Honda's 2017 model-year Ridgeline mid-size pickup will arrive at dealers on June 21 with a significant refresh that includes improved driving dynamics, updated styling, and a bed storage locker, Honda has announced.

The 2017-MY Ridgeline will retail for at least $29,475 for the front-wheel RT and at least $31,275 for the all-wheel RT model. Higher trim grades include the RTS, Sport, RTL, RTL-T, RTL-E, and Black Edition.

The Ridgeline arrives with more traditional truck styling compared to the outgoing model. It will arrive with an "in-bed truck" storage locker, dual-action tailgate, and in-bed audio system.

A 3.5L direct-injected V-6 powers the Ridgeline, delivering power via a 6-speed transmission. The front-wheel Ridgeline gets an EPA-rated 26 mpg on the highway, 19 mpg in the city, and 22 mpg combined.
