Which Ridgeline is the Best?

With new standard features for 2020, the base Ridgeline Sport is pretty much all you need, and it's the best value in the truck's lineup. If you like the idea of more luxury features, like leather seating, and cool tech unique to the Ridgeline, like a truck bed audio system, consider upgrading to the RTL-E. Find a Honda Ridgeline for sale

Honda Ridgeline Safety

Is the 2020 Honda Ridgeline a Safe Car?

Every 2020 Honda Ridgeline comes with 4-wheel antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, front-side airbags, full-length side-curtain airbags and a backup camera. Plus, since it's related to the Honda Pilot family hauler, it has LATCH anchors in all three back seating positions which are lower than those of regular midsize trucks. Every 2020 Ridgeline comes standard with Honda Sensing, which includes collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist.

The government awarded the Ridgeline five stars for frontal, side and overall crash protection. The nonprofit Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave it a Top Safety Pick award for best-possible performance in all pertinent categories. This is truly impressive among midsize trucks.

2020 Honda Ridgeline vs the competition

2020 Toyota Tacoma -- If you want something more rugged and fun that can get seriously dirty off the beaten path, this is your truck. However, it's less comfortable, spacious and refined than its competitors.

2020 Chevrolet Colorado -- The Colorado is basically a miniature full-size truck that falls in between the Ridgeline and the Tacoma with regard to comfort and character.

2020 GMC Canyon -- The Canyon is the Colorado's GMC twin. It differentiates itself with its more luxurious Denali trim level.

2020 Ford Ranger -- The Ranger returned in 2019, making its way from other markets to ply its trade back in the big leagues of North America. It's a traditional pickup like the others in this segment.

Used Honda Ridgeline -- The current-generation Ridgeline has been around since the 2017 model years, which means early examples are starting to become pretty affordable on the used market.
