Come check out the versatile and approachable 2019 Honda Ridgeline truck

If you want the capability of a pickup but don't want one with over the top rugged styling and bumpy handling, come into Honda of Owings Mills to test drive the 2019 Honda Ridgeline. The midsize truck is extremely approachable, and everyone in the family will want to borrow it to do errands around Catonsville MD and beyond.


The Honda Ridgeline comes in six trims - RT, Sport, RTL, RTL-T, RTL-E, and Black Edition - and all of them have the same 3.5L V6 with 280 and 262 lb-ft torque horsepower. With the available intelligent Variable Torque Management™ AWD system you can take on all conditions, whether you're driving along on a perfect day, headed to a snowy place, going through mud, or trying your hand at driving in sand.

Another thing you'll love about the Honda Ridgeline is its handling. Unlike other trucks that deliver a bumpy ride that'll have you reaching for the grab handle, the Ridgeline drives a lot like a car! This is why anyone in the family can borrow the Ridgeline and feel comfortable commuting on the highway or traveling in the downtown.


Most trucks boast big towing specs but the Honda Ridgeline isn't one that's aimed at people who need to bring along super heavy equipment. On the 2WD model you can tow up to 3,500 pounds and on the AWD the specs go up to 5,000 pounds. That's the same as most midsize crossovers, but that's okay for the Ridgeline's target market. Instead, the Ridgeline capitalizes off its extremely useful truck bed that has a payload capacity of 1,465 pounds (2WD) and 1,569 pounds (AWD). Not only does it have solid payload figures but also an extremely flexible truck bed.

To start, there's a dual-action tailgate that opens the traditional way or to the side. The truck bed is extremely wide, too, and can easily fit in sheet rock or boards without need to put them on an angle. There's also an available truck-bed audio system, and it makes yardwork at your Townson home more exciting. Lastly, we're fans of the standard 7.3-cubic foot lockable storage trunk that's in the bed. It's great for tools, purchases, and you can even fill it with ice for tailgating in Baltimore and drain it afterward for easy cleanup.


Tech Specs

Here are some of our favorite technologies that you can get across the Honda Ridgeline lineup!

  • RT (Base): truck-bed lights so you can see at night, a 200-watt speaker, and a push button start.
  • Sport: remote engine start so your truck is the perfect temp when you get in, a smart entry key that pairs well with the push button start, and fog lights.
  • RTL: the acoustic windshield means rides around Ellicott City are less noisy, and you can enjoy longer travels with the 10-way power driver seat and the 4-way power passenger seat.
  • RTL-T: get ready for an 8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. The Honda LaneWatch™ camera watches out for your passenger-side blind spots and navigation ensures you don't get lost.
  • RTL-E: this trim has standard Honda Sensing® advanced safety technologies, a powerful 540-watt premium sound system and that truck-bed audio setup, and automatic high-beams.
  • Black Edition: this is essentially an appearance update of the RTL-E. Like the RTL-E, the Black Edition also has blind spot monitoring with cross-traffic alert, and inside you'll find edgier red ambient lights instead of blue ones.


    When you settle into the Honda Ridgeline you might be surprised that you're behind the wheel of a pickup. That's because the Ridgeline has an SUV-like cabin with a stylish dash layout and details that don't make any allusion to a rancher or farmer lifestyle. Starting at the RTL trim you'll get a leather cabin, and to take it up a notch the Black Edition has perforated leather seats with red contrast stitching. Get a trim that has a moonroof for the summer and heated seats for the winter and you'll be driving around in style and comfort each and every month.
