Top Off a Summer Season of Tailgate Fun in the 2018 Honda Ridgeline

The Honda Ridgeline pickup is back for a new model year, and we at Honda of Westport can certainly see its promise for putting some memorable finishing touches on the warm months here in the Westport, CT area.

Nine trims present for 2018, from the two-wheel drive Honda Ridgeline RT, Sport, RTL, and RTL-T to the Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ (i-VTM4) all-wheel drive-capable Honda Ridgeline Sport, RTL, RTL-T, RTL-E, and strikingly styled Honda Ridgeline Black Edition. The 2018 Honda Ridgeline Sport trim stands out among its siblings, to be sure, for White Diamond Pearl and Lunar Silver Metallic finishes joining Crystal Black Pearl as exterior color variants. But looks aren’t all, and under the hood, in the Honda Ridgeline cabin, and without, you’ll see what we mean.

Find yourself in the high-quality, soft-touch Honda Ridgeline interior, and you can avail yourself of the raw power of a 280 peak horsepower, 3.5-liter direct-injected SOHC i-VTEC V6 engine to take you on that late-summer highway cruise or off the beaten path to the campsite alike. Plus, you can count on a wide-ratio six-speed automatic transmission for excellent efficiency and the pulling chops of 262 pound-feet of peak torque (SAE net) for the up to 5,000-pound trailerful you’re planning to take in tow. 2018 Honda Ridgeline is even capable of lugging payloads up to 1,584 pounds, meaning prowess for road swag and passengers.

But no party in the hills can go off without the entertainment options to kick it up a notch. 2018 Honda Ridgeline not only offers an available factory-installed Truck Bed Audio System, optional 8-inch Display Audio touchscreen, and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility for smartphone interface. You can also opt for a model with HD Radio and SiriusXM 2.0 support for expanded listening choices. Plus, up to four USB ports present depending on trim, making adding audio peripherals to your setup a snap, and a Dual Action Tailgate makes for quick access to the Honda In-Bed Trunk, which can also double as a cooler to put fresh beverages within reach.

Feel a pre-fall “last hurrah” coming on? Stop by and visit us here at Honda of Westport for a test drive in a 2018 Honda Ridgeline. Our Honda enthusiasts will be happy to show you how our automaker’s flagship pickup stands apart for the rest when it comes to summer fun.
