What Is the 2019 Honda Ridgeline?
After a two-year hiatus, the Honda Ridgeline returned for the 2017 model year. Sharing several design strategies with the Honda Pilot SUV, the Ridgeline is a five-seat, mid-size pickup truck. It's powered by a 280-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine that works with a six-speed automatic transmission. Front- and all-wheel-drive versions are offered. Competitors include the Chevrolet Colorado, Nissan Frontier and Toyota Tacoma.

What Features in the 2019 Honda Ridgeline Are Most Important?
Unlike other mid-size pickup trucks, the Ridgeline has a trunk built into the floor of its cargo bed and its tailgate can either flip down or open from the side to provide easier access to the cargo bed. Cargo-bed speakers are available, along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. Available active safety features include a collision mitigation braking system, forward collision warning, lane keeping assist and lane departure warning.

Should I Buy the 2019 Honda Ridgeline?
If you're looking for a pickup truck that rides well, is quiet and has useful storage areas in both the cab and cargo bed, the Ridgeline is worth a look. However, if you need a mid-size truck that can tow heavy loads and venture far off-road, competing models are better positioned for those duties.
