2021 Honda Ridgeline Review
With the 2021 Honda Ridgeline, you can have a truck that is both highly capable in terms of towing and hauling and also has the versatility to provide smooth driving wherever you go around Slidell, Picayune, and St. Tammany Parish.
This makes this truck great for your daily commute as well as when you need to tow your fishing boat or heading off-roading. Below, our Honda of Slidell team shares the various capabilities of this truck!
Smooth and Rugged Performance
Powering the 2021 Ridgeline is a 280-horspower 3.5L V6 engine. This is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission that provides smooth and responsive acceleration. It is also built with an independent rear suspension and unibody construction, which helps give you excellent ride quality and handling as you drive this pickup.
The Honda Ridgeline also has the available iVTM4® torque-vectoring all-wheel drive system. This system is able to send up to 70 percent of the engine’s 262 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels to give this truck the traction needed when road conditions change. With this available AWD system, the 2021 Honda Ridgeline is also able to up to 5,000 pounds.
A Great Deal of Versatility
Beyond being able to tow a variety of gear, the bed of the Honda Ridgeline is also able to carry its fair share of gear. That is because the 2021 Ridgeline can carry a payload of 1,580 pounds when equipped with the available AWD system. This means you can load up the ATVs or other equipment you are taking with you for your weekend adventures.
Its bed is also wide enough to fit four-foot wide items. This means you can slide in plywood or drywall in the bed of the Honda Ridgeline when you are picking up supplies for your next home improvement project. There is also an additional 7.3 cubic feet of cargo space within the lockable In-Bed Trunk®. This will let you store items within your truck while still using the rest of the bed space of other gear.
The In-Bed Trunk® can even be converted into a cooler, which is great for your kid’s big game or your next camping trip. Then with the available Dual-Action Tailgate, it will be easy to load and unload all of your supplies since this lets you open the tailgate to the side or down.
Confidently Driving Your New Truck
While also giving you smooth, effortless handling, the 2021 Honda Ridgeline is also equipped with Honda Sensing®, which will provide you with even more confidence while driving this truck.
That is because Honda Sensing® comes with a list of driver-assistive features that are able to monitor your driving and surroundings to help keep you safe. With this, you will get systems like:
- Collision Mitigation Braking System™
- Road Departure Mitigation
- Lane Keeping Assist System
- Adaptive Cruise Control
These systems can do everything from automatically applying the brakes when the vehicle in front of you slows down to providing steering assistance to get you back in the lines of your lane whenever you start to drift.
