2018 Honda Ridgeline Changes – In the year 2017, the Honda Ridgeline midsize made its appearance back after a hiatus of several years. With just one year under his belt after coming back to the ranks of Honda, we anticipate this to take light pickup is basically unchanged. As carryover, we hope this new model can hardly be distinguished in addition to the current model. This will continue with the front end inspired by the Honda Pilot and the bed of the truck. This is a bed that makes this model so unique, because it comes with a dual-action tailgate that open like a traditional pickup but can also be played on the hinge side. Even equipped with audio system in-bed and optional built-in cooler/trunk for tailgating.
2018 Honda Ridgeline Review
After a brief hiatus, the 2018 Honda Ridgeline is back for the second generation in the 2017 model year. With a history that gives automakers the model refresh for their fourth model, we only expect a revised trim and features a light in the second year, 2018 (we will be updating this space as soon as we have the official info). Although the new Ridgeline has many features in common with the first gen model, the new model has the look of a more traditional pickup.
Model 3.5-liter i-VTEC V-6 years 201 with variable cylinder management technology and auto start/stop an optional possibility will get carried away. The engine is currently producing 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. We also expect the rest of the drivetrain for the carryover include a six-speed automatic transmission and the torque management system-variable torque (i-VTM4) all-wheel-drive with torque vectoring rear traction and management savvy.
2018 Honda Ridgeline Interior
Inside, we expect no change to continue. This is obviously not a problem because the current Honda Ridgeline has a comfortable interior as you can get in a pickup truck. This comfort thanks to high-end materials available, advanced infotainment systems, high levels of insulation and a softer ride than usual. We could see a little minor tweaks on the infotainment in the new year, but this remains unconfirmed for the moment.
2018 Honda Ridgeline Under the Hood
Under the hood of the car, we estimate the V6 3.6 liter remains unchanged at 280 horsepower and preparation of the front wheel by default stays the same. All-wheel drive will still be an option for those looking for an extra attraction. If there is one side to the V6 engine and chassis of a uni-body, this is the towing capacity of 5,000-pound models are simplified, which should also remain the same in the new year.
2018 Honda Ridgeline Safety
The IIHS has not fully tested the current ridgeline, but in two test collision was over-being-overlapping side-and he got a “good” rating. It also received a “Superior” rating in front crash avoidance, collision mitigation braking thanks to the optional, putting it into a good position to earn IIHS Top Safety Pick designation.
2018 Honda Ridgeline Release Date and Price
The official price for the new 2018 Honda Ridgeline remains unknown for now, but may not be far away from the current model range of $30,375 to $43,770. While these prices make it difficult to compete with medium-level pickup base, but prices are falling in price range of Chevrolet Colorado ($20,995 up $36,390), GMC Canyon ($21.880 to $39.200) and Toyota Tacoma (up $25.060 $41,700).
While the official release date for 2018 Honda Ridgeline is still unknown and we anticipate his arrival in the summer of 2017.
