Utility Features of the 2019 Honda Ridgeline

Reviews of Honda’s unmistakable mid-size pickup often tout its high-end technology and safety features, as well as its willingness to stand out from the crowd. Nevertheless, the 2019 Honda Ridgeline’s payload, cargo space, tow rating, and available All-Wheel Drive prove that at the end of the day, it can beat more conventional pickups at their own game. The Ridgeline was named the Best Mid-Size Pickup in Car and Driver’s 10 Best Trucks and SUVs competition in both 2017 and 2018, and this year’s model is sure to be just as dominant. Take a look at these specs on the 2019 Honda Ridgeline:

When you drive the 2019 Honda Ridgeline, you’ll never have to stress about having the right tool for the job! It’s easy to load heavy cargo into this spacious and accessible pickup truck’s bed, and even without upgrades, the Ridgeline is powerful enough to tow most heavy equipment.

Ridgeline Tow Rating: Every Ridgeline comes standard with an Integrated Class III Trailer Hitch, so you’ll be ready to tow as soon as you drive this pickup off the lot!

Exterior Accessories: Customizing your Ridgeline with accessories is an easy way to maximize this vehicle’s utility.

Ridgeline Payload: Even the Ridgeline’s baseline RT trim level can accommodate up to 1465 lbs. of cargo in its truck bed. Those who upgrade with the Sport trim and with Intelligent Variable Torque Management AWD will be able to handle 1580 lbs. Your maximum available payload will decrease slightly in the heavier RTL, RTL-T, RTL-E, and Black Edition trims, but what you lose in maximum capacity you’ll more than gain in convenience and utility features.

Ridgeline Cargo Space and Bed Features: Drivers will be able to stow up to 33.9 cu. ft. of cargo in the open-air portion of the Ridgeline’s truck bed, and that’s not all that sets this pickup apart. You’ll also receive a lockable In-Bed Trunk that can store 7.3 cu. ft. of cargo, and light loads can be secured with grocery bag hooks. A standard Dual-Action Tailgate can open by laying flat or by swinging outward, making it significantly easier to load up heavy cargo.

Get More Done with the Honda Ridgeline’s AWD

If you’re looking for a vehicle with satisfying performance, you’ll find plenty to get excited about in Honda’s utility-driven AWD lineup. In these vehicles—and especially in the Ridgeline—Honda’s engineers have combined powerful engines with adanced drivetrain components and clever design features that will help you tackle the toughest jobs.

  • Power and Performance: The Ridgeline’s 3.5-Liter V6 engine can generate up to 280 hp at 6000 RPM and 262 lb.-ft. of torque at 4700 RPM. What’s more, thanks to the inclusion of Direct Fuel Injection, Variable Cylinder Management (VCM), an EcoAssist System, and an Active Control Engine Mount System (ACM), the Ridgeline provides a more satisfying (and fuel efficient) touring experience. A six-Speed Automatic Transmission and a High Capacity Radiator are standard on every trim.

  • Intelligent Variable Torque Management AWD: Every Ridgeline trim except for the baseline RT can be equipped with dependable, high-performance AWD. Most AWD systems respond to dangerous road conditions after they begin to affect your handling. With Intelligent Variable Torque Management (i-VTM4) All-Wheel Drive, your Ridgeline will redirect power to the wheels with the most traction in order to avoid slippage altogether!

  • Off-Road Capability: The Ridgeline doesn’t have any trouble moving across rough terrain! Unibody construction, MacPherson Strut Front Suspension, Multi-Link Rear Suspension, 18-Inch Alloy Wheels, and All-Season Tires come standard on every model, and this pickup’s Intelligent Traction Management can function in the snow, the sand, and the mud with i-VTM4. The Honda Ridgeline’s Ground Clearance ranges from 7.28 inches to 7.87 inches depending on whether or not you opt for the AWD upgrade.
