2017 Honda Ridgeline Priced at $29,475
Surprising us all, the base price of the 2017 Honda Ridgeline will be set at $29,475. The truck should arrive in dealerships this Spring. Assuming no car-maker dramatically raises its pricing for the 2017 model year, the Ridgeline will be the highest priced mid-size truck on the market.
- 2017 Honda Ridgeline – Starting at $29,475
- 2016 Toyota Tacoma – Starting at $23,660
- 2016 Chevrolet Colorado – Starting at $21,000
- 2016 GMC Canyon – Starting at $20,955
- 2016 Nissan Frontier – $18,290
So we’re left asking, why such a high price? Keep in mind, this is the base price. Load up the Ridgeline with bells and whistles, and you’ll have a truck over $40,000.
At first glance, the Ridgeline seems like one of the most innovative trucks on the market. Features like a truck-bed audio system, dual-action tailgate, in-bed trunk, and versatile backseat are all jaw-droppers. The Ridgeline can tow up to 5,000 lbs, and is equipped with the same 3.5L V6 you can find in the 2016 Pilot. Early reviews suggest the Ridgeline offers the most composed ride in its class, while keeping up with the competition in terms of capability. Will the truck-buyers be wooed out of $30,000+ for an unconventional Honda truck? We’ll see.

Chevy is Bringing the Chevrolet Cavalier Back… in China
Remember the Chevy Cavalier? The once uber-popular little Chevrolet car of the ‘80s and ‘90s will allegedly return to Chinese roads in the near future. The Cavalier will be slightly smaller than the Chevy Cruze, and will look quite similar to other 2016 Chevy sedans. Powered by a 1.5L 4-cylinder engine that produces just under 110 hp, the Cavalier is economy-focused.
