TORRANCE, Calif. – The 2019 Honda Ridgeline arrives at dealerships nationwide beginning tomorrow with a starting Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP1) of $29,990 (excluding $975 destination and handling). As before, Ridgeline bests the competition with its class-leading EPA2 fuel economy ratings of 19/26/22 (city/highway/combined) for 2WD and 18/25/21 for AWD models.

The Honda Ridgeline is the ultimate tailgate vehicle for sporting events, picnics, and other gatherings thanks to industry-first and exclusive features like a Dual Action Tailgate that provides easy access to the lockable and weather-sealed In-Bed Trunk®, an available in-bed 115V AC power outlet, and a world’s first Truck Bed Audio System.

The 2019 Ridgeline’s high-quality cabin offers an array of standard and available features and technologies. Standout options consist of an 8-inch Display Audio touchscreen with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ integration, LED headlights (low beam), 3-zone automatic climate control, an 8-way power driver’s seat with adjustable lumbar support, and ambient interior lighting.

The 2019 Honda Ridgeline is powered by a 3.5-liter direct-injected i-VTEC™ V6 engine with Variable Cylinder Management™ (VCM™) mated to a wide ratio 6-speed automatic transmission, with a peak engine output of 280 horsepower and 262 lb.-ft. of torque (SAE net). All-wheel-drive models utilize one of Honda’s most advanced AWD technologies – Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ (i-VTM4), providing enhanced all-weather performance and handling.

What’s New for 2019? 
Like range-topping Ridgeline models, RT, Sport, and RTL models now include a second USB port, while RTL and RTL-T models add a power sliding rear window and moonroof.
