2014 Honda Ridgeline Special Edition
The base model of the 2014 Honda Ridgeline was released last September, but Honda has been holding out on the higher-end trims—until now that is. The manufacturer just announced that the 2014 Honda Ridgeline Special Edition is officially available for sale. If you’re wondering what exactly separates the SE trim from the base model, let’s take a look.
The upgrades of the SE trim start with the Special Edition badging on the real tailgate as well as some bigger shoes. Wheel well-filling 18-inch aluminum alloys are not only standard, but exclusive to the special edition model, and they are outfitted with stylish black-trimmed spokes. The touches of black continue with a sleek black trim package which helps to give the pickup an unbelievably sophisticated look. Black can be found on the headlight and brake light housing, on the tailgate and all over the honeycomb grille.
The black trim package also finds its way into the interior where the Ridgeline SE receives a few more special touches. All of the seats are wrapped in black leather, including the 60/40 split lift-up rear seat with under-seat storage. The special edition is also equipped with a dash-mounted display screen which comes loaded with a voice-activated Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System.
Perhaps the greatest part of the Ridgeline SE is that it includes all of the features of the base model. Nothing is left behind. You still get the innovative truck bed that offers an extra 8.5 cubic feet of storage in the lockable in-bed trunk. Accessing the trunk is also easy in the Ridgeline which employs a class-exclusive dual-action tailgate. The tailgate swings down like a normal tailgate, but it also swings open like a door, making it easy to reach the back of the truck bed without having to climb into it.
The release of the Special Edition Honda Ridgeline proves that good things come to those who wait.
