2019 Honda Ridgeline Towing

Taking command of the Honda Ridgeline towing capacity or the Honda Ridgeline payload rating provides the sure-fire power needed by most drivers, which might be why it’s become so popular. Highlights include:

  • Up to 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque.

  • Up to 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg* on the highway.

  • Up to 5,000 lbs. of Towing

  • Up to 1,580 lbs. Maximum Payload

Power and MPG

A huge part of the Honda Ridgeline’s appeal is its uncanny balance of commanding power and commute-friendly efficiency. That all comes down to one of the industry’s most finely-tuned powertrains:

  • 3.5L V6: Makes up to 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque.

  • Six-Speed Automatic Transmission: Makes up to 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.

To provide reliable traction through adverse weather conditions or across unpaved roads, the 2019 Honda Ridgeline is available with all-wheel drive (AWD) notes that the “sophisticated all-wheel-drive system provides multisurface traction.”

Towing and Payload Specs

The ability to conjure up such power across all trim levels gives the Honda Ridgeline muscle enough for serious towing:

  • 3,500 lbs. with 2WD Configurations.

  • 5,000 lbs. with 4WD Configurations.

That’s enough to take small trailers, boats, and other such items without worrying about going over.

Payload ratings differ a little more according to trim and configuration, so we put everything together on a handy chart.
