Completely redesigned in 2017, the Honda Ridgeline received a handful of industry accolades, including the coveted North American Truck of the Year Award. In its sophomore year, the 2018 Ridgeline kicks that award-winning demeanor into overdrive. If you’re in the market for a headlining compact or midsize truck to lead you to stardom, you’ll find it in the new Ridgeline, which is available for sale and lease today at our Phoenix Valley Honda Dealers locations.
What’s New for 2018
Following its record-setting overhaul last year, the latest Ridgeline doesn’t break from tradition, offering the same superb features and styling as its predecessor. The most notable changes include new exterior colors, a negligible price bump, and just six trims (sayonara, RTS model). If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
An Interior to Love
Roomy enough for five passengers, clever enough to store a few sets of golf clubs, and driven by some supreme technology, the 2018 Ridgeline’s cabin is arguably the best of the pack. It certainly made an impression on critics, who poked the Ridgeline into a top rank in the U.S. News Compact Pickup Trucks category. Drivers who test the Ridgeline at our Phoenix Honda dealerships concur, noting that the well-designed interior is too good to pass up.
Among the numerous fan-favorite features include an intuitive infotainment system, heated leather seats, and an optional 8-inch touchscreen.
An Exterior to Abuse
Every Ridgeline trim is powered by a punchy V6 that performs adequately, making a full-bodied 280hp. Tow up to 5,000 pounds with ease—that’s more than enough to haul around a duo of ATVs—or load up more than 1,500 pounds for a construction job.
All that power results in a smooth-as-silk ride, too, as even the stingiest roads are absorbed by the struts and suspension. The Intelligent Traction Management system allows you to choose drive modes at will, transforming uneven pavement and desert-squeezed hills into your playground.
Unique bed features transform the Ridgeline into the living legend that it’s become. Like its 2017 model, the 2018 Ridgeline’s wide and durable bed comes complete with an innovative dual-hinge tailgate and in-bed trunk that doubles as a tailgating cooler. The available bed outlet keeps all your tools and electronics plugged in and ready to go. Pump the dubstep beats out from the industry-first truck bed audio system and annoy your neighbors. All of life’s little pleasures are waiting for you in the Ridgeline’s bed.
