When you’re shopping around for a new truck, we know your first priority is probably towing capacity and cargo space. But what about other features that play a role in the convenience or comfort level of your truck. The 2019 Honda Ridgeline in Katy can give you the power and space you need with the convenient features you didn’t know you needed. Keep reading to learn about these innovations that will change the way you view a pickup truck.


Truck Bed Functionality


The main feature that makes a truck stand out amongst other vehicles is its bed, and you’ve never seen a pickup truck like this. The Ridgelines bed is full of unique features for your everyday problems like a Dual Action Tailgate that opens down like any traditional truck, but can also open to the side, so you have access to the In-Bed Trunk®. The In-Bed Trunk® is lockable and provides 7.3 cubic feet of space with a drain plug, so when tailgating season comes around, you can use this feature as an ice chest without compromising bed utility. Other features you can utilize during football season is the available 150W/400W outlet in the wall of the bed and the Truck Bed Audio System, which pumps out your favorite music using the bed walls. As for the work week, the bed of the Ridgeline has been designed with minimal wheel well housings, so you have more space for 4x8 sheets of plywood, or that offroad toy you’re fixing up.


Powerful Performance


Although most features of the Ridgeline are discrete and not easily noticed, one thing that can catch your eye is the powerful performance and payload capacity. Producing 280 horsepower and 262 pounds per foot of torque, this truck can get you from zero to sixty in seven seconds and reach a speed of 89 miles per hour in a quarter of a mile. Along with speed, the Ridgeline has an incredible payload capacity of 1,465 pounds for the Crew Cab and 1,580 pounds for the Crew Cab 4x4.


An Instinctive Interior


So we have gone over the basics of what makes a truck different from other vehicles, now let’s step inside and see how the interior holds up to luxurious standards in comfort. With new interior designs to accommodate five passengers and copious amounts of cargo space, the Ridgelines interior is breathtaking. Tri-Zone Automatic Climate Control keeps everyone throughout the cabin comfortable at their perfect temperature, while the leather-trimmed seats and leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob provide an upscale experience that is completely contradictory of the rugged exterior.
