2023 Honda Ridgeline Towing Capacity

Honda has streamlined the drivetrains employed by the 2023 Ridgeline compared to previous models, making the automaker’s robust and capable all-wheel drive system standard equipment. In addition to providing additional confidence on less-than-ideal road conditions, this choice has given all four 2023 Honda Ridgeline trim grades (Sport, EX-L, Touring, and Black Edition) a peak towing capacity of 2,267 kg (5,000 lbs.). Additionally, every trim comes wired with a seven-pin trailer connection.

But Honda goes further in making the following items standard across the board to help the truck tow more efficiently and safely:

  • Heavy-duty automatic transmission cooler
  • Pre-wired for trailer brake controller
  • Heavy-duty radiator with dual variable speed fans
