2020 Honda Ridgeline for Sale in North Attleboro, MA
The 2020 Honda Ridgeline is one of the most unique midsized pickups around. Whereas most other trucks are built body-on-frame, Honda uses unibody construction along with a multi-link rear suspension for a more comfortable and less jostling ride. This means that the Ridgeline drives and feels more like a car or comfort-focused SUV than a pickup, but without sacrificing power, space, or capability. The Ridgeline continues its second generation with a streamlined trim lineup of four. Honda has also replaced the six-speed automatic transmission with an all new nine-speed, and all trims now get the Honda Sensing active safety technology suite along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The 2020 Honda Ridgeline is available in four trim levels: Sport, RTL, RTL-E, and Black Edition. The base-model Sport is well equipped, coming with cloth seats, tri-zone climate control, and Honda Sensing, plus some innovative features for accommodating cargo: a versatile dual-action tailgate, a lockable in-bed trunk, and a back seat that lifts up to reveal a hidden storage compartment. The Sport’s infotainment setup has Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a 200-watt audio system with seven speakers and a subwoofer, Bluetooth streaming audio, and an 8-inch high-resolution touchscreen. The RTL upgrades to leather-trimmed seats, power-adjustable front seats, heated front seats, a sunroof, and a power-operated rear window. The RTL-E upgrades to a 540-watt premium audio system with eight speakers and a subwoofer and adds an audio system to the truck bed (the Ridgeline was the first truck to have such a system) that can be controlled via Bluetooth. This trim also gets navigation, a truck-bed power outlet, and more active safety aids. The loaded Black Edition gets all the features of the RTL-E, plus exclusive blacked-out exterior trim and red-accented leather seats.
Mechanical Features and Fuel Economy
The 2020 Honda Ridgeline’s powertrain is made up of a 3.5-liter, 280-horsepower (262 lb.-ft. of torque) V6 engine and a nine-speed automatic transmission. The Sport and RTL trims get standard two-wheel drive but can be ordered with all-wheel drive, while the RTL-E and Black Edition are only built with AWD. This well-rounded pickup is capable of towing a fair amount, as 2WD models can tow up to 3,500 lb. and AWD models can tow up to 5,000 lb. This makes it a great choice for someone with a small boat, pop-up camper, other recreational equipment to transport. When it’s not pulling anything, the Ridgeline can handle up to 1,586 pounds of payload.
In spite of its good power and towing capabilities, the 2020 Honda Ridgeline still delivers fuel economy that should please its drivers. Versions with two-wheel drive get an EPA-estimated 19 mpg city/26 mpg highway (for a combined 22 mpg), while versions with all-wheel drive get an EPA-rated 19 mpg around town and 24 mpg on the highway (for a combined 21 mpg). It also has a 19.5-gallon fuel tank, which gives it a 507-mile fuel range for 2WD models and a 468-mile fuel range for AWD models.
