2017 Honda Ridgeline Review First Impression

. So, This Is The Honda Ridgeline Which Has Been Around For About Ten Years, But They Didn't Redesign It For The Longest Time And This Is The New One Came Out Just This Last Year And The Thing About The Ridgeline Different From All Other Pickup Trucks Is It's Based On A Crossover Platform The Honda Pilot Platform To Be To Be Precise, If You Look Inside Everything Here Looks Just Like A Pilot Except For What's Behind These Seats That Does A Lot Of Things That Make This Really An Interesting Truck.

I Mean It's Really Quiet And It's Really Smooth Because It's Not A Body-on-frame Pickup It's More Like A Crossover And It You Couldn't Tell Really That You Were In A Pickup Truck From Where. I'm Sitting Until You Look In The Back It's Actually Quite A Great Concept For Those Who Don't Really Plan To Go Off-road Much Although We've Proven That You Can Do Dirt Roads Just Fine, But And It Still Has A Decent Amount Of Cargo Cap Capacity In Fact This Truck Is Has A Higher Payload Rating Than The Tacoma Double Cab That We Have On Our Fleet And It Has A Longer Bed By An Inch Or. So, And It's A Wider Bed As Well And Defenders That Usually Make It Pop Necessary Put A Piece Of Plywood In Cockeyed Are Far Enough Apart That You Can Put Four By Eight Sheet Of Plywood Slack On The Floor With That.

So, This Is Actually A Pretty Decent Truck Up Until The Point You Want To Go Boulder Hopping And Moab You Know We Can't Do That Because The Clearance Just Isn't There The Ridge Line As You Might Have Heard Is A Crossover Car Base Truck. So, It Has Independent Suspension On All Four Corners It Doesn't Have A Solid Axle In The Back And It Also Has A Unit Body Instead Of A Just A Ladder Frame With A Body Sitting On Top It's A Little Bit More Integrated Than That And That Allows It To Sit A Little Lower It Also Makes The Whole Thing More Robust When Comes To NB H Which Is Noise Vibration And Harshness And Harshness And. So, You Know I'm On This Nice Winding Road Here Coarse Asphalt.

So, We're Hearing A Little Bit Of Road Noise, But Really It's Pretty Muted Considering The Surface Were On And And The Car Like Ride That Comes From The Crossover Chassis Is No Joke It Goes Straight Down The Road It Steers Nice. I'm Not Sitting Up High. So, When The Body Rolls In Corners.

I Don't Feel It Like You Know. I'm Sitting Way Up High It's A Lot Lower It Just Feels A Lot Nicer To Drive And Again Bonus Ridgeline Has A Really Nice Comfortable Interior Interior And It's Attractive Doesn't Look Like A Truck Interior Because It's Kind Of A Honda Pilot Interior, But What's Nice About That Is There's A Lot Of Storage. I Mean There's A Big Thing Here.

I've Got A Bunch Of Feet Jerky And Stuff In Here Now. I Can't Get It Back In A Couple Of Big Cupholders A Slot Here Their Phone Will Fit In Another One Here The Door Pockets Are Like Two Levels And There's A Place For A Bottle Up Front And Stuff Back Here And. I'm Using It All And It's Just Really Really Convenient.

I Don't Really Put Sunglasses Here, But There's A Mirror In That Position That Allows Parents To See Their Kids In Their Car Seat. So, That's Kind Of Cheap And Sunroof Controls Right Here The Visors Extend For Those Times And The Sun Comes In From The Side Which For Me Is A Lot Although It's Coming In From The Other Side Right Now Don't Need It And Steering Wheel Has Quite A Bit A Telescopic Range For Somebody My Size. I Pull It All The Way Back Which Might Be Counted To Counterintuitive, But That Allows Me To Put My Seat Back Get Lots Of Legroom And.

I Really Like The Driving This Is Really Really Quite Pleasant This Ridgeline Has A Tire Pressure Monitoring System As All Cars Do Now As A 2007 To The Requirement, But The Requirement The Minimum Requirement Is Just A Warning Light That Just Tells You You Have A Low Tire It Doesn't Tell You Which Tire Is Low For The Telogen You Have A Low Tire This System Lists The Tire Pressure. I Can Look At It Right Now On The Screen 35 37 36 37 The 37 S Are In The Sun The 35 And 36 Are In The Shade That's Kind Of Normal To See That If. I Drove The Other Way They Might Reverse, But Yeah.

So, What There Are Sensors In The Tires That Are That Are Measuring The Pressure And Communicating With Sensors In Each Vendor Well That's How It Knows Which Sensor Is At Which Position And Then The Computer Just Displays Them Here And, If One Of Them Gets Below 25 Percent Of The Set Pressure And That's 35 Psi Is What It's Supposed To Be. So, You Can Do The Math 27 Or 28. I Don't Know, If It Gets Down That Low.

I'll Get A Low Tire Warning And This One Will Tell Me Which Tire Is Low And What That Pressure Is Which Is Great It's A Lot Better Than A Warning Light That Just Says You've Got A Low Tire Just One One Of The Things. I Like About The New Ridgeline Is Apple Carplay And Android Auto Are Built Into The Head Unit Those Are Really Neat It's. So, Seamless The Interface That Everybody Has Kind Of Memorized When It Comes To Their Phones Is Basically Mimicked Here The Problem We Have With That Is You Think It'd Be Great Because.

I Could Use Google Maps Or Apple Maps, If You Like That. I Don't Know Anybody Who Does, But, If You Think You Could Use That, But There's A Problem And The Problem Is We're At Death Valley Right Now We've Got No Signal And, If We've Got No Signal We've Got No Data And, If We've Got No Data We've Got No Maps. So, We Can't Use The Map Function In Carplay In Android Auto And That Presents A Problem If.

I'm Trying To Use The Nav System On This And Listen To Music On My IPhone Using Car Play It Doesn't Like The Fact That. I'm Trying To Use Both Worlds At The Same Time It Wants Me To Be In One Environment Or The Other, But Not One For Music And A Different One For Nap And. I Think That's Kind Of A Problem That Needs To Be Addressed, But Other Than That You Know.

I Mean How Many Times Are You In A Place Where There's No Signal Not Too Often, But Still. I Do Like To Go Outdoors And It Happens Quite A Bit For Me This Honda Ridgeline Shares A Lot With A Honda Pilot Which Is Good At That. I Mean It's Great Interior It's Comfortable Seats Driving Position Lots Of Room All Of That Is Excellent Quiet, But It Also Has This Stereo Head Unit That's Pretty Annoying It Doesn't Have A Volume Knob And The Little, Buttons Here That You Have To Push To Switch Between Modes Are Really Small And, If You're Moving Around Like.

I Am Now As We're Driving Down The Road You Might Miss The One You Want Hit A Different One Honda Is Fixing That In Newer Cars Like The CRV They've Added A Volume Knob, But The Problem With The Small Targets For The Touchscreen Still Exists And It Could Be Better, But That's Really One Of My Biggest Piece Of The Car And, If That's The Biggest Beef. I Think. I'm Probably Living With It , If You Want To Learn More About The Honda Ridgeline Or Any Of The Vehicles In Our Long-term Test Fleet Just Click Below Or Check Out More Videos On The Edmunds YouTube Channel.
