Rugged, distinguished and capable, the 2012 Honda Ridgeline is a prime candidate for Stillwater Honda shoppers seeking a vehicle to handle any job. With a high-output 24-valve 3.5-liter VTEC® engine, the truck can generate an impressive 250 horsepower and 247 lb-ft of torque, giving other V8 trucks a run for their money. While it holds incredible power, shoppers will be happy to learn it is has some of the lowest emissions ratings in its class.
The impressive VTEC engine is paired with a 5-speed automatic transmission designed to accommodate even the heaviest of loads. Towing and hauling is even easier with revamps to the clutches, shafts, gear ratios and bearings. In addition, the automatic transmission features a fluid cooler to enhance durability even in the warmest conditions.
Regardless of your terrain, the Ridgeline can make traveling easy and safe. A VTM-4® four-wheel drive system automatically kicks in. If the vehicle is ever stuck in mud, traveling over ice or making its way through gravel, a VTM-4Lock® feature allows motorists to manually lock the rear differential to help kickstart performance. Furthermore, it stays manually locked up to 18 miles per hour in forward and reverse gears.
The 2012 Honda Ridgeline is the ideal vehicle for motorists who have work to do. Whether it’s towing or hauling, the Ridgeline is made for any job with an integrated Class III trailer hitch. Also standard is a high-capacity radiator with dual 160-watt fans, a heavy-duty power-steering fluid cooler, a high-capacity ATF cooler, and a trailer harness on select models. All four wheels have large brake rotors and Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) to help ensure quick and deliberate stops in the most crucial instances.
Aiding in creating a quieter and smoother ride—especially when towing—is the integrated closed-box frame with unit-body construction. In addition to cutting down on the noise made with body-on-frame trucks, the body style also provides better handling. Two integrated, fully boxed and reinforced frame rails with seven fully boxed cross members add strength and class-leading torsional rigidity.
Stillwater Honda shoppers will also find a Steel-Reinforced Composite (SRC) cargo bed, a durable feature designed to handle even the toughest use. The 5-foot bed is large enough for a thick stack of 4′ x 8′ plywood sheets to lie flat between the wheelwells, plus 8 heavy-duty tie-down cleats to hold up to 1,100 lbs of cargo.
As expected in the Honda name, the 2012 Ridgeline holds top-of-the-line safety features. Vehicle Stability Assist, for instance, keeps drivers in control in the case of under or oversteer. Furthermore, Brake Assist, Electronic Brake Distribution and 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes will help Stillwater Honda drivers easily come to a halt when needed, even if the vehicle is towing extra weight.
With other top-notch safety features, including bountiful airbags, a sturdy body structure, active head restraints, shoppers can expect extra security on many levels.
These are just a few of the top-tier safety features Stillwater Honda shoppers will find in the 2012 Ridgeline. For more information about the 2012 Honda Ridgeline or to experience all it has to offer first hand, call the leading Stillwater Honda dealer at 405-335-0050.
