Black Honda 2020 Ridgeline with black background

Honda’s Ridgeline was recently named #1 Midsize Truck by Car and Driver magazine. This is largely due to it’s smooth, car-like driving experience that comes courtesy of Honda’s long celebrated VTEC V6 engine and unit-body construction. The Ridgeline’s ingeniously designed truck bed allows for the truck to be shorter and more parkable than other trucks in its class. The bed includes a weather resistant 7 cubic foot “trunk” that can hold valuables that need locking up. A drain plug in that trunk also allows for it to be a gigantic cooler if the situation demands. The truck bed’s tailgate can be lowered in the traditional way or opened like a door as it is hinged on one side.

The Ridgeline comes with many great standard features on the entry level trim including a multi angle rear view camera, intelligent traction management and an integrated class III trailer hitch. As you climb up the range, safety and convenience amenities accrue, including traffic sensing, blind spot information system and a 150 watt / 400 watt ac outlet installed in the truck bed.
