Although pickup buyers have a lot of options these days, most offerings are very similar. That is, except for the 2019 Honda Ridgeline – a truck unlike any other on the road. The Ridgeline has exclusive features that make it a capable, versatile and unique machine. There are five utilities in particular that you should know about.
Are you looking for something different? Then you’ll want to check out the 2019 Honda Ridgeline. Unlike most pickups, it’s built on a unit-body that integrates the body panels and chassis. The design is both sturdy and lightweight, allowing for maximum capability, as well as improved fuel mileage. Ride quality is also enhanced, leading to car-like comfort.
Under the hood, the Ridgeline packs a 3.5L V6 engine (280 hp, 262 hp) mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. Buyers get the choice of either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive with Intelligent Traction Management. Towing capacity is 5,000 lbs. (AWD) when properly equipped.*
Available 2019 Honda Ridgeline Configurations include RT, Sport, RTL, RTL-T and RTL-E. There’s also a limited production Black Edition.
But that’s not all. The truck offers several innovative features that improve utility for both work and play.
These are the top-five most useful features:
Regular tailgates only fold downward, which makes loading certain items difficult. The 2019 Honda Ridgeline solves that problem. All models feature a dual action tailgate that can open either downward or outward.
Like many vehicle owners, you’ve probably wished for a household-style outlet in your car. Now, the Ridgeline fulfills those desires with a 115-volt bed-mounted power outlet. The electrical source can run anything from a power tool to a TV.
A truck with a trunk? That’s right – the Ridgeline uses a lockable in-bed storage compartment to harness the utility of both a sedan and pickup. The trunk hides valuables from prying eyes, while also providing extra space for cargo. Plus, there’s a built-in drain, so you can use the compartment to hold damp items, such as an ice chest.
On most trucks, the wheel wells stick out and take up valuable bed space. But the Ridgeline uses a forward-thinking smart bed, which has reduced wheel well housings, to maximize cargo volume. The extra payload space allows you to haul more and work more efficiently.
A killer soundtrack is a requirement wherever you go. That’s why the Honda Ridgeline includes an industry-first truck bed audio system. The available feature uses speakers mounted inside the bed walls to pump out tunes. You can use it to amp up your next tailgate party or help you get through the workday.
