Vehicle Profile: 2020 Honda Ridgeline
Pickup trucks have never been more popular, so it takes a lot for any particular model to stand out from the crowd. With a redesigned exterior, a rider-focused cabin and power to spare, the 2020 Honda Ridgeline impresses on many levels.
The defining feature of a truck is its ability to help you get the job done, and the 2020 Honda Ridgeline delivers. If you choose a two-wheel-drive model, the pickup can tow up to 3,500 pounds while all-wheel-drive trims increase that figure to 5,000 pounds. No matter which Ridgeline you go with, its capable V6 engine will produce 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. Meanwhile, the innovative Eco Assist™ System maximizes fuel efficiency and helps the Ridgeline achieve 26 mpg on the highway.*
Style and comfort
No matter where the road takes you, the 2020 Ridgeline is sure to make an impression. Outside, the truck sets itself apart with sculpted, aerodynamic body lines, signature LED headlamps and a sleek, flowing profile. For an even more imposing presence, consider the Black Edition’s exclusive 18-inch alloy wheels.
In the cabin, everything is about you. Spacious seating for five offers room for the whole family, available leather-trimmed seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel provide an air of sophistication and the available one-touch power moonroof lets you bask in the sun. At the same time, standard tri-zone automatic climate control allows everyone to ride in comfort and available heated front seats will keep you warm in the colder months.
Honda didn’t stop at making the 2020 Ridgeline powerful and comfortable; it made its flagship pickup versatile as well. You can fold down the 60/40-split rear row to open up more interior cargo space and even take advantage of storage compartments hidden underneath them. Similarly, the bed features a concealed 7.3 cubic foot In-Bed Trunk® equipped with a drain plug so you can store wet gear worry-free. The dual-action tailgate is further proof of Honda’s innovative spirit, as it can either fold down in the traditional manner or swing over to the side for easy access to the bed.
The 2020 Honda Ridgeline is stuffed with technology designed to keep you safe and entertained. Every trim comes standard with an eight-inch touch-screen infotainment display, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone connectivity and Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink®. There’s even an available industry-first truck-bed audio system that lets you enjoy your favorite music at the campsite, the worksite and everywhere in between.
You can set out for adventure with confidence thanks to the Honda Sensing® suite of safety and driver-assistance systems, which comes standard on every Ridgeline. The Collison Mitigation Braking System™ can help you avoid an accident by automatically applying the brakes if it detects an imminent collision and Adaptive Cruise Control will keep you at a safe following distance on the highway. Simultaneously, the Road Departure Mitigation System and Lane Keeping Assist System will work in tandem to keep you perfectly centered in your lane by delicately correcting your steering if necessary.
Whether you’re looking for a family vehicle, a partner on the worksite or a weekend companion, the 2020 Honda Ridgeline has everything you need.
