Honda Ridgeline: More Than Just a Compact Pickup with Mid-Size Aspirations

You know our automaker's flagship truck as a capable, safe, and tech-savvy alternative to both large SUVs and other light-duty siblings in the segment. But did you know it's also great with fuel, loaded with an off-road tailgate party or highway pleasure-cruise worth of amenities, and backed by all the quality assurance that you've come to expect from Honda? Urse Honda in Bridgeport has the scoop.

For one, its engine's Variable Cylinder Management&#trade; (VCM®) system uses i-VTEC® valves to disable cylinders under specific conditions, helping optimize gas usage. Factor in the Eco Assist&#trade; System, which only uses components when needed, and you can get real-time feedback on how fuel is used while receiving efficient driving encouragement. 2019 Ridgeline also employs a high-capacity radiator with high-power fans, which join forces to help dissipate heat and keep your engine running as cool, and therefore as effectively, as possible. Of course, these aren't to mention the engine's pairing with a six-speed auto transmission to economically allocate power.

Secondly, the pickup's convenience feature roster's second to none. Climb up in the cab, tap push-button start, and you'll see what we mean as a spacious, well-equipped cabin spreads out around you. Air conditioning with air filtration comes standard in the Ridgeline RT base, while tri-zone automatic climate control is a mainstay in Sport trims and later, making it easy to get the interior the way you like it. What's more, the leather-wrapped steering wheel, a feature of Ridgeline RTL and RTL-T, gets heating in trims like Ridgeline RTL-E and Black Edition, providing a pleasant handling feel.

But let's not forget the piece de resistance -- a dual-action tailgate, which you can open vertically or horizontally and, when flat, supports up to 300 pounds. Nor should we fail to mention the available lockable In-Bed Trunk®, offering up to 7.3 cubic feet of space, capable of fitting an 82-quart ice chest and featuring a drain plug to serve as a cooler. Decide to picnic near Morgantown or camp out around Clarksburg or Fairmont, and built-in grocery bag hooks and guides for accessory cargo dividers offer versatile storage solutions.

Finally, decide to purchase or lease a new 2019 Honda Ridgeline, and peace of mind comes standard. The truck showcases a comprehensive warranty, with 3-year/36,000-mile new vehicle coverage, 5 years or 60,00 miles of powertrain coverage, and 5 years and unlimited miles of protection against rust perforation.
