Used Pickup Trucks For Sale Under 5000 – The Honda Ridgeline is a new Honda pickup truck on the market. It uses Honda’s large unibody vehicle platform, along with Acura MDX and Honda Odyssey. This is supported by all aluminum 255 hp 3.5 L V6 coupled to a 5-speed automatic transmission with all wheels capable of pulling 5,000 lbs. The Ridgeline will be the first pickup truck with fully independent suspension.
Some of the more innovative features of the Ridgeline are the rear, which can be folded down or hung sideways, and “In-Bed Trunk” 8.5 cubic feet below the tailgate. The bed is integrated with the body, similar to the Chevrolet Avalanche. The Ridgeline comes with anti-lock brakes and side airbags as standard equipment.

The bed is 49.5 “x 60” with a tailgate above. With the back body down, you get 49.5 “x 79”. And remember, a truck also swings sideways so you can easily access luggage on the bed. Truck bodies are designed to support 300 lbs. When driving. Steel reinforced composite layers resist dents and corrosion. Another neat feature is enough tie on the bed and some cargo lights.
Standard towing features include a 4 pin and 7 pin prewiring, along with a brake controller. Heavy-duty radiator, power steering cooler, and transmission cooler keep things cool when work starts. Big 4 wheel disc brakes help stop faster with the help of Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD). The dealer must do is install a hitch and harness.
8 “ground clearance works well with 4 wheel independent suspension. Yes, all 4 wheels. Never been in a truck, but this is Honda. They want their truck to instill confidence in stable and responsive angles and feelings while maintaining quality kendara: The box frame and closed body unit means the truck is tough and ready to work.
Traction control is standard along with a rear locking differential for very low traction conditions. It can remain locked by pressing a button up to 18 mph. Along with traction control, you get stability control called Vehicle Stability Assist. This corrects your cornering problems before they even become a problem.
Tires are equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system that will become standard in all vehicles immediately (government mandate). The air bag is around the front, side and side. It will only spread what is needed depending on the type of accident. This safety feature along with ABS braking makes this one of the safest trucks on the road.
There are three trim levels starting with RT, RTS and luxury RTL. You can get a heated leather chair and moonroof. This facility is only considered available in the car. This truck also has a navigation system, homelink, and hidden cd changer.
The 22 gallon tank is enough for the estimated EPA mileage of 16 MPG and 21 MPG highways. Six color combinations come with 3 interior choices. Options include a bed, “decorative” tail lights, chrome bumper trim, 17 “wheels, body side guards, roof racks, fender flares, slides and towing packages mentioned above. I have also seen locking a tonneau hard cover for the bed , and a luggage divider on the bed. There is a larger brush protector for the front bumper that is available to you outside the vehicle.
Overall, it looks like a pretty good truck and is well thought out of Honda. Look at my Honda Ridgeline photos at the car show on my website.
