    2017 Honda Ridgeline and Business Update by Jeff Conrad Sr.

    VP and GM Honda Division.nnThe 2017 Honda Ridgeline is the second generation of Honda’s innovative midsize pickup truck, redesigned from the ground up to offer both recreational and work users a higher degree of utility and versatility in a modern, rugged and sophisticated midsize pickup with the largest and most flexible cabin in its class; a higher level of confident and refined dynamic performance; and robust cargo-hauling and towing capabilities, including a class-leading maximum 1,584 pound (718.5 kg) payload capacity (varies by trim) and up to 5,000-pound (2,268 kg) towing (RT AWD).

    nnBased on Honda’s Global Light Truck platform – with its highly rigid, aerodynamic and tightly sealed unitized body construction, Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) safety body structure, and fully independent front and rear suspension systems with Amplitude Reactive Dampers – the 2017 Honda Ridgeline offers vastly superior ride comfort and handling precision compared to conventional body-on-frame truck offerings, along with the top-in-class cabin quietness and anticipated collision safety performance.

    nn Combining this new platform with a more powerful and efficient direct-injected 3.5-liter i-VTEC V-6 engine, a 6-speed automatic transmission with wider ratio spread, and available new Intelligent Variable Torque Management (iVTM-4) torque-vectoring all-wheel drive – the most advanced AWD technology in the midsize truck class – results in class-leading EPA fuel economy ratings along with superior all-weather traction and handling capability and robust medium-duty off-road performance.
