How does the Honda Ridgeline Dual-Action Tailgate work?

There’s a lot to love on the 2017 Honda Ridgeline truck. This midsize model combines car-like handling, maneuverable dimensions, and the versatile cargo-hauling options of a traditional pickup. One of the attractive features of this vehicle is the dual-action tailgate, which can give drivers even more options for loading and unloading. Wondering how does the Honda Ridgeline dual-action tailgate work? Read on!

How does the Honda Ridgeline Dual-Action Tailgate work?

The dual-action tailgate that comes standard on the 2017 Honda Ridgeline can either fold down like a traditional pickup’s tailgate, or it can open outward on the driver’s side more like a door. This can make it easier to load the pickup bed with cargo. In order to switch between the traditional up and down bed opening and the outward door, driver hits a switch under the edge of the tailgate, and the specialized joints will allow the door to swing open.

Other Honda Truck Bed Features

Other attractive truck bed features available on select trims of the Ridgeline include a built-in electricity plug, a Truck Bed Audio speaker system, and lockable In-Bed Trunk® (which can double as a cooler thanks to being water tight and having a drain in the bottom!). Learn about all of these in our past post about the things we love about the bed of the 2017 Ridgeline.
