There are plenty of reasons to love the Honda Ridgeline, and you don't have to take our word for it—the 2017 model was named 2017 North American Truck of the Year for a reason. The All-Star Honda team is excited to announce that the 2018 Honda Ridgeline is now officially available and continues to deliver the all-new light-truck experience that has made the current generation a success.

Here are just some of the reasons we love the new Ridgeline.

Power and performance

The 2018 Ridgeline is powered by a direct-injected 3.5-L V6, one that delivers 280 horsepower and 252 pound-feet of torque. Driven by a six-speed automatic transmission and an Intelligent Traction Management System, the new Ridgeline can tow 5,000 lbs and haul 1,584 lbs when properly equipped. And don't forget about that tailgate—it swings out and to the side, as well as down, making the Ridgeline that much more versatile on the job.

Tech options galore

You may not expect a pickup to offer a wide variety of technology options, but the Ridgeline delivers. With Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphone integration, you'll be able to take advantage of your favorite compatible apps from the comfort of the Ridgeline's optional 8-inch touchscreen. The latter also includes HD Radio® and SiriusXM® 2.0. Other highlights include an available Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ and up to four USB ports. 

There's plenty more to love about the 2018 Honda Ridgeline, including a 5-star Overall NHTSA Safety Rating* and active safety features such as a Lane Keeping Assist System and Adaptive Cruise Control. However, this is a pickup that really needs to be driven to be believed. Call, contact us online, or visit us in person at 6141 S 27th St, Greenfield, WI 53221 today to experience everything that it has to offer.
