January 20th, 2017 by

2017 Honda Ridgeline

The North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) opened with a bang this year in Detroit, showcasing the newly redesigned Honda Ridgeline. The new and improved Honda Ridgeline specs helped this vehicle earn the prestigious 2017 North American Truck of the Year Award*. This honor is truly the best of the best in the automotive world, and it represents the second time the Ridgeline has won. Not only is the latest model overflowing with innovations, it’s also designed, engineered, and made in America.

North American Truck of the Year

Vehicles must be superior in every way in order to win the North American Truck of the Year Award. The evaluation categories include design, handling, safety performance, driver satisfaction, overall value, and of course, innovation. Over 50 participating members of the North American automotive media select the recipients of this prestigious award, which is not affiliated with any one publication, website, or other media outlet. Instead, this independent group of American and Canadian journalists collaborates on the decision and presents the award at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

Ridgeline Highlights

The 2017 Ridgeline specs include a number of features not found anywhere else, and many of them come standard. First, it has a unibody construction, which creates a roomier truck. The truck bed is highly resistant to scratches and dents, and it also contains a lockable In-Bed Trunk® with a drain plug. It even has the world’s first available audio system in the truck bed and an option for a 150W/400W outlet, so you can plug tools or a big-screen TV right into the back of the truck. And the dual-action tailgate opens down or to the side, so you can load up whichever way is more convenient for you.

The 2017 Ridgeline is the only pickup truck to ever earn a 2017 Top Safety Pick+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety**, which it achieves when equipped with available LED headlights and front crash prevention system.

Earned, Not Given

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline specs are, in a word, awesome. This vehicle is an absolute picture of innovation and brilliant design, and that’s why it’s the 2017 North American Truck of the Year.
