Although many manufacturers once believed that the best way to increase the security of one’s drivers was to design bigger, bulkier automobiles, we now know that computer-driven safety features are the way of the future. In the 2017 Honda Ridgeline, an Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure provides a solid base for an unrivaled suite of cameras, monitors, and warnings. The comprehensive Honda Sensing system is the gold standard in driver-assistance technologies, and Honda has equipped it as a standard feature in the Ridgeline’s RTL-E and Black Edition trims.
Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: With the Ridgeline’s standard rearview camera, you’ll be able to observe your path from three different vantage points: top-down, wide angle, and normal view. In each view, automatic guidelines will let your vehicle perform with increased maneuverability and control.
Blind Spot Visibility: Checking your blind spot can be difficult, especially when you’re hauling a trailer or traversing tight pathways. Whenever your Ridgeline’s blinker is active, its Blind Spot Visibility warning system will flash to alert you if there’s a vehicle in your blind spot.
Honda LaneWatch: For even more protection when changing lanes, Ridgeline drivers can utilize the Honda LaneWatch monitor. This feature sends live feed from a camera on your passenger-side mirror straight to your Display Audio screen, giving you almost four times more visibility than you’d otherwise possess!
Cross-Traffic Monitor: When you shift your vehicle into reverse, your Ridgeline’s cross-traffic monitor will jump into action. Much like the Ridgeline’s blind spot warning, this feature will light up to warn you if a vehicle crosses your path.
The Honda Sensing feature package provides drivers and their families with computer-driven safety that functions in any environment. With Honda Sensing equipped, a Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assistance, and Road Departure Mitigation can help you manage even the heaviest loads. Additionally, a Forward Collision Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Collision Mitigation Braking allow your vehicle to detect obstacles in your path and adjust your speed occasionally. The engineers at Honda have taken pickup safety to the next level by offering these powerful technologies as standard features in the Ridgeline’s RTL-E and Black edition trims.
Pickup drivers have always valued the power and adaptability that their trucks offer, but today’s toughest jobs require more than horsepower and cargo space. It’s more important than ever to be able to stay connected when you’re on the move, and thankfully, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline has been designed to help you face the challenges of the 21st century. Satellite-linked navigation, HondaLink integration, and voice-recognition technology put you in control wherever you go. What’s more, multiple stereo systems and tons of radio options allow the Ridgeline to perform like a home away from home.
Satellite-Linked Navigation: No matter where your next job or vacation takes you, you can be sure that the Ridgeline is equipped with the technology to get you there without trouble. With this available upgrade, you can display real-time traffic and navigation information on your Display Audio screen.
HondaLink: This technology, which comes equipped as a standard feature on each Ridgeline trim, lets you sync all of the important information on your phone with your truck’s onboard computer. Now, your contacts, appointments, and deadlines can be checked and managed wherever you are.
Voice Recognition: Voice recognition makes it easier to control the Ridgeline’s many technologies and functions. This feature comes standard in the Ridgeline’s RTL-T, RTL-E, and Black Edition trims.
Available Stereo Systems: Ridgeline cabins are automatically equipped with a 200-watt seven-speaker sound system, but more powerful options are available when you decide to upgrade! In the higher-level trims, Ridgeline drivers will also have access to a seven-exciter truck bed audio system that can perform in any setting or environment.
Radio and Music: Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto are both available in the 2017 Ridgeline, which means it’s easier than ever for the whole family to enjoy their preferred music on the road. Your Ridgeline will also be able to play thousands of songs from Pandora Internet Radio and Sirius XM Satellite Radio.
