The Honda Ridgeline hasn’t gained popularity for its ability to tow astonishing weight. Although it is plenty capable of handling typical towing jobs, the Ridgeline is better known for its incredible drivability, fuel efficiency, affordability, and comfort. The Ridgeline is more practical than the pricier full-size pickup trucks for many drivers, but that doesn’t mean it’s not one tough pickup that is ready to handle your regular towing and hauling demands.
2017 Honda Ridgeline Towing Capacity
Under the hood, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline sports a 3.5-liter V6 engine with both FWD and AWD options available. With FWD, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline can tow 3,500 pounds. With AWD, towing capacity increases 5,000 pounds, meaning you won’t have any problems handling typical towing jobs.
2017 Honda Ridgeline Payload Capacity
With a spacious 5 ft.x 5 ft.-4 in. bed frame (one of the largest in its segment), the Ridgeline features plenty of space for cargo. While space shouldn’t be an issue, it’s also important to be conscious of weight. The 2017 Honda Ridgeline payload capacity is 1,600 pounds, which is an important figure to keep in mind as you pack the truck. Exceeding the towing or payload capacity can cause serious and costly problems.
There are a few other cool features included with the 2017 Honda Ridgeline that help you make the most of the available space, including an in-bed storage compartment. The bed also features an audio system perfect for tailgating.
