The 2019 Honda Ridgeline is a pickup truck unlike any other. says, “the Ridgeline is a solid cargo hauler, inside and out.” And the Ridgeline is the only pickup option that “holds 4-foot-wide plywood sheets.” With a car-like ride quality that doesn’t skimp out on utility, as well as a host of features and equipment inside the cabin—from technology to safety to entertainment—the Ridgeline is the total package.

Towing Capacity

The towing capacity will vary depending on whether the 2WD or AWD version is right for you. Attempting to tow a load that exceeds your vehicle’s limits is dangerous and can damage the mechanics of your vehicle. But for drivers who need to tow light-weight trailers, teardrop campers, jet skis, and the like might find the 2WD version more than enough utility with a 3,500 lbs. capacity. And for drivers who need to tow heavier loads, the AWD Ridgeline can tow up to 5,000 lbs.
