The Ridgeline has an ultra-rigid unit body that’s reinforced with an integrated closed-box frame. This tow-friendly approach gives the Ridgeline extraordinary torsional rigidity.
The Ridgeline takes towing seriously. The RTX features a towing package standard.* There's also a 5-speed automatic transmission, a standard high-capacity radiator with dual 160-watt fans, a heavy-duty power steering cooler, a high-capacity ATF cooler, and it's pre-wired for a trailer connection (4-/7-pin). Large brake rotors at all four wheels and Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) ensure quick and deliberate stops when it matters most.
3.5-Liter, VTEC® V-6 Engine
A 3.5-liter, VTEC V-6 engine gives the Ridgeline optimum power and efficiency. This results in 247 hp and 245 lb-ft of torque. The VTEC engine combined with a two-stage intake manifold and a special fresh-air intake system provide power when you need it, with high-end horsepower and low-end torque even during extreme towing conditions. The fresh-air intake draws air from the top of the front grille to protect against dust and water intrusion during launches. You'll power your boat up even the steepest ramp in no time.
Torsional rigidity refers to how much a truck’s frame twists under the stress of towing, hauling or off-road driving. The integrated closed-box frame design of the Ridgeline gives it many times the torsional rigidity of other pickups.
