2018 Honda Ridgeline Is The Car Connection’s Best Pickup to Buy 2018
The Car Connection tests and researches new vehicles to make your car search easy. This year, it named the 2018 Honda Ridgeline the Best Pickup Truck to Buy 2018! The Ridgeline is highly practical for the average driver, with flexible capabilities and a wide variety of uses. With 5,000 pounds of towing, 1,400 pounds of hauling, and competitive fuel economy, the Ridgeline appeals to many families in need of a truck.
The 2018 Honda Ridgeline gets 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque from its 3.5L V6 engine. You can choose between two- or four-wheel drive, depending on where you think you’ll take your truck. A six-speed automatic transmission also comes standard. A huge part of the Ridgeline’s comfort and stance comes down to its structure, which it shares with the Honda Pilot. As the only unibody pickup in its segment, the Ridgeline rides confidently and smoothly. It’s far more maneuverable around town, in large part because of its crossover-style frame. It also comes exclusively with a four-door cabin, since most buyers like the ability to bring the family along!
You and your passengers will stay comfortable in the Ridgeline, too. Not only does it share a frame with the Pilot, but they also share several interior fittings. There’s comfortable seating for four adults inside the 2018 Honda Ridgeline. The cabin is quiet and offers supremely comfortable seating. It’s also sider and lower than most trucks, and it has a better ride quality and interior space. Thanks to the Ridgeline’s acoustic windshield, you’ll hardly notice noise from the road. You can also fold the rear seats up for flat-floor rear-seat storage. You can fit a full bike in the back without taking its front wheel off!
The Ridgeline’s bed is also a little different from others in the segment. Instead of a traditional bedliner, the 2018 Honda Ridgeline has UV-treated plastic material in the bed. This material is durable and washable, as well! There are eight tie-downs for flexibility and security, as well as a seven-pin connector on the tow hitch. The Ridgeline lets you haul up to 1,400 pounds in the bed and easily hose it down afterwards. It’s also a breeze to tow a 22-foot boat when you head out on vacation. For flexible access, the Ridgeline’s tailgate hinges on both the bottom and side. There’s also a built-in cooler under the bed floor, complete with a drain plug!
