The 2020 Honda Ridgeline is a hefty crossover pickup that combines conventional truck utility with an innovative cabin loaded with features. The 2020 Ridgeline is great for anyone looking for a truck and who doesn’t mind a non-traditional silhouette. Here are some of the details about the Ridgeline’s performance and key components.
The 2020 Ridgeline has a wide, low stance with clean bodylines in the front and unassuming pickup styling in the back. It comes in four trims: Sport, RTL, RTL-E, and Black Edition. LED taillights come standard, and the truck bed is outfitted with a creative tailgate that uses a proprietary hinge to open down or sideways. Optional upgrades include LED headlights, automatic daytime running lights, 18-inch black or diamond-cut alloy wheels, an all-black exterior trim, an aggressive sport grille, roof rails, fender flares, skid plates, and crossbars.
The 2020 Ridgeline only has one powertrain, a 3.5-liter direct-injection V-6 engine that pairs with a nine-speed automatic transmission. It produces 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque, giving drivers up to 3,500 pounds of towing capacity with standard two-wheel-drive. All-wheel-drive is also available, boosting the Ridgeline’s towing capacity up to 5,000 pounds when properly equipped. A high-capacity radiator with two fans keeps the Ridgeline’s engine cool when it is working its hardest.
You’ll be able to enjoy a comfortable ride in the 2020 Ridgeline, with quick, even acceleration and smooth handling even with a fully loaded truck bed and cargo in tow. The engine is responsive but controlled, and the Ridgeline can easily round corners with very little body lean. It has an independent coil-sprung rear suspension that does a great job of absorbing bumps in the road, and the power steering makes handling this behemoth of a vehicle pleasant and easy. To take your Ridgeline further, opt for available all-wheel-drive with intelligent traction management and four different driving modes for standard terrain, snow, sand, and mud.
The Ridgeline’s spacious cabin is full of sturdy, premium materials and comfortable touches like fold-down armrests for the front seats. It has seating for up to five passengers, and even the back middle seat has a good amount of leg, hip, and headroom. The base trim comes with premium cloth seats, which you can upgrade to a leather trim for a more luxurious ride along with features like a power moonroof and red ambient lighting. The Ridgeline’s interior also features creative storage options, like a lockable in-bed trunk that can store 7.3 cubic feet of additional cargo. It also has a drain plug, grocery bag hooks, and designated sections for cargo dividers.
The Ridgeline comes equipped with a useful range of advanced driver assistance technology to help keep you safe on the road. Standard features include Honda’s Collision Mitigation Braking System, Road Departure Mitigation System, lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, hill start assist, a multi-angle rearview camera, and intelligent traction management. A blind-spot monitoring system is also available if you want extra support when changing lanes or navigating tight parking lots.
