Beyond debate, Honda Ridgeline is the most unique pickup truck of any size on the road today. Honda’s second generation Ridgeline Pickup is the only unibody platformed pickup truck on the market with several unique features that you’ll only find on Ridgeline.

Reintroduced to North America after a 2-year absence for model year 2017, Honda’s 2nd generation Ridgeline boasts the midsize pickup truck segment’s largest crew cab confines, a lockable truck-bed integrated ice-cooler, trunk, a 2-way opening tailgate, available 110 Volt inverter power outlet, bedside integrated acoustic stereo speakers, and outstanding 3.5L V6 fuel efficiency. We spend a week behind the wheel of Honda Ridgeline.

Much more than a modified Honda Pilot

Although Honda Ridgeline does hold a strong family resemblance to Honda Pilot, looking to the suspension components, load capacity, and towing capability of Honda’s only pickup truck, it becomes evident that Honda Ridgeline is work-duty, truck tough. On close inspection we discover suspension components, spindles, hubs, casings and other stress, ware components that are cast and tooled 50% larger than like for like Pilot components. Available in FWD (front-wheel-drive) or AWD,(all-wheel-drive) 2019 Honda Ridgeline will get the job done while transporting driver and crew in car-like comfort and tech-driven accommodations.

Honda Ridgeline carries over for 2019 with 2-minor upgrades

Hey, if it’s not broken, why fix it. Currently, Honda Ridgeline is selling as fast as North America Honda can build them. So, for 2019, Ridgeline carries over in its entirety with 2 minor upgrades.

According to American Honda: Like range-topping Ridgeline models, RT, Sport, and RTL models now include a second USB port, while RTL and RTL-T models add a power sliding rear window and moonroof.

Does the 2019 Ridgeline offer ventilated front seats? Would not own one if did not but would if offered.
My 2019 Ridgeline has heated and cooled seats. Not sure of the degree of ventilation however they definitely cool
Welcome Harry.
I have a 2017 Ridgeline. Use it for hunting, fishing, light hauling and lots of in town and highway driving. Currently get 23-25 in town and 26-29 highway. Have gotten as high as 31mpg going 70 mph with 4 people and the air on. Of course, I had a bit of a tailwind. This truck is perfect for most people, but they won't admit it. They're bonded to their chevy, ford, whatever brand they've owned forever.
