A Look Under the Hood

The power source for each Ridgeline model is a direct-injected 3.5L SOHC i-VTEC V6 engine, serving up 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. This sturdy engine is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

The Ridgeline’s standard engine output is superior to that of rival trucks like the 2016 Nissan Frontier, whose base engine produces just 152 hp and 171 lb-ft of torque. The 2016 Toyota Tacoma base model generates only 159 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque, while the 2016 Chevy Colorado base engine brings just 200 hp and 191 lb-ft of torque.

The Ridgeline also provides an array of performance-boosting extras, such as variable cylinder management, an Eco-Assist System, Hill Start Assist, a high-capacity radiator with two high-power fans, and an available heavy-duty transmission cooler.

Towing and Hauling

Honda Ridgeline
Whether you’re towing a boat for a weekend of recreation at the lake or hauling a big load for work, the Ridgeline has the muscle to make it happen.

Ridgeline AWD models flex towing muscle that can pull 5,000 pounds, while Ridgeline 2WD models serve up 3,500 pounds of towing power.

The Ridgeline also comes pre-wired for towing, while the Chevy Colorado, Toyota Tacoma, and Nissan Frontier don’t.

In terms of payload capacity, the Ridgeline can handle a payload of up to 1,588 pounds.

Fuel Economy

The Ridgeline is near the head of its segment where gas mileage achievement is concerned, with 2WD models delivering EPA-estimated fuel economy of 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.* Ridgeline AWD models achieve EPA-estimated fuel economy of 18 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.*

In comparison to some of its top competitors, the Ridgeline’s fuel economy superiority is clear: The Chevy Colorado 4×4 models equipped with V6 engines achieve just 17 city mpg and 24 highway mpg. The Toyota Tacoma 4×4 models equipped with V6 engines deliver between 17 and 18 city mpg and 20 and 23 highway mpg. Fuel economy for the Nissan Frontier 4×4 models is just 15 city mpg and 21 highway mpg.

Intelligent Handling

Honda Ridgeline
Performance goes even further onboard the 2017 Ridgeline thanks to its new push-button Intelligent Traction Management System, which comes standard.

In the Ridgeline AWD models, the Intelligent Traction Management system includes four operating modes: Normal, Snow, Mud, and Sand. Two modes are available in the Ridgeline 2WD models: Normal and Snow.

This system helps enable higher fuel economy ratings in the 2WD models and helps the AWD trims tackle slick roadways, inclement weather conditions, and varying terrains with ease.

The 2017 Ridgeline also features an available Intelligent Variable Torque Management (i-VTM4) AWD system, which gives it added handling ability in sand and other low-traction conditions.

The i-VTM4 AWD system is superior to four-wheel drive, as it has no transfer case, so the driver doesn’t have to take a hand in selecting high, low, or 4×4 mode. In the Ridgeline, the driver just pushes a button on the center console to choose Snow, Mud, Sand, or Normal as the options show up on the instrument panel display. From there, the system’s preprogrammed algorithms go into action to do all the thinking regarding which wheels need power and how much power they need to achieve peak traction.
