Powering this peppy pickup forward is a 3.5-litre i-VTEC® V6 engine, capable of producing 280 horses and 262 lb-ft worth of torque. Variable Cylinder Management, along with Honda’s advanced 9-speed automatic transmission and a standard heavy-duty automatic transmission cooler, provides the type of efficiency you’d expect from a Honda—and far exceeding what you’d expect from a pickup. All of that adds up to one smooth ride, whether you’re cruising along or taking advantage of the Ridgeline’s 5,000 lb max towing capacity.
Speaking of smooth, the 2022 Honda Ridgeline employs fully independent front and rear suspensions, so you’ll enjoy a comfortable ride on any terrain. And we mean any terrain; Honda’s i-VTM4™ (intelligent Variable Torque Management) AWD system results in precise and controlled handling no matter what the road throws your way, thanks to its torque vectoring technology. Add in the standard Intelligent Traction Management System, and you can switch from Normal to Snow, Sand, or Mud mode at the push of a button, for unparalleled control in any season and on any terrain.
