New 2018 Honda Ridgeline for Sale in San Diego, CA
2018 Honda Ridgeline at Pacific Honda
When it first appeared in 2006, nobody was quite sure what to make of the Honda Ridgeline. An innovative crossover-based pickup, it was ahead of its time. After a three-year hiatus, it reappeared for a second generation last year, and it looks like the second time’s a charm. The San Diego customers served by Pacific Honda will find a lot to like in this truck!
2018 Honda Ridgeline Details
- Engine: 280 hp i-VTEC® V-6
- Transmission: Six-speed automatic
- Drivelines: FWD, AWD
- Towing Capacity: 3,500 lbs FWD, 5,000 lbs AWD
The 2018 Honda Ridgeline picks up where last year’s pickup left off, with the exception of some new colors available to the Sport trim level.
That means a repeat performance for the engine, which is inherited from the Honda Pilot. The six-speed automatic transmission makes an encore appearance, as do the LT, RTS, Sport, RTL, RTL-T, RTL-E, and Honda Ridgeline Black Edition trim levels.
Rather than using body-on-frame construction, this pickup uses unibody construction like you’d find on a new Honda SUV. You’ll find better handling because of it, but it’s no less practical for that. It’s still very much a workhorse.
2018 Honda Ridgeline Special Features
There are some great features on offer here, including a dual-action liftgate that hinges sideways or like a conventional gate, in-cab storage cubbies, and an in-bed trunk with a built-in drain plug so it can double as a cooler.
One feature we especially like is limited to the RTL-E and Black Edition trims. You can use a standard audio or Bluetooth® hookup to make the bed of the Honda Ridgeline function as an enormous speaker. It may seem unusual, but it’s a lot of fun for tailgating!
Optional Honda Sensing Suite features, including Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keep Assist, Road Departure Warning, and Adaptive Cruise Control set this truck apart
That’s not all. There’s an eight-inch display for the HondaLink® infotainment system, and all that real estate makes the most of the optional Android Auto® or Apple CarPlay®, which mirror your smartphone for easy app access.
