2017 Black Edition

After 2 weeks and 300+ miles, I couldn't be happier with my Ridgeline. The ride and handling are far superior to any other truck I've owned. The spacious interior is well thought out, extremely comfortable and very quiet while fit & finish are flawless. Access to the bed and trunk through the 2-way tailgate is superb. Honda put a lot of thought & effort into the details with this truck and it shows. Every vehicle ever made is a compromise of cost, capability, performance, comfort, etc. and the Ridgeline is no different in that regard. Unless you really need more ground clearance for hard core off-roading or the ability to tow more than 5k lbs, consider shopping the Ridgeline against the competition - you won't be disappointed.

This new 2017 RTL-E is my second Ridgeline. I previously had Chevy, Ram, and Toyota. The new Ridgeline is the best vehicle overall I have every owned. I say that acknowledging I don't need a heavy duty truck - and this would not suffice if I did. However, for medium duty towing and hauling, as well as comfort in handling and ride, this is it!

Formerly had Ford Sport Trac which I loved. They discontinued it. So Before purchasing Ridgeline RTL, test drove Tacoma and Frontier. No comparison. Ridgeline ride is so much better. Better ride (quiet, smooth transmission, easy ride, good acceleration) , much better interior (Tacoma feels like a beer can), better gas milage, better sound, etc. Easy access to secure tie-downs in bed. Overall like it better than the Sport Trac too! One nitpick drawback. No lock on tailgate and as of yet, no weatherproof tonnau. Purchased in Miami Lakes, more than 2g off of MSRP.

The most comfortable vehicle I've ever owned.

by from Souderton PA on March 30, 2017

I've once owned a BMW 7-Series...this is more comfortable than that! I am a computer guy by trade and not a tradesman. This is not truck for people who use it for a living. This is for people like me, who need to haul a large mountain bike, the occasional couch or a few trips to Home Depot. The bed is shallow (that's a good thing). I can easily reach into any part of it...and its got a trunk for all the reasons that you'd want a trunk. The 2-way tailgate is a nice surprise. I commute 500 miles a week and my Black Edition comes with all the toys that make life nice. The truck practically drives itself. You forget that it is a truck. Driving it in the snow is a non-event. After 3 months of ownership, I am very happy with my purchase.

I had been tracking the production of the truck since the announcement in June 2016. Had to wait for 5 months for the red RTL-E, but it was worth it. The interior has all the comforts of a high level SUV, drives tight and quiet, great gas mileage for a mid-size truck, and just like all Honda cars, has features that you don't think you'll need but are just cool to have (truck bed light). So if you are looking for a comfortable truck that needs to also double as your daily commuter car, this is definitely worth checking out.
