2019 Honda Ridgeline Receives IIHS Top Safety Pick Rating

2019 Honda Ridgeline IIHS Top Safety Pick

The 2019 Honda Ridgeline is a pickup truck that manages to stand out from its segment, especially when it comes to safety. This truck was recently named an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick when it is equipped with optional front crash prevention and specific headlights, making it the only pickup truck to earn this rating from the IIHS.*

 

Along with this safety rating, the Ridgeline also earned the top “Superior” rating from the IIHS for its available Collision Mitigation Braking System™. This system applies the brakes when a potential collision is detected on the road ahead and is part of the larger Honda Sensing® suite of safety technologies.

 

The Honda Sensing® package comes standard on the Ridgeline RTL-E and Black Edition Models. It includes features like Road Departure Mitigation, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, and Adaptive Cruise Control.

 

The Ridgeline is the seventh Honda model to be recognized by the IIHS. Along with this pickup truck, the 2019 Accord, CR-V, HR-V, Pilot, and Odyssey all received the IIHS Top Safety Pick title. The Insight was awarded the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ title. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has also given all 2019 Honda models that have been tested so far, including the Ridgeline, its top five-star overall vehicle score.

Chief among the praise from Car and Driver for the Ridgeline is the uniqueness of features it offers, including its Lockable In-Bed Trunk®, dual-action tailgate, the textured composite polymer that makes up its resistant bedliner, and the truck-bed audio system offered with the Ridgeline RTL-E and Black Edition. It also earned points for its style, spaciousness, and performance capabilities.

“The Ridgeline’s outside-the-mainstream design imbues it with real versatility, and make it something more than merely a shrunken version of a full-size pickup,” writes Car and Driver. “Furthermore, it boasts a roomy and comfortable cabin, and its superior ride and handling are befitting a sedan. The Honda also boasts excellent fuel economy and robust acceleration.”

In addition, the Ridgeline boasts plenty of capabilities with max towing of up to 5,000 pounds.** As Car and Driver so succinctly puts it, “The Honda Ridgeline proves that different can be better.” Find out how much better different truly can be with a test drive at Avery Greene Honda.
