We are ever so close to getting all the details on the new 2017 Honda Ridgeline. There is a specifications and driving impressions embargo until Sunday May 8th, 2016 at 9:01pm PDT. The embargo is there to make it fair for all journalists who participated in this driving event throughout the week. We will publish several first drive reviews of the new Ridgeline at and after this deadline. We will show and discuss how the truck tows, how it handles off-road terrain, and how it compares to the current midsize pickup segment leader, the 2016 Toyota Tacoma.
For now, we know that the second generation Ridgeline is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 that it shares with the 2016 Honda Pilot. The exact power output specification will be announced on Sunday at the end of the embargo. The 6-speed automatic transmission will be the only one available. We also know that the 2017 Ridgeline is EPA rated at 19 MPG city, 26 MPG highway, and a segment leading 22 MPG combined when compared to gasoline V6-powered midsize pickup trucks.
The 2017 Honda Ridgeline will start arriving at the dealerships in June of 2016.
