Honda Ridgeline Towing Capacity by Trim Level

All Honda Ridgeline trims are powered by a 3.5L V6 engine that generates 280 hp with 262 lb-ft of torque and is paired with a smooth-shifting 9-speed automatic transmission with Shift-by-Wire and paddle shifters. As for the drivetrain, you’ll have the choice between a 2WD system and an AWD system.

Ridgeline Performance Features

The Ridgeline towing capability is enhanced by the addition of some smart performance features. For example, with the standard Intelligent Traction Management system you can choose between normal or snow modes on the 2WD models, and normal, snow, sand, or mud modes on the AWD models. All Ridgeline trim levels are also equipped with Hill Start Assist, which is designed to prevent rollback when switching your foot from the brake pedal to the gas pedal with the truck parked on an incline.
