Compare the 2017 Honda Ridgeline

The Honda Ridgeline was named Number One in the Compact Pickup Trucks segment from US News, with a durable design and exclusive features. This new truck is made to be truly capable, offering innovative options like an in-bed audio system, and in-bed trunk, and more. Compared to vehicles like the Chevy Colorado and the Nissan Frontier, you can easily see why you should get the 2017 Honda Ridgeline today.
Fuel Economy and Power
The new Honda Ridgeline comes with a 3.5-liter V6 engine that gets 19/26 (city/hwy) mpg* when properly equipped. This is the same as the Colorado, an impressive feature for capable pickups. However, the Nissan Frontier only manages 15/21 mpg, which is significantly worse than its competitors. The Ridgeline also gets up to 280 horsepower—better than either competitor.

When it comes to features, the Ridgeline tops all. This model comes with a standard bed liner, standard aluminum wheels, and a standard trailer hitch receiver. Believe it or not, none of these are standard on the Frontier or Colorado. Additionally, the Ridgeline has Brake Assist, onboard hands-free communications, a power driver mirror, keyless entry, and remote start—all of which you have to pay extra for on the Frontier and Colorado.
We could go on and on. If you’re looking for the best compact truck on the market, check out the new Honda Ridgeline. You can test drive this model at Sunny King Honda to see what else makes this pickup so unique.

The all-new 2017 Honda Ridgeline has been impressing everyone. See what automotive journalists and professionals have been saying in their reviews:
"No matter how it's outfitted, the Ridgeline is a no-brainer of a truck: unmatched in smoothness and comfort, and full of innovation well beyond its unibody construction. It deserved far more sales than it netted in its inaugural generation. Here's hoping this one realizes its full potential."

-- Car and Driver
"In the same way that a car-based crossover is a better choice for most families than a truck-based SUV, the Ridgeline is a better choice for a large swath of pickup buyers. It really is more comfortable, more fuel efficient, roomier, and easier to live with than its primary competitors."

-- Autoblog


"True to its unibody underpinnings, the Ridgeline rides and handles better than the Tacoma or Colorado. New for 2017 are Amplitude Reactive Dampers as seen on the Honda Pilot, with which the Ridgeline shares a basic platform. Driven back to back, the body-on-frame trucks seem to create bumps on roads where none existed in the Ridgeline. They're harsher and noisier in the cabin, too."
