  • Honda Ridgeline

    In addition to bringing a lineup of first-ever features to the automotive industry, one of the most innovative pickup trucks ever to hit the road is also replete with state-of-the-art protective technologies that give drivers and passengers greater peace of mind. The feature-rich 2017 Honda Ridgeline safety features truly are on the cutting edge. Keep reading as we explore them in detail!

State-of-the-Art Safety

Offering more safety and driver-assist amenities than one can shake the proverbial stick at, the Honda Ridgeline is eminently geared up to keep its passengers safer out on the road. Among its advanced safety features are the following available offerings:


Ridgeline Honda Sensing

Forward Collision Warning and Collision Mitigation Braking System: Working together, these two available features help protect drivers from frontal collisions. Forward Collision Warning monitors for potential collisions and alerts the driver when a possible crash is detected. When it has been sensed that an accident is unavoidable, the Collision Mitigation Braking System can apply full braking power to help reduce the impact of the crash or even avoid it altogether.

Ridgeline Road Departure

Road Departure Mitigation System: If the Ridgeline begins to leave its designated lane without the turn signal first being activated, the Road Departure Mitigation System goes into action. Lane Departure Warning alerts the driver about the unintended lane drift so that corrective action can be taken. Steering wheel vibrations and torque are then applied, and braking power may be applied, as well.

Ridgeline Lane Keeping Assist

Lane Keeping Assist System: When the Ridgeline is traveling between speeds of 45 and 90 mph, the available Lane Keeping Assist System can subtly adjust steering to help keep the truck centered in its designated lane.

Ridgeline LaneWatch

Honda LaneWatch: This feature employs a camera that is integrated into the passenger-side mirror and delivers live images of what is in the adjacent lane on that side of the vehicle, helping drivers change lanes and make right-hand turns much more safely.

Ridgeline Adaptive Cruise

Adaptive Cruise Control: With Adaptive Cruise Control, the driver can input a desired speed and following distance and then tackle highway traffic more conveniently and confidently than ever before. This system tracks the vehicle ahead of the Ridgeline and automatically works to maintain the desired following distance between the Ridgeline and that vehicle, applying brake force when necessary.

Ridgeline Blindspot Information

Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Monitor: Both of these features help protect drivers from the things they can’t see. The Ridgeline’s Blind Spot Information System lets drivers know when there is a vehicle in the truck’s blind spot, issuing both visual and audio warnings. The Cross Traffic Monitor helps drivers back up more safely by alerting them when another vehicle is approaching when the Ridgeline is in reverse.

Standard Safety

The Honda Ridgeline also serves up a robust array of standard safety features that can be found onboard each of the Ridgeline trims. Included among them are amenities like Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control, an anti-lock braking system, electronic brake distribution, a multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines, daytime running lights, and much more.

The following safety features also come standard onboard the Ridgeline:

  • Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure is a Honda-exclusive vehicle construction that helps evenly distribute crash energy in an accident to better protect vehicle occupants.
  • A Tire Pressure Monitoring System with Tire Fill Assist and location and pressure indicators helps drivers avoid the dangers and inconveniences of a tire going flat out on the road. If any of the Ridgeline’s tires becomes low, this system lets drivers know exactly which tire it is and how low it has become. Tire Fill Assist then helps drivers restore the affected tire to its proper inflation level without the necessity of a handheld pressure gauge.
  • The Brake Assist system detects hard braking and emergency braking situations and automatically applies full braking force when it is needed to help shorten the Ridgeline’s braking distance.
  • The Ridgeline further comes equipped with standard SmartVent front side airbags and side curtain airbags with rollover sensor. SmartVent airbags use speed and seat sensors to detect the size of the front passenger, and then the system adjusts airbag deployment accordingly or shuts the side airbags off altogether. The rollover sensor is designed to detect collisions during a side impact and send data to a control unit. When the sensors detect a severe impact, the appropriate side airbag is signaled to immediately inflate into the space between the door and the passenger sitting next to it to protect that passenger.
