Completely New Honda Ridgeline Returns Fully Redesigned


The lineup of pickups of the 2017 model year will be replenished with another child of the famous Japanese company. A branch from North America announced the beginning of the serial production of the model Honda Ridgeline of the second generation.

The car will be developed on the basis of the crossover Honda Pilot third generation and will replace the first generation of Ridgeline, which was produced for a long time, from 2005 to 2014. Improved pickup got a load-bearing body, as well as an independent suspension. For this model, this design is very progressive. It provides the car with an excellent level of comfort while driving, even on the most broken roads, and also provides excellent handling.

Better Looking

Since the crossover Pilot was taken as a basis, the new generation of the car received an original appearance. Frontal headlights have acquired non-standard geometry, built-in daytime running lights are now crammed with LEDs and boomerang-shaped.

The headlamps are connected to each other by a double bar covered with chrome, which also acts as a radiator grille. A large bumper in the lower area is securely protected by a black plastic cover that also obscures the lower air intake.

The aft part, as well as the profile one, has a more classic calm appearance. The designers of the company refused to overstate the side glazing line in order not to damage the exterior. Perhaps, for this reason, the car looks simple, but the review of the driver’s seat and passenger seats deserves the highest ratings.

Much Like Honda Pilot

The interior design of the novelty resembles the interior decoration of the Honda Pilot in addition to the fact that the car was equipped with a two-row configuration of seats designed for five seats. For its comfort, the salon deserves the title of the best in this class.
