Ridgeline Interior

Versatile, powerful, and well-equipped, the Honda Ridgeline Pickup Truck is as ready for the beach as it is for open roadways and rugged trails. Starting at $29,475* MSRP, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline offers tons of utility and comfort features. Whether you’re taking your jet ski out for a cruise, or spending the day relaxing at Santa Monica State Beach, this midsize pickup is bound to make your fun in the sun even more enjoyable.

Intelligent Variable Torque Management AWD (i-VTM4)

Standard on the RTL-E, i-VTM4 uses front-wheel drive on dry pavement and all-wheel drive when greater stability is needed. This system also works with Vehicle Stability Assist, which brakes slipping wheels and applies engine power to the wheels with the most grip. So, when you’re venturing off paved roads to find the perfect waterside camping spot, you’ll have all the maneuverability you need.

Impressive Cargo and Towing Capacities

With all-wheel drive, the Honda Ridgeline tows up to 5,000 pounds. If you’re planning to take your small boat or jet ski out on the water, the Ridgeline’s got you covered. In addition, the Ridgeline’s trunk bed offers 33.9 cubic feet of space, while its lockable In-Bed Trunk offers 7.3 cubic feet. That’s plenty of room for coolers, a radio, beach towels, and much, much more.

All-Season Floor Mats

Available as an accessory, All-Season Floor Mats help keep your Ridgeline’s carpet fresh and clean—no matter how often you hit the beach. Deep grooves catch sand, mud, and excess water from wet sandals and bathing suits, locking it in and keeping it from spreading throughout the cabin. And when it’s time to clean, simply wipe them down with soap and water!

Tri-Zone Automatic Climate Control

If you and your passengers are beach-bound, ride in complete comfort with the available tri-zone automatic climate control system. Separate zones for the driver, front passenger, and rear-seat passengers create a cool haven from Santa Monica’s sometimes sweltering heat. You can also instantly sync the front and rear zones to yours with the push of a button.

Truck Bed Audio System

The RTL-E and Black Edition come equipped with a Truck Bed Audio System—the first of its kind. Rather than conventional speakers, this unique system relies on six exciters located inside the bed wall, which produce up to 540 watts of quality sound. What’s more, the system is controllable via Bluetooth, meaning you can stream tunes from your smartphone while relaxing in your beach chair.
