Handle It All
Equipped with a Steel-Reinforced Composite (SRC) cargo bed, the Ridgeline is specially designed to take your abuse. Its 5-ft bed allows for a thick stack of 4' x 8' plywood sheets to lie flat between the wheelwells and 8 heavy-duty tie-down cleats secure up to 1,100 lbs of cargo. When you need to tow, the Ridgeline cooperates. A high-output V-6 engine and 4WD system work in perfect unison to pull 5,000 lbs of just about anything you put behind it.
Brains and Brawn
This truck is every bit as smart as it is tough. Well-designed storage spaces, including the 8.5-cu ft, hidden, lockable In-Bed Trunk® keep toolboxes or other large-size gear secure. Ingenious features like a dual-action tailgate give you the flexibility to unload the bed contents in whichever way makes the most sense.
Steel-Reinforced Composite (SRC) Cargo Bed
The bed in the Ridgeline has a Steel-Reinforced Composite (SRC) material that's both lighter and stronger than steel. Plus, it's resistant to dents and gouges. Steel crossmembers underneath the bed maintain integrity to combat the stress of heavy loads.
The SRC cargo bed provides unmatched flexibility, capability and durability. Its 5-ft length approaches that of other full-size crew-cab truck beds, and its 49 1/2-in width between wheelwells is wider than other trucks in its class. Because the wheel arches barely intrude into the bed, a large ATV, two motorcycles or a thick stack of 4-ft sheets of plywood can easily fit. Cargo lights and 8 heavy-duty tie-down cleats make loading simple.
The unique dual-action tailgate combines the strength of a conventional truck tailgate with unparalleled flexibility and user-friendliness. It can be swung open like a door, allowing easy access to the bed contents, or it can be lowered like a conventional tailgate. The 300-lb dynamic-load capacity can safely support the weight of most large loads such as motorcycles and ATVs.
