Your Portland Honda Ridgeline dealer is pleased to pronounce the safety information on the 2017 Honda Ridgeline, for sale in Oregon at Dick’s Hillsboro Honda. For further information, please contact us at (866) 973-3693.

As with all Honda vehicles, the 2017 Ridgeline is designed to provide a high level of safety performance, starting with predictable and stable driving dynamics that help drivers maintain control over their vehicle in a wide variety of driving environments and circumstances, including emergency avoidance maneuvers.

Contributing to the Ridgeline’s active safety performance is a comprehensive range of features that include Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control, Motion-Adaptive Electric Power Steering (EPS), Brake Assist and 4-Channel ABS with Electronic Brake Distribution. The Ridgeline’s new i-VTM4 all-wheel-drive system with dynamic torque vectoring adds an additional degree of handling prowess and all-weather traction.

Significantly advancing Honda’s commitment to advanced safety technology, the 2017 Ridgeline can be equipped Honda Sensing™, a suite of technologies designed to expand the driver’s situational awareness while also sensing and responding to potential road hazards including other vehicles, road obstacles and even pedestrians.

To help mitigate the severity of a frontal collision and occupant injuries, the Ridgeline utilizes Honda’s next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, which works in concert with a new “3-bone” front floor structure and new hot-stamped steel door rings. Passive safety features including dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags (SRS), driver and front passenger side airbags, adjustable head restraints and Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren (LATCH) also provide a high level of protection in the event of collision.

Combining these technologies, the 2017 Ridgeline targets the highest possible safety ratings from both the NHTSA and IIHS: an NCAP 5-star Overall Vehicle Score and an IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating and top marks (NCAP 5-star and IIHS GOOD) in all crash test modes.
