2017 Honda Ridgeline: The Full Scoop

Here’s the full scoop on the new-for-2017 Honda Ridgeline, with everything you need to know!

The nutshell? Look for a 3.5 litre V6 with 280 horsepower, a  6-speed automatic, and a new all-wheel drive system with this terrain selector to fine-tune the operation of various systems to the sort of driving at hand. Towing capacity is rated at 5,000 Lbs. Mileage? Not bad—I did 11.7L/100km over the course of a 2,200 km test-drive, with lots of highway cruising. That’s measured-by-hand mileage.
