Manhattan Honda Dealership | Suffolk County 2018 Ridgeline

The 2018 Honda Ridgeline has been named The Car Connection’s “Best Pickup to Buy” for 2018. Let’s see why this versatile pickup caught the attention of The Car Connection this year.

First, you have a pickup truck if you need to carry cargo. With a cargo bed capacity of 1400 pounds, you can handle most daily loads. The Ridgeline also can tow up to 5000 pounds when properly equipped. The nice thing about the Ridgeline is it lives in the world of reality where a pickup is also a comfortable people carrier, not a massive block of metal that climbs trees. It also doesn’t make extravagant claims about its performance while ignoring the fact it won’t fit in most garages.

The Ridgeline is The Car Connection’s choice because it satisfies a large number of needs for the American consumer; cargo, towing, people, comfort, and technology. The Ridgeline shares its roots with the Honda Pilot and both succeed in providing a comfortable and quiet cabin. This is due to the unibody construction employed by Honda, and it creates a very stable and safe cabin structure. The 2018 Honda Ridgeline sits lower and wider than many equivalent pickups and uses a standard four-door configuration, making it easier to enter or exit and providing lots of room for up to five adults. In addition, the rear seat folds up vertically against the rear wall, providing a large flat cargo area inside the cabin for items an owner doesn’t want to leave in the bed.

In back, Honda uses a washable UV-treated plastic material rather than a bed liner. There are eight tie-downs to secure cargo. For convenience, the rear tailgate opens at the top like a conventional pickup but also opens from the side similar to a standard door for easier access to cargo in the bed. There is a standard 7-pin connection to hook up your favorite trailer or boat. There is even a locking “trunk” located in the cargo bed for items you want to be kept out of sight. The trunk has a drain plug so you can use it as an ice chest for that trip to the park or beach. You can even enjoy your favorite music with an industry-first Truck Bed Audio System.

Safety is not ignored while the Ridgeline touts its other benefits. The available Honda Sensing® suite of features includes collision mitigation, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control, and lane keeping assistance. Available backup sensors help keep you away from objects behind you, and a remote engine start system can get your Ridgeline up and running when you need to depart quickly.
