The 2018 Honda Ridgeline has been selected by Car and Driver as the Best Midsize Pickup of the year in its annual 10Best Awards.

With innovative and industry-first features as well as a robust list of comfort and safety equipment, the Ridgeline is redefining what a pickup can be.

Power and Fuel Economy

The engine is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission and comes in either FWD or AWD configurations. The drivetrain options will yield slightly different fuel economy estimates, but no matter which one driver choose, every model of the Ridgeline will achieve impressive efficiency.
