  • Standard reversing camera

Exterior Features
The 2013 Honda Ridgeline is a midsize, crew cab pickup truck designed for light-duty use. Unlike its direct competitors, the Ridgeline features a unibody structural design and a 4-wheel independent suspension.

Four trim levels are available: RT, Sport, RTS, and RTL. The Ridgeline RT is equipped with power exterior mirrors, power-sliding rear window, heated windshield wiper de-icer grid, and a trailer hitch with pre-wiring to accommodate a 7-pin trailer harness. Steel 17-inch wheels identify the Ridgeline RT.

Interior Features
Standard equipment for the Ridgeline RT includes power windows, power door locks, remote keyless entry, cruise control, tilt steering wheel, trip computer, reversing camera display, and a stereo with a CD/MP3/WMA player.

Optional Features
Available in a limited number of paint colors, the Ridgeline Sport builds upon Ridgeline RT equipment with black-painted 18-inch aluminum wheels, fog lights, black lighting element trim, black honeycomb-pattern grille, and dark-tinted rear privacy glass. Inside, the Ridgeline Sport is equipped with an auxiliary audio input jack, leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, and all-weather floor mats.

The Ridgeline RTS offers 17-inch machined-finish aluminum wheels, body-color mirror housings and door handles, dual-zone automatic climate control, upgraded stereo with a CD changer, 10-way power driver's seat, and a 7-pin trailer harness.

At the top of the lineup, the Ridgeline RTL is equipped with leather seats, heated front seats, heated side mirrors, power sunroof, universal garage door opener, 115-volt power outlet, carpeted floor mats, satellite radio, and unique 18-inch aluminum wheels. Bluetooth connectivity and a navigation system are optional on the Ridgeline RTL.

Honda dealers can install numerous extra-cost accessories for the 2013 Ridgeline. Highlights include a roof rack, side step rails, tonneau cover for the bed, trailering equipment, sports equipment racks, bed and interior storage solutions, reversing sensors, satellite radio, and more.

Under the Hood
The 2013 Honda Ridgeline is equipped with a 3.5-liter V-6 engine generating 250 horsepower at 5,700 rpm and 247 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,300 rpm, driving all four wheels through a 5-speed automatic transmission and Honda's Variable Torque Management 4-wheel-drive system (VTM-4).

Under normal driving conditions, VTM-4 delivers power primarily to the Ridgeline's front wheels. When the system detects wheel slip, VTM-4 sends up to 70% of the engine's power to the rear wheels for added traction. Under challenging circumstances, a VTM-4 Lock setting continually splits power between the front and rear wheels at speeds up to 18 mph.

Fuel Economy
EPA fuel-economy estimates for the 2013 Honda Ridgeline are 15/21/17 mpg (city/highway/combined).

Every 2013 Ridgeline is equipped with 6 air bags, traction and stability control system, 4-wheel-disc anti-lock brakes with brake assist, and a reversing camera. Dealers can install reversing sensors for the truck's rear bumper.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has not performed crash tests on the 2013 Ridgeline, but does assign the truck a 4-star (out of 5) rollover resistance rating. As this overview is written, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has not rated the 2013 Ridgeline. However, the structurally identical 2012 model was named a \"Top Safety Pick\" by the Institute.
