Honda Ridgeline Is the Only Pickup With These Safety Honors

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline has made headlines after earning a recent honor which no other pickup in the U.S. has achieved. The National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA) bestowed the truck with a 2017 5-Star Overall Vehicle Rating* due to its excellent performance in several crash tests. Ridgeline pulled 5 stars in the organization’s front and side crash tests, along with scoring 4 stars in the rollover test.

In addition to its recent honor from the NHTSA, the Ridgeline with Honda Sensing and LED Headlights shows off a 2017 Top Safety Pick+ award** from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety – again, a feat no other pickup has accomplished up to this point. To clinch the elite award, the Ridgeline passed five tough crashworthiness tests and provided an available front crash prevention system that received passing marks from the IIHS. New this year, headlight quality was also taken into account and Ridgeline excelled in this area, too.

Ridgeline’s list of standard safety features is comprehensive, including highlights such as:

  • Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure
  • Vehicle Stability Assist with traction control
  • Anti-lock brakes
  • Side Curtain Airbags
  • Advanced front airbags
  • Front side airbags

Additionally, the Honda Ridgeline RTL-E and Black Editions are standard with the Honda Sensing safety suite, which includes:

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