The Ridgeline is a very versatile vehicle. Not only is it an Awd truck but is also very comfortable for 5 adult passengers. The rear seat folds up for even more storage capability. The tail gate swings up or out and the trunk storage in the bed is an additional feature. I replaced a 2009 Ridgeline which was great, but the 2019 model is even better. It handles and rides even more smoothly than my previous Ridgeline.
After doing all of the homework through the 2017 & 2018 Ridgelines, to replace my old 1997 Honda Passport 4WD. I saw an ad that the 2019's were out and all I had to do is cross the next ridge and there he stood. One handsome crew-cab that built everything upon the years prior and they're all everything I'd been looking for in what has become the last vehicle I plan on owning. It's safety systems are VERY well integrated and easy to use, much like the navigation/HD Radio/Satellite radio. Found the majority of everything is within reach and easily accessible and a cinch to use without much work reading the manuals. Made decision to download them onto my Samsung S7 phone and Samsung S3 Tablet, now have quick easy access whenever needed for something. The ride was definitely a surprise as it handled beautifully during hard acceleration and braking while turning or hands-off braking. VERY smooth ride that you'll forget what you're in quite easily. Everything easy to adjust for seat positioning/height along with steering wheel adjustment with capability to save 2 auto settings. The cab interior is spacious and able to fit 5 large guys comfortably with plenty of storage throughout the interior and in-bed truck. Installed a 3 section hard tonneau cover making even more protected storage whenever needed. As far as I am concern, Honda has outdone themselves with the 2019 Ridgeline RTL-E which is nicely outfitted as is. Power rear center glass as well as power retractable/tiltable moonroof which I had to have since Passport ran all those years without a major fix being needed. So, with the way I saw it, it was just time to go over to the 2019 Ridgeline and it's NOT disappointed yet. Even with A/C running, it has plenty of power to get out of its own way and then some. The price agreed upon was worth it completely. Do yourself a favor and treat yourself to a test drive and you'll also see and feel everything I've mentioned here. Thank you.
