2018 Honda Ridgeline Priced From $29,630, Adds Two New Color Choices

Honda announced pricing and range details on the 2018 Ridgeline light truck, which remains largely unchanged for the new model year.

Power is still provided by a 3.5-liter V6 with 280hp and 262lb-ft of torque, which is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Customers can choose between two- and all-wheel drive versions as well.

Honda claims class-leading fuel efficiency, too, with ratings of 19/26/22 MPG (city/highway/combined) for 2WD and 18/25/21 MPG for AWD models. Features like the ‘Dual-Action’ tailgate and the clever bed arrangement are still here to add practicality points to its score card.

The automaker also states that the cabin is made by high-quality, soft-touch materials that put the Ridgeline one step above the competition, while other features include an eight-inch infotainment system with a satellite-linked navigation, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

The range has been streamlined from 12 to nine trim levels for MY2018 in order to better suit the customer needs, offering at the same time more value. The only addition is the two new exterior color options for the Sport model, with White Diamond Pearl and Lunar Silver Metallic joining Crystal Black Pearl.

Pricing kicks off at $29,630 for the 2WD RT and goes all the way up to $43,120 for the range-topping AWD Black Edition. The 2018 Ridgeline arrives in Honda’s US dealership tomorrow.

    It’s got a good functional look. Nothing fancy or ornate. And it doesn’t have the angry looking plastic on the front like domestic trucks.
