What's New for the 2018 Honda Ridgeline?

The 2018 Honda Ridgeline is the most recent vehicle to be added to the Honda company and their latest in the Ridgeline model line. The 2018 Ridgeline is like others in its family line, a mid-sized truck but one of the most excellent ones of its kind that has been made for comfort and being versatile. The Ridgeline contains few new features for this year such as the removal of the RTS trim level, though the Sports trim the same. For the most part, this year's truck is pretty much the same as last year's.

The 2018 Ridgeline is decked out with multiple trim levels, with each having their features. The Ridgeline comes in six different trim levels this year: the RT, Sport, RTL, RTL-T, RTL-E and the Black Edition. The RT trim is the basic trim model and contains necessary features like 18-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, air conditioning and a seven-speaker audio system. The Sports trim model is a slight upgrade and includes unique gray-painted alloy wheels, tailgate handles, keyless entry and tri-zone automatic climate control. The RTL trim adds leather seating, heated front seats, 8-way power adjustment settings for the driver's seat and heated outside mirrors for the all-wheel-drive versions. The RTL-T trim contains LED daytime running lights, a blind spot camera system, an 8-inch touchscreen with an audio system with navigation and Apple CarPlay access. The RTL-E trim includes more advanced safety gear such as adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, a heated steering wheel, driver seat memory settings and LED cargo lights. The Black Edition is the most advanced trim and is the same as the RTL-E, but decorated with black paint, black wheels, a black headliner and red-accented black leather seats.
