The Ridgeline’s cargo space and payload ratings are some of the best you’ll find in a mid-size pickup, and its cleverly designed exterior features make it one of the most capable models in the segment. What’s more, the Ridgeline’s tow rating gives its drivers the ability to tackle almost any job.
Truck Bed Capacities: The Honda Ridgeline’s Truck Bed measures 64 inches long with the tailgate up or 83 inches with the tailgate down. It comes standard with Truck Bed Tie-Down Cleats that can secure up to 350 lbs., and the Ridgeline’s maximum payload ranges from 1465 lbs. to 1580 lbs., depending on which trim you choose. The open-air portion of the Ridgeline’s truck bed can store up to 33.9 cu. ft. of cargo.
Ridgeline Tow Rating: The Ridgeline comes standard with an Integrated Class III towing hitch, and that means you’ll be able to tow up to 3500 lbs. the moment you drive it off the lot—and that’s with 2WD! Those who upgrade to Intelligent Variable Torque Management All-Wheel Drive, available on the Sport trim and up, will increase their tow rating to 5000 lbs.
Dual Action Tailgate and Unit-Body Construction: Every Ridgeline has been built with a Dual-Action Tailgate that can lay flat or swing to the side, making it easier than ever to load heavy cargo without straining your back and your arms. Unit-Body Construction improves performance by making the Ridgeline more stable, but it also allows for a lower floor height without compromising your ground clearance.
Accessories: Transporting bulky, messy, and oddly shaped equipment can get a whole lot easier with the Ridgeline’s available exterior accessories. You’ll have more than three dozen to choose from, including a Bed Extender, a Roof Mounted Bicycle Attachment, In-Bed Trunk Cargo Dividers, a Roof Box, and much more.
There’s no denying that the Ridgeline is one of the most exciting vehicles in Honda’s All-Wheel Drive lineup! In addition to the segment-leading capacities identified above, the Ridgeline offers an efficient, high-power engine. With the Ridgeline’s impressive ground clearance and available Intelligent Variable Torque Management AWD, you’ll never be confined to the beaten path.
3.5-Liter V-6 Engine: The Ridgeline’s 3.5-Liter V-6 engine can generate 280 hp at 6000 RPM, and 262 lb.-ft. of torque at 4700 RPM, giving you all the power you’ll need to go on the adventures you’ve always dreamed of. Even with all this energy, the Ridgeline can hardly be called a gas-guzzler. With 2WD, the Honda Ridgeline achieves an EPA-rated 19 mpg city and 26 mpg highway*.
Drivetrain Components: Every Ridgeline comes equipped with a 6-Speed Automatic Transmission, a 24-Valve SOHC i-VTEC, Variable Cylinder Management (VCM), an Active Control Engine Mount System (ACM), Active Noise Cancellation, Hill Start Assist, and a High-Capacity Radiator with two High Powered Fans. A Heavy Duty Transmission Cooler comes standard on the RTL-E and Black Edition trims.
Ridgeline Wheels and Ground Clearance: Although the Ridgeline’s exterior styling differs depending on which trim level you select, each has been equipped with 18-Inch Alloy wheels and All-Season Tires. The 2WD and AWD models offer 7.28 and 7.87 inches of ground clearance, respectively.
Intelligent Variable Torque Management: Most AWD systems counteract low traction immediately after the driver begins to experience slippage, but with Intelligent Variable Torque Management (i-VTM4) All-Wheel Drive, the Ridgeline will go to work before you ever notice trouble. I-VTM4 also improves the Ridgeline’s Intelligent Traction Management, so it functions in the sand and the mud as well as in the snow. I-VTM4 is available as an upgrade on the Sport, RTL, and RTL-T trim levels. It’s a standard feature on the RTL-E and Black Edition models.
