2017 Honda Ridgeline Makes IIHS History

The highly anticipated 2017 Honda Ridgeline is officially the first and only pickup truck to ever be awarded a TOP SAFETY PICK+ designation from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS)*. The coveted “plus” signifies the highest possible safety rating from the Institute. With 2 other Honda models in the 2017 TOP SAFETY PICK+ echelon and 3 in the TOP SAFETY PICK stratum, Honda has proven once again to be a true safety leader in the automotive industry.

In the “Crash Avoidance and Mitigation” category, the 2017 Ridgeline earned a “Superior” rating (when equipped with Honda Sensing™), and was rated “Good” across the board for Crashworthiness, which means it performed very well in the small overlap front and side crash tests.

Honda vehicles continue to be among the IIHS’s safest vehicles due to their superior array of active and passive safety features. The available Honda Sensing™ Suite is an IIHS favorite, and brings 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) together to create 360 degrees of protection. This suite of driver assistive technologies not only audibly and visually alerts the driver if it senses trouble, it can even autonomously correct the trajectory of the vehicle to avoid a collision.

And superior safety doesn’t isn’t just “available”; every 2017 Honda comes standard with a rearview camera, Advance Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with traction control; Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and an sophisticated airbag system.
