2017 Honda Ridgeline Let Down By One Thing, Its Price

By  | 

The Honda Ridgeline is almost perfect if you are looking for a utility vehicle, we say almost as there is one thing that does let it down and this is the price tag.

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline has the global truck platform and it also has a lot of what you get if you go for the Honda Pilot. If you are looking for a truck that will haul things around and tow with ease, then you really cannot do much better than the Ridgeline. You get all the benefits of the Pilot with the addition of a bed.

The engine is the 3.5 litre V6 and this offers 280 horsepower and 262 torque. It offers up the six speed transmission and you can choose to get it in the front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.

So the 2017 Honda Ridgeline really does have a lot to offer but then the price tag is huge and this lets the vehicle down. The entry level version comes in with a price tag in the region of $41, 370 and many people have said that it should be more along the lines of $18,000. Bear in mind that you could go for the F150 Lariat for $43k.

If you look in the dealers for the 2017 Honda Ridgeline you aren’t going to find the entry level version as they generally only offer the upper range. This means you are going to have to pay out even more. The Chevrolet Colorado comes in with roughly the same specs and this is $5k cheaper.
