2017 Honda Ridgeline Fuel Economy Rumors
The first big Honda announcement for the 2017 model year was of course the unveiling of the second-generation Honda Ridgeline. The midsize truck made waves when it was first introduced back in 2006, and now just over a decade later and after a couple of years on the bench, it’s back and better than ever. While Honda has been holding its cards close to the chest thus far, we’ve heard some rumors that the U.S. government agencies in charge of determining fuel economy ratings have released what the truck will offer, thus creating some almost-confirmed 2017 Honda Ridgeline fuel economy rumors.

What might the fuel efficiency of the 2017 Honda Ridgeline be?
It would seem as though Honda has accomplished its goals of delivering the best fuel economy in its class, if the rumors on the internet happen to be true. The report we’ve read says that the front-wheel drive 2017 Honda Ridgeline will deliver 12.4 l/100km through the city and 9.0 l/100km on the highway. With all-wheel drive things get bumped down a bit but not by much, achieving 13.1 l/100km city and 9.4 l/100km highway.
Those numbers are certainly better than the last Honda Ridgeline, and better than its closest competitor the Toyota Tacoma, which delivers 13.1 l/100km through city streets and 10.2 l/100km on the highway, less than both the FWD and AWD efficiencies of the 2017 Honda Ridgeline. The Chevy Colorado is trumped as well, as it can only muster 13.8 l/100km in the city and 9.8 l/100km on the highway.
We still don’t have any information on the other specs & features, though we do assume that these fuel economy rumors are accurate, though we can’t guarantee their validity. We’ll keep an ear to the ground and keep updating you with any more information that we can gather about the all-new 2017 Honda Ridgeline, but until then there are plenty of other new Honda vehicles to check out.
