Honda Ridgeline Payload, Towing Capacity, and Cargo Storage

The Ridgeline has made a name for itself by bringing high-end safety and technology features to the pickup segment, but that’s not all that sets it apart. At the end of the day, the Ridgeline is capable of doing just about anything that its more conventional peers can do! This pickup’s payload and towing capacity measurements speak for themselves.

  • Accessible Small-Item Storage: Every Ridgeline comes equipped with a Lockable In-Bed Trunk that can store up to 7.3 cu. ft. of equipment. Drivers will also be able to take advantage of standard features like Multi-Functional Center Console Storage, as well as interior and exterior accessories that can make it a lot easier to stay organized.
  • Payload and Bed Size: The Ridgeline’s maximum payload varies depending on which trim level and upgrades you select, but no matter which options you settle on, you’ll be able to accumulate up to 33.9 cu. ft. of cargo. Standard Heavy-Duty Truck Bed Tie-Down Cleats can secure up to 350 lbs., and a Dual-Action Tailgate makes it easier than ever to load bulky equipment. The Ridgeline’s bed is 64 inches long, or 83 inches long with the Tailgate down. It measures 50.0 in., 51.0 in., and 60.0 in. wide at its wheel wells, D-Pillar, and bed walls, respectively.
  • Towing Capacity: With or without All-Wheel Drive, the Ridgeline is equipped to handle just about any heavy load. With 2WD active, its maximum capacity is equal to 3500 lbs., regardless of which trim level you select. Drivers who do end up upgrading with Intelligent Variable Torque Management All-Wheel Drive will increase their maximum capacity to 5000 lbs. An Integrated Class III trailer hitch comes equipped on every Ridgeline trim.

With i-VTM4, the Ridgeline’s Intelligent Traction Management functions in the sand, snow, and mud.
  • Ground Clearance and Off-Road Stability: Every Ridgeline sports 18-Inch Alloy Wheels and All-Season Tires, and it provides ground clearance of up to 7.28 inches when you’re not travelling with heavy cargo (7.87 inches with AWD). MacPherson Strut Front Suspension, Multi-Link Rear Suspension, and two standard stabilizer bars help to provide superior off-road performance, and rigid Unit-Body Construction makes the Ridgeline more stable and responsive wherever you go.
  • Engine Power and Drivetrain Components: The primary components in the Ridgeline’s drivetrain are its 3.5-Liter V6 engine, its 6-Speed Automatic Transmission, and its High Capacity Radiator with two High-Power Fans. Variable Cylinder Management, Hill Start Assist, and Direct Fuel Injection come standard on every trim, and a Heavy Duty Transmission Cooler is available on the Sport trim and up.
