2018 Honda Ridgeline: Six-Cylinders of Power

2018 Honda Ridgeline Offroad

The 2018 Honda Ridgeline has already received praise for its innovative cargo solutions and class-exclusive in-bed audio system. On top of that, the Ridgeline’s performance is up to whatever task you throw at it. Whether you’re towing heavy loads in Frankfort, or tackling snowy conditions in Orland Park, the Ridgeline is ready for anything. Find out more in this guide from Community Honda.

Engine Advantages

Honda engineers have worked hard to craft an engine to meet the demands of truck enthusiasts. Let’s explore the highlights of the Ridgeline’s powertrain:

  • At the heart of every Ridgeline model is a full-blooded 3.5L V6 engine. It puts out 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque.
  • You can pair this engine with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive depending on your needs. However, if you want better traction during slippery conditions, we recommend choosing all-wheel drive.
  • You might expect a vehicle with this kind of power to offer subpar fuel economy, but the Ridgeline isn’t an ordinary truck. It offers up to 19 mpg city/26 mpg highway* with front-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission.

This high level of power and efficiency means the Ridgeline is right at home on city streets or the jobsite.

Ridgeline Capability

If you’re ready to put your next pickup to work, you’ll want it to supply high capability numbers. Let’s see how the front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive models in the Sport trim sack up:

  • Gross Vehicle Weight Rating: 5,710 lbs FWD/6,019 lbs AWD
  • Maximum Payload Capacity: 1,465 lbs FWD/1,580 lbs AWD
  • Towing Capacity: 3,500 lbs FWD/5,000 lbs AWD

As you can see, both models deliver competitive figures.
