In 2017 the Honda Ridgeline was awarded the prestigious title of North American Truck of the Year and was also the first and only pickup to earn a Top Safety Pick+ rating from the IIHS.* This year, the 2018 Honda Ridgeline is back, better than ever, and determined to be even better regarded than its predecessor. Keep reading to learn a little about the new Honda pickup and what you can expect to get from it.
The Midsize Pickup for You
The great thing about the 2018 Honda Ridgeline is that though it has the power and potential of a midsize truck, it still provides all of the luxuries found in many other Honda models—something that is not often found in trucks. Some of the high-tech features that drivers are introduced to when they step into the Ridgeline include Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation, and an 8-inch Display Audio touchscreen. These features allow drivers to enjoy the best of both worlds with ease. On the power front, we’re happy to report that the 2018 Honda Ridgeline has plenty of it. Equipped with a 3.5L V6 engine, the Ridgeline is prepared to provide up to 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque while still remaining incredibly fuel efficient with an EPA-estimated 19 mpg city and 26 mpg highway for two-wheel drive models.** This feisty engine is also equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission, optional all-wheel drive, and variable cylinder management to ensure a smooth, controlled, and enjoyable driving experience. Another important detail you may notice with the new 2018 model is that trim levels have been cut down from 12 to nine. This was done in an effort to provide more focus on the remaining models and give drivers the best utility and performance possible. However, the loss of three trim levels comes with the addition of two new exterior color options for the Sport trim—White Diamond Pearl and Lunar Silver Metallic.
