Experience Limitless Utility in the 2018 Honda Ridgeline

The 2018 Honda Ridgeline is arriving now at Capital Region Honda Dealers, and those who’ve had the chance to drive it are almost all in agreement: There’s nothing this pickup truck can’t do! The experts at Car and Driver have been especially ardent in their praise, noting that the Ridgeline’s “comfortable cabin,” “refined road manners,” and “innovative cargo box” make it “the best midsize pickup money can buy.” The Honda Ridgeline’s utility, power, and performance will give you everything you’ll need to tackle even the toughest jobs, and like the rest of Honda’s all-wheel drive lineup, it’s available with tons of accessories that can make your life a whole lot easier. Curious drivers can get a better sense of what the Ridgeline is offering by reading our breakdown below, but there’s no substitute for time spent behind the wheel! Once you’ve seen enough, be sure to take the Ridgeline for a test drive.

Power and Performance in the Ridgeline

The 2018 Honda Ridgeline’s engine and drivetrain are the foundations of its utility, and it’s not hard to see why! Every Ridgeline trim comes standard with a 3.5L V6 engine and 24-valve SOHC i-VTEC, as well as variable cylinder management and an active control engine mount system, which together help this pickup to produce 280 hp and up to 262 lb-ft of torque. What’s more, as with many of the Ridgeline’s performance-enhancing technology features, snow-ready intelligent traction management comes standard right from the start.

By upgrading to the Sport trim level or higher, you’ll also be able to take advantage of the available Intelligent Variable Torque Management (i-VTM4) all-wheel drive system, which comes standard on the upper-level RTL-E and Black Edition trims. Those who do opt for this upgrade will be able to utilize their Intelligent traction management in sandy and muddy environments, too. A 6-speed manual transmission comes standard in all six of the Ridgeline’s trims, and in the RTL-E and Black Edition models, it’s been outfitted with a heavy-duty transmission cooler that will let you work harder for longer.

Additional Ridgeline standard features like unit-body construction, MacPherson strut front suspension, multi-link rear suspension, and 18-inch alloy wheels allow drivers to take full advantage of this pickup’s exceptional drivetrain. On top of all this, it’s worth noting that the Ridgeline has what it takes to traverse any off-road path that catches your eye: 2WD models offer 7.28 inches of unladen ground clearance, while AWD models offer 7.87 inches of the same.

Ridgeline Towing Capacity and Cargo Storage

2018 Honda Ridgeline Towing

There’s no point in buying a powerful pickup truck that can’t haul cargo, though of course, the Ridgeline has impressive capacities in this regard as well. Standard front and rear stabilizer bars make the Ridgeline well-equipped for towing jobs, and when you’re on the jobsite, you’ll be able to pull up to 3,500 pounds in 2WD models and up to 5,000 pounds in AWD models! Of course, not every job calls for the use of a trailer hitch, and more often than not, you’ll be able to find the utility you’re looking for in the Ridgeline’s innovative cargo bed.
The latter, which measures 64×50 inches, can handle a maximum payload that varies among trim levels, but never falls short of 1,465 pounds. With 33.9 cubic feet of cargo bed storage and 7.3 cubic feet of volume in the Ridgeline’s in-bed trunk, you’ll have the space and versatility you’ll need to transport an enormous variety of cargo. A dual-action tailgate, truck bed lights, and eight heavy-duty truck bed tie-down cleats, it’s easy to load up and secure even the bulkiest, most unwieldly equipment.

Accessories and Available Options

The Ridgeline is available with dozens of interior, exterior, and electronic accessories, and potential buyers are encouraged to explore them all! To help you get started, we’ve chosen to highlight a few options that are sure to be of interest to folks who want to maximize their pickup’s utility.

  • Bed Extender: Drivers can equip their Ridgeline with an extra 16 inches of cargo bed storage space. Just lay your tailgate flat and attach the extender to get started. A motorcycle-ready bed extender is also available.
  • Tent: The innovators at Honda have designed an easy-to-use tent that fits right on your Ridgeline’s cargo bed. You’ll find that it is useful in all sorts of different scenarios, from outdoor parties to camping trips!
  • Backup Sensors: Maneuvering around your jobsite is easy when you have the Ridgeline’s optional backup sensors on your side. These color-matched accessories beep faster as you approach an obstacle.
  • Roof Rails: Roof rails, available in black or silver, greatly enhance the range of cargo that your Ridgeline can carry comfortably. Additional rooftop-attachment accessories are available for skis, snowboards, kayaks, and bicycles.
