2018 Honda Ridgeline Performance

Only one pickup truck has what it takes to satisfy New England drivers, and if you’re on the hunt for a new vehicle, you’ll want to take a closer look at the 2018 Honda Ridgeline. Plenty of folks already know that the Ridgeline offers many technology features that aren’t available in other pickups. However, for most of the drivers in this segment, these advantages alone aren’t enough to make the Ridgeline the obvious choice! Luckily for these skeptics, the Ridgeline’s power and performance specifications exceed those of other many other pickups on the market, and like all of Honda’s vehicles with available all-wheel drive, the Ridgeline provides outstanding fuel economy. According to the writers at Car and Driver, the Ridgeline’s “superb ride and handling” make it one of the most attractive options in its segment! We’re sure that you’ll agree once you’ve had the chance to take it for a test drive.

Drivetrain Specifications

All of the 2018 Ridgeline’s available trim levels come equipped with a finely tuned 3.5L V6 engine, 24-valve SOHC i-VTEC valvetrain, and a 6-speed automatic transmission. Standard drivetrain features like direct fuel injection, a drive-by-wire throttle system, variable cylinder management, and an active control engine mount system make the Ridgeline a dependable performance powerhouse. No matter what conditions you’re facing, you can count on the Ridgeline to offer 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. All but the baseline Ridgeline RT trim come standard with remote engine start technology, and can be outfitted with Intelligent Variable Torque Management (i-VTM4) AWD. What’s more, on the high-end RTL-E and Black Edition trims, all-wheel drive has been included as a standard feature! Absent this technology, the Ridgeline offers intelligent traction management in snowy conditions. With I-VTM4 equipped, the Ridgeline’s intelligent traction management feature works in the sand and the mud, as well. All Ridgeline drivers will also enjoy the handling benefits provided by vehicle stability assist with traction control, a standard active safety feature. VSA automatically adjusts the rotation speed of each of your wheels to keep you in control when you’re moving on difficult terrain.

Maximum Payload and Towing Capacity in the Ridgeline

New England’s pickup drivers need trucks that are prepared to meet any challenge, and naturally, the Ridgeline’s superior drivetrain performance allows it to handle even the heaviest, bulkiest equipment. Its cargo bed—which offers up to 33.9 cubic feet of storage space—can handle a total payload of up to 1,465 pounds without any upgrades. What’s more, every Ridgeline comes equipped with a dual-action tailgate that makes loading and unloading cargo significantly easier. The 2018 Ridgeline can tow up to 3,500 pounds in 2WD, and when you activate all-wheel drive, this capacity jumps all the way to 5,000 pounds. What’s more, the Ridgeline offers dozens of available accessories. Options like roof rails, a bed extender, and in-bed trunk dividers allow the Ridgeline to offer even greater utility. No matter where your next job takes you, you can count on the Ridgeline to keep you moving forward.

Ridgeline Fuel Economy

Most of the vehicles in the pickup segment will bleed you dry when you go to fill up your gas tank, but because the 2018 Ridgeline is a Honda, it’s guaranteed to save you money at the pump! As mentioned above, every Ridgeline comes equipped with a 6-speed automatic transmission, although your fuel economy will differ slightly depending on whether you’re operating with or without all-wheel drive. Thanks in part to the Ridgeline’s standard EcoAssist system, 2WD models get an EPA-estimated 19 mpg city, 26 mpg highway, and 22 mpg combined,* while AWD models offer an EPA-estimated 18 mpg city, 25 mpg highway, and 21 mpg combined.*
