After ten years, Honda is bringing back this midsize pickup. New 2017 Honda Ridgeline will soon be ready to make its debut and hopefully win some new fans.
EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR
Although we should not expect any major changes, some nice improvements will be evident, both on the exterior and on the interior of the new model. Honda will use lightweight materials in order to reduce the weight of the new Ridgeline and therefore improve its fuel economy and overall performance. The exterior of the new model will have a fresher look with many stylish accents. Both headlights and taillights will be redesigned and equipped with the LED technology. Daytime running lights and fog lights will provide better visibility for the driver. Redesigned grille with company’s logo placed in the middle will give the front side of the vehicle a more attractive look. A lot more changes and modern design will be seen on the interior of the new 2017 Honda Ridgeline. New model will be able to accommodate up to five passengers. Comparing to its predecessor, the cabin will provide more leg room and head room, contributing to a more comfortable ride. Next to this, we can expect to see a lot of high-tech features that will make the new model more user-friendly and improve the safety of the vehicle.
