The 2017 Honda Ridgeline Is the Only Pickup to Get IIHS Top Safety Pick+

January 8th, 2017 by

2017-Honda-Ridgeline-RTL-TThe Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has bestowed upon the 2017 Honda Ridgeline its highest rating of Top Safety Pick+, making it the first and only pickup truck to earn the honor. The recognition speaks to Honda’s relentless dedication to bring the latest and most sophisticated technological and safety advancements to its models—from the Ridgeline to the Civic and every vehicle in between.

Safety in All Honda Models

All 2017 Honda models come equipped with a multi-angle rearview camera, a feature that drivers would be hard-pressed to find on comparable entry-level vehicles. The camera allows drivers to switch between a normal view, wide view, and a top-down view, so all the surroundings of your Honda can be seen clearly and drivers can back in and out of tight spaces much more safely. Other safety features that drivers will find in every Honda model include:

  • Advance Compatibility Engineering (ACE) Body Structure
  • Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control
  • Anti-lock Braking System
  • Side Curtain Airbags
  • Advanced Front Airbags
  • Front Side Airbags

Recognizing the 2017 Honda Ridgeline

The IIHS recognized the Honda Ridgeline for the above safety features, its high-rated LED headlights, and also because of the available Honda Sensing package—a suite of technology and driving aids. In addition to the Ridgeline, Honda Sensing is available on the Civic, Accord, CR-V, and Pilot and includes features that help drivers see more, do more, and drive more safely on the road. The suite includes technologies such as:

  • Collision Mitigation System
  • Forward Collision Warning
  • Road Departure Mitigation
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Lane Keeping Assist
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
