2017 Honda Ridgeline Driveway

Blending workhorse towing capacity with a car-like drive, next-level safety features, and high-end comforts, few trucks have reinvented driver expectations like the 2017 Honda Ridgeline. From the most innovative bed in the market to the power necessary for Best-in-Class capability, the Honda Ridgeline stands alone.

Here’s just a quick overview of what it can accomplish.

How Much Can the Honda Ridgeline Tow?

Each 2017 Honda Ridgeline draws its impressive towing capacity from a 3.5L direct-injected i-VTEC V6 engine, which is able to put up to 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque under your control. All told, you’ll be able to tow up to 3,500 lbs. in FWD or a staggering 5,000 lbs. in AWD.

How Much Can the Ridgeline Haul?

Honda engineers were clearly allowed to go right back to basics with the bed of the Ridgeline, and the final result is exceptional. Unit-body construction has molded the body and chassis from a single unit to improve structural rigidity, so you can expect to stack the bed heavy thanks to a Best-in-Class 1,584 lbs. maximum payload. The bed was even designed with minimal wheel well housings, so space won’t be an issue.

2017 Honda Ridgeline Towing and Hauling Highlights

The towing and hauling capabilities of the 2017 Honda Ridgeline are dramatically underscored by the available i-VTM4 AWD system, which can adjust torque at a moment’s notice to ensure stable performance across challenging terrain or during harsh weather conditions. It comes as standard with Intelligent Traction Management, providing modes for Normal, Snow, Mud, and Sand terrain types.

And the bed itself plays host to a score of creative breakthroughs, including:

  • Available 150W/400W Trunk-Bed Outlet to plug in anything from TVs to power tools.
  • Lockable 7.3 cubic foot in-bed trunk, with drain plug included when you need an on-the-go cooler or a place for wet gear.
  • Industry-First Truck Bed Audio System controlled via Bluetooth or from the cabin.
  • Industry-First Dual-Action Tailgate that can be dropped down as usual or swung open from the side.
