Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

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's New on the 2019 Honda Ridgeline?

RT, Sport and RTL trim levels gain a second USB port, and RTL and RTL-T versions now have a power-sliding rear window and moonroof.

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.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
