Most reviews read by TheCarConnection.com view the 2008 Honda Ridgeline as plentiful in features for cruising around town, commuting to work, hiding valuables, hauling cargo, towing big loads, and going on weekend adventures.
Kelley Blue Book reports that standard features on all four 2008 Honda Ridgeline models include air conditioning, tilt steering wheel, power windows, power locks, power sliding rear window, cruise control, keyless entry, automatic wipers, 100-watt six-speaker audio system with CD player, split lift rear seats with hidden storage capacity, and weatherproof floor mats. Edmunds mentions the "hidden trunk in the cargo bed that doubles as an ice chest" as well as "a dent-proof bed liner."
In terms of features in the Honda, 2008’s Ridgeline comes in four trim levels for the 2008 model year with the RT as the base model. The midlevel RTS comes with a seven-speaker 160-watt audio system and six-disc changer with subwoofer. The RTS also adds controls built into the steering wheel, dual-zone climate control, a power driver's seat, and alloy wheels.
The RTX is the sportiest trim level available, featuring a trailer hitch with trailing wiring, alloy wheels, a beefier grille, and door handles painted the same color as the truck's body, according to Cars.com.
The RTL is the Ridgeline's most luxurious ride, sporting a leather-trimmed interior, heated front seats, moonroof, XM Satellite Radio, and an electronic compass built into the rearview mirror of the Honda; 2008 Ridgelines can be outfitted with a voice recognition navigation system and mobile device auxiliary jack, so long as you’re buying the RTL model.
The 2008 Honda Ridgeline has an impressive list of features, some of which are only available on the most expensive version.
