2011 Honda Ridgeline
Review, Prices, Comparisons, Pictures
The 2011 Ridgeline has four levels of trim:
- RT (base level of dark trim and 17" steel wheels)
- RTS (body-color trim and 17" alloy wheels)
- RTL (upholstered in leather, with fog lamps, 115-volt power outlet, satellite navigation system, and 18" alloy wheels)
- RTL with Navigation (RTL features, plus a Bluetooth link, and an integrated rearview camera)
All four 2011 versions have the style features standard to the Ridgeline:
- An integrated closed-box frame with unit-body construction
- Four-wheel drive
- Lockable In-Cargo-Bed Trunk
- Dual-action tailgate
- Integrated Class III trailer hitch
And the comfort features are the same too:
- Air conditioning
- Cruise control
- Audio system for CDs (and MP3s, except for the RT level)
- 60/40 rear seats
- Flat rear floor
The Bluetooth link in the RTL with Navigation let you use your cell phone hands-free, while the voice recognition of the Satellite-Linked Navigation System in the RTLs lets you navigate hands-free.
And when it comes to the power needed for towing, all the Ridgelines have a 250-horsepower 3.5 liter V-6 engine that will let you tow up to 5000 pounds, with a capacity for over 1500 pounds of payload in the cargo bed.
The Honda Bumper-to-Bumper Limited Warranty is 3 years or 36,000 miles; the Powertrain limited Warranty is for 5 years or 60,000 miles -- the Corrosion Limited Warranty is 5 years.

The 2011 Ridgeline is a proud successor in this line of Honda motor vehicles that combines the comfort of a car with the utility of a truck. Many accessories, from cargo bed covers to tailgate locks, are also available.
