Ride-Boosting Amenities

The Honda Ridgeline has garnered widespread attention during the 2017 model year due to its lineup of world firsts. Two of the Ridgeline’s first-in-the-industry amenities are among the various features that come standard onboard the Ridgeline but not the Nissan Frontier.

For example, the world’s first dual-action tailgate is one of the 2017 Ridgeline’s standout features that isn’t available on the Nissan Frontier or any other current pickup truck. This pioneering tailgate can open two ways: It can be folded down vertically like any other tailgate, and it can also be opened horizontally like a door.

The industry’s very first in-bed trunk is another of the Ridgeline’s standard amenities that aren’t available onboard the Frontier or any other pickup. Integrated right into the bed of each Ridgeline model is a lockable trunk that delivers 7.3 cubic feet of cargo space and even features a drain plug so it can be used as an ice chest.

Other features that come standard for the Ridgeline models but not the Frontier trims include:

  • Bluetooth connectivity
  • Remote vehicle start
  • Maintenance Minder system
  • Active Noise Cancellation
  • Auto-on/off headlights
  • Daytime running lights
  • Variable Cylinder Management
  • Capless fuel filler and locking fuel door
  • Easy tire fill system
  • Rear stabilizer bar
  • Telescopic steering wheel
