If you’re looking for the perfect truck, look no further than the new Ridgeline. According to Honda, the 2017 Ridgeline has been awarded for everything from safety to quality, reaffirming its excellence. The North American Truck of the Year award is given to the truck scoring highest in design, safety, performance, handling, driver satisfaction, innovation, and value. It is determined by a group of 50 members of the North American auto media, and it is entirely independent.
“This award is a prized validation of the innovations and advantages the Ridgeline offers midsize pickup truck customers and a great recognition of the American development team’s work,” said John Mendel, Executive Vice President of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “This is a terrific way to kick off 2017, and we’re looking forward to sharing more innovative Honda products in the year ahead.”
Why did the Ridgeline win? Judges were particularly impressed with the number of industry-exclusive features on the 2017 model year, including its unibody construction, Dual Action Tailgate, In-Bed Trunk, and the Truck Bed Audio System. The new Ridgeline also has a scratch- and dent-resistant composite bed. There’s nothing quite like the new 2017 Honda Ridgeline, and this award proves it.
