SAN ANTONIO, Nov. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Over the years, regardless of the make or model, pickup trucks have followed the same design. It wasn't until Honda released the Ridgeline—their first foray into the pickup segment—a few years ago, that the manufacturer showed just how beneficial it could be to break free from the mold. Since it was unveiled back in 2005, the mid-size truck has seen its fair share of changes, but one fact that remains the same is that the Ridgeline is one of the most flexible pickups on the market.
The 2014 Honda Ridgeline received a few design upgrades, but Honda didn't put as much of an effort in the pickup compared to previous years, as they announced production of the Ridgeline will go on hiatus as soon as the 2014 models are completed. The break in production is scheduled to give the manufacturer time to redesign the Ridgeline, which is expected to make a return in 2016.
As with previous models, the 2014 Honda Ridgeline is equipped with one of the most versatile truck beds available. The sloped sides of the bed are still present and help the Ridgeline to stand out among its competitors. Consumers are also sure to appreciate that the dual-action tailgate is also present in the new model. The class-exclusive tailgate not only swings down like typical tailgates, but it also swings open like a door, making it easier to access the truck bed and lockable in-bed trunk—another one-of-a-kind feature found in the back of the Ridgeline.
Under the hood, the 2014 Honda Ridgeline employs the same 3.5-liter V-6 engine found in the previous models. The engine is capable of a 250 horsepower output which helps to deliver a towing capacity of 5,000 pounds and a payload which exceeds comparable competitors such as the 2014 Toyota Tacoma.
The 2014 Honda Ridgeline is currently available in the extensive inventory at Benson Honda in San Antonio.
