Honda Ridgeline RTSMichigan drivers already know that the 2017 Honda Ridgeline is one of a kind, but now there’s yet another reason to get excited about this newly redesigned pickup truck. Buyers can expect the Ridgeline to provide them with high power, a spacious truck bed, and exceptional fuel economy—and on top of all this, they’ll also receive some of the most advanced safety features available today! The IIHS has just confirmed that no other pickup offers a comparable selection of features and offerings. The Ridgeline was the only vehicle in its class to earn the designation of Top Safety Pick+, the highest honor bestowed by the IIHS.

Safety Features in the 2017 Ridgeline

The safety features in the 2017 Ridgeline are changing the way that drivers everywhere think about pickup trucks! Unlike other manufacturers, Honda designs and outfits all of their vehicles with numerous powerful safety technologies. These include a multi-angle rearview camera, ACE body structure, and Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control. Of course, these aren’t the only advanced technologies that you’ll find in the Ridgeline! Daytime running lights come equipped in every Ridgeline trim, and Honda LaneWatch comes standard in the RTL-T trim and above!

However, it’s the Honda Sensing package that really makes the Ridgeline stand out from the crowd! This suite of intelligent driver-assistance technologies utilize the power of artificial intelligence in order to provide protection from threats that you might otherwise miss or ignore! Honda Sensing features include a Collision Mitigation Braking System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Road Departure Mitigation, and a Lane Keeping Assist System! It’s important to note that the Honda Sensing package also offers a Forward Collision Warning and a Lane Departure Warning.
