What Changed for the 2010 Honda Ridgeline:

  • No changes for the Honda Ridgeline in 2010
  • RT, RTS and RTL trim levels continue
  • Highest-ranked midsize pickup for quality, performance and design in J.D. Power and Associates customer satisfaction studies
  • Receives 5-star crash-test ratings in government frontal- and side-impact tests
  • Named a \"Top Safety Pick\" by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety

The Honda Ridgeline is a car-based truck on a unibody chassis, which Honda says has more bending and torsional rigidity than a ladder-frame vehicle, without sacrificing payload capacity. The four-wheel independent suspension adds to the vehicle's stability, the automaker says, and creates enough space for a small storage trunk beneath the truck's bed-a feature exclusive to the model. The truck's five-foot bed is made of a steel-reinforced composite that Honda says is exceptionally resistant to rust and denting.

The 2010 Honda Ridgeline is mainly a carryover from the previous year. It's a five-seat vehicle with four doors and a crew cab, and is offered in three trim levels. The base RT has 17-inch wheels, under-seat storage in the rear seat, air conditioning, cruise control, a six-speaker sound system, power accessories, and a trip computer. The RTS upgrades the driver's seat, sound system, and climate control, while the RTL features 18-inch alloy wheels as standard, plus a sunroof, leather upholstery, and heated front seats. A navigation system with Bluetooth connectivity is available with the RTL.

All Ridgelines have all-wheel drive, a five-speed automatic transmission, and a 250-hp, 3.5-liter V6 engine that delivers 15 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway, by EPA estimates. Payload capacity is 1,500 lbs., and towing capacity is about 2.5 tons.

Standard safety features include active front head restraints, anti-lock disc brakes, stability assist with traction control, front-seat side airbags, and side curtain airbags. The NHTSA gave the Ridgeline five stars in front- and side-impact tests. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the Ridgeline \"Good\" ratings for frontal-offset and side-impacts.

Starting MSRP for the 2010 Honda Ridgeline was $28,450.
