Finding a pickup that will keep you satisfied for years to come doesn’t have to feel like a chore. The experts at Car and Driver have just unveiled this year’s 10Best Trucks and SUVs, and the results are clear: The 2018 Honda Ridgeline was chosen as the best midsize pickup on the road. Mid-Michigan’s drivers are sure to agree once they’ve had the chance to get behind the wheel.

Features and Capabilities of the Ridgeline

This pickup offers more than just raw power. The Ridgeline’s available trim levels include features that make it an entertainment powerhouse, a dependable job-site companion, and one of the safest pickups ever manufactured.

  • Drivetrain and Towing Power: This year’s Ridgeline has been equipped with a 280-hp 3.5L V6 engine that’s capable of generating 262 lb-ft of torque. Its truck bed can store up to 33.9 cubic feet of cargo, and has been designed with a dual-action tailgate that makes loading heavy cargo a breeze. When you equip your Ridgeline with Intelligent Variable Torque Management AWD—available on every trim other than the RT—it can tow up to 5,000 pounds.
  • Safety: The Ridgeline keeps safety as a top priority. In its RTL-E and Black Edition trim levels, the Honda Sensing safety package comes standard. Every model comes standard with vehicle stability assist with traction control, a multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines, and Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure.
  • Media and Entertainment: On its high-level RTL-E and Black Edition trims, the Ridgeline’s interior sports a 540-watt 8-speaker premium audio system. These trims will also include the very first truck-bed audio system that’s perfect for tailgating. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a Display Audio touchscreen come standard from the RTL-T trim level up.
