The fully redesigned Honda Ridgeline first hit dealership floors in late 2016, and the market for pickup trucks has never been the same. In almost no time, the 2017 Ridgeline had been named as the 2017 North American Truck of the Year and as a 2017 Top Safety Pick+,* and Metro Milwaukee drivers were taking notice. Many have been on the edge of their seats waiting for the arrival of the 2018 Honda Ridgeline, and now that it’s finally here, it’s sure to make a strong first impression. This year’s Ridgeline offers many of the same capabilities and features as its 2017 build, although its trim lineup has been reduced from 12 models to nine, and its Sport trim level is available in two new colors: Lunar Silver Metallic and Diamond White Pearl. To understand why the writers at Car and Driver have called it “the best midsize pickup that money can buy,” you’ll have to take a closer look!
There’s Nothing the Ridgeline Can’t Do
Under the hood, the 2018 Ridgeline sports a 3.5L SOHC i-VTEC V6 engine with variable cylinder management, and that means it can offer 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque no matter what conditions you’re facing. Intelligent variable torque management (i-VTM4) AWD is no longer available on the Ridgeline RT, but it can be equipped on every other trim option. Features like a dual-action tailgate and an in-bed trunk come standard right from the start, and as you move up through its trims, you’ll gain access to tri-zone automatic climate control (in the Sport), a leather-trimmed interior (in the RTL), a Satellite-Linked Navigation System (in the RTL-T), and much more. High-end models like the RTL-E and the Black Edition will both receive exclusive offerings like a truck-bed audio system, a 540-watt eight-speaker interior stereo system, and the Honda Sensing driver-assist safety package!
