Unlike most of the models in its segment, the 2019 Honda Ridgeline can be equipped with a complete set of automated driving aids. The Honda Sensing safety features place an extra layer of protection between you and all the road’s surprises, so you can get enjoyment out of every drive. They come standard on the RTL-E and Black Edition trim levels.
Collision Mitigation Braking System: Using front-facing cameras and sensors, the Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) can stop your vehicle automatically if it detects an obstacle in your path. In the event of an emergency, the Ridgeline’s Forward Collision Warning (FCW) will first beep to alert you of the danger. If this warning is insufficient, the CMBS will bring your vehicle to a rapid halt.
Lane Departure Protection: The Ridgeline’s Lane Departure Warning (LDW) provides an auditory warning whenever it determines that you’re in danger of exiting your lane without your turn signal. At the same time, both the Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) and the Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) feature work to keep you centered in your lane of choice, gently guiding you along the road.
Adaptive Cruise Control: Tired of switching in and out of cruise control on your daily commutes? Honda has a solution. The Honda Ridgeline’s Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Low-Speed Follow features can take the stress out of driving. Just set your preferred speed and follow distance and let this truck’s on-board computer take care of the rest.
The Honda Ridgeline may be best known for its intelligent driver-assistive features, but these aren’t the only technologies that give the Ridgeline an edge in real-world driving conditions. As with all of Honda’s all-wheel drive vehicles, the Ridgeline boasts a standard suite of active and passive safety features that maximize your agility and minimize the risks of collisions.
Daytime Running Headlights: Daytime Running Headlights come standard on every Ridgeline trim level, and right from the start they turn on and off automatically. Fog Lights come standard on the Sport trim and up, and LED Low-Beam Headlights come standard on the RTL-E and Black Edition trim levels. No matter which model you choose, you’ll enjoy superior visibility around the clock.
Advanced Compatibility Engineering: There’s no substitute for a solid foundation. The 2019 Ridgeline has been designed with Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure and Unit-Body Construction. ACE allows the Ridgeline shift the most dangerous collision forces away from passengers by collapsing in some sections while remaining rigid in others. Unit-Body construction—an alternative to the frame-on-body design employed by most pickups—makes the Ridgeline more stable than competitors.
Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: Whether you’re backing into a tight parking spot or maneuvering with heavy cargo, you’re sure to appreciate the advantages offered by the Ridgeline’s Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Guidelines. Dynamic Guidelines, which move as you turn the steering wheel, come standard on the RTL-T trim level and up.
Vehicle Stability Assist and All-Wheel Drive: Every Ridgeline comes standard with Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) and snow-ready Intelligent Traction Control. On the Sport trim level and up, the Ridgeline can also be equipped with Intelligent Variable Torque Management (i-VTM4) All-Wheel Drive, which maximizes passenger safety by preemptively shifting power to the wheels with the greatest traction. I-VTM4 also allows your Intelligent Traction Control to function in the sand and the mud.
