What's New for the 2018 Honda Ridgeline?

Last year the Ridgeline staked out its position as the midsize truck with an SUV-style cabin and an exclusive in-bed trunk. Insisting on covering all of the bases, Ridgelines strive to meet every requirement of a truck and a passenger ride. Significant payload and towing capability keep loads moving. Honda's many technologies promote performance, entertain, comfort and protect passengers. The 2018 Honda Ridgeline brings this blend of services to more consumers this year.

Honda Ridgeline Safety

Like all Hondas, the truck cabin has an ACE body structure to withstand impact. SmartVent front airbags are electronically controlled for proper levels of inflation. Unlike some of its rivals, the 2018 Honda Ridgeline can claim a good safety record with five stars from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Moving the truck into the future, there are Honda Sensing systems. The lane keeping assist and road departure mitigation combine to keep the truck within the marked lines. Collision mitigation braking may respond if the driver misses a collision alert. Automatic high beams lower when oncoming traffic is too close. A cross traffic monitor aids the driver when watching for traffic during reverse maneuvers. A blind spot system trains sensors on the car's sides to warn the driver when traffic is too close for a safe lane change. Adaptive Cruise Control regulates how fast the truck can go when encountering busy traffic. LaneWatch puts a camera in the passenger side mirror to eliminate uncertainty about side traffic. These systems are particularly significant since several of the Ridgeline's rivals offer no automation and very few alerts.
