2018 Honda Ridgeline Research
When you’re shopping for a new truck, stick with the one that’s always up for the challenge. The 2018 Honda Ridgeline, available now at Patty Peck Honda serving Jackson, Flowood, and Madison County MS, stands tall among its competitors by boasting a hefty towing capacity, brawny engine, and six trims to ensure your needs are met. Whether you choose the Sport, RTL, RTL-T, RTL-E, or the bold Black Edition trim, an AWD drivetrain is available to you. On the base RT model, you do not have this choice, but this truck still has plenty of pep and traction features to get you where you need to go with confidence.
Check out what the critics have had to say about the 2018 Ridgeline:
- “Transcending pickup-truck tropes, the Ridgeline tosses tradition to the wind with unconventional comfort and ingenious features.” – Car and Driver
- “Here’s all you really need to know: the 2018 Honda Ridgeline is the most well-rounded midsize truck on the market today.” – Edmunds
Powertrain and Technology
The 2018 Ridgeline is the latest incarnation of this truck’s second generation, powered by a dependable 3.5L direct-injected V-6 engine that turns out 280 horsepower. Four-wheel independent suspension crafts a comfortable ride, while the available intelligent AWD system makes it a breeze for you to face down the toughest of drives. Working in tandem with Intelligent Traction Management, drivers can then select the driving conditions they’re dealing with (normal, snow, mud, or sand) and your Ridgeline will do the hard part: making sure you have just the right amount of grip to successfully navigate the challenges ahead.
2018 Ridgeline AWD models come equipped with an integrated tow hitch, so that 5,000 pound towing capacity is easily accessible when you need it the most. 2WD Rideline drivers can expect to be able to tow up to 3,500 pounds. Whichever model you choose, you can expect a range of convenient features designed to set up a powerful and hassle-free drive, such as:
- Unit-body construction sheds weight to optimize efficiency
- 262 lb-ft torque
- Eco Assist System
- 100K miles with no scheduled tune-ups
- Six-speed automatic transmission
Safety and Versatility
“Work smarter, not harder” is the key phrase to keep in mind when considering the 2018 Ridgeline for all your needs. Inside and out, this truck is designed to make quick work of your recreational needs. For example, take a look at the interior: the four-door cabin can fit five passengers, with plenty of legroom to offer maximum comfort. For when you’re not carting around the whole crew, the 60/40 Split Lift-Up Rear Seats turn the spacious backseat into one more place ideally suited for storage.
The bed of the 2018 Ridgeline is a standout feature in that it’s so much more than that of its counterparts. Options include a 150W/400W Truck-Bed Outlet, a lockable in-bed trunk that features 7.3 cubic feet of cargo space and a drain plug for easy cleanup, and a Truck Bed Audio System so that your outdoor duties never have to be boring. Let this vehicle be a power source, an entertainment source, and an ingenious way to store your gear so that no task is too cumbersome to tackle!
Honda’s chief concern, however, is your safety, and that’s obvious in the 2018 Ridgeline. It starts with its unit-body construction, crafted using ACE™ Body Structure for smart handling in the event of a collision. A comprehensive airbag suite has you surrounded on all sides, but where this truck really shines is with its host of available safety tech. Honda Sensing technology includes Collision Mitigation Braking System, Road Departure Mitigation System, and the multi-angle rearview camera designed to make navigating tough spots a breeze.
