The 2019 Honda Ridgeline Offers a Sophisticated Alternative to Traditional Midsize Pickups
The 2019 Honda Ridgeline offers a long list of features and improvements to deliver an impressive combination of cargo- and people-hauling capability in the midsize pickup category. The Ridgeline offers unsurpassed an extensive range of comfort and convenience features, along with the most spacious and versatile interior and highest available payload capacity in its class.
Unique in its category, the Ridgeline is constructed with a rigid unitized body, which delivers up to three times the torsional strength of competing body-on-frame trucks. With its unibody construction the Ridgeline is able to accommodate fully independent front and rear suspension systems. But in no-ways means it’s less rugged. The Ridgelines capabilities include a class-leading maximum of 1,584-pound payload capacity and up to a 5,000-pound tow rating. All models also come standard with a Class III towing hitch and AWD models add a seven-pin wiring connector.
The 2019 Ridgeline provides the choices of two-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive options. All-wheel-drive models utilize Honda's most advanced AWD technology – Intelligent Variable Torque Management (i-VTM4), which provides enhanced all-weather performance and handling. All Ridgeline’s incorporate a button-operated Intelligent Traction Management System that enables up to four different operating modes: Normal, Snow, Mud and Sand for the AWD models, as well as Normal and Snow for 2WD vehicles.
The 2019 Honda Ridgeline is powered by a 280 horsepower, 3.5 L all-aluminum direct-injected i-VTEC V6 engine with Variable Cylinder Management (VCM), which is fuel-saving technology that automatically deactivates several of the cylinders, based on driving conditions and operational needs. The advanced engine is mated to a wide ratio six-speed automatic transmission.
The 2019 Ridgeline offers a sleek, sophisticated and rugged exterior design, incorporating premium features including standard LED taillights and available features such as LED projector headlights and LED daytime running lights.
The premium quality of the new Ridgeline carries over to the interior, where designers have applied high quality, soft-touch materials throughout the cabin. The 2019 Ridgeline's high-quality cabin also offers an array of standard and available features and technologies, including an eight-inch Display Audio touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, next generation of Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System, three-zone automatic climate control, an eight-way power driver's seat with adjustable lumbar support, and ambient interior lighting.
The Ridgeline's 60/40-split and folding rear seat offers comfortable seating for up to three passengers and, with the seat bottoms folded, has the ability to carry bulky items in the interior like a 55-inch flat screen television or a mountain bike with the wheels attached. Exclusive in its class, the Ridgeline's large under-seat storage area can carry long items, such as golf clubs, with the rear seats folded down.
Honda refers the Ridgeline as the ultimate tailgate vehicle for sporting events, picnics, and other gatherings and it’s easy to see why. Equipped with industry-first and exclusive features like a Dual Action Tailgate that provides easy access to the lockable and weather-sealed In-Bed Trunk, an available in-bed 115V AC power outlet, and a world's first Truck Bed Audio System.
Ridgeline also continues to offer the comprehensive Honda Sensing suite of advanced safety and driver assistive features, including Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) with Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) with Lane Departure Warning (LDW), and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC).
But the description above barely captures everything the 2019 Ridgeline has to offer, like Push-Button Start, Remote Engine Start, Smart Entry, a power sliding rear window, available heated front seats and a heated steering wheel.
