2017 Honda Ridgeline Spy Photos Offer Our Best Look Yet


A new set of spy photos has given us our best look yet at the 2017 Honda Ridgeline. 

Thanks to new skin tight camouflage, we have our first view of the body lines of Honda’s new small pickup. As expected, the Ridgeline has adopted a more traditional truck look with a more upright c-pillar, although a new plastic shroud can be seen around the c-pillars and rear window. This is a throwback to the previous truck’s unique “flying buttress” designed c-pillar.

Some shots of the bed reveal lighting installed in the bed walls along with what appears to be a spray-in bedliner.

At the 2015 SEMA Show, Honda revealed the Ridgeline Baja Race Truck, saying that it would foreshadow some of the production truck’s style. Besides giving us only a slight idea of what the Ridgeline’s nose might look like, the race truck revealed information on the engine. Honda announced that the twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 in the race truck would share its block, cylinder heads and crankshaft with the production truck, which mean we can expect a 3.5-liter V6 under the hood, likely without turbos.

Inside, thick camouflage covers up most of the details, though it appears that Ridgeline will get a single touchscreen in the center stack, much like the new Civic.

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline will hit dealers sometime in the first half of 2016.

    It’s my first stop by a site like this. I notice the awkward paint / decal job on it. What’s the purpose of it?
