2020 Honda Ridgeline

The 2020 Honda Ridgeline is like the Swiss Army knife of pickup trucks – it has a little bit of everything. From its unibody construction to its smooth ride and practical features, this truck is a versatile and reliable option for anyone in the market for a pickup.

The 2020 Ridgeline offers a unique blend of features that make it a standout among its competitors. Its unibody construction sets it apart from the body-on-frame design of other trucks. But that doesn’t mean it’s not capable of handling tough jobs – with a maximum towing capacity of up to 5,000 pounds, it’s more than capable of pulling its weight. Plus, with features like an in-bed trunk and a dual-action tailgate, the Ridgeline offers practicality that is unmatched in the pickup truck market.


The Honda Ridgeline was offered in 4 trim levels in the 2020 model year:

  • Sport
  • RTL
  • Black Edition
  • RTL-E

Design, Comfort, and Quality

Even though the 2020 Ridgeline has a lot of design cues with the Pilot and Passport it is built on; we aren’t worried about its visual similarity to those vehicles. Up to the point where the square bed begins at the rear of the entrance, the Ridgeline resembles the Pilot quite a bit. There is no D-pillar bend in this iteration of Ridgeline; instead, it has a modular construction like previous pickups. This allows for a more fluid entrance into the bed. It’s a good-looking vehicle, but it doesn’t seem to be as tough or capable as other trucks in its class.

Its five-passenger capacity, high roofline, low floor, and generous interior storage space provided by the Ridgeline’s unibody chassis made it one of the most practical daily drivers we’ve ever experienced. Because of the wide and supportive chairs, there is a ton of space beneath each one. More storage space is available by folding the rear seats backward.

Trim Considerations

There are six feature-rich variants to pick from when you look at the 2020 Honda Ridgeline. The V6 engine is the same in every trim level. Don’t be afraid to go with the basic model if you want to save costs. One of Honda’s best truck options is the entry-level RT grade, which has an in-bed trunk and a tailgate with many functions.

A seven-speaker radio system and Bluetooth hands-free functionality are also included as standard equipment. There are a few extra enhancements for the Sport trim. A new set of 18-inch black alloy wheels and tri-zone automatic temperature control with a remote engine start offers the Ridgeline Sport a fresh appearance.

At $43,115, the entry-level Ridgeline RTL-E model comes standard with all-wheel drive and includes features like LED headlights, daytime running and bed lighting, automatic high beams, blind-spot monitoring, front and rear parking sensors, a 150/400-watt power outlet in the bed, a heated steering wheel, ambient interior lighting, second-row USB ports, improved audio via satellite, and a truck bed sound system ideal for tailgating.

Black wheels, paint, and red interior ambient lighting distinguish the Ridgeline Black Edition, which costs $44,615 and has the same equipment as the RTL-E from the standard model. The Ridgeline costs five times more than a Chevrolet Colorado as a basic model. Still, it has amenities that other trucks don’t, including active safety technology and a handy in-bed trunk.

Safety Features

The optional Honda Sensing system elevates the Ridgeline to a new level of driving confidence. Crash Mitigation Braking, Road Departure Mitigation, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Lane Keeping Assist are all features of this system. Another excellent driving aid available for the new Ridgeline is Honda’s LaneWatch camera, a first-of-its-kind class.

Performance and Fuel Economy

The 3.5-liter SOHC V6 engine from Honda is housed under the hood. This powerful engine generates 280 horsepower and 262 pounds-feet of torque. The available power is sent to the wheels rapidly through a six-speed automatic gearbox. Along with offering rapid acceleration, the 2018 Ridgeline can tow up to 5,000 pounds, making it an excellent choice for long-distance driving. Honda’s clever all-wheel-drive technology, which is available as an option, enhances traction in adverse driving conditions. In addition to being excellent for off-roading, the Ridgeline with AWD is a fantastic choice. It gets 19 mpg in the city, 26 on the highway, 22 on the road with the front-wheel-drive Ridgeline, and 19/24/21 mpg with the all-wheel-drive Ridgeline. We recommend going for the all-wheel-drive if you have the additional cash to spare because of the modest decrease in fuel economy.
