2017 Honda Ridgeline Safety Features and More

  • Honda Ridgeline

    The 2017 Honda Ridgeline is a pickup truck with a long list of standard features and even more equipment as you explore up the trim levels. From entertainment, convenience, safety, technology, and everything in between, there is a lot to cover when we’re talking about features on the 2017 Honda Ridgeline. And with seven different trim levels, you’ll find an array of different features offered on each one. You’ll find some trim levels that are geared more toward the safety-conscious driver and others to the tech-savvy driver, one for the budget-conscious driver, and ones for drivers who need to perform tough jobs or who travel extra-long distances. And there are trim levels that combine all of the above.

Standard Entertainment Features

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline is one of the most well-equipped vehicles on the road. Even the entry-level RT model is decked out with more features than some high trim levels of competitive vehicles. In terms of entertainment, you can expect to find features like:

  • 4.2-inch multi-information screen
  • 200-watt seven-speaker sound system
  • USB port
  • Bluetooth and phone connectivity
  • And more!

More Entertainment Features

As you explore upper trim levels, you’ll find even more entertainment features such as HD radio, Sirius/XM satellite radio, up to four USB ports, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration, Pandora capability, and a hands-free text messaging feature.

On the RTL-E trim and higher, the Ridgeline will boast an industry-first truck bed speaker system, which will pump out sound even if the bed is filled with mulch, other cargo, or even snow accumulated from the Wisconsin winter. In the cabin, there will be an extra subwoofer, making it an eight-speaker sound system at an upgraded 540 watts. There is also a 115-volt two-prong outlet in the wall of the truck bed. This outlet is great to power up power tools or other devices to perform jobs, or for entertainment purposes, it can even power a flat-screen TV.

Standard Convenience Features

Ridgeline models include among their standard equipment a plethora of convenience features to make the driving experience more pleasurable for everybody inside. This includes the Ridgeline’s exclusive 60/40-split rear seat with under-seat storage. With the seats intact, items such as golf clubs or groceries can be safely tucked under the seat, away from rear passengers’ legroom. Or, with the seats folded up, the cargo space balloons to accommodate large items like a bicycle with the wheels intact, camping equipment, even a small couch. Other features you’ll find on the entry-level RT trim includes:

  • Dual-action tailgate (swings down or out)
  • Lockable in-bed trunk space
  • Cargo bed light
  • Push-button start
  • Rear privacy glass
  • Cruise control
  • Trailer hitch

Upgraded Convenience Features

Building upon the already well-equipped entry-level RT, other features you’ll find as you explore the upper trim levels include:

  • Halogen fog lights
  • Tri-zone automatic climate control
  • Heated seats and steering wheel
  • LED daytime running lights
  • Leather seating and leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Moonroof
  • Power sliding rear window
  • Acoustic windshield
  • Heated outside mirror

Safety as the Standard

Even the budget-conscious driver interested in the entry-level RT trim will find many safety features and driving aids to make use of. A multi-angle rearview camera comes standard on the Ridgeline and it has dynamic guidelines so drivers can see behind the Ridgeline and have help backing it in and out of tight spaces.

More Safety Features and Driving Aids

For drivers who want more safety aids and amenities, the Honda LaneWatch system is available starting on the RTL trim and higher. This system equips the Ridgeline with a small camera that is attached to the outside mirrors. When drivers signal to change lanes, a live feed displays on the Display Audio screen inside to reveal a more accurate view than using the side mirror alone. So drivers can drive more confidently knowing the lane is clear.

But for drivers who want even more safety and driving aids, an entire suite of technology becomes available on the RTL-E and Black Edition trim levels with the Honda Sensing package. It includes features such as:


Ridgeline Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control: Set your desired speed and this system can detect the movement of surrounding vehicles and traffic to accommodate accordingly.

Ridgeline Forward Collision

Forward Collision Warning: This system can issue a warning to drivers if the Ridgeline is approaching a vehicle or an object too quickly. It can also engage the brakes with automated emergency braking in order to avoid a collision.

Lane Keeping Assist

Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keeping Assist: These systems work in tandem to help keep the Ridgeline within lane lines on the highway and can alert drivers if there is too much sway or can even gently nudge the Ridgeline to correct back within its lane.

Ridgeline Road Departure

Road Departure Mitigation: This system can detect and warn drivers if the Ridgeline has gone dangerously past road markers and, if necessary, can apply the brakes or steering assist to prevent an accident.

Ridgeline Blind Spot

Blind Spot Monitoring with Cross-Traffic Alert: This system can help drivers keep an eye on activity in their blind spot so they can change lanes safely.
