2019 Honda Ridgeline Driving Down Highway

The 2019 Honda Ridgeline towing capacity and 2019 Honda Ridgeline payload ratings demonstrate just what this popular new light truck can handle. Most drivers are surprised by its ability to balance engaging everyday performance with high scores for hauling and carrying, and we think you’ll see things the same way.

Power and MPG

Critics note that 2019 Honda Ridgeline performance delivers “a level of comfort and refinement that traditional pickups can’t match”, and that’s largely down to the vehicle’s exceptional powertrain.

  • 3.5L V6: Makes up to 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque.
  • Six-Speed Automatic Transmission: Makes up to 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway*.

Whether in the middle of the city or cruising on the highway, the Honda Ridgeline remains sharp and responsive. It even offers the reliability of all-wheel drive (AWD).

The Honda Ridgeline’s strong horsepower and torque ratings allow for surprisingly high tow ratings.
You can haul up to:

  • 3,500 lbs. with 2WD Configurations.
  • 5,000 lbs. with 4WD Configurations.

Those ratings mean anything from small trailers to speedboats can be pulled behind with ease. Better yet, each Honda Ridgeline model offers an integrated Class III Trailer Hitch.
