Ridgeline Rated as a Top-10 Tailgater for 2012

by Honda in the News on August 22, 2012

It’s hard to tell which is more important for a winning football team, a strong offensive line or an aggressive defensive line. But Honda Used Columbia said when it comes to tailgating, you can’t go wrong with the Ridgeline. In fact, Honda’s hardworking mid-size truck was just named one of the 10 Best Tailgating Vehicles of 2012 by KBB.com. Here’s the play-by-play, right from the Kelley Blue Book experts: “Function over form is the Honda Ridgeline’s forte, with tailgating value that far exceeds its visual appeal. For starters, there’s a drainable in-bed trunk that can be loaded with ice and used as a cooler. And its clever tailgate can swing out for easy access to the bed area or flip down for convenient seating.”

This season, the Ridgeline also offers a new model that will fit right in at just about any athletic endeavor. It’s the Honda Ridgeline Sport, which is outfitted with:

  • Exclusive 18-inch black aluminum-alloy wheels
  • A unique black honeycomb grille accented by a black frame
  • A leather-wrapped steering wheel with integrated audio controls
  • Fog lights
  • Rear privacy glass
  • All-weather floor mats
  • Black headlight and brake-light housings

And if you need to bring your own party supplies, Honda Dealers in Houston pointed out that the Ridgeline offers an 1,100-lb. payload, the ability to tow up to 5,000 lbs., and plenty of cargo-carrying solutions in the cabin, where owners can fit a full-size golf bag in a special storage area beneath the rear seats.

The Ridgeline might even be able to help your favorite team in the defensive backfield—after all, it is a Top Safety Pick of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), which means a lot to customers of
Honda Dealers MD.
