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.
