2018 Honda Ridgeline Named Best Midsize Pickup
There’s plenty to get excited about in the 2018 Honda Ridgeline, and we’re not the only ones who think so! The writers at Car and Driver have just released their list of the 10Best Trucks and SUVs of 2018, and this year’s Ridgeline was named as the best midsize pickup available today. Their selection process involves comparing each competitor’s overall value, ride quality, and ability to perform the tasks associated with its segment. The Ridgeline may seem like an unconventional choice, but it’s well rounded enough to hold its own against any rival. It’s the perfect choice for drivers in Mid-Missouri.
What Sets the Ridgeline Apart?
The Ridgeline’s performance and drivability leave little to be desired, but that’s just the beginning. It’s also one of the safest pickup options available, and its six available trim levels offer tons of media and entertainment features.
- Drivetrain and Carrying Capacity: With 280 hp, 262 lb-ft of torque, and a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds (with available all-wheel drive) there’s almost nothing the Ridgeline can’t do. It comes standard with a 3.5L V6 engine, and its truck bed—which offers a total capacity of 33.9 cubic feet—has been designed with a unique dual-action tailgate and a lockable in-bed trunk. Even the Ridgeline’s fuel economy is superior to that of most models in its segment.
- Safety Technologies: Unlike many of its mainstream competitors, the 2018 Honda Ridgeline is available with many of the most advanced safety technologies on the market. Both its RTL-E and Black Edition trims come standard with the Honda Sensing package, which offers a host of advanced driver-assistance features.
- Media and Connectivity: The Ridgeline’s RTL-T trim level sports a Display Audio touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System. Those who upgrade one step further to the Ridgeline’s RTL-E trim will also receive a 540-watt 8-speaker premium audio system and a durable, easy-to-use truck-bed audio system that’s unique to this vehicle.
