For most pickup drivers, the truck bed is the first stop for storage, but we want to highlight the 2017 Honda Ridgeline cabin cargo capacity. Whether you need to fill all five seats or have to make room for large or awkward cargo, the 109.7 cubic feet of the cabin ensures the Ridgeline is ready, and these storage features make the most of each cubic foot.
Console Storage: In the front row between the driver and passenger seats is a console storage area with a USB port and a charging outlet for your gadgets. With room for a 10-inch tablet, your center console should have plenty of space for a smartphone, wallet, purse, or other accessories.
60/40-Split Folding Rear Seat: The rear seat of the Ridgeline fits up to three passengers, but its 60/40-split folding design lets you easily reduce that to two, one, or zero seats to make room for cargo. With the seats folded up, you have space from floor to ceiling for a flat-screen TV or a full-size bike.
Rear Under-Seat Storage: All the seats are full? You still have 2.9 cubic feet of cargo storage under the rear seats for passengers’ bags or your essential tools.
The Ridgeline’s cabin has been engineered to fit the needs of the average truck driver, making it one of the most versatile midsize cabs we’ve seen.
From just a glance at the cabin, it’s clear that the 2017 Honda Ridgeline cargo capacity and storage specs were on the minds of engineers early on. At 60 inches wide and 64 inches long, the Ridgeline bed has plenty of space to start with, and features from the last generation like the lockable in-bed trunk join new features like the dual-action tailgate to make it easy to get the most out of your truck.
Hidden Wheel Wells: Most midsize pickup trucks have a problem with hauling essential construction materials—the wheels get in the way. Hidden rear wheel wells let you easily slide a 4-foot-wide piece of sheetrock or plywood into the Ridgeline bed. Laying materials flat against the bed reduces the risk of damage from a stray bump or sliding tools.
Deep Bed: With 33.9 cubic feet of storage space, the bed of each Ridgeline has room for everything from oversized drill and saw carrying cases to fully loaded tool boxes to 5-gallon buckets, and that’s before loading up the in-bed trunk.
In-Bed Trunk: One of the most popular Ridgeline features is back for the new generation, bringing 7.3 cubic feet of cargo storage that’s lockable and out of sight. More than just a secure box in the truck bed, the trunk features a drain for easy cleaning and easy emptying of ice when it doubles as a tailgating cooler.
Dual-Action Tailgate: The Ridgeline tailgate opens traditionally, folding down to slide supplies out or make room for longer cargo, but it also opens at the side so you can easily hop up into the bed when needed.
SMC Composite Bed: Ridgeline truck beds are made out of heavy-duty SMC composite plastic, designed to hide scratches and scuffs while steel beds on competing trucks require bed liners to protect from damage.
In-Bed Tie-Downs: Secure heavy and awkwardly sized cargo with the standard bed-mounted tie-downs. All it takes are some bungie cords or a cargo net to keep in-bed cargo from sliding around.
If all of these features have you filling up the truck bed to capacity, don’t worry. The 2017 Honda Ridgeline AWD can tow as much as 5,000 pounds (3,500 pounds on 2WD models), letting you load up a trailer with construction gear, a 4×4, and more.
