The 2013 Honda Ridgeline is equipped with features and materials that reinforce the fact that this pickup is able to take a high level of use and abuse. Read below to find out exactly how this new truck at Brown’s Arlington Honda is built for hauling all of your cargo.
Steel Cargo Bed
The materials that comprise the Honda Ridgeline’s Steel-Reinforced Composite (SRC) cargo bed are superior to steel both in terms of weight and strength, which makes the bed very difficult to dent or damage. Even when you’re carrying a massive payload, the bed is woven with steel underneath to ensure that the cargo bed’s shape, and rigidity, stay perfectly intact.
Most pickup trucks’ tailgates can be folded down to make it easier for the driver to do a number of things, such as adding bed space or providing a bench to sit on at a tailgate party. But, the Honda Ridgeline is unique in that it comes with a tailgate that can either be folded, or opened just like a door. The latter feature allows you to have easier access to your cargo without having to lean or climb into the bed.
Smart Storage Space
The new Honda Ridgeline is designed to make it easy to store and carry lots of stuff. To expand total bed space, Honda widened the truck and placed the wheel arches mostly outside of the bed. And, with tie-down cleats, cargo lights, and an 8.5-cubic inch lockable In-Bed Trunk, you can keep a ton of cargo hidden safely underneath your truck bed.
Towing and Payload Capabilities
Equipped properly, the standard 4WD system and strong V6 engine allow the truck to pull a total of 5,000 pounds. In terms of payload, the Honda Ridgeline is capable of taking a total of 1,500 pounds.
