2017 Honda Ridgeline Earns Top Safety Rating from NHTSA

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline recently made history by being the first pickup truck to earn a TOP SAFETY PICK + designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Now, this iconic pick-up truck has earned another safety gold star; (five in fact). The Ridgeline is currently the only pick-up truck in America to earn a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The Ridgeline scored 5 stars in the NHTSA’s frontal crash test for driver and passenger, the side crash tests for both front and rear seats and 4 stars in the rollover test. These exceptional crash ratings are no doubt due, in part, to the Ridgeline’s next-generation ACE™ body structure and advanced airbag system, but the Ridgeline has additional safety features that go beyond physical strength. Queue Honda Sensing™. This suite of driver-assistive technologies use audible and visual signals to alert the driver is a collision is impending, and in some cases, will take evasive maneuvers autonomously to avoid a crash.

This safety suite combines Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) with Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) with Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) to create 360 degrees of protection. The Honda Sensing™ suite is standard on the Ridgeline RTL-E and Black Editions, but all Ridgeline trim levels include a multi-angle rearview camera, Advance Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure; Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with traction control; Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), and an advanced airbag system as standard safety features.

Pick-up trucks are known for their towing capacity and ability to haul cargo, but the 2017 Honda Ridgeline proves a pickup truck can be more than a workhorse. With the largest and most versatile cabin in its segment, a truck-bed audio system, and superior safety ratings, the Ridgeline fits in anywhere from the construction site to the concert hall!
