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. The configuration also makes the Ridgeline far more refined, with 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.

Loading Comparison...


The 2019 Honda Ridgeline is the most car-like of trucks. It’s built off the bones of the Honda Pilot; it has a crossover’s car-like unibody chassis, not a body-on-frame like other trucks. It’s lower than other half-ton pickups and less rugged. It can’t compete in the areas of towing and off-road capability, but it doesn’t try to. The payoff is level of comfort and refinement that traditional pickups can’t match. It has a more controlled ride, and corners with more agility.

Rivals such as the Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon are less civilized, and with their truck platforms they’re heavier and stiffer. In terms of ride quality, quiet operation, and general comfort, the 2019 Ridgeline is tops. It comes as crew cab only, no regular or extended cabs available.

There are only a few small updates for 2019, the third year of its second generation. Unlike other 2019 Honda models, advanced safety equipment such as automatic emergency braking has not become standard; on the Ridgeline, only the top models have it.

The Ridgeline is front-wheel drive with available all-wheel drive, and is powered by Honda’s solid 3.5-liter V-6 engine making 280 horsepower, mated to a smooth 6-speed automatic. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in about seven seconds, which is quicker than some trucks even with big V-8s.

Even though the Ridgeline’s maximum towing capacity is just 5,000 pounds—2,000 pounds less than the Chevy Colorado—its payload of 1,569 pounds is competitive for the class.

The Ridgeline is 210 inches long, on a wheelbase of 125.3 inches. The bed is shorter but not narrower than other trucks, at 64 inches long and 50 inches wide between the wheel wells. However there is an optional bed extender that can equalize things, and Honda compensates for the limited length in clever ways. There’s an available swinging tailgate hinged at the side, to allow various loading options, eight tie-downs, and a dry storage pocket. Accessory options include six-speaker audio to 400-watt power inverters that can power a big-screen TV. Under the bed there’s a trunk that can act as a cooler, and it’s big enough to hold a golf bag. With a tonneau cover and locking tailgate, the entire enclosed bed can be locked.

Gas mileage is good for a truck but not great, at 19 mpg city, 26 highway, and 22 combined with front-wheel drive, while all-wheel drive steals 1 mpg across the board.

Honda has not announced plans to bring a hybrid powertrain to the Ridgeline, although it would seem doable, as it shares much of its underpinnings with Acura’s MDX that offers a hybrid. Others in the class, like Chevy’s Colorado, offer higher-mileage alternative powertrains such as a turbodiesel.

The Ridgeline gets a five-star overall rating from the NHTSA this year, with five stars in all but the rollover test, where it earns four stars.

From the IIHS, the 2018 model grabbed the Top Safety Pick award, thanks to top “Good” ratings in all crash tests, a “Superior” rating for its front crash prevention system, and a “Good” rating for its headlights.


The 2019 Ridgeline comes in RT, Sport, RTL, RTL-T, RTL-E, and Black Edition, ranging in price from less than $30,000 to more than $43,000.

Standard equipment in the RT includes keyless ignition, Bluetooth connectivity, a 5.0-inch display for audio, USB audio, and a fold-up rear seat. No Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility is offered on this trim level.

Range-topping Black Edition Ridgelines come equipped with blacked-out exterior and interior trim, special leather seating, 18-inch black alloy wheels, red LED ambient lighting, navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, truck bed audio, automatic emergency braking, a power moonroof, and a premium 540-watt audio system.

All-wheel drive is not available in base RT trim. It’s an option on other models, and becomes standard with the RTL-E.

The RTL probably offers the most value, even without active safety features. It has leather upholstery, a quieter cabin, power-adjustable heated front seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel for $35,865, including destination.


Not surprisingly, given its mission, the 2019 Ridgeline looks more like a car than other trucks. And that’s after a redesign in 2017, because the first generation was too radical. The current Ridgeline has a grille that’s recognizably Honda, at least.


Honda says the Ridgeline has the roomiest cabin among all mid-size pickups. Like the Pilot, the cabin is wide, with plenty of room for up to five adults. It’s quiet and comfortable on long trips, even when fully loaded. The flat front seats offer a relaxed fit and good adjustment, better with power options.

Rear passenger comfort is quite a lot better than rivals like the Colorado or Toyota Tacoma, mostly due to so much head and foot room. The shape of the rear doors allows easy entry and exit. The rear seat is also versatile, folding up against the back wall to allow for larger things to be carried more securely inside the cabin.

The interior materials are high quality, while 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 Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, are contemporary.

Driving Impressions

Honda’s smooth and proven 3.5-liter V-6 makes 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. The engine makes a nice muscular sound under heavy throttle, while still being smooth across the power band. That 0-60 mph time of seven seconds is as quick as any Ridgeline buyer will likely need. But its weight of about 4,500 pounds is a lot for 280 horsepower to pull. It can be challenged when towing its maximum of 5,000 pounds with all-wheel drive.

Without low-range gearing, the Ridgeline is less an off-road performer than a weekend toy-tower. Still, all-wheel drive offers plenty of traction, while electronic drive modes help the Ridgeline perform well in snow, mud, and sand. These settings change the transmission shift pattern to hold lower gears, move power to rear wheels, and soften throttle response. Nearly eight inches of ground clearance is acceptable for a pickup of this size, but the rear control arms leave only about six inches of travel.

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. The Ridgeline is 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.

Available safety features include adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warnings and active lane control. 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.


The 2019 Honda Ridgeline is the standard in pickup truck refinement, if not ruggedness. It’s a creative blend of engineering and imagination, adept at light truck work or daily transportation. The cabin is roomiest in the class, and the bed can do tricks that other trucks can only envy.

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.


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.
