2017 Honda Ridgeline Black EditionThe 2017 Honda Ridgeline has been recognized over all of the competition to be awarded with the prestigious North American Truck of the Year Award for 2017. As a pickup truck that breaks the mold of what many Montana drivers have learned to expect from a pickup, it has a lot to offer from the equipment inside, to versatility on the road, to an unrivaled commitment to safety, we’re thrilled that the Ridgeline has been recognized for its excellence.

About the Award

The North American Truck of the Year Award is decided by a group of over 50 independent journalists and automotive media members in the United States and Canada. Together they assess all the trucks of the year and select the one that excelled in the award’s criteria, which include innovation, design, safety performance, handling, driver satisfaction, and value. By being named the recipient of the award at the American International Auto Show in Detroit, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline shows that it is here to impress drivers and journalists as a one-of-a-kind, standout pickup truck.

About the Ridgeline

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline is a cut above the rest with industry-exclusive features that you won’t find on any other vehicle out there. Features like unibody construction; a dual-action tailgate that can be opened down, in the traditional way, or swing outward to make loading and unloading a little easier; an in-bed lockable trunk that can stow away items you want to keep out of sight or, with its drain-plug, can even be used as an ice chest; a dent-resistant composite truck bed; and the first-ever truck-bed audio system that utilizes exciter technology that won’t be damaged by weather or cargo and will pump out sound un-muffled, even if the bed of the truck is filled with soil.

Safety Matters

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline has also been named a 2017 Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety when equipped with available front crash prevention system and LED headlights. It is the first pickup truck to ever receive this top rating from the IIHS.
