In recent years, we’ve seen SUVs transform from bulky to compact. We’ve watched sedans evolve from practical to luxurious. But for the most part, trucks have remained the same. Honda has been working to break out of that mold with the Ridgeline, now in its 14th model year.

The 2019 Honda Ridgeline for sale in Asheboro offers us the latest glimpse into the future of pickup trucks. With the newest Ridgeline just now starting to hit the streets, here’s a first glance.

The Ultimate Tailgating Experience: Honda’s Ridgeline

Exterior

The Ridgeline is distinguished by the unibody design that gives it more of a car-like look and feel. The aerodynamic body design improves fuel efficiency while reducing noise, and is backed by what may be the coolest truck bed on the road.

The Ridgeline’s tailgate opens down in a conventional fashion. It also opens to the side for more convenient access. The Ridgeline’s In-Bed Trunk®  is a lockable, 7.3-cu. ft. storage space that keeps your possessions out of the elements, out of the way, and out of sight. It even has a drain plug so you can use it as an ice chest.

If you’re going to fill up the trunk with ice, you may as well bring along the big screen TV and connect it to the Ridgeline’s power outlet, which you’ll find in the wall of the bed. And to complete the ultimate tailgating truck experience, the Ridgeline features an industry-first Truck Bed Audio System that pumps out music right from the walls of the bed.

Interior

The cabin of the Ridgeline picks up right where the truck bed lays off. Five adults sit comfortably on the leather interior and enjoy tri-zone climate control and a one-touch power moonroof. They also benefit from all the high-tech features expected in today’s vehicles, such as:

  • Apple CarPlay™
  • Android Auto™
  • SiriusXM™ Satellite Radio
  • Rearview camera
  • Remote ignition start
  • Available 8” touch-screen display.

Performance

Despite all the sophisticated technology, the 2019 Honda Ridgeline didn’t forget where it came from. There’s 280 horsepower, available all-wheel drive, four unique driving modes, and up to 5,000 lbs. of towing capacity to remind you that at the end of the day, you’re still in a truck.
