Take a Sneak Peek at the 2017 Honda Ridgeline | Luther Mankato Honda

Honda is taking a second crack at the Honda Ridgeline, the head-turning one-frame truck. It will boast a more conventional/crossover silhouette, a nice change from its predecessor. 

Luther Mankato Honda, your top new Honda dealer near New Ulm, MN, is excited to sit behind the wheel of the new Ridgeline. Thanks to Car and Driver, we have a sneak peak at the exterior and performance features. Check out the most notable features below. 

You probably remember the first generation Honda Ridgeline for having a flying buttress design and a blended pickup and a crossover unibody. The new Ridgeline drops this design and will sport a more conventional design.

Honda senior vice president and general manager said the new design better fits the needs of truck drivers.

“We developed this new Honda Ridgeline to offer something new and fundamentally better suited to the way many buyers use their truck,” he said. “Ridgeline will deliver everything you’d expect in a Honda, from incredible packaging and fuel-efficiency, to top safety technologies and innovative, segment-first features.” 

Notable new features include a small window behind the four-door cabin, and lighting in the bed walls. It also seems that it may provide a longer bed and more spacious cabin. 

Under the Hood
The new Ridgeline is similar to the 2016 Honda Pilot under the hood. It will have a direct-injected 3.5-liter V-6 engine and 9-speed automatic, as well as a four-wheel drive system. Sources anticipate it to have the Pilot’s horsepower of 300. 

We can expect the new Ridgeline to be for sale at Luther Mankato Honda in late 2016, and be unveiled at the 2016 Detroit auto show. Commercials for the Ridgeline are scheduled for the 2016 Super Bowl.
