2012 Honda
Take it places
other pickup trucks
cant go.
Like a
galle
ry opening.
Of course a pickup truck has to be tough, rugged and powerful. But why stop there?
It ought to have a few more tricks up its sleeve. That’s why we built a tough, rugged,
powerful pickup that also has brains, style and sophistication. We gave it a closed-box
frame and a striking new Sport Trim, and we packed it with innovative features like
a lockable In-Bed Trunk® rearview camera (RTL with navigation1) and Bluetooth ®2
HandsFreeLink® (RTL with navigation), just to name a few. The result? We transformed a
vehicle that’s been known for its utility into one famous for its versatility. The Honda Ridgeline.
We thought ofthing,
so you can do almost
anything.
The name of the game is options. The Ridgeline has a large, hidden lockable
In-Bed Trunk, and an innovative cargo bed that can be configured many
different ways, so you can haul a lot more than you’re used to. And whether
you’re on pavement or dirt, the 250-hp engine, independent suspension
and sophisticated 4WD system get you there with power and grace.
The lockable In-Bed Trunk
keeps gear secure and out of
sight. Its weather-tight,
8.5 - cubic -foot capacity can
accommodate large items, like
golf clubs and coolers.3
Ridgeline’s cargo bed can
handle just about anything you

need to haul. And its sturdy
tailgate and available bed
extender give you even more
space to work with.
The dual-action tailgate opens
down like a typical truck, but
it also swings out to the side,
so you’ll have easy access to
your cargo and In-Bed Trunk.
Honda reminds you to properly secure items
stored in the cargo area.
Lockable In-Bed Trunk.
It’s officially OK
for a truck
to be this

Sit back, enjoy the ride, and leave the hard work to the truck. The Ridgeline’s unique body design creates a wider, deeper cabin
with plenty of room for five adults. And the smart details and high-tech touches throughout win over even the staunchest pickup
purists. The steering-wheel design features integrated buttons for the cruise control, stereo system and available Bluetooth2
HandsFreeLink. The available dual-zone automatic climate control system and heated front seats are also really easy to get used to.
The thoughtfully designed interior puts everything right
where it should be, like the center console with multiple
storage compartments and a 115-volt power outlet (RTL).
The available Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System1
with Voice Recognition always has your coordinates front
and center. And when you’re in reverse, the screen
doubles as a rearview camera display.
We’ve earned
our stripes
sinfety.
With all the work we’ve put into Ridgeline,
we’re most proud of our accomplishments
in safety. From its reinforced, rigid unit body
and six standard airbags to its sophisticated
stability systems, the Ridgeline is serious
about safety. And no matter which Ridgeline
you choose, you’ll be glad to know that each
and every safety feature comes standard.
