The 2012 model year of the Honda Ridgeline is finally here and the Japanese based automaker has announced its official price, where the entry-level version, the RT, will cost 29.250 USD and the vehicle will be available in five trim levels.
According to Honda, the “new” Ridgeline is taking its power from a 3.5 liter VTEC V6 engine which is developing a total output of 250 HP at 5.700 rpm and has a peak torque of 4.300 rpm, mated to a five-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission with Grade Logic Control which is helping maintain the most appropriate gear when the vehicle is going uphill or downhill.
“I would like to lay to rest any rumors about the future of the Honda Ridgeline. In no uncertain terms, the reports in the media that we have plans to discontinue the Ridgeline pick-up truck are false. To the contrary, Ridgeline has a significant role in the Honda line-up and it is expected to continue in the foreseeable future. Ridgeline was developed to meet the needs of our customers”, said the Honda Truck Product Planning Manager, Sage Marie.
The Japanese based automaker is offering the 2012 model year Ridgeline in five trim levels, where the RT entry-level has been priced at 29.250 USD, the Sport comes at 29.995 USD, the RTS costs 31.995 USD, the RTL comes at 34.830 USD while for the top-of-the-line RTL with Navigation model, its future customers will have to pay 37.180 USD.
