2017 Honda Ridgeline Engine Specs & Performance
The 2017 Honda Ridgeline comes with a 3.5L V6 engine that’s paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. This engine has the ability to deliver 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque, but thanks to the high-capacity radiator that has two high powered fans, the vehicle can easily achieve its top performance while reducing the risk of the engine overheating. The Direct Fuel Injection limits the amount of fuel that gets wasted by only delivering the fuel that the engine actually needs to perform.

When you’re figuring out your next pickup, getting the sense of what it can actually do can go a long way into making your decision.
