RidgelineElgin and Schaumburg drivers that are interested in a reliable pickup truck should head to their Honda dealership near Barrington as Brilliance Honda offers a full selection of new and pre-owned Honda models, including the Honda Ridgeline. Since its introduction as a 2006 model year vehicle, the Ridgeline has remained a versatile and dependable pickup. Let’s take a look at why this Honda pickup truck continues to be a favorite among drivers.

Early Ridgeline Models

The 2006 Honda Ridgeline was originally offered in three different trim levels: RT, RTS, and RTL. All three trims were powered by a 3.5L V6 engine. The following year the RTX trim level was added, featuring chrome accents. However, the RTX model only lasted until 2009. It was also during that time that Honda decided to update the interior and exterior styling designs of the Ridgeline.

Current Honda Ridgeline

Over the last few years not much has changed for the Ridgeline, outside of the new front grille and the addition of the Sport trim level. The current 2014 Honda Ridgeline comes available in five trims: RT, Sport, RTS, RTL, and the top-of-the-line SE or Special Edition. Just like with the early Ridgeline models, the latest version comes powered by 3.5L V6 engine that produces 250 hp and 247 lb-ft of torque. The V6 engine comes mated with a  five-speed automatic transmission.

Despite being a pickup, the five-passenger Ridgeline serves quite well as a family vehicle. It comes equipped with a variety of standard features, including a rearview camera, cruise control, a trip computer, and a six-speaker sound system. Other features, depending on the trim, include a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, satellite radio, and an  upgraded sound system. The Ridgeline also delivers a smooth and quiet ride as well as plenty of room for cargo and passengers.
