THE NEW RIDGELINE 2017:
A MORE SPACIOUS AND ROBUST UTILITY!
If you are looking for performance, a comfortable, smooth, and quiet ride, a competitive price, and a strengthened four-wheel- drive capability, then the Ridgeline 2017 at Lombardi Honda,your Honda dealer for over 40 years, is made for you!
In fact, the new Ridgeline 2017 has a more spacious and versatile interior than the previous versions. Welcoming 5 adults (two in the front and three at the back), it also allows you to store a variety of objects as large as golf bags beneath the rear seats. When they are folded down, the storage space is even greater. Indeed, the 60/40 split fold-down rear seats allow you to store other large items such as a 47 inches flat screen television or a bicycle.
Moreover, the Ridgeline 2017 has a unibody frame that reduces the vehicle’s fuel consumption.
In addition, the extremely rigid, aerodynamic, self-supporting, and well-sealed body offers clearly superior driving comfort compared to other conventional trucks. The 3.5-liter V6 i-VTEC direct-injection mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission and a Honda Intelligent Variable Torque Management (IVTM-4) makes this utility a high-performance vehicle. This engine allows pulling a load of 5,000 pounds or 2,268 kilograms, and can carry up to 1,571 pounds inside the vehicle (713 kg), 19 kg more than the previous generation. This is clearly superior to the Dodge Ram, which can only carry 1,440 pounds.
Another attractive feature in the Ridgeline is worth pointing out. The versatility of its platform is unrivalled. With 5 feet wide and 5 feet 4 inches in length (5.4 inches wider and 4 inches longer than the previous model), the Ridgeline 2017 is the only one of its class to offer four feet wide between the rear wheels. Such upgrade allows it to easily carry drywall or plywood. Lombardi Honda is very proud to offer this utility to its customers. A careful examination shows that it also includes the In-Bed Trunk lock feature that provides a safe storage. The completely flat platform has more than one drain ensuring quick drainage As if Honda did not astonish us enough already, the Ridgeline 2017 is also equipped with a dual action tailgate that swings both, to the left and on its base. It also accommodates a 400 W inverter and an integrated sound system, which is new to the Japanese manufacturer. Moreover, the first feature can charge power tools and TV screens.
