2017 Honda Ridgeline Performance & Capabilities
We know we’ve been speaking about the 2017 Honda Ridgeline quite a lot lately, but after the huge release of details surrounding the upcoming truck we’re excited to fill you in on all the new details. And until new info about the Civic Hatchback or any other 2017 models is announced, the Ridgeline is the most exciting vehicle we know about thus far, aside from perhaps the 2017 Accord Hybrid. So today, we thought we’d focus on something a little more specific, by taking a closer look at the 2017 Honda Ridgeline performance & capabilities.

The first thing to consider when talking about things like performance specs or a truck’s capabilities is, of course, its powertrain. As you may know by now, the Ridgeline will be powered by brand-new 3.5L V6 engine that is packed with features and technologies to deliver optimum performance. These features include things like Intelligent Variable Valve Timing, Lift Electronic Control, Variable Cylinder Management and Maintenance Minder. These features, and more, make sure that the truck delivers the best performance & capabilities, and that it remains in great shape for as long as possible.
Performance and Capability Specs & Features
Aside from the engine, the all-new Ridgeline features plenty of other new, enhanced performance features. A new 6-speed automatic transmission insures smooth transitions as you drive, while the most advanced all-wheel-drive system in the midsize truck segment insures great handling on and off the road. If you’re worried that the truck will hold up through harsh Canadian winters, then fear not because the new Intelligent Traction Management system allows drivers to optimize the driving experience for the right road conditions. A push-button control system lets the driver choose from Normal, Snow, Mud and Sand.
These features only touch the surface of the truck, as there are plenty of other specs and features that enhance the truck’s capabilities. Towing and hauling will be better than ever before, but great features like the dual-action tailgate remain to enhance the Ridgeline’s versatility. We can hardly express how ecstatic we are to offer the 2017 Honda Ridgeline to all of you once it becomes available, and we likely aren’t yet done filling you in on how great it is.
