2017 Honda Ridgeline: So Boring But Not

By  | 

We’ve heard that although the 2017 Honda Ridgeline has garnered quite a large amount of attention and criticisms alike (we personally think this way too), it’s actually a not-bad truck.

Sure, the design of the car can be slightly unappealing and bland, and you could even say “boring”. But in contrast to what we personally feel, you could actually like it for what is is. Apparently, it seems to be unmatched with anything on the road today, and here’s why. We’ve heard that Honda claims the Ridgeline to be the quickest, most fuel-efficient pickup in the segment (although it’s unclear if the Colorado and Canyon are put into the mix too).

The Ridgeline is also first in line to come standard as a front-wheel-drive vehicle, with an all-wheel-drive version also available, whereby both of them would have fully-independent suspension and are also powered by a 3.5-litre V6 engine. Although it has undeniably shed off the unique flying buttress profile it replaces, it’s still deemed to be built on a car-like platform shared with the latest bland (sorry) Honda Pilot.

Moreover, Honda says the Ridgeline has the best in-class interior room, a 60/40 folding rear seat, tri-zone climate control, and even an infotainment system integrated with both the Apple Car Play and Android Auto, just to name a few. So, are you still disliking it now?
