Honda Shows Off New 2017 Ridgeline at SEMA 2015, Sorta

Posted by: Kenny Chan onNovember 6th, 2015


If you’ve been at any car show in the past couple years you’ll no doubt have heard Honda extolling the virtues of the Acura NSX. That’s because they haven’t really had anything exciting to announce and whenever they did unveil new vehicles like the MDX and TLX, I swear they spent more time talking about the NSX than the car they were about to pull the tarps off of. Here at SEMA, it’s no different. Honda wants you to know that even if you might not be in the market for an NSX, the NSX DNA lurks in all of their vehicles.

All kidding aside, Honda did preview their next-generation 2017 Ridgeline in the form of a race-prepped Baja off-road racing truck. We’ve only seen teaser preview renders up until now so this is the closest look we’ve had to the new Ridgeline. What we know so far is that it will share a platform with the recently released Pilot, and we will likely see it unveiled in Detroit in January, or possibly even as soon as LA in a couple weeks. The new Ridgeline is supposed to be available for order late next year.

Another cool gem in the Honda booth was the matte white HR-V towing a white Grom as well as the immaculate Acura Legend that was roped off along with the blue NSX. The Legend belongs to rapper turned actor Ludacris and was restored by Acura after it was damaged in an accident.
