There’s no truck quite like the 2019 Honda Ridgeline! Every powerful Ridgeline pickup comes equipped with tons of dependable, high-tech features, and if last year’s IIHS evaluations are taken as an indication, it’s one of the safest trucks on the road today. The 2017 Ridgeline was also the first pickup to earn the Top Safety Pick+ designation from the IIHS*.
Drivers who choose the 2019 Ridgeline will have the option to upgrade with top-tier intelligent safety features. The celebrated Honda Sensing package comes standard on this pickup’s RTL-E and Black Edition trim levels, and it includes six powerful features that you’ll never tire of using.
Lane Keeping Assist System: Some of the most dangerous collisions are caused by unintentional lane changes. In the Ridgeline, you’ll be able to take advantage of a Lane Departure Warning and a Lane Keeping Assist System that will help you stay centered in your lane of choice.
Road Departure Mitigation: The Ridgeline’s Road Departure Mitigation feature uses a system of cameras to keep track of the road’s edge! As with the Lane Keeping Assist System, Road Departure Mitigation will gently guide you back toward the center of your lane if it determines that you’re in danger of going off course.
Collision Mitigation Braking: The Ridgeline’s Forward Collision Warning beeps to alert the driver whenever it detects the possibility of a frontal collision. If this warning isn’t sufficient to slow you in time, the Collision Mitigation Braking System will take control, slowing you down automatically.
Adaptive Cruise Control: Ridgeline drivers can make their commutes a lot more enjoyable by activating Adaptive Cruise Control, which uses your front facing cameras and radar in order to keep you moving with the flow of traffic. When you set your preferred follow distance, the Ridgeline will automatically adjust its speed without requiring you to exit cruise control.
Honda Sensing safety features aren’t the only technologies that set the Ridgeline apart from its competitors. Upgraded models sport visibility-enhancing components like Automatic High-Beam Headlights and a Blind Spot Information System. All trim levels come standard with a Blind Spot Information System and Vehicle Stability Assist.
Auto High-Beam Headlights: High-Beam headlights give you more time to respond to surprises you encounter on the road, but if they’re flashing in the eyes of other drivers, they can cause danger, too! These automatic high-beams detect oncoming traffic and adjust their brightness accordingly. They complement the Ridgeline’s Daytime Running Headlights, which come standard on every model.
Blind Spot Information System: Keeping track of the other vehicles in your periphery when you upgrade to the Ridgeline’s RTL-E trim level. Its Blind Spot Information System uses audio-visual alerts to let you know when another vehicle enters this normally hard-to-see area. This system replaces the RTL-T’s Honda LaneWatch feature.
Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control: Every Ridgeline comes equipped with Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control, features that will help you stay in control when you’re making a sharp turn or going around a curve. Moreover, the Intelligent Variable Torque Management All-Wheel Drive system is available on every trim level other than the baseline RT.
The Ridgeline’s technology features make dangerous collisions far less likely, but at the end of the day, there’s no substitute for a solid foundation. The Ridgeline’s passive safety features provide superior all-around protection for every passenger seated in your cabin—and they’re standard in every trim.
Unit-Body Construction: Even the Ridgeline’s frame is unique in the world of pickup trucks. Unlike most of its competitors, the Ridgeline utilizes Unit-Body Construction and Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure in order to provide a safer, more secure touring experience. A clever combination of collapsible and ultra-rigid frame materials makes the Ridgeline’s cabin much safer in the event of a collision.
Seatbelts and Child Safety: Three-point seatbelts have been equipped for all five of the Ridgeline’s seating positions, and those in the first row also offer automatic tensioning and reminders. Additionally, every Ridgeline comes equipped with Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) and child-proof rear door locks.
All-Around Airbag Protection: With Advanced Front Airbags, SmartVent Front Side Airbags, and Side Curtain Airbags with a Rollover Sensor, you’ll feel more secure wherever life takes you.
