As its Japanese competitors from Nissan, who recently launched the Titan, Honda wants a slice from the US pick-up segment. So it used the Detroit Motor Show 2016 to showcase the new 2017 Ridgeline truck. Designed, developed and manufactured in America, the new Ridgeline will launch in the first half of 2016.

The most important changes will be noticeable underneath the car, where we have a unibody construction, sophisticated chassis, and available i-VTM4 torque-vectoring AWD system. The handling, ride quality, cabin quietness and all-weather traction capabilities are a direct result. The new Ridgeline is based on Honda's Global Light Truck platform and has 

The 2017 Ridgeline has the largest and most versatile cabin and the only 4-foot-wide flat bed space in the midsize pickup segment. Exclusive features, include an In-Bed Trunk, dual-action tailgate and the industry's first in-bed audio system. 

The Ridgeline will be powered by a 3.5-liter, direct-injected i-VTEC V6 engine mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission.

The Ridgeline also will be available for the first time in history both front-wheel and all-wheel-drive configurations. All-wheel-drive models will utilize Honda's i-VTM4 torque vectoring AWD technology, featuring Intelligent Terrain Management with Normal, Sand, Snow and Mud modes.

The Ridgeline bed offers pickup users unmatched versatility in a midsize 4-door pickup. At 5' wide and 5'4" long (5.4 inches wider and 4 inches longer than the previous generation Ridgeline), the 2017 Honda Ridgeline has the only 4-foot wide flat bed space (with 48 inches between the rear wheel arches) in the midsize pickup class, allowing for flat hauling of items like plywood sheeting or drywall. The Ridgeline will also offer payload capacity.
