Comparing the 2018 and 2019 Honda Ridgeline in San Antonio

When it comes to upgrading your truck, it’s easy to choose between two different brands. But what if you’re comparing the same model? The 2019 Honda Ridgeline in San Antonio has made a few upgrades from its 2018 sibling, but are the differences significant enough to choose one over the other? Let us compare the 2018 and 2019 Honda Ridgeline, and you can decide for yourself.


Comfort and convenience go a long way when you spend more time driving than anything else, and the 2019 Honda Ridgeline is here to help! With 10-Way Power Seats to find that perfect position, the driver and front passenger can discover their unique sitting position for ultimate comfort. And there’s no need to worry about losing that ideal setting because the RTL-E/Black Edition has a memory system that can house different, customized settings for the driver’s seat. In addition to being incredibly customizable, the Ridgelines’ driver seat also has a standard easy entry system, where the seat glides back once the doors unlock, making it easier to enter and exit. As for the difference in technology between the 2018 and 2019 models, the newer Ridgeline now comes standard with USB ports for the RT, Sport, and RTL models.

Fuel Economy and Safety

With available Honda Sensing® suite for both 2018 and 2019 Honda Ridgelines, it safe to say that no matter which one you choose, you’ll be surrounded by safety. Features like the Collision Mitigation Braking System and rear cross-path warning system carried over from 2018, but there is one new feature that only the 2019 truck can boast about, and that is a smart airbag system. This system can sense passengers of all sizes and adjust the airbag force accordingly, so everyone is sufficiently protected. Another crucial part of safety is the construction of the vehicle, and the 2019 Honda Ridgeline doesn’t disappoint here either. Having a single molded unit provides a rigid structure, as well as a lighter vehicle overall, and being lighter significantly helps with fuel economy. This allows the 2WD models to receive a 26 MPG* highway rating!

Performance and Interior Space

Performance is always a given when it comes to trucks, but that doesn’t mean you should settle. The Honda Ridgeline combines advanced features with a lighter and stronger frame to create the ultimate truck. For the tough jobs, the Ridgeline comes in hot with an incredible 5,000-pound towing capacity and depending on trim level, a maximum payload capacity of 1,584 pounds! For the items that can’t take a ride in the bed, the rear-seats 60/40 Split Life have multiple configurations that can create room for just about anything from a bike to groceries.
