America loves pickup trucks, and many Americans purchase one every year. While some drivers want robust hauling and towing capabilities, many just want a pickup that can handle reasonable loads, reliably and safely transport passengers and take advantage of the latest technologies. If you are a potential pickup truck drivers looking for capability, smart technology and comfort, consider the 2018 Honda Ridgeline.
The 2018 Honda Ridgeline is a versatile and capable vehicle that far outperforms other mid-size trucks. It comes equipped with a standard 3.5-liter V6 engine that delivers 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. Despite this powerful performance, you’ll have a comfortably quiet drive due to the Ridgeline’s active noise cancellation technology, so you can listen to your favorite music and news broadcasts without pesky background driving noise.
The Ridgeline feels more akin to a comfortable SUV – like the Honda Pilot, for instance. It accelerates and turns easily, with rear independent suspension that provides a smooth ride. If you stick with the standard front-wheel drive, you can tow up to 3,500 pounds. Alternatively, if you opt for a model with all-wheel drive, you can tow up to 5,000 pounds. With Honda’s Intelligent Traction Management System, the Ridgeline comfortably traverses any terrain.
The 2018 Ridgeline features attractive interior comfort and tech along with an available suite of active safety technology. It offers an advanced infotainment system with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility for your smartphone, as well as comfortable climate control and available heated seats. The Ridgeline’s smart tech extends to its available Honda Sensing® safety system, which offers desirable features such as the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ and Adaptive Cruise Control. With all its capability, comfort and safety, we at Love Honda think the 2018 Ridgeline is a fantastic choice for drivers young and old.
