Ridgeline Pickup that debuted at the recent Detroit Auto Show, Honda sure is desperately 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.

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, something that we didn’t see coming.

Back to the insane tailgate option, 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?

    $42,000? Nope. But in the high $30’s, absolutely. They say they are targeting older folks, so where are Acura’s LED headlights? It needs to tow 6,000 lbs. for me to consider buying it. But after test driving the GMC Canyon (lousy driver’s seat adjustments), no his & her AC controls, no LED headlights) and the new Tacoma (terrible driver’s seat, no LED headlights), this truck may fall short of what I need.

    The positives are good gas mileage and Honda dependability. May have to wait for the 2019 mid-cycle body update.

    I’ve owned 2 Ridgelines in the past and they are great vehicles. I’m waiting for them to become available, but I will not pay over $35000 if I can help it.
