2017 Honda Ridgeline Black Edition Combines Functionality and Tech

By 0 Permalink 0

Honda just outdid themselves. They took all the best features of their high end cars and packed them into the new 2017 Honda Ridgeline Black Edition. This tricked out pick-up truck will be the party on wheels at my next Honda Laura bash! Fully loaded with tons of great features, the Ridgeline is ready to work, tow and haul, but cradle you in comfort with an easy-to-drive feel when the work day is done. In my latest video, Herb Chambers Honda of Seekonk let me check out what takes this truck from ordinary to extraordinary.

Honda completely outdid themselves in their redesign of the 2017 Ridgeline Black Edition. While previous generations were utilitarian trucks, this new model capitalizes on that functionality but combines it with all the features we love about our Honda cars. With an MSRP of $42,870, the Ridgeline offers lots of bang for the buck. It is completed teched out. Add to that, insane comfort and driveability. It’s like driving a high end car, but one that’s tough and rugged at the same time. Drivers sit higher up, so there’s plenty of visibility as well.

Bottom line, if you need the versatility and durability of a truck, but don’t want to sacrifice tech and comfort, check out the new 2017 Honda Ridgelines at Herb Chambers Honda of Seekonk. You can have the best of both worlds. Then make sure Honda Laura is on the invite list when you plan your next tailgate party!
