About Honda Ridgeline
The 250-horsepower V6 engine in the 2014 Honda Ridgeline is the most powerful standard engine in the small class. It’s mated to a five-speed automatic transmission that shifts harshly at times, but all-wheel drive is standard for good overall handling. The Ridgeline’s unibody construction results in a more comfortable ride than competitors with body-on-frame construction. The Ridgeline gets 16 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway, according to the EPA. This places it far behind the 2014 Toyota Tacoma and 2014 Nissan Frontier.
The Ridgeline has a 5,000-pound towing capacity. It can also carry up to 1,100 pounds in its pickup bed, which has a distinctive in-bed trunk. The bed is 5 feet long, which is comparable to the Tacoma and Frontier base models. Longer beds are available from competitors, but the Ridgeline’s dual-action tailgate folds down or to the side, making loading and unloading easier.
In a four-door Crew Cab configuration, the 2014 Ridgeline seats five people. There are leather seats, heated front seats, and a power-adjustable driver’s seat. Taller drivers may find that front legroom is limited. The back seats could use more padding, but the Ridgeline has the best rear legroom in the class. In each of the three rear seats, there are complete sets of LATCH child-seat connectors.
The base Ridgeline comes standard with power windows and a six-speaker audio system. Bluetooth, dual-zone automatic climate control, and navigation with a larger rearview camera monitor are among the available features. The audio and climate controls are simple to use, but they are closer to the passenger. As a result, some drivers may find it difficult to reach them.
