The truck starts at $30,475, netting the buyer front-wheel drive and a base RT model that comes with 18-inch alloy wheels, push button start, Bluetooth and a 5″ touchscreen in the center stack. Getting four-wheel drive in the base model will cost an extra $1,800.
Moving up to an RTS model will set you back $34,215 with four-wheel drive, adding features like fog lights, remote start and tri-zone HVAC controls. The Sport model gets a blacked out look and will cost $35,715 while a mid level RTL model will cost $36,480. RTL models pack leather-trimmed, heated front seats, though an RTL-T is also available with navigation and the eight-inch infotainment touchscreen for $38,630.
Top-trim RTL-E models will sell for $42,630 and come standard with Honda sensing, a moon roof, truck bed audio, a heated steering wheel, a chrome grille and more. Those looking for even more style can opt for the $42,770 Black Edition, which completely blacks out the truck’s exterior while unique stitching and red ambient lighting is added inside.
All versions of the new 2017 Ridgeline use a 3.5-liter V6 that makes 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque, sent through a six-speed automatic transmission. Fuel economy for the truck is rated at 21 mpg combined with four-wheel drive.
The new 2017 Honda Ridgeline will hit dealers starting in July of 2016.
