Take the 2017 Honda Ridgeline Out for a Drive

2017 Honda Ridgeline on dirt road

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline is among the newer pickups you will find on the road and it’s a model you have to check out. It’s your answer to a pickup that isn’t as large and awkward the others but still has great features. You are sure to love the speakers in the tailgate and drainable storage area in the truck bed that can become a cooler for tailgating. Here are just some things you’ll notice when taking the Ridgeline on a drive around Venice.

Truly Innovative Truck Bed

While every automaker claims to have an innovative vehicle, the 2017 Ridgeline is among a few that actually deliver features you haven’t seen before. Before you go on your drive, load up the truck bed. There is room for everything, including 4×8-foot plywood sheets thanks to the minimal wheel well housings that give you more storage. The available sound system mentioned before is a must have for tailgating or beachfront picnics. This is actually an industry first! It takes advantage of the bed wall’s structure to deliver amazing sound quality. Opt for the Trunk-Bed Outlet so you can even plug in a TV, as well (or power tools when you have to work).

The In-Bed Trunk is something you will get a lot of use from. Whether it’s to store valuables, keep stuff safe from the weather, or to enjoy a cooler built right into your truck – you’ll surely enjoy it. The In-Bed Trunk holds 7.3 cubic feet, has a drain plug so it can get completely dry, and locks so no one can reach your valuables.

Cabin Comfort on the Longest Drives

The 2017 Ridgeline may be a pickup, but when you sit inside, you will notice all the amenities typical of a Honda SUV or sedan. From the available 8-inch touchscreen to the 4.2-inch Multi-Information Display, you get all the important features. Be sure to check out the spacious center console that fits your 10-inch tablet with ease! The cabin is also spacious, showcasing enough room for a family of five. You can get interior space for anything you need thanks to the rear 60/40 Split Lift-Up seats.

Meeting All Your Tough Truck Needs

Wherever you choose to drive the 2017 Honda Ridgeline, you will be in for a treat, as this pickup can deliver everything you need. Choose from 2-wheel drive and i-VTM4 AWD with Intelligent Traction Management to confidently drive over sand and mud. They both have their own drive modes in addition to Normal and Snow. While you are unlikely to use the Snow setting in Venice, you will likely use the Sand one more than enough to make up for it. Of course, the Ridgeline can also tow up to 5,000 pounds, making it easy to bring your boat to the beach.
