Achieving a most impressive feat, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline has become the first and only pickup truck to ever earn a Top Safety Pick+ designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
The IIHS Top Safety Pick awards single out vehicles in any given model year that are considered to be the very best in terms of safety and crash test performance.
The very highest ranking the IIHS bestows is its Top Safety Pick+, which was added to the organization’s roster of safety awards in 2013. Since the Top Safety Pick+ designation was instituted, pickup truck models have received the lesser Top Safety Pick title, but this year marks the first time a truck model has been named a Top Safety Pick+ vehicle. That truck is, of course, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline.
When equipped with optional front crash prevention features and specific headlights, the Ridgeline is a Top Safety Pick+ designee, boasting the highest rating of “Good” in IIHS-conducted crash tests of small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraints and seats.
The Ridgeline further claimed a “Superior” rating for front crash prevention and received an “A” grade for the ease of use of its child seat anchors.
Equipped for Safety
Like the other high-quality vehicles on Honda’s roster, the Ridgeline features a wide assortment of both active and passive safety equipment.
Included among these safety offerings is the Honda Sensing suite of technologies, which includes features like a Collision Mitigation Braking System with Forward Collision Warning, Road Departure Mitigation with Lane Departure Warning, a Lane Keeping Assist System, and Adaptive Cruise Control.
Onboard every new Honda vehicle, drivers will find standard features like a rearview camera, Honda’s exclusive Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure, Vehicle Stability Assist with traction control, an anti-lock braking system, and advanced airbag systems.
