From tip to tail, the bed of the 2017 Honda Ridgeline has been designed to maximize available space and flexibility. Whether you’re gearing up for the big tailgating party or moving unwieldly materials to a secluded job site, the Ridgeline’s truck bed has the space and the layout to accommodate the tools and toys that you want by your side.
Box-Mounted Truck: Just beneath the floor of your pickup bed, you’ll find a mounted trunk with 7.3 cubic feet of storage space. This flat-bottom trunk is easy to lock and includes a drain plug so it can be used as a cooler—and its innovative placement means that it doesn’t take away valuable space from other larger items that you need to transport.
Wheel Wells: In a similar, creative vein, the engineers at Honda have designed their wheel wells to be minimally intrusive. The wheel wells in other pickups can often prohibit the driver from laying things flat in the bed, but that’s not the case in the 2017 Ridgeline.
Dual-Action Tailgate: The tailgates of most pickups only open in one direction, forcing you to lean and reach while you’re loading or unloading heavy objects. By contrast, the tailgate on the 2017 Ridgeline can open both down and outward, making it easier than ever to manage your cargo space.
Bed Size and Volume: The bed of the 2017 Ridgeline measures 60 inches wide by 64 inches long, or 83 inches long with the tailgate down. With a full 33.9 cubic feet of cargo space, you’ll hardly ever have to worry about cargo overflow.
Built-In Tie-Downs: To assist you in transporting your bulkiest loads, the engineers at Honda have equipped the Ridgeline’s bed with built-in tie-downs, capable of exerting 350 pounds of pressure on whatever you need to haul.
Integrated Trailer Hitch: No discussion of the 2017 Ridgeline’s cargo capacity could be complete without mention of its hauling power. This pickup is capable of towing 3,500 pounds in two-wheel drive, and up to 5,000 pounds with all-wheel-drive enabled!
Of course, if you’re only looking at the Ridgeline’s back end, you’re going to miss much of what this pickup has to offer. Turning our attention to the inside of the cabin, it immediately becomes apparent that the designers at Honda have left no space unutilized. No matter where you look in the 2017 Honda Ridgeline, you’re going to encounter innovative and accessible storage compartments that will protect your vulnerable and electronic gear on messy jobs and vacations alike!
60/40-Split Bench Seat: Occasionally, every pickup driver needs to transport something that won’t quite fit comfortably in the bed, and this 60/40-split bench seat is the ideal tool for those situations. The already-spacious rear seating in the Ridgeline’s cabin can be folded up to accommodate the electronics and equipment that you’d rather not expose to the elements.
Interior Space: On the whole, the cabin of the 2017 Ridgeline offers 109.7 cubic feet of passenger space, distributed more or less evenly between the front and rear rows of seating. While everyone should be more than comfortable in this spacious interior, passengers used to riding in more cramped pickups should be especially impressed with the Ridgeline’s remarkable 36.7 inches of rear leg space!
Stow-and-Go Center Console: To keep your devices charged and close at hand, there’s no better tool than the Honda Ridgeline’s center console. With a 12-volt power outlet and enough space to cradle a 10-inch tablet, this center console will quickly become a favored sanctuary for the family’s electronics. Additional power outlets are available on upgraded Ridgeline trims.
Under-Seat Storage: With the Ridgeline, you’ll have access to extra storage space in the cabin even when you’re carting passengers to and fro. Underneath the rear seat you’ll find 2.9 cubic feet of storage space that’s perfect for everything from laptops to muddy shoes (though maybe not at the same time)!
