    2017 Honda Ridgeline Towing Review



    Towing 5,000 pounds isn’t what it used to be. The weight of steel and wood hasn’t changed but the towing capabilities and capacities of the vehicles responsible for moving them sure have.

    We have half-ton trucks that can pull over 12,000-pounds, heavy duty pickups that can move over 30,000 pounds, and a new crop of midsize trucks that are as capable as last decade’s half-tons. For most hauling needs, today’s midsize pickup is more than enough, and with Honda’s redesigned 2017 Ridgeline, you get a unique proposition in the segment.

    Honda rates the Ridgeline to tow 5,000 pounds, falling short of the Toyota Tacoma’s 6,800-pound max rating and the Chevy Colorado’s max rating of 7,700 pounds, though in the payload department, the Ridgeline stacks up well. It is the only midsize pickup to use a multi-link independent rear suspension, rather than a leaf spring setup, and it is rated for a maximum 1,584 pounds, four pounds more than what the Chevy Colorado can handle.

    I don't think the towing ability of the Ridgeline will have any impact on the potential customers or sales. People who want to do substantial towing will buy a traditional full frame truck with more towing capacity.

    If I were looking to buy a truck to tow with, it definitely wouldn't be the Ridgeline. 5,000 pounds is really nothing. It even mentioned in the article that the comfortable max limit was around 3,500 pounds. I will stick with my Duramax with the Allison transmission.
