Under the Hood

As with all the vehicles in Honda’s All-Wheel Drive lineup, the foundation of the Ridgeline’s utility is its dependable, powerful, and efficient drivetrain. No matter where your life takes you, you’ll drive with the confidence that only a 3.5-Liter V-6 engine can provide, and your capabilities will grow if you upgrade with Intelligent Variable Torque Management AWD.

  • Powertrain: The engineers and designers at Honda have equipped every Ridgeline trim with a 3.5-Liter V-6 engine, a 6-Speed Automatic Transmission, a 24-Valve SOHC i-VTEC valvetrain, and a High-Capacity Radiator with two High-Power Fans. When these features work together, you’ll be able to push your limits with 280 hp and 262 lb.-ft. of torque. A vibration-reducing Active Control Engine Mount System comes standard.
  • Intelligent Variable Torque Management AWD: Every Ridgeline comes standard with snow-ready Intelligent Traction Management, and when you upgrade to the Sport trim or above, you’ll also be able to access Intelligent Variable Torque Management (i-VTM4) AWD. This option allows the Ridgeline to mitigate slippage before you begin to lose traction, and it retools your Intelligent Traction Management to function in the sand and the mud.
  • Chassis and Ground Clearance: The Ridgeline features Unibody construction, an ultra-rigid, completely welded all-steel design that makes this pickup exceptionally stable. MacPherson Strut Front Suspension and Multi-Link Rear Suspension. When you’re driving the Ridgeline, you’ll enjoy either 7.28 inches (2WD) or 7.87 inches (AWD) of ground clearance.
  • Fuel Economy: The Ridgeline may boast a large, powerful engine, but that doesn’t mean it will lose you money at the pump! Features like Variable Cylinder Management and EcoAssist allow the 2WD Ridgeline to offer an EPA-estimated 19 mpg city and 26 mpg highway*.
