The new Honda Ridgeline is offered in a choice of four trims: Sport, RTL, RTL-E, and Black Edition. All versions are powered by a naturally-aspirated 3.5-liter V6 engine with 280 horsepower paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Honda’s Intelligent Variable Torque Management (i-VTM4) all-wheel-drive system is standard.
The base Sport comes with 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, a dual-action tailgate, LED taillights, and a Class III trailer hitch with a seven-pin connector. Inside, there is black cloth upholstery along with tri-zone climate control, a multi-angle rearview camera, adaptive cruise control, and an eight-inch touchscreen interface.
By spending extra on the RTL, you’ll get a power sliding rear window and a one-touch power moonroof. This model also comes with leather upholstery, heated front seats, power-adjustable front seats, and SiriusXM.
The RTL-E ups the ante with front/rear parking sensors, power outlets in the truck bed, wireless phone charging, a truck bed sound system, an eight-speaker premium audio system inside the cabin, HD Radio, and rear USB charging ports.
Finally, the Honda Ridgeline Black Edition shares most of the RTL-E’s premium features but adds blacked-out exterior accents, 18-inch black alloy wheels, black/red leather upholstery, and red interior ambient lighting.
