What You Will Like

While virtually every pickup truck in the U.S. uses a body on frame style chassis, the Honda Ridgeline utilizes a car-like unibody structure. This allows for a much more sophisticated driving experience, with a stiffer chassis, a better ride and much better handling, making it far more refined and makes fewer compromises than just about any truck on the market. The Honda Ridgeline competes with other compact pickup trucks such as the Toyota Tacoma. Prices for the Ridgeline start at around $29,500.

What's New For 2018

After a complete redesign in 2017 the Honda Ridgeline returns for 2018 mostly unchanged aside from a simplification of trim levels, and the addition of exterior paint schemes. White Diamond Pearl and Lunar Silver Metallic are now offered for the Sport trim previously only available in Crystal Black Pearl.

Introduction

The unique Honda Ridgeline came back redesigned for 2017, after its first generation ended with discontinuation in 2014. It’s mechanically unchanged for 2018, just some package and trim tweaks. (A refined version is being launched for 2019.)

What makes Ridgeline unique is that it’s technically a crossover; that is, the body is integrated with the chassis, like a car. It isn’t bolted onto the frame, like every other pickup truck in the world.

A body-on-frame design is more rugged, so it’s better for the demands a truck usually encounters, but it’s heavier and less rigid. The mid-size Ridgeline uses the platform of the full-size Honda Pilot SUV, so it rides and handles more like a crossover SUV than a truck. And the current-generation Ridgeline has 28 percent more torsional rigidity than the previous generation.

Ridgeline front-wheel drive, with available all-wheel drive.

Rivals like the Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon are quite civilized, but in terms of ride quality, quiet operation, and general comfort, the Ridgeline is tops. Honda says it has the roomiest cabin in its class.

The engine is also the same as the Pilot’s, a 3.5-liter V6 with 6-speed automatic transmission. It was increased in power in 2017, to 280 horsepower with 262 pound-feet of torque. The acceleration is adequate but can be challenged when towing.

Fuel mileage is solid, at 19 mpg City, 26 Highway with front-wheel drive, and one less mpg with all-wheel drive.

The Ridgeline also grew a bit with its redesign; unlike before, it now can hold a sheet of plywood that’s 48 inches wide in the bed, with a payload rating of 1584 pounds. It’s rated to tow 5000 pounds with all-wheel drive, or 3500 pounds with front-wheel drive.

If towing or hauling are priorities, however, the Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon, both offer the option of diesel power, with more torque.

Lineup

The 2018 Honda Ridgeline comes in a broad variety of trim levels. Among them: Ridgeline RT ($29,630); Sport ($33,170); RTL ($33,930); RTL-T ($36,080); and RTL-E ($41,620). All-wheel drive is optional ($1900). (All prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge).

Walkaround

The styling changed for 2017, because that first generation was too original and radical to be accepted the way Honda wanted it to be. There was sales resistance. The current four-door crew cab Ridgeline looks more like a truck, including the grille that is recognizably Honda, unlike the first Ridgeline.

It still looks like a car, though. The Chevy Colorado is a better-looking truck for truck lovers.

The Ridgeline is 210 inches in length, on a wheelbase of 125.3 inches.

With a cargo bed that’s 64 inches long, the plywood fits with the tailgate dropped. The tailgate is hinged at the side as well as the bottom, so it opens like a door to make loading easier; and it locks to create a huge in-bed trunk, when it’s equipped with a bed cover. (Other trucks do this with traditional dropping tailgates.)

A 400-watt power inverter can power a big screen TV in the bed, with another option of six speakers integrated in the cargo bed walls. Equipped this way, the Ridgeline can be the ultimate tailgate party special.

Interior

The Ridgeline is abundantly roomy, as crew cab only, no regular or extended cab versions. There’s plenty of leg, head, and hip room in for all three passengers in the rear. The rear seats fold to create cargo space that Honda boasts is best in class, for full-size crew cab pickups.

The interior materials are high quality, while the front seats are comfortable all day, with a relaxed fit. The sound systems range from good to excellent.

The controls that are actual knobs are attractive, straightforward and intuitive, no manual required to figure them out. The touch controls on the big screen at the center of the dash have large icons, but they aren’t so simple, including, maddeningly, the audio adjustment, an old Honda challenge. That said, the navigation system is fairly easy to function, and the infotainment and connectivity options, which now include the choice of Apple Car Play or Android Auto, are contemporary.

Driving Impressions

The Ridgeline is a very smooth operator, composed and compliant on all surfaces from bumpy paved to graded gravel. It’s hard to find flaws in the driving dynamics. The steering could have a bit more weight and provide more feedback, but the same could be said of any contemporary truck with electric power steering. All-wheel drive Ridgelines include torque vectoring at the rear axle, lending stability in corners, especially when traction is reduced by the road surface.

The unibody structure feels exceptionally solid, and the suspension is a little firmer than on the Pilot in order to handle a truck’s payloads, but that firmness doesn’t diminish the ride.

Acceleration performance is respectable but not thrilling. Its weight of about 4500 pounds is a lot for 280 horsepower to pull. The towing capacity of 5000 pounds with all-wheel drive, 3500 pounds for front-wheel drive, is near the bottom of the list of midsize pickups.

Available safety features include adaptive cruise control, autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning and lane assist. The lane departure feature is a little too eager to assert itself, jiggling the steering wheel when the truck’s trajectory even slightly heads toward a painted line at the edge of the road. That would be the apex of any curve. On a winding two-lane road, as with every such system we’ve ever experienced, the false alarms are constant. All they do by crying wolf is destroy their own credibility.

Summary

The Ridgeline is the standard in pickup truck refinement, if not ruggedness. It’s a creative blend of engineering and imagination, adept at truck work or daily transportation. The cabin is roomiest in the class, and the bed can do tricks that other trucks can only envy. Honda’s 3.5-liter V6 is proven and capable in this application.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
