Relative to other pickups, the 2010 Honda Ridgeline is a bit pricey, but with a glance at the features list, you'll feel better about it. The Ridgeline was already well equipped, and last year's refreshed lineup brought even more standard features.
Car and Driver notes that "all Ridgeline audio systems are now MP3/WMA capable, and all but the entry RT model gain auxiliary-input jacks." Cars.com points out that this is one of "the most [welcome] changes" to the Honda Ridgeline, which in base RT form comes with a "trip computer...tilt steering wheel, cruise control, and something that's not standard on most so-called entry-level trucks, a power sliding rear window." Upgrading to the 2010 Honda Ridgeline RTS trim earns upgraded wheels and door handles, as well as a 160-watt sound system. For those who want only the best, Cars.com states that the Honda Ridgeline RTL brings "leather upholstery, heated front seats and a power moonroof," as well as "satellite radio, a Homelink universal garage door opener and a 115-volt power outlet."
The 2010 Ridgeline doesn't offer a lot of options (some are available as accessories), and as can be expected from Honda, many of the best options are only offered on top trims. Car and Driver reports that the Ridgeline RTL "can now be optioned with 18-inch alloy wheels, Bluetooth connectivity, a rearview camera, and power lumbar support." Motor Trend reviewers add that the Honda Ridgeline offers a "backup camera with the nav system option." A number of features, like a full-size spare and cargo adapters, are offered as individual accessories.
Although options are limited and the top RTL trim is pricey, the 2010 Honda Ridgeline comes very well equipped even in its base RT form.
