2017 Honda Ridgeline is a midsize pickup in a crossover body

The Ridgeline is back for 2017 at a time when the midsize pickup segment is resurgent. Using the architecture of the car-based Pilot crossover, the redesigned Ridgeline has lost its unique styling, which was characterized by boxy fender flares and the “flying buttresses” behind the cab. The 2017 looks more like a Pilot than a pickup.


But the 3.5-liter was about the smoothest and quietest V-6 on and off the interstate, with ample power for passing on two-lane roads.

Suspension settings offer a very smooth ride without wallowing in corners, helped by torque vectoring all-wheel drive that changes the speed of individual wheels as needed. Substantial 18-inch tires looked appropriately trucklike and had the added benefit of being wide enough to offer some protection from curbing the painted and polished alloy wheels.


Ridgeline doesn’t break any new ground over the previous iteration as far as the outdoor cargo area goes. The formula is pretty good, though. The best thing about it is the generous underfloor trunk. It’s well sealed, well lit, washable, lockable (with a key or the fob) and hidden within the bed floor. The Pilot has the spare outside under the vehicle, whereas the doughnut spare and jack are out of the weather in the hidden trunk of the Ridgeline.
