In order to help showcase the incredible 2017 Honda Ridgeline, Frank Ancona Honda is providing another contest for our followers. Starting Monday, August 15, 2016 through October 15, 2016, contestants will be able to enter our contest by simply heading over to our Facebook page and liking and commenting on the contest post with who you would go on a date with for an evening. Winners receive dinner and transportation on us for their date night!
Once per month a single winner will be selected. Each winner will be provided a 24-hour test drive of one of our incredible 2017 Honda Ridgeline trucks to use as transportation as they go to the restaurant Rosso, located at the top of the Sorella Hotel at the Country Club Plaza. Frank Ancona Honda will pay for dinner for two with an allowance of up to $200.
The Honda Ridgeline was chosen as the date night vehicle due to its styling as a truck that is perfect for everyone, even those that do not work construction or use the hauling feature often. Car and Driver had a lot of positive notes about the vehicle including the vehicle’s new form. The truck’s structure is the same as the Honda Pilot crossover. From the front the truck looks identical to the Pilot that just had the last row of seats opened up and removed. According to a report to Car and Driver, the front structure is actually 17 percent stronger than that of the Pilot, while the rear is 31 percent sturdier. While the truck actually has a lower hauling capacity when compared to other trucks this vehicle is targeted to customers to be an everyday kind of truck that is less clumsy.

Honda will unveil the all-new 2017 Ridgeline pickup at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit on January 11, 2016, replacing the award-winning first-generation Ridgeline that has been on the market since 2005.
According to Honda’s website, when the Ridgeline was introduced, it redefined pickups by blurring the lines between full size versatility and compact practicality. The new 2017 model will further improve on the space, comfort and utility that made the original model one of the most forward-thinking vehicles in its class.
Following the 2017 Ridgeline’s world debut at the Detroit Auto Show, the all-new model will make its television debut during a 60-second TV spot during the 3rd quarter of Super Bowl 50.
In a Honda press release, Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda Automobile Division, said, “The big game is the largest and most coveted stage to show the truck. Super Bowl 50 is the right time and the right venue to communicate Honda’s continued leadership in light trucks. The multi-platform approach will enable Ridgeline to come out of the gate strong in 2016.”
The new 2017 Ridgeline is set to launch at Honda dealerships nationwide within the first half of 2016, joining Honda’s expanded lineup of innovative light truck models, including the HR-V crossover, the CR-V, Pilot and the Odyssey minivan.
In an article posted on Autoweek, Conrad said, “We developed this new Honda Ridgeline to offer something new and fundamentally better suited to the way many buyers use their truck. Ridgeline will deliver everything you’d expect in a Honda from incredible packaging and fuel-efficiency to top safety technologies and innovative, segment-first features. We’re honored to once again debut the Ridgeline in Detroit at the North American International Auto Show.”
