Although pricing has yet to be announced, Honda has provided details of its 2010 Honda Ridgeline pickup truck. The 2010 model is the upgraded version to the 2006 Ridgeline, the first 4-door pickup to get a 5-star crash safety rating.
Two trim levels will be available: RT and RTS. Erik Berkman, vice president of American Honda Motor, in a statement, said that the maximum tow rating of the new Ridgeline is 5,000 pounds, making the new Ridgeline excel at "hauling motorcycles, towing a boat or even taking the curvy road home." '
The model comes with standard equipment for towing including an integrated tow hitch, transmission and oil coolers, heavy duty brakes, dual radiator fans and a wiring harness for a 7-pin trailer hook up (pre-wiring only on RT).
Standard for all Ridgelines are anti-lock brakes, VSA, brake assist, advanced multiple-threshold driver's and front passenger's SRS airbags, front side airbags with passenger-side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS), two-row side-curtain airbags with a rollover sensor, front seat active head restraints, and a tire pressure monitoring system and daytime running lights.
