2018 Honda Ridgeline Hits Dealers Today

Honda's New Ridgeline Remains Mostly Unchanged for 2018

Honda’s 2018 Ridgeline pickup is arriving in dealers today, and is mostly unchanged from the 2017 Ridgeline. The truck is powered by the same direct-injected 3.5L V6, which scrambles together a very capable 280 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque. That V-6 is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission, and the drivetrain features Honda’s Variable Cylinder Management for better fuel economy.
The Ridgeline’s maximum tow and payload ratings are 5,000 pounds and 1,584 pounds, respectively, and the truck’s Intelligent Traction Management System enables different operating modes for a range of scenarios. The AWD model is capable of Normal, Snow, Mud, and Sand modes while the 2WD level is offered with Normal and Snow mode.

Honda’s trick tailgate, which comes standard on the Ridgeline, swings both outward and down. A feature that debuted on the first iteration of the Ridgeline, it is an industry exclusive and adds to the truck’s versatility.
What’s new for 2018? For one, three trim levels have been cut to streamline the buying experience for Honda’s customer. The new model comes with two additional exterior color choices for the Sport trim, with White Diamond Pearl and Lunar Silver Metallic joining Crystal Black Pearl. Other new options for 2018 include Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration with an 8-inch touchscreen, which includes all of your 2018 tech needs like HD Radio, SiriusXM 2.0, up to four USB ports, and Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System.
Honda’s refined 2018 Ridgeline earned a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's New Car Assessment Program.
The Ridgeline keeps its safety features from last year’s model, like its Collision Mitigation Braking System with Forward Collision Warning, Lane Keeping Assist System, Road Departure Mitigation with Lane Departure Warning, and Adaptive Cruise Control.
