2013 Honda Ridgeline RTL User Reviews
Reliable, functionalBy Robert (I am an Owner), Apr. 25, 2013I've gone through my fair of trucks and always thought American was the only way to go. A friend recommended that I try out the Ridgeline and I am surprised at what it offers. It's super reliable and ... more
2013 Honda Ridgeline OverviewThe Ridgeline comes in three trim levels--RT, Sport, RTS and RTL--and they are all powered by a 3.5L, 250-hp V6 engine that makes 247 lb-ft of torque and utilizes a drive-by-wire electric throttle. The engine is mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission in all three models and they all feature a locking rear differential. The Ridgeline features a towing capacity of 5,000 pounds and a 1,500-pound payload capacity.
The Ridgeline is known as much for its smooth ride as for its tough-guy capabilities, thanks to its closed-box frame and independent suspension. It also has a slew of standard safety features, such as 3-point seatbelts for all five seats, air bags all around, anti-lock brakes, stability assist with traction control, brake assist and tire pressure monitoring. All of those features are standard across the board.
The base-level RT has air conditioning with an air filtration system, power everything, cruise control and a 6-speaker audio system with MP3 playback. The Sport adds 18-inch wheels, fog lamps, an upgraded stereo and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The RTS adds a security system, privacy glass, dual-zone climate controls and a more powerful 7-speaker stereo system with controls on the steering wheel. Like the RTL, it comes with a trailer harness.
The RTL has everything the RTS has, plus a moonroof, heated mirrors, fog lights, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats, HomeLink and XM satellite radio. It's also the only trim level to offer an optional navigation system, which also adds Bluetooth connectivity and a programmable multi-information display.
2013 Honda Ridgeline Model Changes
The Honda ridgeline remains unaltered for 2013 with one exception. A rear view camera now comes standard across all trim levels.
2013 Honda Ridgeline Value
The Honda Ridgeline is in a class of its own--it is the only truck in the full-size segment to use a closed-box frame and unit-body construction. It utilizes independent front and rear suspension, but features a relatively short bed and a car-like driving experience. The Honda pickup is a bit more expensive than the Ford and Dodge, with a starting price around $29,000, and offers only one engine option. The Ridgeline may not be capable of the massive towing numbers of other full-size pickups, but it excels in 5-passenger comfort and handling that is decidedly better than that of a truck.
