The 2020 Honda Ridgeline, aka The Ultimate Tailgate Vehicle, just got better. Outdoing its predecessors for the 2020 model year, the famed Honda pickup known for its capability, versatility, and party-ability, now comes equipped with several new features that make driving this trailblazing truck more fun — and safer — than ever before. Let’s take a look.
The Honda Ridgeline runs on a 3.5-liter direct-injected i-VTEC™ V6 engine with Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) and for 2020 is paired to a standard 9-speed automatic transmission regardless of trim level.
This pairing puts out a peak 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. And what makes this feature even more fun are the steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters. The shifters add a delightful dose of adventure to the driving experience and allow for increased control while on the road.
All-wheel drive comes standard on the RTL-E and Black Edition, but is available on all trim levels. The AWD system uses Honda’s advanced i-VTM4® system to improve and enhance all-weather performance and handling.
Building off its greatness, the 2020 Honda Ridgeline party-favorite tailgate now includes a remote locking feature and the rear doors open wider to make entering and exiting easer.
The life of the party carries over from the tailgate to the Ridgeline’s interior. The 2020 Ridgeline comes with standard Honda Display Audio system, Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® integration, and an 8-inch touchscreen.
Plus, drivers have the choice of opting for the 8-way power driver’s seat with adjustable lumbar support and bonus! ambient interior lighting.
The 2020 Ridgeline is expected to receive top ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, due in large part to Honda Sensing® now being a standard feature across Ridgeline trims.
Honda Sensing® is Honda’s suite of advanced safety and driver assistive features and includes:
- Collision Mitigation Braking System with Forward Collision Warning
- Lane Keeping Assist System
- Road Departure Mitigation with Lane Departure Warning
- Adaptive Cruise Control
The cherry on top is the sheer range of Honda Genuine Accessories designed specifically for Ridgeline pickups. From hard covers to skid plates, bed extenders to bike attachments, the Ridgeline can be perfectly outfitted to match your lifestyle.
What the Ridgeline does best is take the idea of pickup and amplify it. The Ridgeline gives drivers the ability to maximize recreational activities — sporting events, picnics, outdoor gatherings — and offers drivers who need a pickup for the job, a reliable workhorse that weaves versatility and utility. For example, the Ridgeline includes class-leading cargo-hauling and towing capabilities — 1,584 lb. maximum payload capacity, up to 5,000 lb. towing with all-wheel drive.
