The 2017 Honda Ridgeline has been updated and improved with consumers’ needs in mind. The new truck debuted at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit on January 11th, and already has stirred up quite a positive buzz. This new truck may change the way people tailgate forever.
The truck bed has a speaker system inside the bed walls, which uses the composite materials as speakers. The truck can even pump out music through a bed filled with mulch or dirt.
The Executive Vice President John Mendel for American Honda stated that this was “good old-fashioned Honda engineering magic” as you can hear the music, even though there are “no speakers to get bashed or scrapped” when hauling materials.
Not just focusing on music, the Ridgeline’s bed also includes a lockable in-bed composite trunk with a drain plug, which can double as an icebox. There is also a 400-watt AC power port which is helpful for charging power tools or game-day electronics.
Honda is taking a unique approach to trucks and appealing to those who are more into the active, outdoor lifestyle then the people that use their truck for their job. This truck will be perfect for weekend sporting events, road trips, or hauling jet skis.
