Honda Ridgeline Truck in Winnipeg: Features, Inventory & Review
Although Honda may be more widely known for their sedans, hatchbacks, and coupes, their Ridgeline pickup has carved out a niche for itself in the compact / mid-sized segment of the truck market.
Mixing the elements of solid functionality, comfort, and smooth driving, the 2019 Honda Ridgeline is a great all-rounder with a loyal following. What are the main features it offers?
Body Shape and Construction
The Ridgeline is available in a single format, with a short truck bed and a crew cabin that seats five in comfort, with easy access to all seats through four full-size doors.
Unusually for a pickup of this size and price bracket, the Ridgeline features a unibody construction for increased strength, better handling, and a lower weight than the frame-on-body design used by most of its competitors.
And importantly, the 2019 Ridgeline's body shape has been completely restyled from its previous idiosyncratic design to give a great-looking pickup that's both modern looking and stylish.
Engine and Performance
As with most larger Honda vehicles, the Ridgeline is powered by a 3.5L V6 engine producing 280 horsepower and 262lb-ft torque. The power is a passed through a six-speed automatic transmission to all-wheel drive.
One of the most impressive assets of the 2019 Ridgeline is its smooth driving ability, thanks to its assertive acceleration, unibody construction, and advanced coil-spring suspension. While the Ridgeline is no off-road demon, it can certainly handle its share of the rougher stuff.
And although a pickup is never going to head the fuel economy lists compared to other form factors, for its size and power the Ridgeline offers very acceptable figures of 12.8L / 100km for city driving and 9.5L / 100km highway.

Thanks partly to its spacious crew cabin, the Ridgeline offers comfort levels much closer to a family car than a traditional pickup. Seating up to five, the rear seats are configurable to allow more cargo space if needed. In-cabin features include:
- Heated front bucket seats.
- Dual-zone automatic air conditioning at the front.
- Rear HVAC with separate controls.
- Dual front LCD monitors.
- Bluetooth connectivity with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
- Steering wheel-mounted entertainment controls.
Truck Bed and Towing
Of course, one of the most important parts of a pickup is how much cargo it can carry in comfort. The Ridgeline's truck bed may be a relatively short one, but it nonetheless offers close to 34 cubic feet of cargo space. And as a highly worthwhile bonus, there's also a lockable in-bed trunk offering 7.3 cubic feet of secure storage.
For convenience, the tailgate swings both outward and downward, giving maximum ease of access to both bed and trunk. Towing ability is rated at 2,268kg which is about what you'd expect from a compact pickup rather than a full-size truck.
