The fully redesigned Honda Ridgeline made quite an impact when it arrived at dealerships across the country in late 2016, and drivers in the Detroit area have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the updated 2018 model. The 2017 Ridgeline was the first pickup truck in the world to earn a Top Safety Pick+ designation from the experts at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.* The 2018 Honda Ridgeline will continue to offer everything that drivers loved about its 2017 release, but there are a few significant changes worth mentioning. This year’s Ridgeline sees this pickup’s 12-trim lineup condensed to nine better-equipped options, and two new color choices—Lunar Silver Metallic and White Diamond Pearl—have been made available on Sport models.

What Makes the Ridgeline So Special?

Car and Driver notes that the Ridgeline “not only compares with class competitors, it excels with exclusively available features”! Honda Sensing features like adaptive cruise control and a lane keeping assist system come standard in its RTL-E and Black Edition trims, and here as well, drivers will receive a unique truck-bed audio system and a 540-watt eight-speaker Premium Audio System.

Even its more affordable trim levels offer compelling amenities like tri-zone automatic climate control, intelligent variable torque management, optional all-wheel drive (standard in the top two trims), remote engine start, and a Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System. No matter which of the 2018 Ridgeline’s trims you choose, you’ll receive a 3.5L SOHC i-VTEC V-6 engine that’s sure to satisfy even the most adventurous drivers. This engine provides 282 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque, and with AWD equipped, a towing capacity of up to 5,000 pounds. EcoAssist also comes standard, and that means you’ll enjoy an EPA-estimated 19 mpg city and 26 mpg highway in 2WD models!**
