Honda has announced the pricing and updates for the 2018 Honda Ridgeline, which starts at $30,570 with the destination fees included. The Ridgeline was all-new for the 2017 model year, so the 2018 Ridgeline largely carries over to the new model year with some small changes and a few new color options.
The 2018 Ridgeline now has nine trim levels, compared to 12, including all-wheel drive and two-wheel drive versions. The 2018 Ridgeline also comes with two additional exterior color choices for the Sport trim, with White Diamond Pearl and Lunar Silver Metallic joining Crystal Black Pearl.
The Ridgeline is powered by a 3.5L V6 with 280 horsepower and 262 lb.-ft. of torque, that’s mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The two-wheel drive Ridgeline is rated at 19/26 mpg, while the all-wheel drive models are rated at 18/25 mpg. The 2018 Ridgeline has a 1,584 pound payload capacity and can tow up to 5,000 pounds.
On the safety front, the Ridgeline is currently the only pickup to get the highest Top Safety Pick Plus safety rating from the IIHS.
