Introduction

The all-new 2017 Honda Ridgeline is a unique pickup.

Unique is a word that suffers a lot of misuse in the automotive lexicon. For example, we hear the term “very unique” in connection with some rarefied vehicle. But the fact is the word is absolute, referring to something that’s one of a kind.

Thus, in the world of pickup trucks, unique can only be used in connection with the Honda Ridgeline. Returning from the brink of extinction, it’s the only unitbody pickup in the business: the chassis is integrated with the body. All the others are body-on-frame: the chassis and body are worked up separately, and meet late in the assembly process.

The distinction is important, for two key reasons. First, though traditional body-on-frame vehicles are rugged and capable of absorbing more punishment, as in off-road, heavy hauling or heavy towing, unitbodies generally have a higher chassis rigidity index. That was true of the first-generation Ridgeline, and the 2017 redesign is even stiffer, with a 28 percent increase in torsional rigidity, according to Honda.

Second, a unitbody will be considerably lighter than its body-on-frame counterpart of similar size. That’s why all contemporary passenger cars are unitbodies.

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline shares much of its structural foundation with the latest Honda Pilot SUV, as well as its 3.5-liter V6 engine and 6-speed automatic transmission. The Ridgeline chassis is based on front-wheel drive, with the option of all-wheel drive.

The 2017 Ridgeline offers more power on tap than in the previous generation: 280 horsepower, 262 pound-feet of torque.

Fuel economy improves as well, and Honda claims best-in-class for this: 19 mpg City, 26 Highway with front-wheel drive, according to the EPA, 18/25 mpg City/Highway with all-wheel drive. Best-in-class is a little misleading, however, since it applies to competing V6 trucks. It ignores four-cylinder gasoline engines, as well as the GM diesels, which are projected to achieve 21 mpg in the city, 30 mpg on the highway.

The 2017 Ridgeline is bigger than the first generation. More cargo bed capacity, with room between the fender wells for a 4 x 8 slab of building material. Higher payload rating: 1584 pounds. And the roomiest interior in its class, according to Honda.

This second-generation Ridgeline retains two popular features that distinguished the original: the two-way tailgate and the in-bed lockable trunk. And it adds new tweaks, including one sure to score with tailgate party aficianados: available speakers in the cargo bed walls.

Lineup

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline comes in a broad variety of trim levels. Among them: Ridgeline RT ($29,475); RTS ($31,515); Sport ($33,015); RTL ($33,780); RTL-T ($35,930); and RTL-E ($41,370). All-wheel drive is optional. (All prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge ($900).

Walkaround

As noted, this is a bigger Ridgeline. Overall length (210 inches) and wheelbase (125.3 inches) have both stretched 3 inches, and the cargo bed has gained 4 inches in length, to 64.

But the element that’s really striking is the styling. The original Ridgeline was unique and looked unique, unlike any of its compact competitors, or for that matter any pickup truck, great or small. This resonated well with some buyers, but not nearly enough of them.

Consequently, the new Ridgeline, though unique in terms of architecture, looks much more like a conventional pickup. The front end has a more traditional pickup look, and includes the option of LED lighting, but the biggest change is amidships. The flying buttresses descending from the roof of the cabin partway down the cargo bed rails are gone, and the new cab looks pretty much like any other pickup.

As before, the Ridgeline is offered in a four-door crew cab body style. And as before, it includes the two-way tailgate, side-hinged and bottom hinged, very handy, and the voluminous, lockable in-bed trunk, even handier. A set of 18-inch wheels joins the inventory, a 400-watt power inverter allows owners the option of setting up a big screen TV in the bed of the truck, and as noted earlier there’s the option of a sextet of speakers integrated in the cargo bed walls.

Properly equipped, the Ridgeline is the ultimate tailgate party special.

Interior

Roominess is the trump card of a vehicle’s comfort quotient, and the Ridgeline has it double in spades. The Ridgeline is crew cab only, no regular or extended cab versions, and the rear seats provide abundant space (knee, head, hip) for three passengers. And with the seats folded, rear cargo space is best in class, according to Honda.

The Ridgeline’s controls are straightforward, attractive, and generally easy to employ without resorting to the owner’s manual. An exception might be the touch controls on the big center dash screen; Honda appears to have developed a phobia against even the simplest of switches and/or knobs, even for audio adjustment. On the other hand, the new nav system is much easier to operate, the display screen is large, as are the various icons, and the infotainment and connectivity options, which now include the choice of Apple Car Play or Android Auto, are contemporary.

Contemporary also applies to safety features, with available adaptive cruise control, autonomous emergency braking, and lane departure warning and lane assist, among others. However, the lane departure feature is a little too eager to assert itself, jiggling the steering wheel when the truck even gets close to a lane edge line.

Back on the positive side of the score sheet, interior materials are high quality, the relaxed fit front bucket seats are all day comfortable, and audio systems range from good to excellent.

Driving Impressions

Light duty pickups, such as the Ford F-150, Ram 1500, and Chevy Silverado, are becoming more and more civilized. Nevertheless, in terms of ride quality, quiet operation, and general comfort the Ridgeline stands at the top of the charts. This is a very smooth operator, composed and compliant on all surfaces, paved or graded gravel.

Could the steering have a little more weight and/or convey a little more information to the driver? Yes. But aside from that, dynamic demerits are hard to find. And the steering criticism applies to any pickup you care to name.

The structure feels exceptionally solid, and the suspension tuning is a little firmer than on the mechanically similar Pilot. This is due in part to spring rates specified to handle 1500-pound payloads, but it doesn’t diminish the Ridgeline’s ride.

All-wheel drive Ridgelines include torque vectoring at the rear axle, lending stability in low traction situations.

Power is respectable, though it can’t be called thrilling. At some 4500 pounds, the second generation Ridgeline is heavier than the original. Also, the towing capacity, 5000 pounds with all-wheel drive, 3500 pounds for front-drivers, is near the bottom of the list of midsize pickup ranks.

If towing is a priority, GM’s new middies, Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon, both offer the option of diesel power.

If it’s not, the Ridgeline rates top marks in every other area of operation.

Summary

In a world of pickup refinement, the new Ridgeline raises the bar. Regarded as yesterday’s news when it went out of production in 2014, it’s been resurrected, reengineered and, perhaps most important, restyled. It’s a remarkable blend of engineering and imagination, a pickup truck that’s equally adept at truckish tasks or everyday transportation. The midsize pickup class is making a comeback. And this truck is leading the charge.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
