The 2018 Honda Ridgeline Trim Levels

The 2018 Honda Ridgeline is a versatile and powerful pickup truck that can handle just about any situation on the road. From rugged jobs to the daily grind, the Ridgeline is packed with features and equipment to make any task at hand a little easier. And with comfort, technology, and luxurious features most drivers would associate with luxury sedans or SUVs, the Ridgeline is redefining what a pickup can be.

Power and Capability Under the Hood

Under the hood of the dynamic Ridgeline is a V6 engine that achieves up to 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. A 2WD version of the Ridgeline, which is standard on the RT model, gets a slightly better fuel economy with an EPA-estimated 19 city / 26 highway / 22 combined mpg.* For drivers who prefer AWD, it is an available option starting with the Sport trim through the RTL-T and becomes standard on the RTL-E and Black Edition trims. With an AWD configuration, the Ridgeline will earn an EPA-estimated 18 city / 25 highway / 21 combined mpg.*
