The 2017 Honda Ridgeline takes a large departure from the previous generation. It has a more squared off jaw, more upright cab, and a boxy cargo bed. Its resemblance to the 2017 Honda Pilot are uncanny, though not exact. The next Honda Ridgeline 2017 has four doors and it is quite similar in design with the older L200 as far as the rear end goes. Up front, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline has a very squarish lower fascia that houses turn signals, fog lights, and a lower air inlet. The main grille has the large Honda symbol with plenty of chrome accents running along the top and into the headlights, which are projector beam and feature LED daytime running lights.
The new model plans to employ a 5 seat arrangement, diligently placed such that you can’t possibly tell if it’s a 5 seater when viewing it from the outside. That goes without mentioning the generous legroom and interior spacing that makes it one of the most comfortable trucks on the waiting. As standard it will come with air conditioning, electric windows, seats and mirrors as well as with a decent 6 speaker audio system.
