Supreme Entertainment

If you’re looking for a truck that serves up outstanding entertainment features, the Honda Ridgeline is definitely the pickup for you.

The Ridgeline brings to the driving world an array of industry-exclusive features. Among them is the world’s very first truck-bed audio system, which comes standard onboard the Ridgeline RTL-E and Black Edition trims. This pioneering feature delivers 540 watts of power along with six exciters that are integrated into the bed wall, and this innovative audio system can be controlled via Bluetooth on your smartphone or device. Whether you’re fishing at your favorite spot, tossing around a football at the park, or hanging out with your buddies at a tailgate party, the Honda Ridgeline’s truck-bed audio system lets you bring the fun wherever you go!

On the inside, the Ridgeline features three sound system choices, with a seven-speaker, 200-watt AM/FM audio system with subwoofer coming standard; an available seven-speaker sound system with 225 watts of power and a subwoofer; and an available eight-speaker, 540-watt Premium Audio sound system with subwoofer. Song by Voice is an available feature, as are Pandora capability, HD Radio, and SiriusXM radio. Speed-sensitive volume control, Bluetooth Audio, and MP3/Windows Media Audio capability come standard.

Honda Ridgeline

An 8-inch Display Audio touchscreen also comes standard in the RTL-T, RTL-E, and Black Edition models, featuring an electrostatic touchscreen and customizable feature settings. Users can touch, pinch, and swipe as they browse through their favorite music, talk shows, podcasts, and more.

Cutting-Edge Conveniences

The Ridgeline is also chock-full of features that make the driving experience much more convenient for drivers and passengers alike.


Ridgeline Navigation

A Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System with Voice Command and Honda HD Digital Traffic comes standard onboard the RTL-T, RTL-E, and Black Edition models, making it much easier to find destinations when you’re at the helm of the Ridgeline. This system features incredible graphics that include 3D renderings of terrain and buildings. Lane guidance is also included, with a split screen for road signs and exits, and a predictive local search function is offered, as well.

Ridgeline Display

A standard multi-information display features a 4.2-inch color LCD screen and delivers key data to the driver, such as average fuel economy, indicators when a door or the tailgate is open, an engine oil-life indicator, tire pressure information, exterior temperature readings, and lots more.

Ridgeline Bluetooth

Bluetooth HandsFreeLink comes standard in every Ridgeline model, giving drivers safe, hands-free access to their phone functions.

Ridgeline Android Auto

Available Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto enable drivers to sync up a smartphone to the Ridgeline’s Display Audio touchscreen. Make calls, send messages, browse through your music, access apps, and much more—right on the truck’s built-in display!

Ridgeline Hondalink

A HomeLink remote system comes standard in all but the base model, allowing drivers to program the Ridgeline to control remote-operated devices around their homes, such as the garage door, security systems, and lighting systems.

Ridgeline Entry

The Ridgeline also features a standard Smart Entry system in all but the base model. As long as the truck’s key fob is within range, drivers can unlock and enter the vehicle without having to take out the key. Walk-away auto lock is further offered for the top three Ridgeline trims and is able to automatically lock the vehicle as the driver walks away.

State-of-the-art Safety

The Ridgeline’s technological advancements also extend to the realm of safety. Various safety and driver-assist features enable Ridgeline drivers to breathe a little easier behind the wheel, no matter where they’re headed.

  • A multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines comes standard for each Ridgeline model, giving drivers a clear view of what is behind them as they operate in reverse. When you’re driving a high-profile vehicle like a truck, the things you can’t see can lead to tragedy—but this important feature helps prevent unfortunate accidents as you’re backing up the Ridgeline.
  • A Collision Mitigation Braking System comes standard onboard the Ridgeline RTL-E and Black Edition models and is designed to help drivers avoid frontal collisions. When an unavoidable accident is detected, this system can automatically apply braking force to help reduce the impact of a crash or even prevent the accident altogether.
  • Available Forward Collision Warning works in concert with the CMBS, warning drivers when a potential accident is ahead so the driver has time to take evasive action.
  • Honda LaneWatch is standard on the Ridgeline RTL-T model. This system uses a camera that is integrated into the passenger-side exterior mirror to deliver live images of whatever is in the adjacent lane. This feature helps drivers change lanes and make right-hand turns much more safely and avoid many potential accidents.
  • The Ridgeline’s available Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Monitor further helps drivers avoid potential collisions by alerting the motorist when vehicles are approaching or are in the truck’s blind spot. Drivers can, therefore, change lanes with much greater confidence than ever before.
  • Available Adaptive Cruise Control lets drivers operate in cruise mode even when there is traffic on the road. This system allows the driver to input a desired speed and following interval, and it then goes to work automatically maintaining a safe distance between the Ridgeline and other vehicles ahead of it. This vehicle can even brake when it senses traffic slowing down or stopping in the road ahead.
