Experience the Real-World Performance of Honda Ridgeline Specs.

As noted by The Car Connection, the Honda Ridgeline offers “a level of comfort and refinement that traditional pickups can’t match”. All it takes is a look at 2019 Honda Ridgeline specs and performance features to understand that its drive is a cut above what you might expect.

We encourage any interested driver to visit their nearest Honda showroom for a test drive. Before you make that trip, read on to explore:

  • Honda Ridgeline Horsepower and Torque
  • Honda Ridgeline MPG
  • Honda Ridgeline Towing Capacity
  • Honda Ridgeline Payload


Most trucks make you accept a subpar engine as standard, with high-end powerplants being reserved for high-priced trims. The Honda Ridgeline doesn’t play that way. Instead, each model features a 3.5L V6 engine with:

  • 280 HP
  • 262 lb-ft of Torque
  • Direct Fuel Injection

An Active Control Engine Mount System (ACM) and Active Noise Cancellation™ (ANC) system work together to ensure engine noise is kept to a minimum even when you’re revving hard across the backcountry or passing less powerful models on the highway.

2019 Honda Ridgeline Engine and Transmission


Your Honda Ridgeline’s V6 engine comes paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission (6AT) that works tirelessly to provide an ideal blend of power and efficiency.

Further efficiency features include:

  • Variable Cylinder Management™ (VCM®): Your engine will run on fewer cylinders during steady cruising to reduce fuel consumption.
  • Eco Assist™ System: The Eco Assist™ System provides feedback to show how your driving style is impacting efficiency. Over time, you’ll coach yourself into a more efficient style.

Overall, you can expect to make:

  • Up to an EPA estimated 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway with 2WD.*
  • Up to and EPA estimated 18 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway with AWD*.

Given the horsepower and torque commanded by the 2019 Honda Ridgeline, you’ll enjoy unsurprisingly strong towing and payload figures:

  • Maximum Towing: Up to 3,500 lbs. in 2WD or 5,000 lbs. in AWD.
  • Maximum Payload: Up to 1,465 lbs. in 2WD or 1,580 lbs. in AWD

That sort of power can haul anything from trailers to speedboats to decent-sized campers, so the Honda Ridgeline is ready to go whether you need to help a friend move apartments or venture out into the great outdoors.

If you will be heading off-road, put the following features on your side:

  • Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ (i-VTM4™) AWD System: Available with all models but the RT and standard with the RTL-E and Black Edition, Honda’s AWD system provides flawless traction through adverse weather and across uneven terrain.
  • Intelligent Traction Management: Comes with a Snow mode as standard or Snow, Sand, and Mud with AWD models.

Performance Features

The Honda Ridgeline separates itself from most pickup trucks by using a unit-body frame instead of a body-on-frame design. This means the whole structure is completely welded and/or bonded together to create an extremely rigid structure – performance benefits include reduced vibrations and superior driving characteristics.

Further performance features include:

  • MacPherson Strut Front & Multi-Link Rear Suspension: Sophisticated suspension systems handle every bump in the road and maintain balance even when you’re carrying heavier loads.
  • Electric Power-Assisted Rack-and-Pinion Steering (EPS): Electric power-assisted steering improves control and feedback for faultless handling.
  • Front and Available Rear Stabilizer Bars: Helps reduce body roll through corners or over bumpers.
  • Power-Assisted Ventilated Front Disc/Solid Rear Disc Brakes: Added power during braking provides superior stopping power.
  • All-Season Tires: Maintain a perfect grip on the road below regardless of the time of year.

The Honda Ridgeline also boasts a wide selection of active safety features as standard to keep you from harm and sharpen performance.

Features include:

  • Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control
  • Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)
  • Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD)
  • Brake Assist
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) with Tire Fill Assist and Location and Pressure Indicators
