Unit-body Construction – Have a look at the 2017 Ridgeline’s new body

Unlike many trucks, which use body-on-frame design, Ridgeline features unit-body construction. This uses different strengths of steel throughout the entire structure — higher grades of steel where it’s needed — and then it’s completely welded and/or bonded together to create an extremely rigid structure. Benefits of unit-body construction include a lower floor height making loading cargo and getting in and out easier, improved isolation from wind noise and vibration and better driving characteristics.

Ridgeline features a powerful, 280-horsepower direct-injected engine that not only provides brisk acceleration, passing power and towing capacity, but also is impressively efficient for a truck.

  • Towing capacity: 5,000 lbs. (AWD) – 3,500 lbs. (2WD)
  • 262 lb-ft. of torque*
  • Variable Cylinder ManagementTM (VCM®)
  • 24-Valve SOHC i-VTEC®
  • Eco-Assist System™
