Difference in Safety


Both Ridgeline models have incredible safety features that would give anyone confidence on the road. Features like a standard Collision Mitigation Braking System which alerts the driver of imminent collisions and can even apply the brakes to prevent an accident. They also share a cross-path warning system in the rear bumper to assist when backing up, and a high-strength frame that provides extra protection in case of impact. One key feature that only the 2019 Ridgeline has are sensors which affect the level of force from the airbags when deployed. This feature allows passengers of all sizes to be protected adequately without using too much, or too little force. The side airbags are also able to sense whenever a child is leaning against the door, and will automatically shut off.


Comfort and Convenience


Although there isn’t much difference in the ergonomics between the two Ridgelines’, the convenient features are still enough to make your driving experience one to remember. Even though you might not want to, there are times where you’ll have to share your truck, but you won’t have to worry about re-adjusting the seat and mirrors. The Ridgeline RTL-E/Black Edition houses a memory system that activates different, customized settings for the outside mirror and driver’s seat. These models also come with a standard easy entry system that causes the driver’s seat to glide back when the door unlocks making entering and exiting a breeze.


Fuel Efficiency and Handling


There are two essential features that everyone always looks at when buying a new vehicle; fuel economy and how it drives. With the 2018 and 2019 Honda Ridgeline, both boast an incredible 19 city, and 26 highway MPG* while housing a standard cap-less fueling system that automatically opens and closes when fueling up. This feature reduces pollutant causing fuel evaporation and eliminates the need to handle a gas cap. So there are no losers here, only winners.
