  • Honda Ridgeline

    Drivers all across America have long desired a pickup truck that could keep up with the demands of labor and leisure in the 21st century, and for Central Illinois drivers, the wait is finally over. The 2017 Honda Ridgeline has just arrived at dealerships near you, and there’s no better time than now to find out what this vehicle can do. Less forward-thinking manufacturers have been quick to write off the value of high-performing entertainment, convenience, and safety technologies, but the same cannot be said for Honda! In the Ridgeline, pickup drivers will be able to remain connected and in control no matter how far they venture from the beaten path.

Inside the Cabin: Connectivity and Entertainment Features

Pickup buyers and manufacturers often place heavy emphasis on their vehicles’ drivetrains and truck beds, but your pickup needs to do more than haul cargo if it’s going to help you achieve your full potential. In the 2017 Honda Ridgeline, accessible and easy-to-use features like HondaLink and voice recognition will let you stay in communication with all of your loved ones and colleagues!  A Display Audio touchscreen with built-in satellite navigation further enhances your ability to master difficult environments. On top of all this, the available stereo options in the 2017 Ridgeline make this vehicle into an entertainment powerhouse that the whole family is sure to enjoy.
