2019 Honda Ridgeline Performance

The 2019 Honda Ridgeline is an innovative pickup truck with a lot to offer drivers. Inside, the Ridgeline is host to an impressive amount of comfort, convenience, and technology features that make life on the road easier and more enjoyable. But it’s the powertrain, drivetrain, and other features that make the Ridgeline a tough pickup ready for just about any job or any adventure. The reviewers at Edmunds, noting the Ridgeline’s “class-leading ride comfort,” are quick to acknowledge that “you don’t miss out on terms of utility either,” making the Ridgeline a versatile and all-around excellent choice on the road.

Engine and Transmission

Under the hood of the Ridgeline is a 3.5L V6 engine that produces a powerful and capable performance on the road. With 280 horsepower and 262 lb.-ft of torque, the Ridgeline is capable on the road and offers quick acceleration, which makes trickier driving situations, such as merging or passing, much easier. The transmission of the Ridgeline is a 6-speed automatic and expertly transfers the power generated under the hood to either the two front wheels or to all wheels, depending on whether you choose 2WD or AWD.

Active Safety Features that Boost Performance

The Ridgeline is set apart from many other utility vehicles and pickup trucks with a unique commitment to safety. It includes a long list of driver-assistive technology, including the Honda Sensing suite, but it’s the list of active safety features that also works to enhance the Ridgeline’s performance on the road.

  • Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control – This system corrects oversteering or understeering and provides more stability during cornering. It also ensures the Ridgeline maintains good tractive control with the road.
  • Anti-Lock Braking System – This system prevents the brakes from locking up, which can cause dangerous skidding across road surfaces.
  • Electronic Brake Distribution – This system varies the amount of braking pressure applied to each of the four wheels for a more optimal performance.
  • Brake Assist – This system helps the Ridgeline come to a complete stop more quickly and safely in an emergency braking system.
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System – This system helps drivers keep track of the tire pressure in each of the four wheels, and issue a notification when one or more needs to be inflated for a safer, and more optimal performance on the road.
  • Daytime Running Lights – Ensures that the Ridgeline is clearly visible to other drivers while also illuminating the way ahead, even amid changes in the weather or light conditions.

Ground Clearance

As a capable utility vehicle, the Ridgeline has an impressive ground clearance. A high ground clearance can more easily go off the road without damaging or scraping the underside body with variations in the terrain. The ground clearance will vary slightly depending on whether 2WD or AWD:

  • 2WD – 7.28 inches
  • AWD – 7.87 inches

Towing Capacity

The towing capacity of the Ridgeline will also vary depending on whether the 2WD or AWD configuration is right for you. Trying to exceed your vehicle’s towing capacity can be unsafe and damaging to your vehicle, but for most drivers the Ridgeline offers plenty of potential for towing substantial loads—from lightweight trailer and jet skis, to RVs and speed boats.

  • 3,500 lbs. with 2WD
  • 5,000 lbs. with AWD
