Engine and Transmission

The Ridgeline is powered by a dynamic 3.5L V6 engine. It produces up to 280 horsepower and 262 lb.-ft of torque to accelerate quickly in a merging or passing situation. The engine works in tandem with a 6-speed automatic transmission that delivers the power generated under the hood to the front wheels, or to all four wheel with available AWD.

The reviewers at Edmunds note that the Ridgeline offers “class-leading ride comfort,” thanks to a unique Unibody Construction. This type of construction creates a more rigid structure than other pickups and produces a smoother ride. Other suspension features include:

  • MacPherson Strut Front Suspension
  • Multi-Link Rear Suspension
  • Electric Power-Assisted Rack-and-Pinion Steering
  • Stabilizer Bar (front and rear)


The Ridgeline comes standard with a 2WD system. For drivers who prefer AWD, the Ridgeline offers an Intelligent Variable Torque Management AWD System available on the Sport, RTL, and RTL-T models. The top-tier RTL-E and Black Edition models have the AWD system as the standard.

Active Safety Features that Boost Performance

The Ridgeline has a long list of safety features throughout the trim levels, including driver-assistive technology systems that help drivers stay safe. It also includes standard active safety features that enhance the Ridgeline’s performance despite challenging weather conditions.

  • Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control – This system corrects oversteering or understeering during cornering to provide better stability on the road. It also ensures the Ridgeline maintains good tractive control, even on slippery or loose road surfaces.
  • Anti-Lock Braking System – This system prevent the brakes from locking up, which can cause dangerous skidding on the road.
  • Electronic Brake Distribution – With this system, the Ridgeline varies the braking pressure applied to each wheel based on speed, driver inputs, and road conditions.
  • Brake Assist – This system helps bring the Ridgeline to a complete stop more quickly and safely in an emergency braking situation.
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System – This system helps monitor the pressure in each wheel and issues a warning when one or more tires needs to be inflated.
  • Daytime Running Lights – Ensures that the Ridgeline is clearly visible to other drivers while illuminating the road ahead.
