If you’re looking for a new pickup truck, Honda should be the brand that immediately springs to mind. That’s because the Honda Ridgeline has been one of the most well-received new 2019 Honda models this year for a number of different reasons.
For a compact pickup, the Honda Ridgeline has a big and powerful engine. With its 3.5-liter V6, you will get 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. While front-wheel drive is standard, all-wheel drive is available. Whichever you choose, you will enjoy very smooth handling that will make it feel as though you’re behind the wheel of a sedan like the Honda Accord instead of a powerful truck.
Inside its crew cab body style, the interior of the 2019 Honda Ridgeline is spacious and there’s plenty of room for five adults. Cloth upholstery is standard but leather is available, as are power-adjustable and heated front seats. The 5-foot, 4-inch bed is made of reinforced composite material, which means that it doesn’t need a liner. And any 4-foot wide items you need to haul should have no problem fitting between the wheel wells. There is also a storage trunk in the bed with a built-in drain plug. An in-bed AC power outlet and sound system are available. The Honda Ridgeline has a versatile tailgate. In addition to folding down, it can also swing open to allow for easier loading and unloading.
Standard tech features in this truck include two USB ports, push-button start, Bluetooth®, and a seven-speaker sound system. You can also get quite a few extras, such as satellite radio, Siri Eyes Free®, a moonroof, and Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration.
Like many 2019 Honda cars, the new Honda Ridgeline has received very good safety ratings from both the National Highway Traffic Safety and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Standard features include brake assist, traction control, and a rearview camera. You can also get rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning, and adaptive cruise control.
